Wildcats showing well early, but Monti too much
The Wildcat girls swim team ushered in a new era under Head Coach Ellen Heath and without mainstay Thomi Lee by performing very well in the Princeton Relays.
The relays are a fun, early season meet that doesn’t feature races that the girls will see throughout the year but allows them to have fun teaming up in different relay combinations. The Wildcats were among six teams at the event.

Vikings tear through Denfeld
North Branch’s volleyball team turned over a new leaf last week in their early season destruction of Duluth Denfeld. The Hunters were overmatched from the start, just barely reaching double digits in two of the three sets. After cruising to a 25-11 victory in the first set, the Lady Vikes kept rolling, winning 25-8 in the second set. In the third set, it could’ve been easy for the Vikings to ease up and let Denfeld crawl back into it. But, to North Branch’s credit, they didn’t let up with their intensity, even when the subs checked in, winning 25-10. They looked to be in midseason form in their match up.

'Cats tennis tops Rangers
Chisago Lakes 4, Forest Lake 3
Forest Lake has long been Chisago Lakes’ nemesis in tennis. There have been some very competitive matches in the past few years as Chisago Lakes shed the “little brother/sister” tag in the rivalry and started to win some matches of their own. Last week’s season-opening 4-3 thriller was just the latest chapter in the novel that the teams have written.

Proving golf isn't just an old man's game
When most people think of golfers, they picture older men in pleated slacks and stuffy polos with an arrogant attitude. Little do they know that there is a youthful revolution sweeping the game, and nowhere is that more evident than at Chisago Lakes Golf Course.

Thompson keeps it rolling, wins sixth straight
Although most of the leaderboard had a national flair to it in the 2014 Chisago Lakes Triathlon, one thing remained constant: David Thompson. The St. Paul native won his sixth straight CL Tri, coming in first with a time of 4:03:10, but he only bested the field by a minute this year. Last year, Thompson won the event by almost 12 minutes.

Vikings and 'Cats schedules likely to stay very similar after district alignments announced
Minnesota State High School League schools should no longer have a reason to travel far out of state to find football opponents or play less than an eight-game regular season football schedule. The League Board of Directors today unanimously adopted a plan that places all member schools with football programs into Districts. The members of each district will divide the district into sub-districts, and then create a full schedule for each team. In nearly all cases the placement of schools will not negatively affect traditional rivalries or preferred opponents.

Softball player makes good on target in the Stacy outfield
The Stacy Lions Club had a first...a ballplayer hit a homerun on May 28 and the ball went through an 18-inch hole cutout of an advertising sign, at the Doyle Memorial Stacy Lions ballpark.  The Mike’s Repair and Towing  sign has been at centerfield  for years-- but until Kyle Peck threaded the needle the notion of winning the $100 cash prize was just an urban myth.   Incoming Lions President Bruce Jaworski was almost as excited to hand over the prize money last week as Peck was to claim it.  Peck grew up in Stacy,  lives in Isanti now  and is a fielder for the Running Aces ball team.  He achieved this rare feat using  a “Monsta” bat.  Also pictured left is Mike Olson.    ***  The  Stacy Lions also extend a big thank you to Xccent for its help erecting the new play structure at the ballfields.  Xccent (of Wyoming) was super to work with and we really appreciate the help on site, the Lions stated.  Come out and enjoy the facilities and some great softball games during the major mens and womens softball tourney--  happening at the fields Aug 1-3 during Stacy Days.

Top 11 stories of 2013-14 for CL and NB
Welcome back to the annual top 11 high school sports stories of the 2013-14 season. I decided to officially change it to a list of 11 last year when I just couldn’t figure out only 10. It makes my job a bit easier and gives the readers an extra memory to think back on. Last year’s top spot went to then-junior Thomi Lee. She won the state championship in the 500 yard freestyle, becoming the first swimmer to take first place at state in Chisago Lakes history. This year, there were no state champions among the winners here, but there were a few near-misses and some great moments in competition that really defined what the Chisago County area, and specifically North Branch and Chisago Lakes High Schools are all about. Each season had plenty of highlights, so without further ado, here is the top 11 list for this past school year.

Buboltz finishes in 22nd place for North Branch

Recently, when area golfers have made the state tournament, they struggle mightily at the grandiose meet. Golf is such a mental game, and even the slightest difference in a swing or approach can be the difference between a great day and a miserable day.
