Jays hold on to defeat Panthers (01/12/10)
Thus far in his high school career, David Tillman has been better known for his cross country exploits than his basketball prowess. But with the Gehlen Jays trailing winless Kingsley-Pierson by five in their non-league contest on Monday, the 5-foot-7 senior came off the bench to hit a pair of key second quarter 3-pointers to give Gehlen a lead it would not relinquish in a 61-53 win over the Panthers...
Lady Jays rebound with 52-29 win over K-P (01/12/10)
The Lady Jays desperately needed Monday's 52-29 win over Kingsley-Pierson. The much-needed win came on the heels of half a week of snow days which were preceded by a heartbreaking 35-34 loss to Akron-Westfield on the Lady Jays' home court. "We needed to get back out on the floor because that was a bad, bad loss," Gehlen Catholic head coach Marty Kurth said of last Tuesday's loss to A-W. "We just kind of handed that one away - we had many opportunities to win that one and didn't."...

Like most of those affiliated with the Remsen St. Mary's boys basketball team, co-head coaches Scott Ruden and Joe Schroeder could only grasp for answers in the bowels of the Tyson Events Center on Monday. "We were not ready to play," said Ruden, whose Hawks fell 85-42 to Sergeant Bluff-Luton. "I don't know if it was the atmosphere, the different time of the day or not having school today and not having a regular routine. None of that is an excuse. We just weren't ready to play."...

Newspapers remain leading source of local news (01/12/10)
A Utah newspaper, the Milford News, was once published with the motto, "The only newspaper in the world that gives a damn about Milford, Utah." We don't know if the paper is still in operation, but the 1,400 residents of Milford probably have a wide variety of news available in electronic form via the Internet, satellite, radio or television...
