A 4th place finish in tournament is nothing to hang our heads about; however, the girls expect more and were disappointed with the losses on the day.

"It was an exciting night of volleyball for the junior Trojans. The A-team came out a flat vs. Palco, but then regained momentum to win the 2nd and 3rd sets. The B-team played very well against Palco and they served strong. Although the B-team lost in 3 sets, the B-team played well and showed much improvement.
Our girls played very timid in the A-team match vs. Grinnell. We let a couple of servers string points on us, and we did not respond with strong play or serves. However, the B-team played with much confidence and won their match vs. Grinnell. This win was a great way to end the season for the B-team girls. They were rewarded for their effort all season," said head coach Cher Greving. (Photos by Melissa Graham)
The Logan Junior High football team traveled to Palco to play Wheatland-Grinnell. They were able to defeat the Thunderhawks 48-6.
"We didn't play as well as we could have in the first half. We had a big play in the last minute that shifted the momentum. Most of it was self imposed. We had a lot of uncharacteristic penalties. Then, in the second half we got it going on the ground on offense. The whole offense made some key plays on that side of the ball. Defensively, we made some adjustments on the D-line and that led to some key stops. It was probably the best half of football we played all year, I was proud of the guys for fighting through the adversity of the first half and coming out strong in the second half to secure the victory," said head coach Logan Waters.
