The basketball season is under way for the local high school basketball teams.

The Vikings girls kicked off their season Nov. 30 with a home overtime win against Silver Bay, 44-39.
Both teams traveled to Two Harbors on Friday.  The boys won their season opener by a score of 63-60.  The girls were defeated, 62-29.  For the girls, Sophie Eliasen had 23 points, with Abbie Crawford and Paisley Smith adding three each. 

"We are a young team and it’s early in the season," said  Head Coach Kelly Hawsen. "We had a couple of early fouls resulting in early substitutions with a very young bench playing some solid minutes."
Coming up this week:
Thursday, Dec. 15 – Boys and girls at Babbit against Northeast Range, girls at 4:45 p.m. followed by the boys at 6:30. 

Friday, Dec. 16 – Boys at home against Thunder Bay at 4:30 p.m. (This is a change from previously scheduled)
