St. Cecilia ends Sandy Creek volleyball season in C2-9 subs

The always challenging Hastings St. Cecilia Hawkettes proved to be too much to handle during the opening round of the C2-9 Sub-District tournament held Monday, Oct. 31, at Adams Central. The Hawkettes recorded a 25-15, 28-26, 25-19 season ending loss to the Sandy Creek volleyball team. Sandy Creek totaled 35 kills in the match, but it proved to not be enough in the end, as Sandy Creek ended the 2016 with an 18-12 record.

Cardinals bound for Cody

It’s been a long time coming for the Harvard Cardinal football program to earn a playoff win, but on Friday, Oct. 28, nearly 13 years after their last playoff win, a 56-20 win over Diller-Odell in Class D-1 in 2003, the Cardinals provided their fans with a big showing, downing the Blue Knights of South Platte High School in Big Springs with a 52-40 win in the opening round of the 2016 Six-Man Coaches Association state playoffs. The win advances the Cardinals to the semifinal round against the Cowboys of Cody-Kilgore High School, in Cody.

An exciting night, high spirits at Harvard

By Ashley Swanson

One of my favorite part about Harvard is their spirit. No matter what activity is going on, no matter what the score of a game is, the spirit level is at maximum. Harvard’s football season, thus far, has been exciting, for the athletes, coaches, crowd and certainly those from the CCN who cover them, and at every game, that well known spirit is never lacking.

Harvard football...The road to Cody

By Tory Duncan

Cody, NE, according to the 2010 census, has a population of 154. It’s nestled in the northern sandhills of Nebraska, some 45-50 miles west of Valentine in Cherry County, just a hop, skip and jump south of the Nebraska-South Dakota border. Cody is the next stop on the magical ride that is Harvard football this season. This past Friday night’s playoff win over South Platte marked the first time since Oct. 30, 2003, that the Cardinals’ program has won a playoff game. On that date in 2003, Harvard rolled past Diller-Odell 56-20, before bowing out of the Class D-1 eight-man playoffs to Falls City Sacred Heart on Nov. 5, 2003.

Edgar Council Taking Steps to Improve Town

With 67 percent of Edgar’s houses being built prior to 1960 and another 55 percent built before 1939, after almost 80 years, many of the houses have begun to falter, deteriorate and crumble. Following a Blight and Substandard Study conducted by South Central Economic Development District of Holdrege, it was found that in the north section of Edgar, “a total of 24 severely deteriorated/dilapidated and/or inhabitable” structures were found, 12 of which were vacant or appeared uninhabitable. In the south section, seven deteriorated/dilapidated and/or inhabitable structures were found.
