The Packers wrestling team began its season last Tuesday and, so far, have shown nothing to suggest that this season will be any different from last year. The team hosted the Valley City Hi-Liners on Tuesday, beating them 64-10. They then traveled to Wahpeton on Friday to participate in the Dan Unruh Memorial Tournament, where they took first place as a team, scoring 290.5 points, 64.5 points higher than last year's first-place total.
The West Fargo girls' hockey team had its second game of the season on Friday night, and earned its second blowout victory, topping Dickinson 14-0. The team was led by senior forward Hayley Walsh, who netted four goals - one of them short-handed - and one assist. Senior forward Chelsea Wangen was right behind Walsh, scoring three goals of her own and one assist. The rest of the Packers' goals came from Kelly Krahn and Paige Lazorenko - who scored two goals each. Maddy Nelson, Torri Holland and Allison Springer each scored one.
The West Fargo boys hockey team started Friday night's game against the Fargo North Spartans as well as one could hope, scoring two goals in the first 90 seconds. However, the Spartans came roaring back, notching a 5-2 victory over the Packers. The Packers' goals came from junior forward Tyler Berginski - who scored in the first 20 seconds of the game with assists coming from Blake Nelson and Derrick LaCoe - and senior forward Tyler Crouse, who scored 57 seconds later with assists going to Nelson and Wyatt Fretheim. Junior goalie Bailey Vareberg had 29 saves for the Packers.

The Packers junior varsity cheer also took first at the event, beating runners-up Grand Fork-Red River for the title. "The girls showed up to give the best performance they could," Packers cheer coach Jenni Stewart said.

With the NHL season most likely not happening this year and the nearest major college hockey program roughly 80 miles away, local hockey fans like myself can, and probably should, look to the West Fargo Packers hockey teams to get their fix.

In the boys' first game, the team was led statistically by senior forward Derrick La

All previously approved paraprofessionals have been assigned to student services as specified in the students' individualized education plans (IEPs).
