We task our reporters with identifying several intriguing games throughout the state to assemble our Top Games of the Week. The matchups are presented in no particular order, and when there are additional games we want to highlight, we’ll include them with brief notes.
New Ulm vs. Luverne, 7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 26. State scoring leader Kamryn Van Batavia, a sophomore with 43 points, leads Luverne (8-2-0) in its showdown with fellow Big South Conference leader New Ulm (8-1-0) and standout goaltender Ava Brennan, an eighth-grader.
