I like to check in with the Dakota Grappler website every week and look at the wrestling rankings.
In spite of the cold weather, Mobridge and area residents came out to celebrate Christmas, Saturday, Dec. 17 at the Christmas Extravaganza at Scherr-Howe Event Center.
The Lady Tigers put an end to a six-game losing streak (five this year and a season-ending loss last year) with a 40-35 win over Lemmon at Mobridge-Pollock H
After a hugely successful Friday, the Tigers came up short in the finals on Saturday, but used five second- and two third-place finishes to take second in team points at the Linton Holiday Tournament in Linton, N.D., over the weekend.
The Tigers learned that a lack of height can be a huge detriment over the week as they were defeated 51-37 by Herreid/Selby Area in the Mobridge Rotary Basketball Classic on Saturday before dropping a 58-46 game to Sully Buttes on Monday. Both games were played on the home court at Mobridge-Pollock High School Gym.

Even though there probably wasn’t anyone praising our recent stretch of frigid weather, there was no denying that it was perfect for baking. Like many, Mobridge resident Ashley Wientjes, employment specialist at the Department of Social Services, looks forward to this time of the year as one that allows her to carry on holiday baking traditions with her family.
