Written by Hillsboro Free Press Friday, 19 September 2008 10:38Legal counsel representing Raymond Brandt has filed an appeal regarding the summary judgment issued last month against the lawsuit he filed against Unified School District 410.
The appeal was filed Sept. 16, according district officials.
The original suit challenged the co-ownership of a proposed new football and track facility between the district and Tabor College. District Court Judge Steven Hornbaker ruled Aug. 19 that “there were no factual issues to be decided and the case is ripe for...
Written by Don Ratzlaff Friday, 12 September 2008 17:03Hillsboro’s play against a tough Smoky Valley football team in Lindsborg Friday night was about as off-and-on as the rain showers all evening long. In the end, the Trojans absorbed a 44-22 soaking.
Hillsboro came out shaky, with quarterback Jacob Fish throwing an interception on the second play of the game. The Vikings scored two plays later on a 20-yard run by Devin Gfeller not even 1:30 into the contest.
Gfeller scored his second touchdown and ran in a 2-point conversion for Smoky Valley with 1:28 left in the quarter to push the Viking lead to 14-0.
Hillsboro started its next possession with a bad snap and 10-yard loss on the first play, then Fish fumbled away the football on the second play. Three plays Gfeller was in the end zone...
Written by Staff Wednesday, 10 September 2008 05:52Friday’s football game between Hillsboro High School and Smoky Valley will be played in Lindsborg after all.
It was discovered Wednesday morning (Sept. 10) that the crane that was on site at Reimer Field in Hillsboro was insufficient to erect the new light poles, and a bigger one will be needed.
As a result, Reimer Field will not be ready to host an evening football game by Friday.
Instead, the game, with kickoff set for 7 p.m., will be played on the Bethany College campus, which has provided the home field for Smoky Valley for many years.
Because of the switch, next year’s game between the Trojans and Vikings will be played at Hillsboro.
Written by AO Saturday, 06 September 2008 15:04The Hillsboro High School volleyball team trounced every opponent--though not all comers--at the sixth annual Mid Central Activities Association pre-season volleyball tournament in Marion Saturday, defeating Lyons (25-7, 25-21), Collegiate (25-22, 25-20), Ellinwood (25-19, 25-21) and Hesston (25-21, 25-20) without dropping a single game to reach the championship round. Haven won a game, but the Trojans won the match (25-14, 16-25, 25-23) on a thunderous spike by Dakota Kaufman.
Haven more than made a match of it after Hillsboro steamrolled the Wildcats in the first game of the championship series. With the second game knotted at 8-all, and then 12-all, and then 16-all, Haven rattled off nine consecutive points, robbing Hillsboro of its...
Written by Don Ratzlaff Friday, 05 September 2008 17:51A game that turned into a shootout between two young squads ended when when the Hillsboro Trojans stuffed Sacred Heart’s live-or-die bullet in the final seconds to escape with a dramatic 35-34 win Friday (Sept. 5) in Salina.
The Knights appeared to the Trojans dead in their sights when they cashed in on 10-play, 54-yard touchdown drive in the final 4 minutes of the game to pull within a point at 35-34 with 41 seconds left in the contest. But on the 2-point conversion attempt, the Trojans front line stepped up and stopped running back Colby Wetter a yard from the goal line to preserve the victory.
In the early going, it appeared the Knights would have their way with the Trojans, using a no-huddle offense to march up and down the field...
