Four players scored in double figures as the Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines crushed Park Rapids 82-35 Friday in Mid-State Conference action. "We finally started a game fast," WDC head coach Brian Silbernick said. "We pressed a little the first half and created a few turnovers but the story was our transition game. Our posts ran the floor well, getting easy baskets inside on the fast break." Freshman Emily Miron had a big game for the Wolverines scoring a game-high 17 points to go along with 10 rebounds.
Tony Reurink is on his way back to state. The Wadena-Deer Creek freshman heavyweight will be competing in a special kind of state tournament in Champlin Park this weekend. He will be one of the more experienced wrestlers in the tournament, which is for seventh-, eighth- and ninth-graders. While some athletes like the total spectrum of sports, Reurink specializes in wrestling and makes it a year-around pursuit. While still a youngster in the world of prep wrestling, Reurink is far from being a novice.
As the Twins have demonstrated in the past it often only takes 2-3 new guys to make a trip to the World Series. Having thrilled their fans with back-to-back runs at the playoffs, the Twins are smart enough to know that they are close, very close, to what they accomplished in 1987 and 1991 when they bumped St. Louis and then Atlanta for the world championship. The Twins realized they were close in 1987 and went out and picked up veteran players like Jeff Reardon, Al Newman and Juan Berenguer to help them win their first World Series.
