Written by David Vogel Tuesday, 22 July 2008 15:00Sara and Robert Rempel, and their four children, have made the move from Lyons to Hillsboro.
The administrative shuffle that took place at Hillsboro High School after the 2007-08 school year left a vacancy in the activities director position.
Dale Honeck, HHS principal for the past eight years, announced his June retirement and Max Heinrichs, activities director and assistant principal for seven years, was hired to take Honeck’s position.

Written by Andrew Ottoson Thursday, 05 June 2008 04:11The American Legion Post 366 summer baseball season began with back-to-back routs of Peabody and Hesston, leaving the Hillsboro squad 4-0 after its first week.
Coach Tim Hein’s team smashed Peabody 11-1 behind Isaac Leihy’s nine-strikeout complete game in the opener last Wednesday, then battered Peabody 15-0 in the second contest of the doubleheader behind a five-inning no-hitter by Tyler Ediger.
Post 366 continued its rampage Thursday with an unmitigated rout of Hesston: 24-0 and 17-1.

“All our pitchers have to do is throw strikes,” he said. “We have three shortstops in the field.”
Mainstays Daniel Jost and...

Written by Don Ratzlaff Thursday, 05 June 2008 04:02Amanda Bina stands in for her final at-bat in a Trojan uniform, during regional play against Herington last month—naturally, she ended with a base hit.
Through her four seasons at Hillsboro High School, Amanda Bina lit up the softball field almost as much with her smile as with her bat.
Which is to say, she had a lot to smile about.
Bina completed her career as the most productive hitter in the 11-year history of the program.
"God gave me everything I've got and I practiced a lot."- Amanda Bina
The four-year starter walked away as the HHS career leader in almost every offensive category, including hits (146), batting average (.520), slugging percentage...
