Memories Gone By
25 Years Ago
January 19, 1995
A large group of snowmobile riders took advantage of the fresh snow and beautiful weather on Sunday to tour Todd County trails. They paused at Petro Plus in Browerville on their way to Long Prairie from Lincoln. Many of the riders were from “all over”, as they put it, coming from as far away as the Twin Cities. They commented that Todd County has some of the finest groomed trails in the state.
The Tigers defeated Upsala Tuesday 65-56. Upsala took an early lead, but the Tigers went on a 24-12 run in the second quarter to take a 32-34 lead at half-time. Both teams played aggressive in the second half, but the Tigers defensive play kept the Cardinals at bay and went on to win their first conference game of the season 65-56.
Congratulations Chuck Carstensen, Poppen’s Tiger Athlete of the Week. Chuck’s 26 points helped the Tigers defeat Upsala last week, 65-56. Good going Chuck!
