LUMBERJACK RECAP: Mixed Results On Sartell Day Tuesday

All six Lumberjack Fall sports teams were in action yesterday and all but the Cross Country teams were facing Sartell-St. Stephen. The Boys & Girls Soccer teams were both shut out, while the Girls Tennis Team cruised and the Girls Swimmers fell on the road. The Cross Country Boys won again and the Girls were runners up in St. Cloud.



The Bemidji Boys Soccer team lost their third 1-0 game of the year to the Sartell-St. Stephen Sabres at Chet Anderson Stadium last night. A full recap with highlights is available HERE from Joel Hoover.



The Jacks are 9-1 after a dominating 7-0 win at Sartell-St. Stephen Tuesday night. Savannah Haugen (6-0, 6-0), Emily Dondelinger (6-0, 6-0), Tatum Offerdahl (6-1, 6-0), and Darby Neis (6-1, 6-2) all won their singles matches and the three doubles tandems also cruised.
