To save phone battery throughout the day, I will be posting the Wood City Classic results as each game finishes, as I have in the past, with the school’s internet blocking social media. Today’s first game is Duluth Denfeld boys vs. Pine City, followed by the Denfeld girls vs. Northwestern (Wisconsin).. then the Cloquet boys play Blake followed by the same girls’ game.
