Clay Cottrell had enough arm for one victory but not enough for two as the Verndale Pirates went down in the Sub-Section 6A baseball tournament. The Pirates brushed off Lake Park-Audubon 7-2 Tuesday before falling to Sebeka 10-0 in Sub-Section 6A baseball action. Cottrell and the Pirates surrendered two runs in the first inning in their game with the Raiders but the senior right-hander was untouchable the rest of the way and gave up just three hits in gaining the victory. Cody Yungbauer went 2-for-4 in the victory with a double, two RBIs and two runs.
A four-run first inning sparked the Wadena-Deer Creek Shockers last Saturday as they notched a 10-7 victory over Fergus Falls at Legion Field. Travis George went 3-for-5, scored three runs and drove in two for the Shockers. Jordan Wohlwend, who scored three times without picking up a hit, went all nine innings on the hill for WDC. Wohlwend turned in a gutsy effort as he stayed in the game after being drilled in the shin by a liner in the sixth. The WDC right-hander gave up nine hits and five walks while striking out six.

The decision has been reached to close St. Ann's Catholic School in Wadena after 107 years. "It's been very difficult for everybody," St. Ann's principal Eileen Weber said. "This is the end of a very long tradition in the community." A February projection pointed to a decline in this year's K-6 enrollment of 40 students. St. Ann's had more than 400 students at one time but by the 2005-2006 school year the enrollment had fallen to 23. St. Ann's began rebuilding their enrollment at that point with a goal of 60 students but that goal was not reached.
