Coombe named to state Legion baseball board

Ely will have soon have a seat at the table when decisions are made about one of the state’s largest baseball programs.
Tom Coombe, who has coached American Legion baseball the last two decades, has been appointed to the state board of directors for American Legion baseball.
Coombe, editor of the Ely Echo and athletic director at Ely High School, was appointed Eighth District Director earlier this month.
He will join the state board at its meetings Mar. 23 in the Twin Cities.
Coombe will join a board that serves as the rule-making body for American Legion baseball in Minnesota, which has over 350 teams at the Senior and Junior levels.
The board also oversees state and district tournaments and decides which communities in the state will host major Legion baseball events - including state tournaments.

Skaters notch sixth victory

by Tom Coombe
It wasn’t as dramatic as the first encounter, but the Ely Timberwolves completed a regular season sweep of Bagley with a workmanlike performance at the Ely Arena.
Senior Gage Merhar scored twice, the Timberwolves built a decisive advantage in shots on goal and hung on in the final period for a 4-2 high school victory over the Flyers.
Section rival North Shore dominated the host Wolves 10-3 in a rare afternoon matinee Tuesday, but Ely has one last chance for a victory on the home ice.
That comes this Tuesday (Feb. 13), when the Wolves host Moose Lake in a pre-playoff tuneup. The Senior Night finale starts at 6 p.m.
Ely, now 6-12, has surprised some observers by reaching a half-dozen victories this winter and has a chance for another against Moose Lake, which has already fallen twice to the Wolves this season.

Military Night at the Ely Arena; Duluth Warriors returning to town for Saturday doubleheader

For the second consecutive season, the Minnesota Warriors will be part of a festive day of hockey in Ely.
This Saturday (Jan. 20) is shaping up to be a big one - dubbed Military Night at the Ely Arena, as a team made up of disabled combat veterans, comes to town to take on two Ely teams.
A team comprised of Ely alumni will tangle with the Warriors’ JV at 5 p.m. and the Warriors’ main team will tangle with Ely’s Heavy Metal All Stars at 7 p.m.
The doubleheader comes on the heels of a 2 p.m. game at the rink, featuring the Ely Timberwolves high school varsity team against Red Lake Falls.
The evening festivities will include a ceremonial puck drop, the presentation of the colors by the Ely Honor Guard, and the national anthem sung by Ely’s Bella Davis.
No admission fee will be charged for the evening games, although donations for the Duluth Warriors will be accepted.
