Bulldogs drop first game in playoffs, do or die on Saturday

Hinckley 4, Chisago Lakes 3
Aggressive baserunning by starting pitcher Hunter Lindstrom enabled the Bulldogs to tie their Region1C playoff game with the Hinckley Knights 3-3 in the top of the eighth inning.  But a double into the left field corner by Hinckley’s TJ Johnson drove in a runner from first to give the Knights a 4-3 walkoff win.  The win put Hinckley in the winner’s bracket and sent the Bulldogs to the loser’s bracket.  The Bulldogs will face the Ramsey Renegades this Saturday at 1 p.m. at Hinckley in the double-elimination tournament, and the loser will be eliminated from the playoffs.  The winner will go on to play Sunday at 11 a.m.  All games in the Region 1C tournament will be played at Brennan Field in Hinckley this season.

Eugene (Gene, Geno) Alich passed away, at his home, July 29, 2020, at the age of 81 years old, surrounded by his wife and family.  Gene was a witty character who loved having coffee with Friends, going for walks and spending time with his family.  An avid outdoorsman, he loved being out in the woods; especially in the fall during archery season.  He had a passion for introducing others to the outdoors and taught Firearm Safety for over 35 years, specializing in archery.  Fishing was also a favorite pastime stemming back to his childhood, be it on local lakes or the Great Lakes.  He was always willing to give tips on where to find the best local fishing spots for Walleye.

District back-to-learning plans down to fine details; final version release set for Aug. 7

The county is at 5.85 new cases of covid-19 per 10,000 population landing it squarely within the state guidance for letting kids return. But, both North Branch and Chisago Lakes School Districts will be making plans for the hybrid learning model this year.
