The Mabel-Canton volleyball team is into the second week of preparation for the upcoming season. Any team would be proud to have put together last year's 32-5 overall record as well as 14-0 in the SEC East division. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The Cougars have won an amazing 19 straight Southeast Conference titles. Their win-loss record in conference play over those 19 seasons is 223 wins against only five conference losses, currently winning 98 straight conference matches.

  • Mabel-Canton cheerleaders earn team, individual honors

    Eight Mabel-Canton cheerleaders have recently returned from an Aug. 8 to 10 home camp conducted by two instructors from the National Cheerleader Association (NCA).

    Although half of the M-C squad was new to cheerleading this year, five Cougars - Katelyn Kleiboer, Sadie Morken, Brooklyn Wallin, Tori Wangen and Peyton Klimesh - earned an invitation to perform at a holiday parade event. This honor was based on their leadership and excellent execution of motion, dance, jumps, tumbling and stunting.



  • The Lanesboro Burro volleyball team opens the 2017 campaign, coming off a second-straight winning season a year ago. The Burros finished last season 12-9 overall and 9-5 in the SEC East Division (third place).

    It’s going to be a bit of a rebuilding season as the Burros graduated five seniors, including both of their All-SEC players (outside hitter Alyssa Gathje and setter Lexi Melander).

    Two of the top seven players from last season were set to return in Best Offensive Player Award winner Joelie Schreiber and 2016 Best Defensive Player Award winner Caroline Mayer. While Schreiber will lead the offense once again, Mayer was injured in a summer basketball league game and will miss the entire season.

  • Grand Meadow, most renown for a fourth consecutive state football championship, also claimed for the second straight year the most Southeast Conference athletic championships in school year 2016-17.

Sam Peters of FC/L was a second team selection while Falcon teammates Logan Corson, Riley Means and Collin Scott received honorable mention as did Mabel-Canton’s Drew Wyffels.

  • Belle Sand begins her final year  with Syracuse University volleyball
    Belle Sand left last week for Syracuse University in New York. While that in itself isn’t anything that noteworthy, the fact that the athletic standout from Mabel-Canton High School will be competing at the NCAA Division I level in volleyball for the fourth straight year, is.

  • The new 2017-2019 section assignments from the Minnesota State High School league (MSHSL) will have three of the last year’s top 9-man football teams in the state in the same section next autumn.

  • Cougar shooters cap season at MSHSL state tournament
    A young Mabel-Canton trap team placed 24th among the 40 trap teams that had qualified for the Minnesota State High School League State Championship Tournament. They weren’t just 24th out of the 40 teams, they were 24th in the entire state as over 300 teams from all nine classes (A through 9A) had vied to be among the 40 qualifiers for the MSHSL championship.

  • Vickerman, Wyffels, Graves receive Cougars’ highest athletic honors
    It’s something that hasn’t happened before, but Coranda Vickerman is the Mabel-Canton Female Athlete of the Year for an amazing third time. Sophomore Drew Wyffels is the 2017 Male Athlete of the Year. Vickerman and Courtney Graves are the Senior Scholar/Athlete Award recipients.

  • The weather, lack of participation and other factors have limited the Central Legion (Fillmore Central/Lanesboro) baseball team this season, but this past Monday the team mustered up nine players and downed Plainview-Elgin-Millville 8-2 at the Frank Jaszewski Athletic Complex. With the win the team is now 1-1 for the season.

  • Vickerman, Michels, Thorson earn All-SEC; five are All-Section
    The Mabel-Canton softball team had its most successful season in recent memory, both on and off the field. Southeast Conference softball coaches honored Mabel-Canton by selecting three Cougars to the All-SEC team. Section coaches also honored M-C by selecting five Cougars to the All-Section Team.

  • Eleven Lanesboro high school trap shooters took part in the Minnesota Clay Target Shooting League State Tournament in Alexandria on June 13. The Burros faced some good teams at the competition and even had to battle the elements as well.

  • Wyffels, Richardson receive All-Conference acclaim
    There’s no question it was a rebuilding year for the Mabel-Canton baseball team. However, that doesn’t mean Cougar fans didn’t see some good baseball during the season. One Mabel-Canton veteran was named to the All-SEC baseball team while conference coaches selected another Cougar as a member of the Honorable Mention team.
