By Jordyn Hulinsky

Sutton concluded the 2017 volleyball season at the C2-7 sub-districts in the play-in game against Hastings St. Cecilia. 

The Bluehawks earned the win in three sets, 25-17, 25-18 and 25-7, respectively. 

Three seniors played in their final game at the Grand Island Central Catholic gym against St. Cecilia: Alyssa Schurman, Melanie Schutte and Emily Van Lynden. 

In the final game, Schutte led in kills with nine of the team's 16, and she led the team with 105 this season. 

"Melanie Schutte was a constant presence in the front row for us," first-year Head Coach Shelli Mohnike said. "She finished the season leading the team in kills. She broke 100 in our last match. We asked a lot of her by playing multiple positions this season and in different capacities. She was able to adapt and still stay focused."

No. 2 seed Sandy Creek didnít just survive a game against No. 1 seed Centura Monday at the C2-7 sub-district title match on Tuesday evening; the Cougars thrived.

The teams met at Centura on Thursday, Oct. 26, where the Cougars lost in three: 25-13, 25-20 and 25-17, respectively. 

"This was one of the games I was nervous for," Head Coach Josey Nunnenkamp said. "It all came down to this night, and they showed up and they left it all out on the court."

Cardinals to return to Cody

Harvard holds off late Deshler rally for 52-46 win to reach six-man semi-final round for second straight year

BY TORY DUNCAN

A feeling of being a bit too amped up came across the mind of Harvard Head Football Coach Scott Trimble Friday night, as his Cardinal football team held off a talented Deshler Dragon football team in the opening round of the 2017 six-man state playoffs. Harvard stopped a late fourth-quarter Dragon rally to improve to 9-0 on the year, with a 52-46 win.

“Our kids knew going in what was at stake, they knew that if we get the win over Deshler we get a rematch with Cody-Kilgore because Cody had already beaten Walthill (50-6) earlier in the day. I think we were a bit too amped up,” Trimble said.
