Redskins Suffer Bitter Defeat By Jim Geary The Huntley Redskins gave away a game Friday nighL 7-6. The North Boone Vikings recovered four first-half Redskins fumbles, inside Huntley territory. The first fumble was recovered on the 15-yard line. The Vikings drove the ball to the 2-yard line where quarterback Tim Pann ran it in at the 4:58 marie of the first quarter. The extra point kick was good and North Boone led 7-0. The Vikings recovered the other three fumbles on the 15-, 30-, and 41-yard lines. With this type of field position, you would expect that the Redskins had been blown away by half time. NOT! The Huntley defense would not give in. They not only denied North Boone points, but they pushed them backwards. In the second half, the defense continued to deny the Vikings. In the fourth quarter. North Boone fumbled and Eric Olsen was there to grab it for the Redskins. Huntley drove the ball 36-yards and Ty Thompson took it in for the score. The Redskins lined up for the extra point try. They gambled that they could get the 2-points but North Boone continued on page 9 Freshmen Ladyskins Take First By Huntley Booster Club Huntley's Freshman girls volleyball team made a clean sweep in the 7th annual Johnsburg High School Freshman Volleyball ToumamenL Monday, OcL 2, the fteshman team, coached by Allison Breidenbach, captured first place.

Enrollment in the school district is growing rapidly and the rate of growth is increasing. Action is required immediately. More than a year is required to complete a major building project. After studying alternatives, the Board of Education has developed a revised plan. The new plan is to upgrade and remodel existing facilities to serve elementary students. A new school will be constructed for the junior and senior high school students only. However, the board does not have sufficient funds to finance the project costs and it is necessary that the board be authorized to issue bonds to cover the costs.
