BY JORDYN HULINSKY

The Harvard Cardinals earned their second win of the season in spectacular fashion Thursday evening in front of the home crowd against a Class C-2 opponent.

“With (Thursday’s) game being our home opener, I told the girls that this was our house,” Head Coach Kevin Medrano said. “We needed to play hard to protect our home court. The girls played the part. Our home crowd definitely added a lot of energy in to our game, cheering for us and supporting us point-by-point.”

Mustangs roll over Freeman 40-0

No. 3 Sutton blisters Falcons for 483 total yards Friday to improve to 3-0

BY TORY DUNCAN

Soggy field conditions, following a week of rain and cool temperatures may have slowed the Sutton Mustangs offense for the first quarter Friday night. Although, once the Mustangs gained traction, Sutton used a potent rushing attack and a stingy defensive effort to outscore the visiting Freeman Falcons 40-0 in the final three quarters of play. The Mustangs improve to 3-0 with the 40-point win at the final horn.

Despite the slow paced opening quarter for both teams, it would be the passing game that would help put the first points on the scoreboard for Sutton, as junior quarterback Jackson Perrien hit a wide-open senior James Griess on a 60-yard touchdown pass, at the 9 minute, 24 second mark of the second quarter, to lift Sutton to a 6-0 lead, following a missed twopoint conversion try.

Conversations leave lasting impact

By Ashley D. Swanson

U nexpected conversations are the best. And I’m not talking about those bad unexpected conversations— like coming home from school and your mom is standing with one hand on her hip and has that look on her face that says, “We need to have a talk.”

I’m talking about the unexpected conversations that come about and lead to many different topics or where you learn something or leave you with a happy feeling afterward.

Volunteering: it’s not a job, it’s giving back

By Tory Duncan

Sunday’s adventure at Old Trusty always gets me into what is usually a really good conversation with somebody. This year was no different.

The topic this year? Volunteering to support your communities!

We’ve seen a few Letters to the Editor as of late related to the Sutton American Legion, and over the years I’ve often felt that being a volunteer, while it definitely adds to your “to do list,” it’s also a rewarding experience, at least most of the time.

Hassler honored with Quilt of Valor at state fair

Butch Hassler, of rural Sutton, is no stranger to the military or 4-H way of life, and due to his involvement in both, was honored with a Quilt of Valor at the Nebraska State Fair Monday, Sept. 3.

His father joined the Navy first, then careered out in the Air Force, resulting in both Hassler and his brother, David, growing up as “military brats,” moving frequently.

Hassler served in the Air Force in 1977, serving his enlistment stateside, mostly at Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, UT, as a crew chief on the Air Force F4 fighter jets.

Along with his brother being enlisted in the Navy, Hassler also has a niece serving in the Coast Guard.
