BALL FIVE: Tigers and Lady Tigers can build off fall teams

Thursday and Saturday are the kind of start any fan of Mobridge-Pollock sports should appreciate. We get to see the wrestling team in action on Thursday and both basketball teams on the court on Saturday. The Tiger wrestlers and basketball players are coming off a successful fall where the football team was one of the best 11B teams in the […]

Ball Five: Here are some Tiger All-State football facts, past and present

As you could probably tell, it was a good time writing about our four All-State football players. Heck, it was fun writing about football all season long. I hope it made you a little nostalgic when you were reading about their exploits. Here are a couple more tidbits. Reese Cerney and Kregen Norder are the first Tigers to be named […]

BALL FIVE: ‘A’ tourney was a dandy

It’s too bad that each of the three volleyball tournaments couldn’t have had their own gym on Saturday. The final day of Class A volleyball was tightly played and dramatic, but our Class A sisters were sharing a gym with the Class B and Class AA tourneys, so some of that intensity had to have been lost or swallowed up […]

KATIE ZERR: Putting divisions aside will make a peaceful holiday

I can’t imagine what the discussion at dinner during these holidays would be like if all the Punch and Junne Zerr offspring would get together for the holidays. If anyone remembers my parents, my dad was an easy going man who loved his children with all of his heart. He was an old softy when it came to his kids. […]

BALL FIVE: Wolverines were part of a state first during 9B championship game

The good folks of Selby and Herreid did not have as much fun as they would have liked on Thursday in Brookings, but good folks, that was a veritable buzzsaw your young men ran into. We made it to Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium in time to watch the second half of the Viborg-Hurley win over Bon Homme. Based solely on […]

KATIE ZERR: Hostility grows inside commission chambers

Will this week’s meeting be a turning point for the Walworth County Commission? Will the measures taken by commissioners this week slow down the march towards anarchy in the courthouse? Or will bad feelings rise to yet a higher level, making it nearly impossible for the board to conduct the business of the county? It is tiring watching adults act […]

KATIE ZERR: With infrastructure comes tough decisions

There are times when having the advantages of a municipality with a larger population also has disadvantages in a place like Mobridge. Sitting in on the Mobridge City Council meeting Tuesday evening proved quite informative as a representative of an engineering firm contracted to research problem areas in the water department infrastructure shared findings with city officials and the crowd […]

BALL FIVE: Thursday was pinnacle match of Lady Tiger season

Last night wasn’t all that much fun, but Thursday night sure was! There is not too much to say about the Lady Tigers’ loss to Dakota Valley in the SoDak 16 game in Madison last night. Dakota Valley is a 29-3 team and the second-ranked team in Class A. Sioux Falls Christian is the only South Dakota team to beat […]

KATIE ZERR: Thanks to those who served and sacrificed

On Monday, Nov. 11, our nation honors those who served our country in the armed forces. It is the time when I think about those in my family, my grandfather McLaughlin, who served in World War I and his sons, my uncles, who also served. From my dad, Punchy Zerr, a sailor who spent time in the Pacific on an […]

BALL FIVE: Thursday will be a football donnybook

I have a feeling that Thursday night is going to be one son-of-a-gun of a football game. In baseball jargon, this football game is going to a donnybrook, a bruhaha. In case you missed it, the Tigers are hosting McCook Central/Montrose in the Class 11B quarterfinals at Tiger Stadium on Thursday. Unfortunately for me, the Fighting Cougars are not on […]
