Spikers sizzle, zap Tigers 3-1

The Panther volleyball team got off to an auspicious start Tuesday night with a 3-0 win over the Marshall Tigers at Marshall.

"They were just so much better at the transition game from offense to defense than we were," said Marshall coach and former Panther mentor, Terry Culhane.

Sophomore Laura Zwach got the Panthers off to a great start in the first game when she served to a 6-0 lead. The Panthers went on to win that game by a score of 1-5.

Football team travels to Redwood Thursday, hosts Lennox Tuesday

The Panthers will open the season against Redwood Valley at Redwood Falls on Thursday.

"It is my understanding that BDRSH has become Renville County West and all the Belview athletes have gone to Redwood Valley," added Otto. "That could make Redwood Valley a much better football team."

The Panthers' home opener is Tuesday, Sept. 5, when the Panthers host a squad from Lennox, South Dakota. The unusual Tuesday night game was scheduled because no other games could be scheduled. The Panthers will not have a game Friday, Sept. 8.

Disputed double play ends Yankees season

The lights went out on the season for the Milroy Yankees as they dropped a heart-breaking state semi-final game to the powerful Litchfield blues, 11-10 in 10 innings, in Sleepy Eye last Saturday afternoon.

The Yankees ended their season with a record of 25 wins and 19 losses. The future is bright for Milroy as the four young men who logged the majority of the pitching innings are all under 21 years old. However, as is the case in amateur ball every year, the key will be to keep the team together. Having a nice blend of youth and veterans, the stage could be set for another state tourney appearance in 2001.
