Rails, Greyhounds Girls Basketball Teams Meet Up for Summer League Game

No fans or parents were allowed to attend the games, but there was a live stream available on Facebook for those who wanted to watch.

PROCTOR, Minn. – It’s been about four months since we’ve seen some high school basketball action. Until Thursday, when the Proctor girls basketball team hosted Duluth East in a summer league game.

The league usually hosts ten local teams, which includes a championship tournament. But this year, it’s mostly pick up games with nothing on the line. Just coaches and players excited to be back in the gym.

“We were hoping to defend our title this year, but it’s not looking like we’re going to have to get to have our tournament this year. Right now, we’re just trying to pick up games wherever we can. It’s the nature of the summer right now. We’re trying to play as much as we can while we can,” Rails head coach Matt Solberg said.

“So happy to be playing basketball again with all our friends. With these games, it’s so nice to actually play and just have a little bit of normalcy after all this crazy stuff,” said senior Josie Maahs.

No fans or parents were allowed to attend the games, but there was a live stream available on Facebook for those who wanted to watch. And the players did their best to make the atmosphere more like a real game.

“I did make a poster. It says ‘Parent Section’ and I cut out all our parents’ faces and glued it on there. So that’s just hanging across from us. It’s not them but it’s pretty cool. My dad’s not here yelling at me, but I know what he’d be saying if he was,” Maahs said.

The Rails and Greyhounds played three games middle school, JV and varsity with Proctor pulling off the sweep.
