Behrens chose both up and Ben made the choice to go for the win and took Behrens down to his back and got the fall to get his chance at going to state.

In the first round he won by fall over Jeff Fisher of WHN. In the semi-finals Collins lost in double over time to Dean Dahl of Breck. Each wrestler gained an escape, but could not score any other points in regulation.

In the second overtime Dahl was down and Eric could not keep him from escaping. In the wrestle backs Collins was able to get the fall over Gene Tscheda of BEV, and then pinned Dustin Schneeberger of WCA to place third.

In the first match he fell behind Dan Hayes of BEV to get into the 3rd and 4th place match. In the 3rdplace match Cory wrestled well, but came up on the short end of a 14-10 score against Matt Poole of WHN. Cory had a great year and section tournament. He will be back for us next year and great things will happen for him. 215: Matt Koval took on the sec- ond seed, Morgan Taylor of WCA. Koval wrestled very well in this match but was pinned. In the first round of the wrestle backs Matt won by fall over Jordan Trisco of Osakis. In the next match Matt lost a heart breaker to Matt Burnett of CACGB 4-3. In the fifth place match Matt won by injury default over Luke Boser of BEV. Matt had a good tournament. He was about three seconds from placing third. This was a good way for Koval to finish the year. He has improved all year for us. HWT: Jason Kellen came into the tournament as the first seed. In the first round Kellen opened with a :34 second fall over Jerad Olson of WCA. In the semi-finals Jason won by fall over Colby Larson of WHN in 1:06 to reach the finals for the second year in a row. In the finals Kellen was able to get the fall over Josh Denny of BHV in 1:00. Winning that match advanced Jason into the state meet for the sec- ond year in a row. He now leads the team with 33 wins, team points with 227, and falls with 28. We are looking for big things from Kellen at the State Meet. He has a good chance to be our first state place winner unless Eustice beats him to it.

Thursday the Lady Trojans headed to Clinton for a rematch with CGB. "We were hoping for a better out- come, but we fell behind right away 6- 16 in the first quarter and just didn't make a run at them at all," said Coach Hoernemann. The Lady Trojans were outscored each The Lady Trojans played the Milbank Bulldogs last Tues. evening in Milbank. The Trojans were able to stay in the game for a quarter and a half, but then the Bulldogs started pulling away after stealing the ball several times on the Lady Trojans' in- bounds passes. According to Coach Hoernemann, "We simply got lazy with our passes and didn't step to meet the ball. You can't do that against a quick team like Milbank." At half-time the score was 19-30 and the second half only got worse for the Lady Trojans. Milbank got extremely hot shoot- ing from the outside. They scored 26 points in the third quarter and another Trojan boys basketball hustle against much taller Canby team Ortonville's Boys Basketball team displayed Jekyll and Hyde tendencies against the two teams they played this past week. "We played a terrible game against YME on Tues.," said Coach Tim Giese. "Probably the worst basketball game this year." The Trojans played a good third quarter scoring 27 points against YME's 14, bringing the score to with- in two at 47-49. "At that point when we had a chance to take over the game, we ran out of gas," commented Giese. The final score was 63 to 75, as YME dominated the fourth quarter. Ben Zahrbock was 4 for 4 on three pointers for the night, scoring a total of thirteen. Tim Thompson con- tributed 10 on the evening. On the other hand, the Trojans played an outstanding game against Canby on Friday evening. The final score was 55-68, but the Trojans played with real hustle against Canby. "If the game were decided on hus- tle alone, we would have won," claims Giese. "The team was all over the floor, and did a great job defensively AAa/ce, a, against a team we don't match up against very favorably." Giese said, "The guys did a great job shutting down Canby's big guy, 6'8" Jeremy Van Klompenberg for the first three quarters At that height, he's " tough for us to match up against, and Matt Grabow did a great job contain- ing him. "In the fourth quarter, the big guy moved to the base line, and he was able to go over the top of the Trojan players. Grabow fouled out, but deserves credit for some tenacious defense against the taller player. Dan Larson scored" 15 for the Trojans, high scorer for the night, while Blayn Ronglien also had a great game contributing 12. "We had a few too many turnovers, and we need to make more of our freethrows," said the Trojan coach. "At the end of the game we felt we had to foul, and Canby did a great job making their freethrows. All in all, I was really happy to see the effort the team made." The final game of regular season will be played at Ortonville against Wheator on Thurs. Feb. 27. Parents will be acknowledged at the season finale. The Trojans play St. Johns in the first game of tournament play in the gym at the Collegeville Campus beginning at 7 p.m. on Tues., Mar. 4 i quarter except the last when the Trojans had 12 points to CGB's 11 points. "CGB had great balance in their offense; they were getting inside shots as well as outside shots throughout the evening from several different play- ers," said Hoernemann. The Trojans were led by Jenna Longhenry with 9, Amy Smith and Emily Sammon with 6, Stacy Wiegman with 4, Caitlin Spors and Amanda Erickson, and Sarah LaVoi with 3, and Lisa Spors with 2 points, Playoffs begin this week with Ortonville (#8 seed) meeting Wheaton (#9 seed) here in Ortonville on Tues. at 7 p.m, If the Trojans beat Wheaton they play the # 1 seed, Kimball, Thurs. at Minnewaska at 6 p.m. Area students on UMM Dean's list The University of Minnesota, Morris Dean's List for fall semester 2002 has been announced by Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Dean, John E Schwaller.

The Trojans were able to stay in the game for a quarter and a half, but then the Bulldogs started pulling away after stealing the ball several times on the Lady Trojans' in- bounds passes. According to Coach Hoernemann, "We simply got lazy with our passes and didn't step to meet the ball. You can't do that against a quick team like Milbank." At half-time the score was 19-30 and the second half only got worse for the Lady Trojans. Milbank got extremely hot shoot- ing from the outside. They scored 26 points in the third quarter and another Trojan boys basketball hustle against much taller Canby team Ortonville's Boys Basketball team displayed Jekyll and Hyde tendencies against the two teams they played this past week. "We played a terrible game against YME on Tues.," said Coach Tim Giese. "Probably the worst basketball game this year." The Trojans played a good third quarter scoring 27 points against YME's 14, bringing the score to with- in two at 47-49. "At that point when we had a chance to take over the game, we ran out of gas," commented Giese. The final score was 63 to 75, as YME dominated the fourth quarter. Ben Zahrbock was 4 for 4 on three pointers for the night, scoring a total of thirteen. Tim Thompson con- tributed 10 on the evening. On the other hand, the Trojans played an outstanding game against Canby on Friday evening. The final score was 55-68, but the Trojans played with real hustle against Canby. "If the game were decided on hus- tle alone, we would have won," claims Giese. "The team was all over the floor, and did a great job defensively AAa/ce, a, against a team we don't match up against very favorably." Giese said, "The guys did a great job shutting down Canby's big guy, 6'8" Jeremy Van Klompenberg for the first three quarters At that height, he's " tough for us to match up against, and Matt Grabow did a great job contain- ing him. "In the fourth quarter, the big guy moved to the base line, and he was able to go over the top of the Trojan players. Grabow fouled out, but deserves credit for some tenacious defense against the taller player. Dan Larson scored" 15 for the Trojans, high scorer for the night, while Blayn Ronglien also had a great game contributing 12. "We had a few too many turnovers, and we need to make more of our freethrows," said the Trojan coach. "At the end of the game we felt we had to foul, and Canby did a great job making their freethrows. All in all, I was really happy to see the effort the team made."
