Washington County switches to 8-man football for the first time

BY DAN THALMANN

Washington County enters its first year as an 8-man football team. They will be competing in Division 1 for the next two years for sure. Some of the players have some 8-man football experience from junior high and coach Doug Thompson was an assistant coach on the 8-man level a few years ago, so this will not be a totally foreign move.

Participation in football jumped from last year when the Tigers only had 12 players playing 11-man football. The Tigers have 21 athletes on the team this year including four seniors who did not play last year as juniors. There are also seven freshmen. While the team will be young, several had quite a bit of experience last season because of low numbers. They have eight returning letter winners. They graduated three letter winners this spring.

Hanover knocks off top seeds on way to coach pitch title

Team falls in first championship game 16-7, but wins second and final championship game 9-2 to claim championship 

BY DAN THALMANN

It took Hanover Blue two games to claim the girls coach pitch softball championship on their home field on July 2 in Hanover.

Hanover faced off against Valley Heights Purple in the championship game. Hanover was the #4 seed coming into the tourney and was able to knock off #1 seed Clifton and #2 seed Valley Heights Purple above them to make it to the championship game. Valley Heights then made it through the consolation bracket to meet up with Hanover again in the championship game.

In the first game, Valley Heights got off to a 9-4 start after two innings, but then Hanover’s defense held them to no runs in a 1-2-3 out third inning culminating in the catcher Bailey Holle making that third out on a pop-up. Then Hanover put up two of their own to tighten the lead to 9-6.

Washington peewees claim third at state

BY DAN THALMANN

It took Washington an inning and a half to build the lead they needed to take third place over the Beloit Marauders at the Peewee baseball state tournament on Friday in Belleville. Washington was a #1 seed and got to the game by beating the Concordia Lions 4-1, but then falling to the Smith Center Chiefs 9-7 in the semifinals. Smith Center would go on to win the championship over Waconda, 4-3 in 8 innings.

Both teams stranded one runner on base in the first inning and in the top of the second, Washington pitcher Will Otott struck out the first batter and then gave up a hit. But his defense was strong behind him and tallied a double play against the next Beloit batter for a quick second and third out.
