Athletics and Activities Update November 27th

Girls’ Hockey

The River Lakes Stars girls’ hockey team opened the season last Tuesday against Buffalo and were defeated 6-4 playing without SJP senior goalie Jordyn Tomaszewski.

Jordyn ’18 returned to the line-up Saturday against powerhouse Roseau. In the game Jordyn had 51 saves and kept the team in the game throughout. One spectacular save even fooled the referee-who initially ruled a goal for Roseau only to be shown the puck in Jordyn’s glove!

Middle School Boys’ Basketball

Coaches JJ Roske and Billy Borgerding

The Middle School Boys’ Basketball teams took on Kimball on Nov. 20. Coach Roske says the seventh grade team won a nail biter thanks to a balanced scoring attack and two clutch free throws from Wally Wenner ’23.

The eighth graders fought hard in a loss to a tough opponent, despite 13 points from Anson Mies ’22.

Both teams have their next home game on November 28.
