Roger Olson was blessed with a great gift. The gift of teaching. He was a great educator, whether at home, in the classroom, in the gymnasium or on the field, Roger was always sharing information to help young people grow in their knowledge. Roger passed away on Saturday, but several former Fergus Falls students benefited from his wisdom through the years.
The Alexandria boys’ basketball team overcame a 13 point second half deficit, ending the game on a 28-13 run and taking a 66-64 victory over Richfield on Thursday afternoon at Target Center. The win puts the Cardinals into the Saturday night Class AAA title game against Minnehaha Academy.
Waseca shot 52.7% (29-55) from the field and placed three players in double figures as they recorded a 72-58 semifinal round victory over Fergus Falls on Wednesday at Target Center. The win was the tenth in a row for the Blue Jays and improved their season record to 22-1. The loss for the Otters ended their nine game winning streak as they finish the season with a record of 16-8.
