Fall events keep Ely rolling

The calendar has turned to late-September and October will be here within days.
A hectic summer in Ely has come to a close - one in which visitors yet again came to town by the thousands to enjoy what our area has to offer.
But it’s not over yet..
Summer is clearly not the only time to enjoy Ely and not the only time that the community serves as a venue for a major event.
Take this weekend and next as Exhibits A and B.
First is this weekend’s Ely Marathon followed up by one of the community’s most unique happenings - the Jake Forsman Memorial Car Show and Burnout Competition.
Both have carved their own niche and attract their own followings, but make no mistake - both are major happenings in our town.
In its brief history, the Ely Marathon has taken off.
What started as a concept has turned into a weekend of late-September fun.

Runners make further gains

by Tom Coombe
There’s little doubt that Ely’s cross country teams will be battle-tested by the time they match up against schools their own size.
Both had solid days Tuesday at Grand Rapids, where the Timberwolves competed and led all Class A foes at the Paul Bauer Invitational.
On another warm day for running, Ely trailed Class AA and AAA opposition but beat some of those teams as well.
The girls, fueled by another impressive outing by senior Zoe Devine, took sixth among 11 teams.
In boys competition, Ely was fifth in a 10-team field with Caid Chittum leading a pack of four Wolves runners who were all within four seconds of each other.
“It went good,” head coach Jayne Dusich said of the day. “It was a big meet and a lot of AA schools and it was hot and humid. They ran on a ski trail so it’s crowded and not very wide. We did good against bigger schools.”

Wolves frustrated, fall to 0-2

by Tom Coombe
In many ways, it was an instant replay for the Ely Timberwolves.
Right down to a disappointing finish and a second straight heartwrenching defeat.
Turnovers, foiled chances and untimely penalties all contributed to the Wolves’’ 14-6 loss to Bigfork in a Sept. 16 clash at Ely School Stadium.
Unbeaten Bigfork won its third straight game but had its hands full with the Wolves, who forced four turnovers and outgained the visitors during the first half.
Total yards were a near standoff for the contest, with Bigfork amassing 235 yards to Ely’s 220, and the Huskies taking the edge on a scoring drive that opened the second half.
Bigfork broke a six-all deadlock on its first drive of the third quarter, as Matt Vosika scampered in fro 17 yards out and the Huskies added a two-point conversion to make it 14-6.

School enrollment inches up

by Tom Coombe
Despite perhaps the smallest incoming kindergarten class in its history, overall enrollment in Ely’s public school system has rebounded after hitting a new low last year.
Student population that hovered around 500 at one point during the 2021-22 school year has bounced back to a K-12 total of 545 as of Monday, according to reports at the regular school board meeting.
That’s 33 more students than were enrolled in June, at the conclusion of the last school year.
It’s an even larger jump, one of more than eight percent, since totals reported last winter.
The totals show the district has recovered and seemingly regained many of the students it lost after a controversial indoor mask mandate was adopted just prior to the start of the 2021-22 school year.
Enrollment then had tumbled from 559 in September, 2020 to 531 last year.
