Bethel University is trying to start a winter tradition: Broomball. So it called over 40 high school and 60 college students from the area for a tournament this weekend.
Looks like fun, judging from the slideshow it posted.
The Bethel students will have to work those chops for next year, though. They ended up getting whipped by some Coon Rapids high school students.
