Memories Gone By

News from Browerville's Past

25 Years Ago

February 25, 1999

When Browerville had two Catholic Churches, each church had its own choir. In 1976, Father Scholtz knew the churches would combine, so the chorus joined together and took turns singing at St. Peter’s and St. Joseph’s. Later, when the parishes were combined and named Christ the King, the choir took the name Unity Choir, because they wanted unity of the parish community.


The Tigers wrestlers competed in the Section VII tournament on Friday and Saturday. The tournament was the final qualifying competition for the state tournament. Five Tigers placed high in the tournament, but only Luke Katterhagen placed high enough to earn a trip to the state tournament. Luke placed second in the 171 pound weight class.
