MFL MarMac looks good in Jamboree action
By Michael Newton
The MFL MarMac Bulldog Girls Basketball team looked good and executed well at the Nov. 19 Bulldog Jamboree, according to Coach Jason Halverson. The Bulldogs played a half of basketball against East Buchanan High School at the jamboree, winning 53-20. All nine varsity players played in the contest, with the tenth girl, Chaun’te Drahn, out until mid-December with an Achilles injury. This year’s team will be small, but quick, and they played a loose game against a less talented team.
In the first game of the jamboree, Elkader Central used the three point shot often, as they won 29-13 over Turkey Valley. The night cap was Postville versus Waukon, but no result was available.
The boys basketball team hosted a jamboree on Nov. 25 and the girls opened their season at Sumner on Nov. 26. Both games, as well as a season preview, will be in the Dec. 4 issue of the North Iowa Times.
