 Among the Juniors

North Tartan remains in the running for possible state championships in all 4 of the top age groups and overall the Tartan folks seemed to be pretty happy. What made them happiest was North Tartan Herbie’s (after coach John Herbrechtsmeyer) revenge win over Fury 2019 Yellow 61-41 on Friday night. Herbie is rumored to have stomped out of a seeding meeting when the Yellow got the last of the top 8 seeds and Herbie’s team did not.

But his team ended up expending an awful lot of energy just getting to the Elite 8 and that’s where they ran out of gas. So, no, Herbie was one North Tartan guy who was not happy. In fact, nobody was happy that his team, as the #9 seed, had to play #1 North Tartan Coury in the quarter-finals, and Herbie was not happy with the play of his bigs in that game. Olivia Lane (Pequot Lakes), Frannie Hottinger (Cretin-Derham Hall) and Kallie Theisen (Wayzata) all took the ball inside successfully. Jadyn Hanson (St. Michael-Albertville) and Ashley Gustavson (Mankato East) held their own against Coury’s more celebrated guards, but it was nowhere near enough, as in 68-30 not enough.
