NORTH GREENE REPORT
By McKea Jones
Tuesday was a busy night for North Greene athletics as JV football, Junior High baseball, and varsity volleyball were all in action.
The Lady Spartans took on Triopia in volleyball, falling in two sets at both JV and Varsity levels to the very talented Trojans.
The JV football team traveled to Palmyra to take on Greenfield. The Tigers had us scoreless at halftime, but we came out much stronger in the second half. Kaleb Williams put the Spartans on the board with two touchdowns. Noah Coates, Jaydon Gardner, and Brendan Staskiewicz all had notable plays for the Spartans. Despite tremendous effort, the Spartans lost the battle to the Tigers.
The Junior High baseball team recognized two eighth graders before their game against Winchester. Congratulations to Boen Berry and Robbie Castleberry on their hard work throughout their North Greene Junior High career.
Friday the Spartans fell to the Greenfield Tigers. Despite injuries early in the game, North Greene remained determined no matter the adversity. The Spartan fans were thrilled to see a connection late in the fourth quarter from Logan Tepen to Ethan Clark to put North Greene on the board with a 72-yard touchdown.
Saturday saw the Lady Spartans at the East Alton-Wood River Tournament. The ladies went 1-3 on the day placing 6th overall. Congratulations to Chelsey Castleberry for being selected for the all-tournament team.
