Sports Update

Basketball is wrapping up at Salem. The boy’s A-team finished their season with the New Ulm Tournament at Martin Luther College. The boys made it to the Consolation Championship game but came up short. They had an amazing season topped with a Consolation win in the League Tournament. A huge thank you to Mr. Neal Anderson and Mr. Luke Dorn for coaching this season. 

The girl’s A-team has their last tournament left, as of writing this update. They won the Mankato tournament and placed third in the league tournament. The girls have one last tournament in the Catholic league that we have been a part of for this school year. We will let you know if we can bring home first place in that tournament. A big thank you to Mr. Ryan Klatt and Mr. Jacob Buller for coaching this season. 

The C-Team continues to play well. Their season has wrapped up and lots of learning and growing happened in the gym this year.

One way we forget we can help our school and church is to pray for them throughout the year. Your prayers are always a blessing and it is great to know that you are asking God for his blessings in our school and church year.
