CORPUS CHRISTI — Victoria West didn’t expect an athletic meet, but got one.

The Warriors gave up 744 total rushing yards in a 74-59 loss to the Brownsville Veterans Memorial at Cabaniss Stadium on Thursday. West had 558 total rushing yards.

“We just couldn’t keep up. We left it all on the field and did our best, main receiver Jeremiah Baldwin said. “Our whole team ended up missing. It’s something we have to live with. »

The Warriors had no answer for Chargers leading running back Bryan Chavez, who rushed for 429 yards and nine touchdowns to put Veterans Memorial in the regional semifinals next week against Corpus Christi Miller or Pharr-San Juan Alamo North.

West (6-6) had three days to prepare for Veterans Memorial‘s triple-option offense and was without senior linebacker Jaxx Rangnow.

“It definitely had an effect,” senior linebacker Clayton Sciba said. “It’s just not the same going up against JV players as going up against the real thing. Their linemen were also fast. I was on the ground almost every game.

Chavez had 17 carries for 212 yards and four touchdowns to give the Chargers a 41-23 halftime lead. His nine touchdowns put him tied with 12 others, including former Hallettsville running back Jonathon Brooks, for the fourth-most touchdowns in a single UIL game at 11.

“I wasn’t trying to go there,” Chavez said. “Scoring touchdown after touchdown, I didn’t even think about that.”

West senior D’andre Fillmore had his own career night in the loss with six catches for 223 yards and five touchdowns.

“I thought we had a good chance,” Fillmore said. “We just had to keep scoring. That just didn’t happen with this game.

Four of Fillmore’s touchdown receptions were 30 yards or more, including two over 60 yards.

“The thing about Fillmore is watching him keep working to get better, never being satisfied,” West head coach Courtney Boyce said. “Obviously he is a big, big key to our attack. Just shout out to our seniors, the leadership and resilience from the start of the season all the way through.

Veterans Memorial has scored touchdowns on 11 of 12 possessions, with the 12th being short on time. The Warriors scored touchdowns on their first three drives, but settled for a field goal inside the red zone on the fourth and kicked off on the fifth to close out the first half.

West had a chance to pace Veterans Memorial on third and goal from the Chargers 1-yard line with 4:30 left in the first half, but a false start and incomplete pass led to a a 23-yard field goal. by Armando Rojas senior.

“At the end of the half, it’s a small part of the game,” West head coach Courtney Boyce said. “That’s when we allowed them to extend the lead and then it was kind of back and forth from there.”

Junior quarterback Camden Repper opened the game by completing nine of his first 13 passes, including each of his first four with touchdown passes for 63 and 37 yards to Fillmore in the first quarter.

He finished the game 20 of 29 passing for 412 yards and six touchdowns, both season highs. Repper also added a 3-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Junior running back Kamauri Montgomery had 114 yards and a touchdown.

“Our kids were fighting,” Boyce said. “They do a great job, just the hiccups. In this type of game, it will catch up with you. Hats off to (Veterans Memorial) and hats off to our kids for their fight.

Arizona Honor Flight Brings Veterans to Vietnam Wall https://20thcvetsmem.org/arizona-honor-flight-brings-veterans-to-vietnam-wall/ Mon, 14 Nov 2022 05:28:00 +0000 https://20thcvetsmem.org/arizona-honor-flight-brings-veterans-to-vietnam-wall/ A ceremony at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial gives veterans the thanks they never received when they returned home.

A ceremony at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial gives veterans the thanks they never received when they returned home.

WASHINGTON, DC, USA – The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is changing.

It changes from hour to hour, day, year.

It changes the people who travel to see it. It changes the people who see themselves in it.

It was a complicated war. The nation was not united behind her. Thousands and thousands of men were sent overseas to fight in Vietnam. Thousands never returned.

Those who returned home were not always greeted with thanks and congratulations.

“I was at the Saigon Embassy on April 14,” said Gabriel Brasso, standing next to the wall. “Enough to see stuff.

The Arizona Honor Flight brought Brasso and a busload of other veterans to Washington D.C. to view memorials and monuments built in their honor. War memorials always bring back memories. Sometimes these are memories that veterans would have preferred to forget.

“People were trying to give us their babies,” he said. “You don’t know how bad things get when someone would rather you just take their child and give them a better chance at life.”

It was a lot for Brasso to bear. He lost friends, he saw things he still remembers today – 50 years after the end of the war.

“After I lost my boyfriend, when I came back, I had to go to Long Beach Hospital or a while to try to get my things together,” he said.

When he came back, the names they gave him hurt him. Serving in the war overwhelmed him. Brasso explained that he was not always proud to serve in Vietnam.

“The only good thing about being in Nam is the other Vietnam veterans,” he said. “Never from the general public.”

But during the trip to the Vietnam Memorial, something changed.

