Corbin Hansen, a 2016 graduate of Sandy Creek High School and a Deweese native, has earned All-American honors for his performance in the NCAA Division II national cross country championships, this past Saturday in Pittsburgh, PA.

Hansen, a junior for the Loper harriers, ran to a 31st place finish, as the lone University of Nebraska-Kearney runner that qualified for the national meet, Dec. 1.

Cards end 12-year skid vs. Hornets

ASHLEY D. SWANSON | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Senior guard Cory Marshall scorched the Giltner boys for 21 points Friday night, as the Harvard boys edged the Hornets 48-42 for their first win over Giltner since the 2006-07 season.

Harvard’s first basketball game of the season proved to be a nail biter and a monumental night, as the Cardinals soared to a 48-42 win over the Giltner Hornets Nov.29.

This game was the first time since the 2006-07 season that Harvard defeated Giltner on the court, making Thursday’s win that much sweeter.

“I really believe we played a solid game, being our first game and having not beaten Giltner since the 2006-07 season,” Head Coach Jermaine Guinyard said. “We have a ton to work on but overall the team executed effectively.”

From the start, each team wasn’t about to give up, constantly battling back and forth with points, ending the first quarter tied at 9-9.

In the second quarter, quick feet and some equally fast passing allowed the Cardinals to rack up 18 points over Giltner’s nine, ending the first half with a nine-point lead, 27-18.
