November 5, 2021:

The 2021 regular season is over and the playoffs have begun. Our crews were glad to be back on the field for a full season, and there were only minimal Covid-related disruptions this year. Well done by all. This year we have a fantastic eight crews selected to work the state tournament. This is the highest number that we have had selected in very many years. We as a group have put time and effort into strengthening our crews, and while we always have room to improve, this is a great showing by Gopher.
