Timely hitting missing as MACCRAY wins
The Milroy Legion baseball team saw their season record slip to 8-8 with a 9-2 loss to MACCRAY Tuesday night at Raymond.
The Milroy team was out-hit only 9-6 but had trouble scoring runs.

Josh Skoblik started on the mound for Milroy and faced 18 hitters, giving up 5 runs (3 earned) on 5 hits while striking out 3 and walking 2. He was relieved by Nick Hanson who faced 7 hitters and gave up 4 (2 earned) runs on only 2 hits while striking out none and walking 2. Matt Daniels finished the game by facing 8 hitters and giving up no runs and no hits. He registered no strikeouts and walked 1 hitter.
Athletic heart screening offered at Tracy Hospital
Tracy Area Medical Services (TAMS) is teaming up with cardiologists from Sioux Valley Hospital and Cardiovascular Services to offer an Athletic Heart Screening to youth in junior high, high school and college.
The screening is scheduled for Monday, August 13 at the Tracy Hospital.
The screening will consists of two tests: an echocardiogram which uses ultrasound to visualize the internal structures of the heart and movement of its valves and walls; and an electrocardiogram which checks the electrical activity of the heart that produces heart beat and pulse.
This screening is designed to identify silent cardiac conditions. These conditions are usually impossible to discover without these specialized tests. In some cases, the conditions can be life threatening. Upon completion of these tests, Sioux Valley cardiologists have offered to donate their time to interpret tests results. Test results will be sent to both the athletes and their family physician.
