Doug Wolter: Kicking it forward
My understanding about “footgolf” is that it’s very much like traditional golf. But instead of using a little white dimpled ball, players use a regulation soccer ball. And they propel it not with a golf club, but instead kick it with their foot. Prairie View Golf Links manager...

Doug Wolter: One winter team (at least) is playing on
As a winter athlete in Minnesota, one of the great things about extending your season is that you not only get to compete in ever bigger events, but you get to delay practice for those messy spring sports. The Minnesota West Lady Jays basketball team opens competition today (5 p.m.)...

Doug Wolter: Huskies-Arrows rematch is for all the marbles
Jackson County Central football coach Tom Schuller is a Detroit Lions fan, so he knows all about comebacks. The Lions won their last two NFL games with remarkable second-half comebacks, both of which undoubtedly brought a smile to the face of the longtime Huskies mentor. No doubt...

Doug Wolter: A new season, a new set of issues
In high school sports, every new season presents a new set of issues. In my view, two programs are especially intriguing this fall. On the one hand, we have the Mountain Lake Area nine-man football team, which racked up unheard-of scores during the 2013 regular season before succumbing...

Doug Wolter: Is any nickname really safe?
A new front has been opened up in the nickname wars. Forget the Washington Redskins controversy for a moment. Consider the University of Mississippi. Until now, most nickname-bashing has been directed from the outside in — such as the Redskins situation, where owner Daniel Snyder...

Doug Wolter: Minnesota West baseball team's fortunes looking up
The Minnesota West Bluejays baseball team wasn’t as bad as its 5-25 record last spring. But part of the reason the team struggled was that its pitchers couldn’t consistently close the deal. That may change next year. Head coach TD Hostikka reports that four pitchers from beyond...

Doug Wolter: MCC's Scotting a rare commodity
Rare it is that a high school track and field athlete is so doubly talented as a speedster and as a weight man. But Murray County Central senior Tyler Scotting is one such individual. “He’s a ball of muscle,” says MCC co-head coach Dominick Damm. The coach most responsible...

Doug Wolter: It's never too late until you run out of time
I don’t know if the Worthington Trojans boys basketball team is going to realize its potential before it’s too late, but one final opportunity dangles temptingly like a ripe fruit. The beauty of high school sports is that as long as there’s a game on the schedule, the opportunity...
