BOYS BASKETBALL: Wishart sets three Delano records in first two games

By Matt Kane
Sports Editor

Following an unprecedented season on the football field, Delano senior Calvin Wishart is back on the basketball court this winter, and, in two games, has already set three team records.

First, in the Tigers’ season-opening 68-52 win over Waseca last Saturday, Dec. 2, at the Tiger Activity Center, Wishart shattered the Delano career points record with a 32-point effort.

Needing seven points to match Toby Hanson’s record of 1,526, Wishart scored Delano’s first eight points to quickly move himself on top. The 32 points gave him 1,551 points for his four-year varsity career.

“It’s a great accomplishment, and I could not have done it without the help of all my teammates from the last three or four years, as well as the coaches,” said Wishart. “They all put me in the spot to be able to get to that point; credit to them.”

Hanson applauds Wishart’s feat.

“It’s a tremendous accomplishment and I couldn’t be more happy for him,” said Hanson, who, like Wishart proved in one award-winning season of football this past fall, is good at any sport he tries. “He’s an incredible ball player with a great work ethic that sets him up for the success that he has had so far in his young career.”

One game: One record for Wishart.

Five days after taking over the top spot on the career scoring list, Wishart scored 47 points Tuesday in Delano’s 104-88 win at Princeton, breaking his own former single-game record of 43 points set last season against Hutchinson. Also at Princeton, Wishart’s 17 assists set a new record.

The 47 points upped Wishart’s career total to 1,598 points.

Wishart is now the career leading scoring for the Delano boys, but he is second on the points list for all Delano basketball players. Cecily Checkal is the school’s all-time scoring leader for both genders with 1,846 points.

Needing just 248 points and considering he more than doubled that total in each of the previous two seasons, Wishart is easily on track top Checkal’s mark.

“It will be cool to accomplish that as well, for sure, but it’s not a big goal or anything,” said Wishart, who constantly stresses the big picture. “Goals for me are just to stay healthy, win games, and make a state tournament run that we’ve been deserving for the past couple years now. We just have to take it one game at a time.”

Winstock 2018 – FULL LINEUP ANNOUNCED!

Winstock18Lineup__blogs

SPONSORED POST – This morning, the full Winstock Country Music Festival 25th anniversary celebration lineup was unveiled and features a combination of tried-and-true favorites and some of today’s hottest stars.

Joining Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, and Brothers Osborne June 8-9 in Winsted will be Billy Currington, Luke Combs, Neal McCoy, Sawyer Brown, LANCO, Walker Hayes, Trick Pony, Jordan Davis, Jake McVey, Maiden Dixie, Mitch Gordon and the Unleaded Band, and Jake Nelson.

“We wanted this to be a special lineup that represents Winstock and how we’ve grown over the years,” said Winstock Country Music Festival Chairman Dave Danielson. “For our 25th anniversary, we really wanted to blend some of our favorites along with the top artists of today.

Neal McCoy holds the record for most Winstock performances with five (1998, 01, 05, 09, and 13), and Sawyer Brown has taken the Winstock stage four times (2000, 04, 08, 13).

“To have Neal and Sawyer Brown be part of our 25th anniversary lineup is very special to us,” Danielson said. “They have been with us since the early years, and they’re two acts our fans absolutely love.”

Pairing them with hot newcomers Luke Combs and LANCO, who recently had the number-one hit “Greatest Love Story,” is sure to make it a weekend that all will enjoy.

“We built our foundation as a band on ‘Greatest Love Story’ because we believed in the power of Country music storytelling,” said LANCO lead singer Brandon Lancaster. “To see how much it has resonated with so many people makes us feel a little less crazy for believing in it so much.”

Combs also has hit big with “When It Rains It Pours,” and “Hurricane,” and that’s just the start. The North Carolina native has been featured on many “artists to watch” lists and is currently headlining his own “Don’t Tempt Me With a Good Time” tour into the spring.

Also in 2018, Winstock goers will see a new flair for what has been coined the Emerging Artist Stage over the years. Moving forward, the name of Winstock’s second stage will be more expansive to allow not just newcomers to take the stage. This year, Trick Pony will entertain fans from the new West Stage, along with Walker Hayes, Jordan Davis, and Jake McVey.

Playoff rivals Delano and Breck to meet on the ice Friday night

By Matt Kane
Sports Editor

Delano got past rival Breck in the Section 2A playoffs and into the Class A state tournament for the first time last season. The Tigers and Mustangs reunite in a regular-season meeting Friday night at the Delano Area Sports Arena.

Both teams are ranked in the early Let’s Play Hockey poll.

Delano enters off a 3-2 win over East Grand Forks Nov. 25 and the No. 7 ranking. Breck is 1-1 an ranked No. 6.

The Mustangs’ two games were played at the Marshall Thanksgiving Tournament. Breck lost to Fargo Davies (ND) 5-1 Nov. 24, and rebounded to defeat Pine City 6-0 Nov. 25.

You may not recognize many of the Delano players, as 12 players graduated from the state-tournament team.

In the Tigers’ win over East Grand Forks, the team Delano defeated 6-3 in the state consolation game last season, senior Jack Paulson and freshman Adam Brown combined on two goals, each scoring one and assisting on the other. Senior Matt Carson scored Delano’s other goal.

Senior goaltender Jackson Hjelle made 18 saves for the Tigers in the win.
