WORTHINGTON --Scrappy all-around play by the Worthington High School volleyball team Thursday night -- highlighted by the awesome spiking and blocking of sophomore sensation Martha Alwal -- lifted the Trojans to a three-game sweep over visiting New Ulm. Game scores were 25-21, 25-21 and 25-17. The match victory was the third straight for the Trojans (3-0), who are a perfect 9-0 game-wise for the season.

WORTHINGTON -- When I think of summer, I think about June, July, and August. These months are when the most traveling and vacationing take place. With August coming to a close in a hurry, the very best time is upon us, and that season is fall. Fall is when you can do work outside without having to cart around a five-gallon water jug just to make it through the day.
EDGERTON -- After Westbrook-Walnut Grove scored its third straight touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to take an 18-12 lead Thursday night, the Edgerton Flying Dutchmen scored twice in the game's final six minutes to capture a 26-18 victory over the Chargers in the season-opening, Southern Confederacy Conference high school football game. Edgerton (1-0), which racked up 357 yards of total offense, scored a pair of first-quarter touchdowns to take command early.
MOUNTAIN LAKE -- In dominating fashion Wednesday afternoon, the Adrian Dragons served notice to the area that they are once again the "cream of the crop" in high school cross country. Utilizing its exceptional balance and depth, along with top-notch lead-runner performances, the Dragons impressively claimed both team titles of the 16-team season-opening Wolverine Invitational.
WORTHINGTON -- A total of 30 athletes, grades 7-12, have been practicing for more than two weeks as members of the 2008 Worthington High School cross country program. Those practice efforts will be tested for the first time -- in competition this season --today, as the Trojans participate in the Wolverine Invitational, at the Mountain Lake Country Club. The annual season-opening meet for most area teams has become one of the bigger cross country races in southwest Minnesota, with close to 20 teams usually competing. "This is a big meet to start the season," noted WHS head coach Mike Traphag
WORTHINGTON -- Almost every human on earth is born with just a little procrastination in his or her system. Some wait until the very last minute to get a project done just under the deadline. Others actually wait until the deadline has passed before they start doing what needs to be done. Sometimes procrastination causes little to no problem, and in other instances, this desire to wait can be very costly.
WORTHINGTON -- Last week, I shared my views about what I thought about the common carp and how it made its way into almost every body of water in North America. Carp are here to stay and the only thing that can be done to limit their devastating effects is to try to control their numbers. As I shared last week, these control measures are really like putting a band-aid on a severely bleeding artery. Even if you can successfully kill off an entire lake, these measures have a short time frame of success because fish do swim around.
