SPORTS FEEVER – March 2, 2023

SPORTS FEEVER by Chris Fee of KROX Radio –

I guess I programmed the post date for Sports Feever to post Wednesday morning.  It was supposed to be March 2.  So if you checked out the column on Wednesday, I have added a bit to the “updated column”

I was in Washington D.C. meeting with Minnesota senators and congressmen and women as part of the National Broadcasters Association’s State Leadership Conference.  I was one of 10 from Minnesota.

The Section 8A Boys Basketball seeds will be announced on March 5, but we already know who will be the top seed.  I take a look at the possible top seeding below. 

1..Thief River Falls (will be the top seed after beating Perham on Tuesday 48-46)
2. Perham (lost to TRF and split two meetings with DGF – are not close enough as of Wednesday for the tie-breaker)
3. Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton
4. Hawley
5. Barnesville

It is way to hard to figure out the tie-breakers now with the head-to-head, so I won’t try.

— — —


Here is how I see the seeding going – 


1. Sacred Heart will be the top seed with the head-to-head tie-breaker over Warren-Alvarado-Oslo
2. Warren-Alvarado-Oslo will be the second seed
3. Northern Freeze
4. Red Lake County (has a better conference record than GG)
5. Goodridge-Grygla (has a better conference record than KCC)
6. Kittson County Central
7. Stephen-Argyle
8. Climax-Fisher (Beat BGMR in head-to-head)
10. Lake of the Woods


  1. Fosston (beat Cass Lake-Bena in only head-to-head meeting)
  2. Cass Lake-Bena
  3. Fertile-Beltrami
  4. Ada0Borup/West
  5. Blackduck
  6. Win-E-Mac
  7. Mahnomen/Waubun
  8. Clearbrook-Gonvick
  9. Northome/Kelliher
  10. Bagley 

It looks like that is how seeding could/should go, depending on games played the rest of the week.  We know this much, there will be some interesting semi-finals and championship games in each sub-section.

The Minnesota Wrestling Coaches Association has announced the All-State Academic Individual wrestling team and it is an impressive collection of wrestlers.  Crookston’s Ethan Boll was named the team at 220 pounds.  The story from the Guilotine and the list of wresters are below.

The 2023 MWCA All-State Academic Individual Wrestling Team currently holds the bragging rights for the best student-athlete squad ever recognized by the MWCA. Not only did they surpass the 200 mark in nominations (the highest in at least 15 years.) They also have the highest average GPA of any MWCA All-State Individual Team with an astounding 3.78 GPA. This team is made up of great students who are also some of the best wrestlers that all of Minnesota has to offer. Earning a spot on this team can be more challenging than making the varsity squad at most schools. The MWCA only takes the top two student-athletes at each weight class to be recognized for this honor. With over 200 nominees and only 28 that receive the award, it’s quite a feat to be recognized!

This year’s team had nine students who boast a perfect 4.0 unweighted cumulative GPA! Beau Hudoba of Ogilvie, Deagan Captain and David Revering of Bertha-Hewitt/Verndale/Parkers Prairie, Zach Hanson of Lakeville North, Seth Newby of Bemidji, Luke Knudsen of New London-Spicer, Cade Jackson of Detroit Lakes, Soren Herzog of Simley and Will Sather of Eden Prairie. Each of these students currently finds themselves in the state rankings or has been past state place winners. Not only making them great students but also top-notch athletes!

This year’s roster includes 18 seniors and ten juniors. Class AA leads the way with eleven students on the team, followed by Class A with ten and Class AAA with seven. All six juniors who made the team in 2022 have also earned the honor again in 2023. These student-athletes are Dylan Dauffenbach of Stillwater, Zach Hanson, Cade Jackson, Max McEnelly of Waconia, Soren Herzog, and Gavin Nelson. You can often find this group of wrestlers at the top of the podium. They have amassed 17 state titles won by ten different student-athletes. McEnelly leads the way with three titles. Other state champions include Jack Nelson of Mound-Westonka, Nolan Ambrose of Jackson County Central, Koy Buesgens of New Prague, Zach Hanson, Ryder Rogotzke of Stillwater, Thomas Dineen of Benson, Ethan Boll of Crookston, Gavin Nelson of Simley and Will Sather. Many of these wrestlers are far above the 3.0 GPA requirement for consideration for this honor. 24 of 28 have over a 3.5 GPA. They definitely know how to work hard in the classroom as well as on the mat! This is even more evident by the fact this team has combined to win a total of 4648 matches over their impressive careers while attaining many other academic honors in their high school careers.

