Wrapping up the Husky Hoopster Classic in St. Cloud on Saturday, St. Scholastica trailed Mayville State by as many as 23 points in the first half before mounting a comeback. But the Saints couldn't get all the way back in an eventual 69-60 loss. The Comets (2-3) built a 32-9 cushion with a little less than six minutes remaining in the opening half. From there, St. Scholastica (0-2) outscored Mayville State 51-37, but the damage had been done.
The Oct. 22 letter, "Schultz complaining, not fixing, health care," touted health care "reforms" Rep. Greg Davids and other Republicans championed at the Legislature.

With a 25 percent premium discount disappearing for many Minnesota families next year, there is real danger out-of-pocket costs will rise substantially as a result.
For the first time since 2013, the Minnesota Duluth women started their season with a victory, defeating Wisconsin-Parkside 73-49 in a nonconference game Saturday afternoon in Kenosha, Wis.

Ann Simonet and Sammy Kozlowski topped four UMD players in double figures with 14 points apiece. Sarah Grow added 12 and a game-high 13 rebounds.
Minnesota Duluth's Meg Borowski ended her college cross country career by finishing 23rd at the NCAA Division II meet in Evansville, Ind., which earned the senior All-America status.

Trost, also a senior, has battled an injury most of the fall. UMD, making its fifth consecutive appearance at the national meet, was 15th of 32 teams.
