    Jumping out of the gym: Young Oilers look to reach high ceiling in 2015 WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    The phrase ‘young team’ is thrown around a lot in sports. Usually because its a pretty way to gift wrap the fact that the team in question isn’t very good, or, at least, isn’t very good right now – “Building for the future!” as the narrative most often goes. Well, Mt. Pleasant volleyball has a ‘young team’ in 2015... but though the future of th...Read More

    Ithaca volleyball sets sights on first-ever conference title in 2015 WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    History is written by the victors. It’s an old axiom, but if framed in the context of present-day sports, then the Ithaca volleyball team hasn’t had to do much writing lately – or ever for that matter. The Yellowjackets have never won a conference title, they’ve never tasted even a district championship to pass off as postseason glory and, as thi...Read More

    Vestaburg's Christian Keeler, Alex Steed run wild in season-opening rout at Breckenridge WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    After visualizing his role as a starting running back on the Vestaburg High School varsity football team, junior Christian Keeler probably did not predict his first touchdown of the season to come on defense.

Alma went ahead 7-0 but its offense had gr...Read More

    Warriors get shut out in opener versus Haslett WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    When you throw three interceptions and fumble the ball away once it makes it tough to win.