The Vietnam War Commemoration brought together all Vietnam veterans on the Honor Flight trip for a small ceremony next to the wall. A representative of the group gave them each a small pin with this engraving: “A grateful nation thanks and honors you for your service and sacrifice.”

There, faced with the names of so many dead, Gabriel Brasso stood to attention and received his pin with a handshake and a “thank you” which was also partly an apology.

There, in front of the wall, 50 years after the war, a group of Vietnam veterans have finally returned home.

“It makes me feel better,” Brasso said. “Before…I didn’t feel so good.”

Anticipating the calm before the storm, some Veterans Day events originally scheduled for Friday have been moved up a day due to the expected landfall of the remnants of Hurricane Nicole. The system is expected to bring 2 to 2.5 inches of rain to the area on Friday.

Nicole is expected to hit the Florida coast as a hurricane later today. The remains will then travel up the East Coast, through North Carolina, Virginia and eventually Pennsylvania.

“It’s not necessarily the traffic center itself, that’s the only thing we have to worry about, but there’s also the rain which is supposed to develop in front of it,” he added. according to Michael Colbert, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service at State College.

“The remnants of Nicole will join with a non-tropical storm, a cold front to the west. The two will work together to create a large rain shield moving into Pennsylvania beginning Thursday night, but especially Friday night into Friday night. », Colbert said.

Rain is expected to start later tonight with the heaviest amount falling during the day and into Friday night. There is also the possibility of isolated areas of flooding.

Robert Minier talks about his clean-up plans and new additions to exhibits at the Veterans Memorial Grove in Old Lycoming Township on Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2022. Minier, who volunteers at the grove, was raking leaves to clean up the grove for visitors for the Veterans Day. DAVE KENNEDY/Sun Gazette

“The good thing is that we’ve been pretty dry the past few months. We start with rivers, streams and streams that are low to start with, so that will help us, Colbert said.

“But, with a wide range of a few centimeters of rain and locally higher amounts falling within a 12 to 24 hour window, this will likely lead to minor localized flooding, especially in areas with poor drainage issues. “, he added.

Leaves fallen from trees and raked up to the sidewalk can also increase the risk of surface flooding.

“Leaves are falling off the trees and those leaves could clog storm drains. With that in mind, there could be some localized flooding, but we don’t expect anything major or widespread,” Colbert said.

Due to heavy rainfall expected on Friday, the Veterans Day ceremony that was scheduled for Montoursville Cemetery has been cancelled.

The ceremony at Veterans’ Grove Memorial, on Lycoming Creek Road and West Cottage Avenue in Old Lycoming Township will take place, but has been moved to today at 5:30 p.m.

During the ceremony, the six luminous points, which represent the six branches of the army, will be lit, specified Robert Minier, volunteer at the memorial.

The lighting also kicks off a fundraiser for the sale of Christmas decorations, with proceeds from the sale going to Wilkes-Barre VA Hospital. Minier hopes to get the donations to the VA before Christmas.

Take advantage of the weather today as it should be cloudy with sunny spells pushing the temperature up to around 60, Colbert said.

Tonight is expected to be mostly dry, but it is possible that some rain will start falling in the area after 1:00 a.m. The heaviest rain will begin after sunrise on Friday. Although it won’t rain all the time, there will be intermittent spells of rain through Friday night, Colbert said.

The weekend promises to be drier, with an alternation of sun and clouds on Saturday. There will be a breeze as the cold air begins to enter. Winds from the west on Saturday will be around 15 mph with gusts of 25 mph.

Cold air arrives with highs in the 50s and overnight lows in the mid 30s.

Fall returns on Sunday with highs in the mid-40s.

It’s a much colder Sunday afternoon with temperatures near or slightly below average for this time of year, Colbert said.

While it may seem a bit late for a tropical storm to pass through the region, Colbert noted that the Atlantic Basin tropical system ends on Nov. 30.

“We are still in this tropical season. This is the time of year when these begin to calm down. It’s about to end, but not unprecedented,” he said.

Three runners from Walla Walla High will qualify for next Saturday’s Washington State cross country meet after the District 8 Championships at Veterans Memorial Golf Course on Saturday, October 29.

The meet featured runners from the Mid-Columbia Conference and the Greater Spokane League.

Emmalyne Jimenez, Brody Hartley and Ian Lash are now heading to Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco on Saturday for state races.

“Boys and girls ran with a lot of heart today,” said Blue Devils coach Michael Locati. “We knew going in that we were looking for one of three reportable spots on the boys and girls side. just didn’t. We only had from internet time and what we knew about some of the courses.

“Ultimately, the Spokane school was just too deep, he said. “But boy, did our kids compete. We had to deal with a lot of different circumstances over the year, but they didn’t give up and kept pushing through it all. I’m really proud of them. They’re such a great group of kids, so fun to coach this year.”

The top three teams and 21 individuals qualified for the state.

On the girls side, Mt. Spokane took the top honors winning the District 8 title, followed by Mead and Cheney. Wa-Hi placed sixth, but was the top MCC team.

