Corn was being contracted for at 25 cents a bushel, and The Gazette advised selling. It believed the shrink, interest and other expenses would wipe out price increases-if any.
That was the case Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 for the Tri County Lady Trojans volleyball team, as the squad won the C2-1 Sub District Volleyball Tournament with wins over Humboldt-Table Rock-Steinauer and Freeman.
Tri County opened play last Monday evening at Johnson-Brock High School earning a five-set victory against Humboldt-Table Rock-Steinauer.
The Lady Trojans won by scores of 21-25, 8-25, 25-18, 28-26, and 15-6.
"It was a wild ride for us in the opening round of Sub Districts. We were able to defeat a strong HTRS team and did it in "scary" fashion on Halloween," Lady Trojans coach Brett Scheiding said.
"The first set was insane, because it was a run for one team and then it would be a run for the other. Unfortunately they had the last run and it cost us the set," Scheiding replied.
Displaying an all-out attitude, the Diller-Odell Lady Griffins volleyball team went 1-1 in the D1-1 Sub District Volleyball Tournament held Oct. 31st at the Fairbury Jr.-Sr. High School gym.
Coming into the tourney as the fifth seed, Diller-Odell came away with a straight sets win in its first match against College View Academy.
The Lady Griffins won by scores of 25-21, 25-23, 25-9.
"As a team, the girls played really well and really got after it. We played with a "get it done mentality" which was nice to see," Lady Griffins coach Rita Becker remarked.
"We had it all in the match with College View. The girls had communication, attacked the ball well, passed the ball well, and defensively the girls played very well. We did everything right for us to come out with a win," Becker said.
Tri County scored early and often in the first half of last Wednesday's Class C-2 second round playoff game played on Trojan Field versus Elmwood-Murdock.
As a result, the Trojans put a thumping on the Knights to the tune of 44-12.
Despite cold rain, and wind, it didn't take long for Tri County to gain the upperhand.
In the first quarter, the Trojans put together an eight-play drive from their own two-yard line which was capped off by a 27-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Riesen to Austin Kruse in the corner of the end zone.
The PAT was no good leaving Tri County with a 6-0 lead.
Riesen tossed his second touchdown pass of the game in the second quarter on a 49-yard bomb to Garrett Fresse.
