Girls basketball for the Eskomos will look different this season without the presence of Minnesota’s tallest-ever prep player — 6-foot-9 Savanna Trapp. However, Ashley Bergerson and her teammates return to ensure the results won’t change.
Winning their way to their school’s first state tournament since 2003 last year, Esko finished 27-6 and in fourth place, revolving around Casey Staniger and fellow senior teammates — and close friends — Kory Deadrick and Marc Peterson.
Cloquet senior Dillon Johnson is your typical catch-and-shoot, right-handed basketball player. Standing and shooting around, though, isn’t the same.
That’s exactly what the Cloquet senior was doing last week when the Lumberjacks opened basketball practice, as Johnson continues to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his left knee after injuring himself playing his favorite sport last May.
Gather around good friends and I will tell you a remarkable story.It would be the story of the 1963 Minnesota State High School Basketball Championship game between Cloquet and Marshall, arguably the most exciting and dramatic state final ever played in the 100-year history of the tournament. Editor's note: The version of this story that ran in the print edition of the Pine Journal was edited for length. This is not. Enjoy!
After qualifying for the Division I AAU State Championships in early May and after an 11th-place finish against the best competition in Minnesota in the Division I State Championships, the Northern Lights ninth-grade girls basketball team qualified for the AAU Division II National Championships in Orlando, Fla., July 8-13.
The Eskomos lost to Annandale 59-58 Saturday afternoon in St. Paul on the season’s final day, finishing fourth place in the Class AA State Championships. Yet for the prestigious Polar League school, making just their third-ever state appearance after trips in 2003 and 1955, it was an everlasting experience for Esko.
Laura Sylvester, the assistant athletic director and both volleyball and softball coach at the college, said losing a little sleep was no problem in order to host the 32nd annual event for the first time in school history, as well as in the state of Minnesota.
Eyeing their first state tournament berth in 13 years, Cloquet again came up short to rival Grand Rapids 64-58 in the Section 7AAA boys basketball championship before a sitting-in-the-aisles crowd last Friday night at Duluth Denfeld High School.
Brandon Newman and his teammates again finished in runner-up red as the Bombers were bested by fourth-ranked Upsala 76-56 in the Section 5A championship last Friday night at Crosby-Ironton High School.
