The winter sports schedules have been finalized for Bemidji High School, and the first games are starting up on Jan. 14.
The Lumberjacks have nine teams competing this winter: boys and girls basketball; boys and girls hockey; wrestling; boys and girls Nordic skiing; boy swimming and diving; and gymnastics. Like in the fall, many teams will play a schedule consisting of mostly Central Lakes Conference opponents.
The season has been delayed due to a state “pause” on youth sports due to the coronavirus pandemic, but teams will finally be able to open competition next week. Practices began Jan. 4.
All postseason competition is still to be determined by the Minnesota State High School League.
