|Top-seeded Wildcats can't solve Grand Rapids in sections|
Chisago Lakes 2, North Branch 1
Chisago Lakes’ Hunter Kral grounded a ball through a drawn-in North Branch Viking infield to score Nick Wasko from third base and give the Wildcats a 2-1 win over the Vikings in a Section 7AAA elimination game Tuesday, June 8 at St. Francis. Nathan Zingerman started and went six innings for the Wildcats. He allowed one earned run on five hits, walked one and struck out seven. Reed Marquardt pitched a scoreless seventh to pick up the win. He allowed a hit and a walk but struck out three batters. Devon Schulte started and went two innings for the Vikings. He allowed one earned run on three hits, walked none and struck out one. Bryce Skiba pitched four-plus innings of solid relief for the Vikings. He allowed one run on three hits, walked two and struck out five. The win sent the Wildcats to the section championship game against Grand Rapids the next day, and the loss ended the season for the Vikings.
Helen L. Klein, age 82, of Rush City and formerly of North Branch and Lindstrom passed away June 7, 2021 when the Angels called home another of God’s children.
|UPDATE: Chisago Lakes puts brakes on fall levy week after approving it|
EDITOR'S NOTE: This story covers the Wednesday, June 9 special meeting and appeared in our Thursday, June 17 issue. During the Chisago Lakes' School Board regular meeting on Thursday, June 17, the board voted to rescind the motion to go for a fall levy after meeting with consultants, who informed them the short timeline would not work.
The board still plans to go for a levy in 2022, but they wanted to make sure this wasn't a rushed process and did not set a specific 2022 date for a levy vote.
