In this most unusual fall athletic season, the Blake Bears were able to have successful, and complete, seasons in all of the sports. The pandemic led to the Minnesota State High School League shortening the seasons and reducing the number of competitions. However, the Bears were determined to overcome all adversity and put their best paws forward. Go Bears!
