Cross Country 9/21
Drafting on the downwind, Sybil Giefer fires up the hill. Giefer commented on the events of the evening, “Although it was hot and windy, I really enjoyed being at the meet, especially when the girls’ team won because it’s the first time we have been able to run as a full girls’ 2A team. It was really exciting when they announced we got first!”

Trego Eagles tame the Bulldogs

Football 9/15

Running in for a touchdown, Dallas Schneider helps lead the Eagles to a 50-0 Homecoming victory over the Quinter Bulldogs on September 15.

By Dawson Arnold
Trego tamed the Quinter Bulldogs on Friday, September 15 with a 50-0 victory.

The first quarter was exciting right off the bat with Dallas Schneider returning a kickoff for a touchdown, and Keagan Shubert putting in an extra two points. Trego continued strong after Shubert threw a pass to Carter Minson for a touchdown.  At the end of the first, the score was 14-0.

The second quarter was a repeat of the first, with Minson scoring his second touchdown of the night. Then Shubert snuck in another two points. Schneider then followed him with a 38 yard run touchdown for the Eagles. The pass to Brendan Flax was good for two more points.  Not to be left out, Hunter Olson took the ball in for another Golden Eagle touchdown.  Finally to end the second quarter, Schneider ran the ball for a 31 yard touchdown.

Trego left the field at half-time one point short of ending the game early. The Eagles came out strong in the third quarter and scored the touchdown they needed to end the game with Hunter Price running the ball for a six yard run. Trego ended the game with a final score of 50-0.

The Eagle victory was due in part to a strong game played by Schneider who ran for 116 yards and had three touchdowns. The Eagles will face Wallace County on September 22.
