I have been with the Tribune since the summer of 1998. I enjoy covering the high school aspect of the business and designing pages.

ST. PAUL -- Even though the Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City football program graduated numerous contributors from last year's 10-1 squad, many thought the Falcons could advance to the section championship again. The only difference, however, is that it would be in Section 4A not 5AA where Eden Valley-Watkins is the undisputed champion. The Falcons (6-4) will be playing for a berth in the state tournament for the fifth time in six years today when they take on top-seeded Saint Bernard's (6-3) at 7 p.m. at Hamline University in St. Paul.
MAYNARD -- The Renville County West football team didn't many players to start out the season. Still, the Jaguars fielded a team of 21 and even won a couple of games during the regular season. For their playoff game against MACCRAY Tuesday, however, the Jaguars were down to 14 players, mostly due to injuries that had occurred throughout the season. That number dropped to 13 when the game started because freshman running back Chris Feldman re-injured his ankle before kickoff. "He was bound and determined to play again, but he tweaked (his ankle injury) in warmups," said RCW coach Tim Tanner.
WILLMAR -- The Willmar Cardinals volleyball team is hosting a Breast Cancer Awareness match today at 7 p.m. with Central Lakes Conference rival Sartell. The first 100 fans will receive a free gift and area businesses will be donating money for points scored throughout the match. Players will also be wearing pink apparel. -- Jesse Fuchs
BENSON -- Chase Keimig and the rest of the Lac qui Parle Valley football team knew it couldn't happen again. And they weren't going to let it happen again. The Eagles lost their last seven games of the 2007 season and went the entire 2008 season without collecting a win. They opened this year with another loss, stretching their losing streak to 17 games. The streak would end at 17 as LQPV upended Benson 21-13 Friday in Benson. "The kids were pretty excited," said Eagles' coach Mark Bjornjeld. "It was a good bus ride home." The Eagles' previous win was also against Benson, back on Sept.
