The team will practice and compete at Strauss Peabody Aquatic and Fitness Center. Both a men’s and women’s teams are planned.

A sizable gift from an anonymous donor is making the swim program possible, said Melanie Harmon, executive director of development. Use of North Manchester’s Aquatic Center by MU athletes and assistance in operation of the facility will strengthen the University’s connection with the community, Harmon said.

Knights fall in overtime heart breaker

by Gary Andrews

In a game that was not decided until the very last play, the Southwood football team fell in a 40-39 sectional overtime heart breaker to South Adams Friday.

With the two teams evenly matched, it boiled down to the last snap to decide a winner. After the Southwood defense held South Adams for the second time, the Knight offense would strike for the first score of the game. With the ball on their own 15 at 3rd and 10, Robbie Cole would connect with Jacob Lloyd to the 32 for a first down. On the second third down of the drive, Cole would find an open receiver once again, connecting with Danny Goff for a 68 yard scoring strike with 4:20 remaining to put the Knights up 7-0. With the touchdown reception, Danny Goff became Southwood’s all-time single season receiver for yards and touchdowns. Just two minutes later, the Starfires would answer the touchdown with one of their own, and the first quarter ended, tied at 7.

Knights one step closer to sectional title

By Gary Andrews

The Southwood football team took on Southern Wells for the second time this season Friday, with the stakes a lot higher the second time around. The Knights beat Southern Wells 29-22 in the first game of the season on Aug. 23, but Friday night a win would put Southwood in the sectional championship game. Leading 7-0 after the first quarter, the Knights put the gas pedal to the floor in route to a 42-22 win and will host South Adams Friday, Nov. 8.

Southern Wells tried to catch the Knights off guard on the opening kickoff, pooching a kick that the Knights recovered. The Knight offense would put Southern Wells’ defense with their backs to the wall right away when they fumbled on the second play, giving the ball to the Raiders on the 46. The defense would respond, forcing a three and out.

Halderman earns all state honors

By Gary Andrews

Northfield junior Jenna Halderman had a day she will remember for life Saturday, Nov. 2. Halderman was running in the cross country state finals for the third time in her career, this time finding the podium as she ran an 18:29 to finish 13th. The top 20 runners earned ”all state” honors.

“At the start I’m going to get out with the front pack and then run my race from there,” said Halderman before the race.

Jenna did just that, finishing just six seconds out of 10th place and 23 seconds from the top 5.

Manchester’s Matthew Fahs-Brown also ran in the state finals, finishing 60th in the boys race in a time of 16:27 to cap off a fantastic junior season.
