Area prep winter sports season begins this week
After two weeks of lull and colder temperatures settling in, the prep winter sports season begins this week.
The first contest takes place Monday as Elmwood's girls basketball team travels to Pepin to take on Alma-Pepin in a rematch of last year's regional semifinal match-up.
Tuesday is when the action really gets going as several teams have their season openers.
Ellsworth's girls basketball team hosts Barron while Prescott is at Hastings.
