  • State experience encourages shooters
    Among the state’s 86 Class A clay target shooting teams, the 2016 Spring Grove Lions were one of only 11 teams to qualify for the state tournament.

  • Pitching rule promotes protection of high school arms
    There is a segment of baseball fans in America who’ve watched the game for a long time, and they may feel one of the changes that have not been positive for the game is the pitch count. Major league baseball pitchers aren’t known for pitching as late into ballgames as they have in the past, due in part to a pitch count.

The team then snapped a two-game skid with the season’s first victory over La Crescent in a slugfest.
