Seeing their first varsity action of the season were Jack Wemhoff (above) and Gage Thiessen. Both contributed to the team's victory Saturday against the Bees.

BLOOMFIELD — It was close and then it was not.

Elgin Public-Pope John turned a close game into a rout Saturday, defeating Bloomfield 65 to 46 in this, their first game of 2023.

Then Wolfpack senior Jack Wemhoff, seeing his first action of the season, drained a trey which seemed to ignite the Wolfpack.
