News from Clarissa's Past

25 Years Ago

May 4, 1997

Mr. Jenkins’ fifth-grade students at Eagle Valley Elementary recently participated in the Math Masters Competition in Osakis. Pictured are Matthew Harren, Alyssa Wagner, Adam Gadbaw, Megan Schlichting, and Mark LaVoie. Mark won an individual award and the team placed 10th out of 31. They were treated to a pizza party for their efforts and had a lot of interesting stories to tell about the event.


Jenny Sovich and Sarah Booker combined for a two-hit shutout against the Upsala Cardinals last Tuesday. The two only walked three batters for the game and struck out five in the effort. The defense played well as only two errors were committed by the Rebels.
