The girls open section play at home on Wednesday against St. Peter.

After their week, the boys team just have one more game on the schedule against Litchfield.

The boys lost both of their games this week to both very good Waconia and Delano teams. Both are ranked within the top-10 in Class 3A.

They were blown out in the game against Waconia 93-60 on Tuesday and then lost a really tight one 68-65 to Delano on Thursday.

Russell Corrigan and Sam Rensch carried the team in both of the games, scoring in double figures. Both hit 20 in the game against Delano with Corrigan getting 25 and Rensch 20.

The Tigers will have one more game next Thursday against Litchfield to end the regular season.
