It is officially the first week of competition for Minnesota High School Tennis teams and the rest of the sports will be following next week and the week after.

Girls Tennis only needs four practices and they can have their first matches on Friday!!!   The Fall sports season is officially here and we wish best of luck to all student-athletes, coaches, teams and schools on a great school year.  I have always been against full-time post secondary schooling because it takes away from the high school experience.  You are only young once, enjoy it!!!!

I have a look at some new digs for EGF Football, Perham athletics and I have the rosters for the Pirate fall sports teams and more.  If you are a football coach, keep an eye out on the coaches poll email coming next week!

Before we get into the real news....I found my new favorite Little League Baseball player.

 

----

I read some bad news this week when Pine River-Backus High School announced they won't field a varsity football team this season.  They only have 22 kids out 9-12 and most of them are freshman.  It is an unfortunate story for the kids involved and one story that has been happening more and more in the past few years. 
In the next decade, I am anticipating more coops and it will be interesting who is left standing on their own in 2028!

----

Frank Fee has been working hard, in retirement, and has received the football schedules the fastest he has ever had EVERY team in NW Minnesota turn them in.  So...Thank you to the AD's and coaches for the quick response!!!!

With that said, Frank has put together the master schedules for each area section.   They are listed below, just click on the section below to view.....or go to the sports page and click on the link there!

It was a sad weekend for Pequot Lakes when Wayne "Wheaties" Wallin passed away on Saturday.  For those of you that don't know, my mother (Jeanette) is a Wallin and is Wheaties' cousin.  Whenever Crookston would go to Pequot Lakes in football and basketball I always enjoyed the trip because I was able to see some of the Wallin family like Wheaties and my Uncle Calvin and his sons working the chains at football or the scoreboard at basketball games. 

Wheaties is Pequot Lakes High School athletics.  He was THE man in the know and was well respected.  Unfortunately his battle with cancer came to an end on Saturday.  We all know he is in a much better place, but he will be missed by everyone in Pequot Lakes and all the visiting coaches, players, and fans that had the opportunity to get to know him over the years.  His love for high school sports was unparalleled and noticed by everybody.
Visitation will be from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 16, at Kline Funeral Home in Pequot Lakes. Visitation will continue from 3-4 p.m., followed by the service at 4 p.m., Friday, Aug. 17, at Pequot Lakes High School.

 

I came across a great article by Pete Mohs of the Brainerd Dispatch (www.brainerddispatch.com) and have included his story from Monday's paper below -

Wayne "Wheaties" Wallin, a long-time sports booster for the Pequot Lakes Patriots, passed away after a battle with cancer Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Cuyuna Regional Medical Center in Crosby.

The 77-year-old Wallin was known for his love of the outdoors and sports, especially following his alma mater, the Pequot Lakes Patriots, for the past 40 years as a sports writer for the Pine and Lakes Echo Journal weekly newspaper.
"(Wheaties) was an icon for Pequot Lakes sports for so many years," said former Patriots football coach Chip Lohmiller. "He engaged in all sports, and was so involved with the kids during their high school years and beyond. He knew statistics for every sport and every player. He really cared about all the kids. We will all miss him."
Wallin played three sports, including four seasons of varsity baseball, at Pequot Lakes High School before graduating in 1959. He also played amatuer baseball as a power-hitting first baseman for 30 years with the Nisswa/Pequot Lakes Lions amateur baseball team before it folded in the mid-1980s.
"Even at that later stage in his career, Wheaties was still one of the best hitters in the area," said Bret Sergent, who played amateur baseball with Wallin. "I remember him hitting a home run, into a gale-force wind, in the bottom of the ninth against Crosby to win 7-6. It was a big game that year when we went to state (1979)."
Wallin, who worked full-time for 40 years at area lumber yards, started his part-time career as a sports writer with the Echo Journal (known at the time as the Lake Country Echo) newspaper in the mid-1970s. He started by covering amateur baseball, but his writing quickly expanded to covering Pequot Lakes boys and girls school teams.
One of Wallin's strengths as a reporter was building relationships with coaches and players at all levels.
"He was not just there for the varsity games, but for the junior varsity games," said former Pequot Lakes boys basketball coach Garry Grewe. "Wheaties was unique because he took time to talk with all the kids. He knew their names and how they're doing. He also knew most of the parents because he probably covered their teams, too."
Sergent, who is also the Pequot Lakes softball coach, said Wallin often traveled with his Patriot teams to cover road games.
"He rode thousands of miles on the bus with us through the years, and he also rode with me in my truck to our Junior Olympic games in the summer," Sergent said. "He was such a big part of our softball program that I made sure that he received section championship medals in 2013 and 2016, and a state runner-up medal in 2016. He earned them."
Wallin also covered Pine River-Backus High School athletic teams for many years after the Pine River Journal was purchased by the Lake County Echo. Wallin would eventually focus mainly on covering Pequot Lakes teams as the two newspapers were merged into the Echo Journal in 2012.
For the past six years, an annual boys and girls holiday basketball tournament that is named after Wallin is played each December at Pequot Lakes High School.
"The kids all liked Wheaties," said Grewe, who helped start the Wheaties Wallin Basketball Tournament. "No matter how poorly a team played, Wheaties never said or wrote a bad thing about them. He really was a positive individual."

CROOKSTON PIRATE BOYS SOCCER - Coach Don Cox

The Crookston Pirate Boys Soccer team has 40 kids out (7-12) so far this year and Coach Cox said this about practice so far - "Chris, Here is what we have, a rather large crop of seventh grade kids, which is great for the future and a very long-toothed upper class, which is good for an experienced varsity. Overall a very promising group, but I haven’t started shooting practice yet, so we’ll see how bright our stars will shine once I have them set their sites on those 8 by 24 foot barn walls."
The Pirates' first game will be Thursday, August 23 at Jamestown at 5:30 p.m.

JOKES (Do you have any good jokes - email them to chrisjfee@yahoo.com and I will put them in the feever

A young man who was also an avid golfer found himself with a few hours to spare one afternoon. He figured if he hurried and played very fast, he could get in nine holes before he had to head home. Just as he was about to tee off an old gentleman shuffled onto the tee and asked if he could accompany the young man as he was golfing alone. Not being able to say no, he allowed the old gent to join him. To his surprise the old man played fairly quickly. He didn't hit the ball far, but plodded along consistently and didn't waste much time. Finally, they reached the 9th fairway and the young man found himself with a tough shot. There was a large pine tree right in front of his ball - and directly between his ball and the green. After several minutes of debating how to hit the shot the old man finally said, "You know, when I was your age I'd hit the ball right over that tree." With that challenge placed before him, the youngster swung hard, hit the ball up, right smack into the top of the tree trunk and it thudded back on the ground not a foot from where it had originally lay. The old man offered one more comment, "Of course, when I was your age that pine tree was only three feet tall."

----

A golfer tried three straight times to hit a golf ball over the inlet of water between him and the green. But each time the ball splashes into the drink. In utter frustration the golfer said, "Caddie, take my clubs on in, I'm going to jump into the water and drown myself." The caddie replied, "I doubt that, sir. You couldn't keep your head down long enough to drown!"