The members of this team are selected by using the following criteria:

  • Cumulative GPA – example: 3.95 x 2 = 790 points
  • Overall matches wrestled – wins and losses – 1 point per match
  • Winning percentage – 77% = 77 points
  • State Tournament Participation – 25 points per year
  • State Tournament Placement – 1st (50 points), 2nd (40), 3rd (35), 4th (25), 5th (20) and 6th (10)

This year’s group was made up of individuals from 24 schools. Simley, Jackson County Central, Stillwater, and Bertha-Hewitt/Verndale/Parkers Prairie each had two students selected. It also just happens that those four schools also have solid wrestling teams! There is typically a correlation between success in the classroom and success on the mat. These students and their teammates most definitely understand that.

This year our award winners are exceptional. There were also many outstanding nominees that we were unable to recognize. Our state’s coaches do a wonderful job of nominating their wrestlers. We have wrestlers from all over the state each year. Thanks to our dedicated coaches for taking the time to get their wrestlers recognized.

The 28 honorees will be recognized and awarded plaques by the MWCA during the state tournament at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, March 2-4.

A Texan was taking a taxi tour of London and was in a hurry. As they went by the Tower of London the cab driver explained what it was and that construction of it started in 1346 and was completed in 1412.

The Texan replied, “Shoot, a little old tower like that? In Houston we’d have that thing up in two weeks!”

Next they passed the House of Parliament – started in 1544 and completed in 1618.

“Well boy, we put up a bigger one than that in Dallas and it only took a year!”

As they passed Westminster Abbey the cab driver was silent.

“Whoah! What’s that over there?” asked the Texan.

The driver replied, “I don’t know, it wasn’t there yesterday.”

A woman was having a daytime affair while her husband was at work. One rainy day she was in bed with her boyfriend when, to her horror, she heard her husband’s car pull into the driveway.

‘Oh my God – Hurry! Grab your clothes and jump out the window. My husband’s home early!’

‘I can’t jump out the window. It’s raining out there!’

‘If my husband catches us in here, he’ll kill us both!’ she replied. ‘He’s got a hot temper and a gun, so the rain is the least of your problems!’

So the boyfriend scoots out of bed, grabs his clothes and jumps out the window! As he ran down the street in the pouring rain, he quickly discovered he had run right into the middle of the town’s annual marathon, so he started running along beside the others, about 300 of them.

Being naked, with his clothes tucked under his arm, he tried to blend in as best he could. After a little while a small group of runners who had been watching him with some curiosity, jogged closer.

Do you always run in the nude?’ one asked.

‘Oh yes!’ he replied, gasping in air. ‘It feels so wonderfully free!’

Another runner moved a long side. ‘Do you always run carrying your clothes with you under your arm?’

‘Oh, yes’ our friend answered breathlessly. ‘That way I can get dressed right at the end of the run and get in my car to go home!’

Then a third runner cast his eyes a little lower and asked, ‘Do you always wear a condom when you run?’

‘Nope..just when it’s raining.’

It was a stifling hot day and a man fainted in the middle of a busy intersection.

Traffic quickly piled up in all directions, so a woman rushed to help him.

When she knelt down to loosen his collar, a man emerged from the crowd, pushed her aside, and said, “It’s all right honey, I’ve had a course in first aid.”

The woman stood up and watched as he took the ill man’s pulse and prepared to administer artificial respiration.

At this point, she tapped him on the shoulder and said, “When you get to the part about calling a doctor, I’m already here.”
