The speech teams from Sauk Centre and Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa will be well-represented at the Class 1A state speech meet after both teams had terrific showings at the Section 5A meet in Melrose on Saturday.

Sauk Centre had four team members earn section championships, while B-B-E had three team members take first place in their respective categories. Team standings were still being computed as this story was posted.

Heading to the state speech meet from Sauk Centre are Sarah Nelson (first place in great speeches), Charlie Barhorst and Richard Polipnick (first place in duo interpretation), Lily Satterlee (first place in poetry) and Briana Ziemer (second place in drama) and Rebecca Engle (second place in original oratory).

Head coach of the Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Jaguars for 21 seasons, B-B-E elementary teacher and boys' basketball coach Dave Montbriand announced his retirement from the coaching ranks today.

Montbriand's letter of resignation and retirement hasn't been acted on by the B-B-E school board, but that will be addressed at their regular April meeting.

"Upon the school board acting on it, the search for a new head coach will begin. I hope to remain in the program at a lower level as I continue to love basketball," said Montbriand.  "I feel very confident that my decision is the right one, and I look forward to supporting the new coach in any way I can."

B-B-E basketball game in Alexandria is on!


PHOTO BY RANDY OLSON The street in front of the B-B-E elementary school is a virtual skating rink. Rural roads are no better in Jaguar Country or elsewhere across central Minnesota.

The section committee has decided to have tonight's game at 7 p.m. in Alexandria between B-B-E and Browerville boys.

Stay tuned for further announcements at http://bbejaguars.blogspot.com.

At 09:20, a Sauk Centre resident spoke to the Herald relaying her firsthand account of a treacherous, 40-minute long trip from Sauk Centre to Freeport. At least 12 semi trucks were in the ditch during that 15-mile stretch. This traveler counted four semis in the ditch between Sauk Centre and the Meire Grove I-94 exit.

For all fans and followers of the Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa boys' basketball team: the Section 5A boys' basketball title game between the top-ranked Jaguars and the Sub-Section 5A-North champion Browerville Tigers has been moved to Jefferson high school in Alexandria. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.

The game was originally scheduled for the Crosby-Ironton high school, but with the predicted large following of both B-B-E and Browerville fans, section officials made the change on the venue at 10 a.m. Wednesday morning. The C-I high school has an official capacity of 1,698, whereas Jefferson high school holds upwards of 2,500 fans. Another interesting twist is that this game will be the final basketball game held at Jefferson high school, which opened in 1958. For the 2014-15 season, the Alexandria Cardinals basketball teams will christen a brand new 9-12 high school on the southeast side of town.
