Todd County Commissioners have refused to pay E&V Construction $53,000 in additional construction costs for the new court facility.

On Tuesday, February 4, the Browerville girls traveled to St. John’s Prep. We took control early with an 18-0 run. At the end of the first quarter, it was 19-4 and 39-9 at halftime. At the end of three quarters, it was 57-14 and a final score of 71-18. We really came out focused and took control of the game. From the very start, it was a good job by everyone involved.
The wrestling team lost two dual meets last week. The losses bring the season record to two wins versus nine losses. The scores were: Browerville 24, Menahga/Sebeka 48, and Browerville 18, Long Prairie-Grey Eagle 41. The team did not win many meets this year but according to Coach Sykora, “The young team has improved throughout the season.” Late in the season, the Tigers have been pinned less often and have been able to keep the opponent’s scores down.
