Cougars split games in season-opening triangular

BY JORDYN HULINSKY

The Lady Cougars of Sandy Creek went 1-1 in the first triangular of the season, hosted at Sandy Creek with Wilber- Clatonia and Heartland.

Sandy Creek defeated Wilber-Clatonia in two sets, 25-16 and 25-15, but then fell to Heartland in two, 25-14 and 28-26.

“That first game the girls stated they were ‘nervous,’” Head Coach Josey VonSpreckelsen said. “It was our first game of the season and we had to get all of our jitters out. The difference between the first game and the second game was intensity. We played somewhat slower in our first game and became more confident and sped up our offense in the second game. The teams we played did very different things so we made adjustments throughout each set and got better each point.”

3 states attend Annual Regional Youth Crop Scouting Competition

FUTURE AGRONOMISTS AT WORK

Three states competed at the third Annual Regional Youth Crop Scouting Competition on Aug. 27, at the Eastern Nebraska Research and Extension Center near Mead.

Teams of youth participated by completing six crop scouting exercises in field plots. This educational, hands-on program provided students an opportunity to learn crop scouting and principles of integrated pest management (IPM) for corn and soybeans, obtain knowledge and skills that will be helpful in future careers, and to demonstrate newer crop scouting technologies.

The top two teams from Nebraska, Iowa and Indiana qualified for the competition.

A Husker washout; high school frenzy

By Tory Duncan

Nebraska was in a total frenzy for nearly 300 days, since the hiring of one Scott Frost. Saturday night was to be the night to see the life in which Frost and his staff had breathed into the Cornhusker football program, but a higher power, even that of Frost, decided that maybe Akron wasn’t the right season opener!

Of course, I was just as hyped up as most Husker fans were to get the ball rolling, but you know, after getting through the disappointment of the game being “postponed” (most likely canceled), I’m OK with that.

I’d much rather open the year with Colorado, who up until both Nebraska and Colorado left the Big 12 conference, was a feverish rivalry (according to Colorado anyway...we all knew who Nebraska’s big rival was), sometimes even mean and fierce, if you will.

Making memories

By Ashley D. Swanson 

W hat do you get when you combine Scooby- Doo shows, cupcakes, living room camp outs, and coffee?

Answer: A dang good weekend.

Saturday my sister Zoey came up for a weekend visit.

This day proved to be more chill than Sunday, as we arrived back in town by 3:30 p.m., and we were all decently tired.

Before Loetta had to go to work, we enjoyed ice cream cones...which Zoey proceeded to get all over her face and clothes. Back at home, she decided to spread as many toys as she could across the living room floor, and then use me as a jungle gym.

Edgar EMTs train in SIM vehicle

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

Taking the shape of a semi, the Simulation in Motion-Nebraska is much more than it appears from the outside.

Equipped with an emergency- room set up in the front and an ambulance-like area in the back, the SIM acts as a training tool for new and veteran EMTs.

Thursday, Aug. 22, some Edgar EMTs used the SIM to increase their knowledge and how to best treat a patient under intense situations.
