The Mabel-Canton softball team opened the season with a tough test on Tuesday, April 18, with a home doubleheader against the Randolph Rockets, who came into the game at No. 8 in the state softball rankings. The Cougars battled hard but lost the first game 11-9 in eight innings and then dropped the nightcap 8-3.  
  • Mabel-Canton is one of more than 343 teams across Minnesota that have spent the past few weeks preparing for the Minnesota State High School Clay Target League spring season. Fielding teams are 343 schools in what’s rapidly becoming the fastest-growing sport in the state. As proof, look no further than the 2017 Minnesota Trap Shooting Championship, which has expanded this year to nine days.

  • Mabel-Canton falls in first three baseball games

  • Lanesboro/Fillmore Central/Mabel-Canton girls add four relay victories
    The Lanesboro/Fillmore Central/Mabel-Canton track teams took part in two meets last week, with the first one on Tuesday, April 18, at Stewartville. The Burros then went to the Plainview-Elgin-Millville meet on Friday. 
  • After nearly two weeks off because of the senior class trip, the Fillmore Central/Lanesboro baseball team is making up for lost time, winning three more games against Cotter (4-3), Southland (6-2) and the latest, this past Monday, against Rushford-Peterson (11-0).
  • The Fillmore Central girls opened the 2017 golf season with probably their toughest opponent they’re going to face this season, La Crescent, and lost that opening matchup by 10 strokes, 197-187.
  • Falcon softball team gets first win
    This past Monday, the Fillmore Central/Lanesboro softball team got its first win of the season over Mabel-Canton 9-4. No details of the win were available when this edition went to press.
  • The Lanesboro boys and girls golfers were on the road in the early part of the spring season. The girls sent one golfer to a tournament in Stewartville on April 11. The Burros took three girls to a Lake City tournament on Tuesday, April 18, where they struggled with early-season putting. 
  • L/FC/M-C girls run meet-record relay at Invitational meet
    The Lanesboro/Fillmore Central/Mabel-Canton track girls broke a 24-year-old meet relay record at the Al Heitman Invitational, their fourth meet of the season on Tuesday, April 11. Six girls and six boys teams took part. Both Stewartville teams showed some great depth as they finished first in their respective team competitions. The L/FC/M-C girls finished fourth in their team standings while the boys took fifth place. 
  • Falcons return to baseball action with win
    If there were any rough edges after a nearly two week layoff, it didn’t look like it, as the Fillmore Central/Lanesboro baseball team swept past Mabel-Canton 18-3 this past Monday. Colten Kraling got the five-inning win.
  • Schwichtenberg  receives All-Area honor
    Lanesboro’s Cole Schwichtenberg has received Honorable Mention on the 2017 Post Bulletin All-Area Basketball Team.

  • Cougar featured in  section baseball preview
    Mabel-Canton sophomore Drew Wyffels was named to the preseason All-Section 1A Baseball Team by Breakdown in its annual preview publication for Minnesota high school baseball.
  • Pitching rule promotes protection of high school arms
    There is a segment of baseball fans in America who’ve watched the game for a long time, and they may feel one of the changes that have not been positive for the game is the pitch count. Major league baseball pitchers aren’t as known for pitching as late into ballgames as they have in the past, due in part to a pitch count.
  • Veteran lineup, high expectations for Mabel-Canton softball team
    The Mabel-Canton softball team returns a lot of experience from last year’s squad that went 7-10 overall and 3-3 in the SEC East Division (third place) while showing a lot of potential during the season. The Cougars were the only SEC team to knock off champion Randolph during conference play last spring.
  • The Fillmore Central/Lanesboro baseball team beat La Crescent 5-3 in their season opener and have been on a break since then. Seniors from both of the schools have been on their senior trips, so games have been put on the back burner ‘til their return.
