The Crookston Pirate Girls Hockey team’s season came to an end last weekend when they lost to the Warroad Warriors in the Section 8A semi-finals.  It wrapped up a much improved and very successful season.  You could definitely tell what girls put the time in in the weight room, dryland, and on the ice in the offseason.  Their hard work was noticed by everybody that watched them.  The girls went 12-14 on the year and it was an improvement of eight wins from last season where they were 4-19-1!!
Crookston/Mayville had two girls named to the all-section team for the first time in a long time with goalie Grace Koshney making the first team.  Nora Peterson was named to the second team and Coach Tim Moe was named coach of the year.

I like what Tim said after the award announcement to KROX’s Leo Blavin.  He said his award was for all the hard work the girls put in during the offseason and during the season.  And Tim has given a lot of credit to his assistant coaches too.  Coach of the Year is always a “team” effort.
The girls will be beefing up the schedule next year with the addition of Roseau and some other teams (we will touch on the schedule changes when Mr. Garmen has it finalized).

The Mayville/Hatton coop has been a good one for Crookston.   Both all-section players were from Mayville and they have a handful of very good players on the team.  It has been a great addition and has helped the team.
The Pirates will be adding some pretty good players to the team next year too with two Crookston eighth graders playing for Team Minnesota.  They have two more girls that could play varsity next year or wait another year or two, that are also playing for Team Minnesota this summer also.
Coach Moe told the girls last year that if they didn’t work hard in the offseason that they would get passed up and that happened in a few spots and it could happen again this offseason.  Competition is great and it makes everybody better.  The girls want to take the next step next year and get into the top 2.  If they work as hard as they did this past offseason it could be an exciting year next year.  The girls have to get bigger, faster, and stronger.

The Section 8A Boys Hockey seeding meeting was supposed to be held on Wednesday but was postponed to Thursday because of the weather.  Most seeds seem to be straight forward and I will give you what my seeds would be going into the meeting –

Warroad should be the unanimous number one seed.  East Grand Forks will be second and Thief River Falls will be third.  Those three are pretty easy.  It gets a little more interesting the rest of the way.
Detroit Lakes and Kittson County Central will be looking for the fourth seed.  KCC beat Detroit Lakes 5-2 on December 7.  Detroit Lakes beat KCC 2-1 in OT on January 25.  I personally believe the second meeting should always carry more weight.  Also, DL has played East Grand Forks and Warroad.   KCC played East Grand Forks and Thief River Falls.  It will come down to how the coaches vote, but either team can say they deserve the fourth seed.
The sixth seed will go to Red Lake Falls.  The Eagles didn’t beat a team ahead of them and beat all the teams below them.  The seventh seed should be Crookston as they beat Lake of the Woods and Park Rapids.  The eighth seed will be either Bagley-Fosston or Park Rapids.  The two teams split during the regular season with Bagley-Fosston winning the second meeting.

My thinking on how the seeding will go –
Team (Section record – Overall record)
1.Warroad  (8-0 – 23-2)
2. East Grand Forks (7-2 – 17-4-2)
3. Thief River Falls (6-4 – 13-10-1)
4. Detroit Lakes (7-3 – 13-9-2)
5. Kittson County Central (10-3 – 17-7)
6. Red Lake Falls (7-4 – 17-8)
7. Crookston (3-10 – 4-20)
8. Lake of the Woods (4-9 – 6-18)
9. Bagley-Fosston (1-7 – 5-16)
10. Park Rapids (1-12 – 4-20)

We have one week left of the regular season for girls basketball.  Section 8AA Girls Basketball seeds are all pretty much solidified with a few games left.

In the north – Hawley will be one, Roseau will be second, Crookston will be third, and Park Rapids will be fourth.  East Grand Forks and Dilworth-Glyndon Felton are fighting for the fifth seed and DGF has the tie-breaker with a two-point win over EGF earlier this season.  So I am thinking DGF will be fifth, EGF is sixth, Thief River Falls seventh and Warroad and Bagley will be playing the play-in game for the rights to play Hawley.

In the south – Fergus Falls has had the top seed wrapped up since the first week.  Pelican Rapids is undefeated and will be the second seed, Perham third and Menahga at the fourth spot.  The fifth seed looks like it will go to Breckenridge as they beat Barnesville twice during the regular season and have the tie-breaker.  It looks like Frazee will be the seventh seed because they beat Wadena-Deer Creek in their only meeting to earn the tie-breaker. And Staples-Motley will be the ninth seed.

The section QRF is below –  (QRF provided by
North – Team, record (QRF)

Section 8A Girls Basketball seeds are getting closer to being finalized and there will be some big games over the next week. Who is the favorite?  Who knows.  Everybody is beating everybody and it has been a wild finish.  I still think Warren-Alvarado-Oslo has to be the favorite at this time and will be going into the tournament, but it is wide open with about seven or eight teams having a chance!

West Sub-section – It looks like Warren-Alvarado-Oslo will be the top seed.  The second through fourth seeds are still up in the air.  Sacred Heart and BGMR play Monday, February 17.  IF BGMR wins their last three games (EGF, Sacred Heart, and Win-E-Mac) they will be the second seed.  If Sacred Heart beats BGMR on February 17 and wins out they will be the second seed. It looks like one way or the other RLCC will be the third seed.  RLCC has the tie-breaker over Sacred Heart.  The last week is going to be big for those three teams.  Red Lake Falls looks like they will be the fifth seed because they have the tie-breaker advantage over Stephen-Argyle.  The Northern Freeze will be the seventh seed, KCC at eight, Fertile-Beltrami nine and Climax-Fisher at the 10th seed.

