Alex’s Tale of the Tape #902, Date: Jan. 25, 2018
Minot High girls basketball coach Bernie Wasser chats about the unique experience of coaching two sets of sisters.
The bond shared between siblings Brooke Nelson and Allie Nelson, along with Brenna Tschetter and Becca Tschetter is a rare anomaly that often goes unnoticed, but was vital to the Majettes’ success.
“I just coach them, and sometimes I don’t even think about them being sisters, which is a good thing. Then you know that they blend in well with the entire team,” Wasser said. “I have had it happen before with boys when I was coaching in Montana, but it is really unique when you see two sets of sisters, and they are the same age. A senior and sophomore on each family.”

Minot State men’s and women’s track and field coach Mark Del Monaco wraps up Minot State’s weekly press conference.
Coming off a busy weekend, the Beavers were getting ready to compete in the NSIC outdoor championships in two weeks.
“For our non-travel crew, we had about three meets in 10 days,” Del Monaco said. “For those who went to California, it was anywhere from four to five meets in 10 days. I was really proud of our kids with how they got out and competed. Some highlights in every competition we went to. It sets up well that we can take a deep breath, get a little bit of rest before heading to the conference championship.”

The Bishop Ryan baseball team fends off upset-minded Surrey to capture the Region 6 championship. The Lions won 9-3 with pitcher Nicholas Sanders throwing a complete game.
Ryan scored in every inning except the second inning. Surrey, coming off a 9-7 win over top-seeded Velva/Drake-Anamoose in a loser-out contest held hours beforehand, couldn’t keep up with the Lions.
Jaxon Feller launched a ball into the outfield and turned on the jets for an inside the park home run in the fifth inning to put the Lions up 7-3.
“That got all of our adrenaline going,” Feller said. “Helped us finish the game with high energy.”
