"That's what happens when you close your eyes and swing as hard as you can," laughed Myhre.

Yes, there was something to laugh about despite the fact the Mudhens season ending one game short of the section tournament.

It looked pretty bleak in the sixth inning after Luverne broke open a 2-1 game with seven runs to take a 9-1 lead.

But as Manager Greg Shaikoski would say later, "We didn't die," and the Minneota Mudhens rallied to get within 9-7 and left two runners stranded in the ninth.

The loss to Luverne throws Minneota into the losers' bracket. They will play Wilmont, a winner over Pipestone for the right to came back Sunday and play Luverne.

busack-miller golf groupWhen over 60 people sign up to fight cancer, you’ve got something going. The Third Annual Best Ball Golf Tournament at Countryside Golf Course in Minneota last Saturday produced that many golfers. “We wanted different fund raiser ideas so we thought we’d try a golf fund raiser,” said Betsy Jo Kack, Captain of the Relay for Life event. “We decided this would be a different way to raise funds,” she said. “This fundraiser has been fantastic, it’s so much fun,” she added.  Funds are raised by those who register to golf. “Everything goes back to Relay for Life to fight cancer,” said Kack.
