Beer, coke, coal and potatoes

Even though we started the day using socks for gloves because of the mountain cold, we arrived in Connellsville about 5 p.m. hot and tired. Before finding our lodgings, we stopped at the Mile Marker Lounge for a beer.

Food For Thought

Until I graduated from high school, I was quite unaware of college sports, professional teams, and such things as college bowl games. About the only sport I was aware of, besides my own hometown football and basketball teams, was the World Series, and that was only because the teachers, as well as many of the students, in my high school insisted on having a radio playing in the study hall and broadcasting those games that were being played on school days.

It was a back-and-forth shootout until the very end.

CCA battles Demons and Saints

TIFFIN– It only took Clear Creek Amana (CCA) three sets to drive out the Demons, and advance to the semifinal round of Class 3A regional play. The Clippers met the Washington Demons Monday night at home in a quarterfinal match and won 3-0.
In the first set, Washington took a 2-0 lead before CCA caught up. The lead bounced back and forth much like the ball until the Clippers put the game away, 25-21.
“We made a few hitting errors, but nothing to panic about,” said coach Brian Bronzynski. “We didn’t set the tone we wanted.”
