Boys hockey team advances

The Trojan boys hockey team advanced to the Section 6A semifinals with a 6-3 win over Shakopee Saturday afternoon at the New Prague Area Community Center. New Prague trailed 2-1 early, but came back to tie it by the end of the first period, regained the lead early in the second and then pulled away in the third for the win. The Trojans will face Faribault at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Richfield Ice Arena.

Grabosky will wrestle at state

New Prague junior Eric Grabosky took second place at 160 pounds and is the lone Trojan to qualify for the state wrestling tournament, which starts Wednesday at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Grabosky lost early in the tournament to eventual champion Travis Rutt, but came back in the wrestlebacks and won the true second match against D. Thomas from Mankato East. Rutt and Caleb Lines, both of whom wrestled for New Prague at state last year, won their weight classes and will represent Jackson County Central at this year's state tournament.
