Barnum school board members voted 4-2 in favor of hiring a new high school principal at their Tuesday meeting this week. The decision was not as straightforward as it otherwise might have been, however.
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.
It was veteran player Daron Mainville's boisterous voice, fist pumps and continual support that helped carry the Bombers to a thrilling 69-62 overtime victory over South Ridge in a Section 7A second-round girls basketball game last Thursday evening in Esko.
For Barnum sophomore guard Cheyanne Johnson, it all starts with the press.
Johnson and her teammates pressured neighboring host Carlton into a 48-34 Polar League defeat Monday, as the Bombers began the game with their 1-2-2 zone press en route to avenging an earlier loss to the rival Bulldogs.
