Cards end 12-year skid vs. Hornets

ASHLEY D. SWANSON | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Senior guard Cory Marshall scorched the Giltner boys for 21 points Friday night, as the Harvard boys edged the Hornets 48-42 for their first win over Giltner since the 2006-07 season.

Harvard’s first basketball game of the season proved to be a nail biter and a monumental night, as the Cardinals soared to a 48-42 win over the Giltner Hornets Nov.29.

This game was the first time since the 2006-07 season that Harvard defeated Giltner on the court, making Thursday’s win that much sweeter.

“I really believe we played a solid game, being our first game and having not beaten Giltner since the 2006-07 season,” Head Coach Jermaine Guinyard said. “We have a ton to work on but overall the team executed effectively.”

From the start, each team wasn’t about to give up, constantly battling back and forth with points, ending the first quarter tied at 9-9.

In the second quarter, quick feet and some equally fast passing allowed the Cardinals to rack up 18 points over Giltner’s nine, ending the first half with a nine-point lead, 27-18.

Hansen: A quiet leader...a quality person

BULL

Tory Duncan • ccntory@gmail.com

There are times in life when you come upon a person that just stands out, a person who is quiet in his or her way of leadership, but who is a quality person to the core.

This past Saturday, 2016 Sandy Creek graduate, Corbin Hansen, the son of Hooter and Chris Hansen of Deweese, reminded me of the quality “kid” that this young man has always been!

Not because he earned All-American honors in the NCAA Division II national cross country meet in Pittsburgh, PA. Nope, that honor came about with sheer grit, hard work and a deep desire within this young man.

Corbin, since I had the luxury of getting to know this young man, wasn’t always a quiet leader; his demeanor oozes leadership, because of his drive, his heart and his work ethic.

He’ll be the last “kid” that would ever bring focus to himself and his successes no matter what this young man does. That’s not his style!

SC Beef Boosters asking for donations to serve local beef in school lunches

Sandy Creek is hoping to be the latest school in Clay County to bring on the Beef in Schools program, joining Sutton Public Schools in this statewide Nebraska Cattlemen initiative.

If the SC Beef Boosters is able to garner enough support by Dec. 31, Sandy Creek’s students would have not just a new high school to greet them in the second semester, but also the regular opportunity to eat local beef in their school lunches.

“Our students will get to experience locally raised beef in their meals at least once, if not twice, a week during the school year,” Dawn Caldwell, Edgar producer helping to head up the SC Beef Boosters, said.

Edgar, Fairfield meet about water project; public hearing set for Dec. 4

After a joint discussion between the Edgar and Fairfield City Councils last week, their water project appears to be moving forward.

The two councils held a special meeting on Nov. 27 at the city auditorium in Fairfield to review a Water Purchase Agreement, which guides the logistics of Edgar buying Fairfield’s water via a pipeline running along the Union Pacific Railroad. Completion of the new water system would be done by Dec. 31, 2020.

A public hearing has been set for 7 p.m., Dec. 4 at the Edgar City Hall. This is the opportunity for Edgar residents to ask questions and give their input on the direction of the Edgar-Fairfield Water Project.

Both Edgar and Fairfield City Councils have agreed to continue with plans for the new water system, though with some revision to the Water Purchase Agreement. Much of the debate surrounded concerns about future nitrate levels in Fairfield’s water supply, as well as the cost to Edgar of digging a new well in Fairfield.

A rewarding one act season

RAMBLES

It’s difficult to imagine one act season being over. Usually, when the season ends, it’s simply me moving to the next season knowing that there are basketball games and wrestling meets to cover and then eventually speech begins.

This year, however, is different because I served as one of the Sutton One Act directors. What started out as having rehearsals each week, figuring out blocking, props, conferring about costumes, keeping track of 30 students, and knowing where competitions were suddenly stopped.

We no longer have that responsibility...at least for another year.

As first-year coaches, Ahlona Landauer and I experienced several challenges this one act season. No bad challenges, but we certainly learned some things.

Mustangs finish in top 5 of C-2 final state rankings

BY TORY DUNCAN

In a year that proved to be a special season for the Sutton coaching staff, players and fans alike, the Mustangs would only fall to the C-2 state champion Centennial Broncos and the C-2 state runner-up Norfolk Catholic Knights, while recording six shutout wins during the course of the season.

Sutton opened with three straight wins by a combined score of 128-7, with all three teams qualifying for the C-2 playoffs.

Sutton opened with a 50-7 win over North Platte St. Pats, then blanked both Wilber-Clatonia (38-0) and Freeman (36-0) before stubbing their toes at Centennial, suffering a 41-22 loss to the Broncos.
