New London native Aaron Barber shot his lowest score -- a one-over par 73 -- on Friday, but still fell eight places to 136th at the PGA Tour Final Stage Qualifying at Winter Garden, Fla. At 221 (74-74-73), with three rounds remaining, he is 10 strokes out of the top 30, which earns a Tour card for the 2006 season.

WILLMAR -- Showing an inclination for long-distance shooting, Willmar rolled over its second Central Lakes Conference foe beating Sartell 59-27 on Friday night.

The wind was in my favor and I knew he would not smell me.
Benson Invite Benson's stingy defense shut down MACCRAY in the second to push the Braves to a 50-46 win in the first round of the Benson Invite Friday. The early game, Hastings beat Hancock 55-50.
