On The Bench

New season
Hard to believe it’s football, volleyball, cross country season again.
But Thursday night the Minneota Vikings will open their football season against the Lakeview Lakers at home.
The volleyball and cross country teams have already started their 2014 campaigns.
The volleyball team had a rough start, but with so many new players, they will need some time to come together. But chances are good they will come together for another good season.
The football team has high hopes as they wait for the Minnesota High School League to tell them where they will play in the playoffs, Division 1 or 2. The league is waiting until all enrollment numbers are in before making the final pairings.  read entire story. . . .
