Blue Jays top Skis to win fourth state championship

After overcoming two tall hurdles and then sprinting down “Redemption Road,” the Plato Blue Jays celebrated a state championship on Monday, Sept. 3, defeating the Sobieski Skis 8-5 in the Class C championship game at Memorial Park in New Prague.
“It is the goal at the start of every season – go win the state title,” manager Adam Dammann said. “We knew we had a good team and thought we had a strong chance.
“Now we’ve done it and it is awesome. I am so proud of these guys.”

Panthers win daytime football opener

“Friday Night Lights” suddenly became Friday afternoon sunlight as the Glencoe-Silver Lake football opener was played in the middle of the afternoon on Friday, Aug. 31.
The game was suddenly rescheduled from a standard 7 p.m. start to a 2 p.m. kickoff due to the threat of severe weather forecast for last Friday evening.
Despite the switcharoo, the Panthers still got the result they wanted. Despite some late-game hijinx, GSL moved to 1-0 on the season with a 27-20 defeat over its spirited visitors.
“We won, but we have to get back to work this week,” coach Scott Tschimperle said.