The east sub-section – Fosston looks like they will be the top seed.  They have a tie-breaker over Cass Lake-Bena so that might be the difference.  The Panthers look like they will be the second seed, Red Lake at three, Clearbrook-Gonvick will be the fourth spot.  They have split with Blackduck, but have a better section record. Goodridge-Grygla looks to have the sixth spot tied up and it is too close to call on the last three seeds.  The last few games will be important for the final three teams for seeding purposes.

The Section qrf standings are below – (Compliments of

Section 8AA Boys Basketball has some interesting races for seeds, including for the top seed in the south sub-section.  Next week we will take a look at seed possibilities.  The standings/records as of Tuesday and QRF as of Monday are listed below –

In the North – East Grand Forks should be the top seed as they lead Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton and have the tie-breaker.  So those teams will be 1 and 2.  Things get interesting in the 3-6 spots.   Right now Hawley, Crookston, Warroad, and Thief River Falls are fighting for the third seed.  Hawley has the tiebreaker after beating all three teams this season.  So Hawley would have to be the favorite to get the three seed.  The fourth seed has Crookston, TRF, and Warroad.  Crookston beat Warroad twice and split with TRF.  Crookston, if healthy, will likely go 3-3 in their last six games and Thief River Falls will likely go 2-4 so it will who knows what will happen.  If Crookston isn’t healthy, they might struggle to win more than one game.  We will see. Warroad currently holds the tie-breaker with TRF after beating them earlier this year.  The two teams will meet in the final game of the year and we will know more at that point, obviously.   My prediction – Crookston four, Warroad five and TRF will be six.
Bagley looks like they will be seven, Roseau eight and Park Rapids nine.

SOUTH – It looks like Fergus Falls will get the top seed as they have a decent schedule the rest of the way and will pick up some bonus QRF points to edge Perham.
Barnesville is currently in the third spot, but they have lost four of their last five after losing Hunter Zenzen to an injury.  They split with Breckenridge and Pelican Rapids during the regular season so they don’t have the tie-breaker advantage in head-to-head.  Pelican Rapids and Breckenridge are right behind Barnesville and will play each other on Friday and if Breckenridge wins that game I am guessing they might be the third seed.  We will see.  It is too early to predict the third through fifth seed.
The sixth seed looks to be Wadena-Deer Creek and Frazee has the seventh seed locked up.  Menahga will be the eight and Staples-Motley the ninth seed.

1.East Grand Forks 19-1 (111.6)
2. Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton 17-5 (105.9)
3. Thief River Falls 9-10 (64.9)
4. Hawley 5-13 (60.8)
5. Crookston 8-12 (60.0)
6. Warroad 11-9 (59.1)
7. Bagley 8-13 (49.8)
8. Roseau 5-15 (38.5)
9. Park Rapids 2-19 (34.1)

1. Fergus Falls 17-4 (164.2)
2. Perham 19-0 (163.0)
3. Barnesville 12-7 (94.4)
4. Breckenridge 11-10 (90.8)
5. Pelican Rapids 15-7 (86.2)
6. Wadena-Deer Creek 13-8 (74.0)
7. Frazee 9-10 (63.4)
8. Menahga 10-11 (51.8)
9. Staples-Motley 4-16) (30.7)

Section 8A Boys Basketball has a big favorite and it is the defending Section champion Ada-Borup Cougars.  They have one loss on the year and that is when they get beat pretty good by 19-1 Henning!  The beat Fertile-Beltrami in a battle for the top seed last week.
BUT, I wouldn’t count out BGMR or Cass Lake-Bena right now.  The way BGMR is playing right now, I think they might be the best bet to knock off the favorite and they have athleticism, discipline, and defense to win the title.  I know this much, it will be an exciting 8A tourney and look forward to the games at the Ralph!

West –
Ada-Borup will be the top team.  I am predicting BGMR will finish strong with four wins, but I don’t think it will be enough to pass Fertile-Beltrami.  Plus Fertile-Beltrami has the tiebreaker after beating BGMR early in the season.
Kittson County Central and Red Lake County will be fighting for the fifth seed, but KCC has the tie-breaker with a win over the Rebels earlier this year.
Sacred Heart looks to have the sixth seed, followed by Stephen-Argyle at seven, Warren-Alvarado-Oslo at eight (beat the Freeze twice), Northern Freeze at nine and Climax-Fisher will be 10th.

East –
Cass Lake-Bena has the top seed in the east tied up.  Red Lake and Clearbrook-Gonvick will play Thursday for the second seed.  Blackduck looks to have the fourth seed locked up, Win-E-Mac is leading in the race for the fifth seed and Northome/Kelliher looks like they will be the six.  Goodridge-Grygla and Fosston will have a fight to the finish for the seventh seed and Lake of the Woods has the ninth seed solidified.

1.Ada-Borup 18-1 (113.4)
2. Fertile-Beltrami 20-3 (93.9)
3. BGMR 17-5 (90.5)
4. Kittson Co. Central 14-6 (87.3)
5. Red Lake County 18-4 (82.2)
6. Sacred Heart 11-11 (55.1)
7. Stephen-Argyle 8-14 (51.4)
8. Northern Freeze 8-13 (46.4)
9. Warren-Alvarado-Oslo 7-14 (43.1)
10. Climax-Fisher 1-19 (26.8)

Deep within a forest, a little turtle began to climb a tree. After hours of effort, he reached the top, jumped into the air waving his front legs and crashed to the ground. After recovering, he slowly climbed the tree again, jumped, and fell to the ground.
The turtle tried again and again while a couple of birds sitting on a branch watched his sad efforts. Finally, the female bird turned to her mate.
“Dear,” she chirped, “I think it’s time to tell him he’s adopted.”
