The NRHEG boys’ basketball team is starting to get a bit predictable.

All they do is win.

The Panthers remained unbeaten last week, dispatching arch-rival WEM in a key Gopher Conference contest while taking nonconference decisions over Kenyon-Wanamingo and Hayfield. Coach Pat Churchill’s crew improved to 11-0 overall and 2-0 in the conference.

Visiting NRHEG walked away with a hard fought victory Saturday against a well coached, disciplined Hayfield team.

“Over the past few years, these games have been such grinds against these guys,” said Churchill. “They are so patient and take care of the basketball extremely well.”

For the most part, the nonconference schedule has not been kind to the NRHEG girls’ basketball team.

Within the Gopher Conference? That’s another story.

The Panthers ran their record to 4-0 in conference play last week, defeating Waterville-Elysian-Morristown 54-41 amid a 2-1 week. They’re 6-4 overall.

Leading 21-15 at halftime, the Panthers’ offense sputtered in the second half and they lost a nonconference game at Hayfield.

The NRHEG wrestling team lost twice in a home triangular Thursday, Jan. 5 at New Richland, 60-18 to Maple River and 68-8 to Kenyon-Wanamingo.

Winners for the Panthers in the Maple River meet were Andrew Reich at 106 pounds, Tyler Jacobson at 152 and Cole Staloch at 160, all by fall.

Brett Kubiatowicz, 126, and Carter Hagen, 220, posted victories against Kenyon-Wanamingo.
