A. Solvie nails eleven kills in sweep over Benson

Volleyball: Tigers 3, Benson 0
It was back to sweep city for MACA volleyball Thursday (10/1), as the Tigers handled Benson quite routinely. Scores were 25-11, 25-12 and 25-14. It was the 12th triumph of the season for Morris Area Chokio Alberta.
Ashley Solvie came at the Braves with eleven kills. Lindsey Dierks, Jenna Howden and Brooke Gillespie each pounded seven kills. Karly Fehr added four kills to the mix, followed by Carly Maanum with three and Haley Erdahl with two. Solvie and Howden each contributed two ace blocks. Fehr went up to execute one ace block.
Riley Decker impressed with her dig total of 19. Gillespie came through with eleven digs followed by Dierks with eight and Fehr with six. And in setting, Fehr raced around the court to contribute 35 assists. Gillespie showed precision at the serving line and produced three serve aces. These Tigers each had one serving ace: Fehr, Dierks, Erdahl, Decker and Koral Tolifson.
Benson's Addie Forbord had two serve aces. She was also the busiest setter for the Braves with 12 set assists. Megan Amundson had eight kills for the host Braves. Sophie Ascheman, Danielle Himley and Amanda Nissen each had one ace block. Amundson dug the ball up eleven times.
Melrose 3, Tigers 1
The Tuesday story wasn't so upbeat for the Tigers, who were dealt a 3-1 loss by Melrose at home. The Tigers and Dutchmen split the first two games, Melrose taking the first 25-18 and MACA rebounding to take the second, 25-15. After that the Dutchmen had the upper hand with scores of 25-21 and 25-18.
This was the second meeting this season of MACA and Melrose. MACA's season opener had the Tigers beating the Dutchmen.
Karly Fehr executed 28 assists in the Tuesday setback. Brooke Gillespie topped the kill list with eight. These Tigers each pounded down seven kills: Lindsey Dierks, Jenna Howden and Carly Maanum. Ashley Solvie had four kills followed by Fehr, Haley Erdahl and Moira McNally each with two. Moira McNally had two ace blocks followed by Gillespie, Fehr, Solvie and Howden.
Riley Decker was busy in digs, posting the team-best total of 24. Gillespie dug up the ball ten times. Erdahl had nine followed by Fehr with seven and Dierks and Tolifson each with six.
Football: BOLD 22, Tigers 12
BOLD was bold in making a comeback vs. our MACA football Tigers Friday at Big Cat.
Fans at Big Cat cheered as the orange and black went up 12-0. Eric Staebler caught a one-yard pass from Trent Marty for the game's first score. Sean Amundson hauled in a 31-yard aerial from Marty for the second score. The conversion tries misfired on these TDs. MACA had an encouraging 12-0 lead. After that, BOLD owned this game.
BOLD scored 22 unanswered points and won 22-12. Halftime arrived with the score 15-12. Brad Wolf found the end zone on a run from the eleven. Zach Blom kicked the point-after. Ethan Weis caught a 24-yard touchdown pass from Breckan Ebnet. The conversion was good on a run by Austin Einerson. BOLD polished off this win with a 69-yard run by Brad Wolff, and Blom kicked the conversion.
Trent Marty had his usual good passing stats despite the game's outcome: he was seven-for-eleven for 100 yards and had one interception. Jacob Zosel carried the football 17 times for 63 yards. Ryan Dietz had seven carries for eleven yards, and Marty added five yards to the mix. Sean Amundson and Eric Staebler each had two receptions, Sean's covering 72 yards and Staebler's covering six. Taylor Staples, Zosel and Chase Metzger each had one catch. Staebler did the Tigers' punting.
On the defensive side of the ball, Metzger had six solo tackles and eight assisted tackles. Continuing with the tackle chart: Staebler (five solos, three assists), Cole Watzke (4-5), Staples (2-7) and Brady Jergenson (3-3).
Wolff was a terror in the eyes of MACA fans, as this Warrior gained 211 yards on the ground in 24 carries. Connor Riley covered 44 yards on the ground for the visitor. Austin Einerson gained 43 yards and Max Buchtel had 39. Ebnet completed two passes in four attempts for 15 yards and had none picked off. Weis and Einerson each made an interception. Jon Schultz had seven solo tackles and two assists. Riley Weis had a quarterback sack.
The Tigers will next travel to Montevideo.
Keep up with this trend, please
It appears there are fewer businesses willing to part with their money, to have their name in a tiny box on the edge of an MACA sports schedule page in the Morris newspaper. The paper should simply publish the schedules (three times a year) as part of its news reporting obligation. I thought that's what newspapers were for.
The paper should also publish obituaries as news and not try to wring money out of grieving families. But if the paper can get away with it. . .
The fall sports schedule page appeared to have fewer names of businesses than before. An ad like this is called a "sig ad," as a business basically just places its signature on it - the business does not inform about its products and services, which is the purpose of advertising. So, by supporting the sports schedule page, you're really just subsidizing the Fargo-owned Morris newspaper. Please try to employ more brain cells in the future.
Oh, and "sig ads" are referred to in another way by some in the newspaper industry: "sucker ads."
Here's another media observation I've made recently: I noticed that in the Chokio Review, the football game review article had a byline with the name of an assistant coach. Whenever I see this sort of thing, I think "bush league." Isn't there anyone associated with that business who could generate some paragraphs? These activities are fun and important. Let's make them exciting and interesting with the media.
Stevens County appears to have one less print media product now: There's no sign of the controversial "Northstar" on the UMM campus. I strolled through the campus a few days ago and saw no "Northstar" newsstands. It's astonishing that this "shock" publication was allowed to last as long as it did. As I ponder whether to make my annual $ contribution to UMM, I'm weighing how much to consider my anger over the needless distraction that Northstar represented.
Maybe we'll see no "affirmative action bake sales" either.
Northstar was not even a legitimate journalistic product. It was a very oddball attack vehicle mounted by an oddball faction of students. Amazingly, it got inserted with the Morris Sun Tribune paper not once but twice.
The longer the Northstar existed on campus, the greater likelihood that UMM staff members would quietly acquiesce to it. One staffer confronted me over my criticism of it. I imagine this person had adjusted to Northstar as part of UMM's information ecosystem, contradicting logic, i.e. simply because it was permitted. If it was permitted, the staff would begin to shrug and offer no objection, because after all, these staffers had wonderful jobs with wonderful pay and benefits, thanks to the existence of the University of Minnesota-Morris. This is "learned behavior" according to psychology lingo. Well, I'm not the type to be influenced by such a factor - I analyze things objectively.
The First Amendment was never an issue regarding Northstar. UMM has the right to manage the information ecosystem on its campus, as we have finally realized after two years.
