High school sports: Iconic Cherokee coach Bud Mills dies at 89

High school sports: Iconic Cherokee coach Bud Mills dies at 89

The Minnesota State High School League has approved adjustments for the 2018 spring sports season due to the unseasonably cold temperatures and poor field conditions. As athletes are being recruited, college coaches have stated that they want more players who don't specialize because they tend to have more athletic abilities.

"I was born and raised in this town and I know what incredible pride this community has in its football program and I am excited to bring back a championship culture", he said.

The Trojans lost several key participants from last season's North State Class 5A runner-up squad.

Barbondy and players are now chomping at the bit to get started on getting the fields in shape for this year's season and have a work bee scheduled for Sunday, April 22 if anyone is looking to help out at the Esler Sports Complex slo-pitch fields.

The Alpena track teams had a meet in Davison canceled Friday and both teams spent time working together throughout the past week to shovel snow off of their track.

"I've been around this wrestling program for 30 years and it's really special to me, but baseball is my first love".

"It is extremely challenging".

"We'll learn a lot", coach James Miller said. "You're so limited to what you can do in a gym".

"It's a really fast paced game and it's always exciting, you can always do something new to get better".




With the Wildcats set to put the ball in the air more often this upcoming season, Valdosta High head coach Alan Rodemaker felt the team could use another set of eyes on the offensive staff.

"It's time to get to work".

"We have come to expect performances like that out of Evan anytime he steps on the field, really no matter who we play", Rositano said. "It's frustrating, but there's no point to really dwell on it".

The Cloquet-Esko-Carlton boys tennis team is in a bit better shape than other programs because three of their courts at Cloquet High School appear playable; however, they are also a week or two away from playing their first home game. "I think she's match-tough and match-ready".

Burgess' stellar play, particularly in the latter part of the season, was instrumental in Ada reaching the state tournament under first-year head coach Garland Parks. "As coaches, we just have that confidence, too". Miller said the team continues to look for depth on the line, but that will likely come when the freshmen arrive in the fall. He's being more vocal and taking that leadership role we need from that position.

"Everyone is in the same boat and it's a mass crunch".

"I just want to go out and be competitive every night and try to win races", he says. "It's hard on the coaches". After hitting a batter with one out in the third, he retired the next nine in a row. If we were doing agility drills or conditioning among other things, he took every opportunity, plus additional work, and just really turned himself into a player. Perhaps feeling over-confident after a four game win streak Manson struggled to get into a rhythm in the game as the Hornets swarmed around them with intensity.

Aalah Brown also returns for his junior season after getting his feet wet as the team's second-leading receiver a year ago with 11 catches for 168 yards and a score. The pitch count rule will be the biggest factor as pitchers are limited to a number of pitches they can throw in a given week.

Wendell will be attending Bucknell University to play Division I lacrosse and major in biology next year.
