CLOQUET -- Kaylee McMillen is nearly a foot shorter than Kassidy Steen, but if the two ever raced, the 5-foot-2 McMillen would get the better of her 6-foot-1 teammate. The Cloquet girls basketball looked better than all of their opponents at Monday night's Lake Superior Conference Jamboree at Duluth Denfeld, much in part due to players like McMillen, who aren't very big, but can run fast. "We want to go," said McMillen, a junior point guard and also cross country runner in the fall.
The Lake Superior Conference announces the following athletes have been named to the Boys and Girls Cross Country All Conference Team: BOYS First Team - Seniors Dylan Marvel and Jace Anderson and freshman Isaac Boedigheimer, all of of Cloquet, Zack Smith of Proctor, Ryan Kero of Hermantown, Nathaniel Krueger of Ashland, and Pentti Hanlon of Duluth Marshall.

For a family business that only got off the ground in 2012, it's pretty impressive to already be in the running to have an advertisement air during the Super Bowl. But that's where Jason Amundsen finds himself. Locally Laid Egg Company -- which he started with a backyard flock and grew into a serious business in no time flat -- is currently a top-four finalist of Intuit's "Small Business Big Game" competition. Not too shabby, for something that just came out of the blue. "We work with the University of Minnesota-Duluth's Center for Economic Development," Amundsen said.
Air Force Airman Natalie G. Peaney graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in San Antonio, Texas. Peaney completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills. Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force. Peaney, daughter of Julie and Randy Peaney of Carlton, is a 2012 graduate of Wrenshall School.

The groom is a 2005 graduate of Apple Valley High School.
ESKO -- Ashley Bergerson admitted she doesn't stand on her tippy toes to make herself look any taller than she is. That's because at a slender 5-foot-10, the Esko junior forward is already the tallest player on her basketball team. 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, Bergerson and her teammates return to ensure the results won't change. Esko has had to change their entire starting five, due to graduation, including the towering Trapp, now at UCLA.
Ezra Szczyrbak sang at his high school choir concert Monday evening, but it's the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Moose Lake senior's voice that's best heard from the football field. Szczyrbak is in the field of 10 Mr. Football finalists to be honored Sunday, Dec. 8, at the Doubletree Hotel in St.
MOOSE LAKE -- Survival mode. Along the sports spectrum, it's on the opposite end from Beast Mode. Survival mode is where the Moose Lake Area's boys hockey team found itself last season. The team endured one lopsided loss after another. They opened the campaign with just nine players. A school-hall recruiting effort bolstered the roster with former youth hockey players, some years removed from their last ice time, and even football players, who joined the fray out of devotion to school and classmates.
CLOQUET -- When she was growing up, Claudia Turner can vividly remember dribbling a basketball down in her family's basement. Her father, Keith, only allowed her to use her left hand. Last summer, faced with her decision on where to play women's collegiate basketball, Claudia chose Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, where Keith can once again give her a helping hand. Both father and daughter are intricate parts to the Thunder, as freshman Claudia is the team's starting point guard, while Keith -- also the school's fourth-year athletic director and football coach -- serves as the team
