Correy Hickman again leads MACA in scoring

First, let's recognize Pearl Harbor Day: Today (Wednesday, Dec. 7) is Pearl Harbor Day. Outside of the harbor on that fateful day, the destroyer Ward, its crew primarily reservists from St. Paul, attacks and sinks a Japanese midget submarine, the first shots fired on the date of infamy. Inside the harbor, Minneapolis-born Captain Franklin van Valkenburgh is killed on the bridge of his ship, the USS Arizona. He would be awarded the Medal of Honor by Congress.
Tigers 55, WCA 33
The MACA girls had winning margins of 30 and 22 points in the Case IH Invitational. The 22-point job was done on day 2 of this Benson-hosted affair. Our day 2 opponent was West Central Area. On Saturday, Dec. 3, our Tigers went to work in a 55-33 triumph.
Correy Hickman led our team in scoring in both games. Her output was 21 points in the 55-33 win over the Knights of West Central Area. She was sharp all over the court as she recorded six steals. Malory Anderson and Ashley Solvie each had five steals.
Ashley was tops in assists with four. Nicole Solvie attacked the boards to get seven rebounds, while Riley Decker and Jenna Howden each had five rebounds. Hickman built her team-best point total with three 3-pointers. Maddie Carrington had the other MACA 3-pointer.
We got our third win of the young season by building a halftime lead of 40-17. Wow! We cruised in both our games in the Case IH event.
Ashley Solvie's point total was nine. Nicole Solvie and Howden each put in eight points. Carrington's three-pointer constituted her point total. These three Tigers each scored two points: Anderson, Decker and Liz Dietz.
Wrestling: Tigers 54, New London-Spicer 28
Early-season success came in the form of a 54-28 win for the Tiger wrestlers over New London-Spicer. At 106 pounds, Ethan Lebrija was on the short end of a 13-5 major decision versus Blake Vagle. Josh Rohoff was a forfeit victor at 113 pounds. Austin Berlinger lost by fall in 2:29 vs. Nathan Vosika-Scherzberg. Ben Travis came on strong to win by fall over David Barthel in 3:24.
Jacob Boots got pinned by Sam Stageberg in :21. Gideon Joos won by fall in 5:42 over Tim Thein. Jared Rohloff was a fall victor over Nathan Thein in 3:30. Chase Metzger was a forfeit victor at 152.
Matt McNeil roared to a win by fall over Cade Barret in 2:40. The West Central Tribune reported that "name not available" of the Tigers won by fall over Nick Reiter in 1:35. Congratulations, "Name Not Available." We dropped the 182-pound weight slot via forfeit to NL-Spicer's Josh Soine.
Bain Laine lost by fall to Sebastian Bitzan in 2:34. Gage Wevley was a forfeit winner at 220 pounds. It was ditto for Gavin Warnock at 285 pounds.
Band concert December 19
There is no better way to embrace the holiday mood than to attend the December band concert at Morris Area High School! Come and enjoy our state of the art concert hall. Wanda Dagen directs the musicians. The music is set to start at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 19. Musicians in grades 7-12 will be featured.
Band and choir do not get the kind of media attention that sports does. You can be sure the music supplies just as much enrichment.
