Poor weather conditions didn’t stop MSUM’s women’s basketball team from making Thanksgiving memorable. After a cancelled flight and forfieted game in Texas as a result, the team and its coaches filed into St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Moorhead. The church hosts annual Thanksgiving meals for community members in collaboration with Moorhead’s Trinity Lutheran. Head coach Karla Nelson knew of the annual lunch and led the team to it. Players shared a meal amidst laughter and community. “It’s unfortunate and fortunate, in a way,” Nelson said.
