Beacons looking to recapture early-season magic

The first third of the season couldn’t have gone much better for the Concordia Academy boys basketball team. The Beacons lost just one of their eight games before Christmas and headed into a holiday tournament with plenty of momentum.
Concordia added a victory in the first round of that holiday event but wins have been difficult to come by since. The Beacons enter this week on a five-game losing streak but still have time to right the ship.

Instead of a rundown of the sports stories of 2013, I decided to go a little different route. With the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome set to meet its demise in the coming weeks, I compiled some lists of the events I was fortunate and not so fortunate to see in person.
