Eagles flying high headed toward tournament time


By Jerry W. Kram
The New Town Lady Eagles tuned up for this week’s District 15 tournament with a match against the highly regarded Indians of Four Winds-Minnewaukan. The Eagles fell 77-64, but will still be the top seed in the district tournament.
The Eagles boys basketball team stumbled with their second loss of the season to the Standing Rock Warriors 76-66. Because of limits on how many quarters varsity players can play, New Town played its junior varsity against 13-3 Turtle Lake-Mercer-McClusky Trojans, and while the younger players held their own, 16 second half fouls, including three technical fouls, allowed Trapper Jacobs to score 50 points and lead TLMM to the 81-73 victory.
