KMS wrestling and softball highlight list of Top Spories of 2015

Zach Carlson (right) was one of four KMS wrestlers earning a berth at the State Wrestling Tournament in 2015.
KMS senior MiKaylie Hagen has been a steady fixture for the Benson-KMS-Montevideo gymnastics team for many years, earning All-WCC honors the past two seasons.

It was another great season of sports for Benson, KMS, Benson-Hancock, Benson-KMS, and Morris-Benson Area in 2015, including several individual state berths, conference team titles, rare individual achievements, and records.

There were no state team berths in 2015 as that remains one of the toughest things to do in high school sports, but there were four KMS wrestlers, one Benson cross-country runner, and one Benson-KMS 800 meter runner who did qualify to state.  They are among the top five stories of 2015.....

A very warm November and warm start to December meant that lakes and rivers were late in freezing over. The Chippewa River was still open in places Monday morning.

In looking back at the weather highlights of 2015, there was one statistic that jumped out – Swift County saw more tornadoes than any other county in the state.

Other highlights included one of the best growing seasons for farmers in years, the smoky haze of Canadian wild fires, the latest 90-degree reading on record, the fourth warmest November on record and an extraordinarily long golf season that extended from March 15 to Nov. 24....
