PBL stays perfect

Athletes of the Week

A look at the N-G Athletes of the Week

Kroner: We can learn a lot from our history

The world is not like it was when my father was a teenager.

In most aspects that is a good thing. We now can watch sports on television, for example, while talking to a buddy on a cell phone and at the same time, heating a pizza in the microwave.

Riley leads Tribe to first victory

SHILOH – Tony Riley made four three-pointers and finished with 14 points, and Shelby Eisenhauer scored 12 to lead Judah Christian to a 46-33 win against Shiloh on Tuesday.

The victory was the first of the season for the Tribe.

Sages pick up where they left off

MONTICELLO – Having five new starters – three of whom return with significant varsity minutes – and only two seniors on the roster would be cause for concern for most teams.

Cox's quick getaway helps propel Panthers

PAXTON – Paxton- Buckley-Loda hopes its long-range shooting and defense will carry the team a long way this season.

The Panthers (5-0), behind guard Kendall Cox's game-high 29 points, defeated Hoopeston Area 78-46 on Tuesday night in nonconference action.

Good-shooting Knights prevail

ARTHUR – Since joining the Okaw Valley Conference in 2007, the Tuscola Warriors have dominated against their former Little Okaw Valley Conference mates.

Tuesday night, the LOVC sent the Warriors a little payback.
