Southern Valley dashes hopes of Cougar win in opener

BY TORY DUNCAN

A 12-point run in the second quarter and a 16-12 second-half run by the visiting Eagles of Southern Valley High School would leave the 2018 Sandy Creek Cougars on the short end of a 28-18 Class C-2 bout Friday, Aug. 24.

The Cougars, after shaking off some early nerves on their third drive of the first quarter, would give Cougar fans a big excitement, when junior defensive back Connor Crumbliss put some thrill in the stands with a 45-yard pick-six interception return to lift Sandy Creek to a 6-0 lead at the 5 minutes, 37 second mark of the opening stanza.

Working on a different mindset

By Ashley D. Swanson

Apparently all of the minds of those who write columns in our CCN are on the same mindset.

Tory wrote about the kidnapping issues that have occurred lately, and about how families should make plans to stay safe, if they already haven’t. Jordyn wrote about all the bad things that have happened just in the last month. And honestly, I was going to write about the same things.

Our country...our world, is falling apart, and to be frank, it all sucks.

It’s beyond time to keep a watchful eye

By Tory Duncan

Nebraska has well beyond 300 known missing persons registered on the Nebraska State Patrol’s website.

In the light of the sad death of Mollie Tibbetts in Iowa, and after some recent activity in the state over the past several weeks, it’s time to renew a strong effort to keep an eye out as a community, as neighborhoods and as citizens of each and every community in Clay County and statewide, heck for that matter, nationally.

#RestoreTheTradition

Sandy Creek coaching staff features some new faces that look to get back the Cougar football tradition

BY TORY DUNCAN

Jack Shadley and Cole Wiseman have a knack of knowing what each other is thinking. So when the opportunity came for the Doane University football standouts to teach and coach together after their college careers ended, they didn’t pass up the chance.

“We never once thought that we’d ever end up at the same school to start our teaching and coaching careers, but I guess, here we are,” Shadley said.

Lady Cards look to replace last year’s key player

BY JORDYN HULINSKY

The Harvard Cardinals will be attempting to continue the progress made last season, where the team posted the best record since 2010 with their 7-17 finish.

“I expect the girls to have fun and compete each game,” Head Coach Kevin Medrano said. “We are a young team, but we are growing a lot even already this season. We are going to work hard to get out of the slump we’ve been in the past few years and we hope to get better every game.”

Thanking the angels with invisible wings

By Ashley D. Swanson

here’s a decorative plaque on the deskat the Sutton Community Home that states “angels are often disguised as nurses,” and while I probably have some bias behind me due to my past and current involvement in the medical field, I fully believe that statement is true.

Being a nurse (certified nursing assistant, medaid, registered nurse, etc.) comes with a lot of things.

It comes with several hours of non-stop work. It comes with long nights, early mornings, and forever afternoons. It comes with sore muscles and aching joints. It comes with every emotion in the book.
