[Our Cards hosted the St. Cloud Apollo Eagles. I had my first tuitioned edition of senior college that afternoon, so just decided to go on to the high school.  The JV was playing when I got there, so a chance to feature the up and coming.  Numbers 7 and 10 are 8th-graders, Erika Roderick and Mya Lesnar, respectively.  Ms. Lesnar is Brock’s daughter, for you Gopher and wrestling fans.  And then Tori Jeseritz (2), sophomore, swooped in for the kill.]
