1991 Fillies to be Honored in Lincoln Sunday

Someone once told Sutton girls basketball head coach John Schoneberg: “Moments like winning a state championship will come at the least expected time,” he told reporter Daryl Blue of the Omaha World-Herald. “I never thought we’d be 26-0, especially with the two players who graduated from last year. I think this year showed what team work will do.”Schoneberg’s comments made back on March 2, 1991, came just moments after his Sutton Fillies held off a late rally from Crofton to earn the school’s first and only girls state basketball championship, with a 40-38 win over the Warriors.

Galaway, Svoboda Lead Cougar Rushing Game as SC Improves to 2-2

A tough go to start the 2015 season has seen a big change for the Sandy Creek football team. Following a 36-28 loss to Centura in the season opener and a 34-6 setback at the hands of Humboldt-Table Rock-Steinauer, the Cougars have come back to even their record at 2-2 with back-to-back dominate wins over Thayer Central (42-6) and this week, Fillmore Central 34-6. The big wins sets up a big Clay County challenge for the Cougars as they head to the northeast part of the county this Friday to try and spoil Sutton’s homecoming efforts. The Mustangs enter the game at 4-0 and outscore their opponents by nearly 34 points. Game time in Sutton is set for 7 p.m. Friday night’s throttling of Fillmore Central would see the Cougars use a patient flow. They held leads of 6-0 after the first quarter and 20-0 at halftime behind a 14-0 second quarter run.
