f Thursday, Apri122,2010 Students .4 Youth Tri-County News Kimball, MN Kimball Girl Scouts attend Centuries in Progress Girl Scout troops 83 and 924 of Kimball attended Centuries in Progress Family Day at the Steams History Museum Sunday, April 11. Julie Bunkowski, a registered nurse from St. Cloud Hospital, talked to the girls about the history of incubators, incubators were fea- tured in the 1933 Chicago World's Fair "Centuries in Progress" using real premature babies. The girls held premature dolls showing them how small the babies are that use the incubators at the hospital. The girls asked questions and talked about their experiences with their family members using the incubators. The CentraCare Live Link Ili Helicopter was also a highlight of the day. They were able to look and sit inside the helicopter. The Girl Scouts were interested in how fast it could get to their town and how small it was inside. They learned how they can transport premature babies from one hospital to another.

(Brett Ost- by's Boys) took second place at the Pierz 3 on 3 tournament held Sun- day, April 11. The team consisted of Ty Filzen, Neil Helgeson, Tyler Lock and Dillon Menson. It took a few games during pool play to get Filzen and Lock acclimated to the game. They lost their first three games in pool play, but got offto an 18-0 lead over Pillager. The next few minutes consisted of running their offense around Loch who hit a big three, to the finish it off. In bracket play, the inside/out- side play of Menson and Helge- son and Loch (lock) down defense of Filzen and Loch carried them to wins over Pillager and an unde- feated Pierz team to put them in the championship against Menagha. The Menagha game was tied up at 21 before losing at the end. Some highlights of the tourna- ment included Menson stuffing the 6'10" post player from DeLasalle and Helgeson hitting the game- winning shot against Pierz when he was in the air deciding whether to pass or shoot. Also. Filzen got hot and hit some key shots as the tour- nament went into bracket play, and Loch defended and rebounded like he had played the game his whole life. Coach Ostby called some cru- cial time outs to get the team focused. Theboys hustled, played great, and had a lot of fun on their way to a second-place trophy. Another game note, both Filzen and Loch were seen signing some type of contract after the tournament. .........
