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...

Doug Wolter: After lengthy break, Minnesota West teams get back to business
Wrestling is a tough sport. It’s physically hard on coaches as well as players. Everywhere you go, coaches like to get down on the mat with their wrestlers to teach them what they need to know. Veteran Minnesota West wrestling coach Bob Purcell does the same, but his body doesn’t...

Imagine the football team of your dreams. How would it perform? If you’re the kind of fan who dreams of pure, unadulterated dominance, it might perform like the Mountain Lake Area Wolverines. Five games into the 2013 high school football season, the Wolverines are pummeling their...

Doug Wolter: The best find a way to win in volleyball
It’s still early, as the cliché goes, but in assessing the area high school volleyball field the way things set up now, it’s safe to say that some of the best teams in 2012 are some of the best teams in 2013. Every year, good players graduate. And coaches remind us about how...

Doug Wolter: It's very early; area teams need the proper perspective
The high school football season has barely begun. So it’s too early to get overconfident. And too early to get demoralized, too. A rational perspective is what coaching staffs need to be drilling into their players these days. And nowhere are the extremes more evident than they...

Doug Wolter: With Timberwolves, skepticism comes with the territory
If only the Minnesota Timberwolves had had a few more competitive years in the historical record, they might have more die-hard fans today. As it is, I suspect many Wolves fans see themselves more as detached critics than invested fanatics.
