T-M-B Blue wins silver division in local basketball tourney
"The atmosphere was cool and comfortable, but the action was hot and heavy," said Tracy Assistant Coach Katie Gervais. "Twelve varsity girls basketball teams squared off in tourney action." Originally, the plan was for the T-M-B girls to split into 2 teams but an 11th hour decision by the Lake City Girls not to attend the event complicated the situation.
Since the Panther coaches' plan was to get as many girls as much playing time as possible, the decision was made to split the 18 Panther girls into 3 even squads.
An astounding 44 games were played in the 12 hour marathon. The local coaches received many compliments for the well-run event, which was run by parents, players and community members.
Legion goal is to win four straight
The Milroy Legion baseball team opened the District Tournament at Jackson last Thursday with a 5-2 win over Slayton. Jeremy Goltz went all the way on the mound for Milroy and gave up 2 runs on 2 hits while striking out 12 and walking only 1.
On Saturday the Milroy Legion Team lost to Jackson 10-2 to fall into the losers bracket in the District Legion Tournament at Jackson. "The wheels came off for us in the third when two questionable calls went against us," said Milroy Coach Chris Miller. "They picked up six runs on four hits in that inning."
On Sunday Milroy staved off elimination with a 5-4 win over Edgerton in the District Legion Tournament at Jackson. They will play again at Jackson on Friday.
The Milroy nine faces Luverne in a 2:30pm game Friday at Jackson, after winning two of three games in tournament action last week. But the team faces a big challenge this week in its quest to return to the state Legion baseball tournament, scheduled in Truman the first weekend in August.
