Sports Sunday December 3rd: Mixed emotions as Mahnomen and Waubun begin co-op
WAUBUN -- On June 14th, the Mahnomen and Waubun school districts agreed that it would be in the best interests of both schools to co-op sports.
Some were excited about the oppurtunity to team-up with their rival while others were against the idea of losing their school's identity.
But on Friday night, the communities came together for the first time, not as Mahnomen or Waubun, but as the Thunderbirds.
For those involved it was an emotional night that will mark that start of something new.
The girls team grabbed the first Thunderbird win ever on Friday 74 to 58 over Cass-Lake Bena.
