The tournament trail starts tonight (hopefully)
Here we go, March madness starts in February for high school sports teams. It's a very exciting time of the year but quite busy. I'm hoping to be in Marshall tonight for girls Section 2AAA basketball for the Cardinals. We'll have that game on KWLM. I'll get a chance to ride the team bus down to Marshall and enjoy the ride, normally I drive myself because the teams have to leave so early to get there ahead of the preliminary games. At tourney time though there's just the one game so my nap time isn't cut into quite so much. :-)
Tomorrow night I'll head for St. Paul and stay at the Cardinals team headquarters for the state wrestling tournament. They'll take on top ranked Apple Valley in their opening round match at 9am. Thank goodness Chad Carlson, former state champion, will be along to provide the play by play, I'll handle color duties. We'll have the Cards dual meets for you on Thursday. If the girls game tonight is pp'd it will be held on Thursday night in Marshall, then I don't know what I'll do.
Friday night up to St. Cloud Apollo as the Cardnal boys finish off their regular season trying to claim the Central Lakes Conference title. It would be their first since 2008, that would be a great accomplishment.
Busy few days ahead, bring it on!