Individually, Jimenez placed seventh to punch her ticket to the state meet for the second straight year.

“Emmalyne had the best run of her career today with a PR of 21 seconds in 19:27 over the 5 kilometer course,” Locati said. “She ran such a smart race. She was somewhere around 15th after the first mile and then did what she always does and had a great race in the second half. Emmalyne was the better runner MCC for the day.”

The 3A girls race was won by Charlotte Pederson of Mt. Spokane in 18:19 (setting a new course record, which was then broken in the 4A race by Nicole Bissell of Central Valley in 18:14).

The other Blue Devil girls were Miriam Hutchens 30th in 9:22 p.m., Stella Billingsley 35th in 9:41 p.m., Macy Eggart 36th in 9:41 p.m., Ada Velluzzi 40th in 9:45 p.m. and Carly Newton 66th in 24:07.

“I was thrilled with how the girls ran together and helped each other out today,” Locati said. “Stella and Ada have both broken season or personal bests. We only lose one girl in college, they have a bright future ahead of them.”

On the boys’ side, Mt. Spokane again took top honors, with Mead and Cheney rounding out the state qualifying teams. Walla Walla placed fourth and was again the top team in MCC.

“Brody ran the course in 15:23, beating the nearest competitor by almost 30 seconds to claim the District 8 title,” Locati said. “Brody took the lead early and had a small gap but after the second mile he closed really well and doubled his lead. He’s been running really well right now considering the short season he’s had. I think he also runs like he always has and at the right time.

“In his first cross country season, Ian Lash is the surprise of the team,” he said. “Ian was 12th in 16:28 after only his third race of the year. Ian got into a great position in the first mile and then was able to come back up and hit his ticket to state. He had the looked really strong the whole race.”

The other Wa-Hi boys were Turner VanSlyke 32nd in 5:20 p.m., Liam Bergevin 36th in 5:28 p.m., Lincoln James 50th in 6:02 p.m., Gabe Coram 51st in 6:04 p.m. and Jakob Sullivan 62nd in 6:35 p.m.

“Ian, Turner, Lincoln and Jakob all broke personal bests today,” Locati said. “Liam, who is coming back from a foot injury, had a really good day today and it was good for him to finish on a high note.

“We say goodbye to our seniors Emmalyne Jimenez, Brody Hartley, Liam Bergevin, Tas Grimm and Marcus Christopher, all of whom ran college for us this year,” Locati said. “They have been great leaders in the team and they will be missed.”

We are officially in the home stretch! There are three weeks left in the 2022 high school football season, and playoff positioning is up for grabs this Friday night as district races come to a head. The best example is our Game of the Week for Week 9 of our Big Game (BGC) coverage, featuring two top 10 teams battling it out in Division I of District 12-5A:

BGC Game of the Week: No. 7 New Braunfels Canyon vs. No. 9 Seguin, Matador Stadium, 7:30 p.m.

The Matadors host the Cougars in a game that means more than a head start in the district standings.

Former Seguin head coach Travis Bush leads the New Braunfels Canyon and their scorching offense at Matador Stadium after posting 44 or more points in consecutive games. Quarterback Deuce Adams coordinates an incredible passing offense that is the main driver of an offense that is scoring nearly 40 points per game this season. This average understand a pretty amazing outlier in a white road loss to Smithson Valley. Either way, Xayvion Noland and Eli Adams have proven to be an impressive wide receiver tandem, regularly torching defenses throughout the season.

Seguin’s offense has the firepower to keep pace. Quarterback Corey Dailey has connected well with star receiver Devin Matthews throughout the season so far. Matthews leads the Matadors with 16 total touchdowns, while running back John Jackson provided the necessary offensive balance. Seguin has scored 39 or more points in five straight wins.

If the Matadors win, they will remain undefeated in district play and earn a slice of pride by beating their former coaches. If the Cougars win, they’ll tie Seguin in the standings and drag them into a three-way tie with Wagner. Expect offensive fireworks at Matador Stadium. We’ll have all the highlights tonight on Nightbeat.

(KSAT)

Clemens vs. New Braunfels, Unicorn Stadium, 7:30 p.m.

After dropping their last two District 27-6A contests, Clemens heads to New Braunfels in a bid to resume the hunt for the playoffs. The Buffaloes lost close games to San Marcos (28-24) and Judson (27-24) and fell below .500 for the first time this season. Meanwhile, the Unicorns are in the midst of a four-way battle for playoff positioning with a 1-1 record in district play. New Braunfels bounced back nicely from a tough loss to No. 1 Steele with a convincing 35-13 win over East Central last week.

Friday night’s showdown will have a major impact on who ultimately comes out 27-6A this season. It’s a stop on this week’s BGC Road Trip, and it’s also one of 11 games you’re streaming live on the BGC app tonight. Including:

(KSAT)

Veterans Memorial vs. Pieper, Warrior Coliseum, 7:00 p.m.

If you’re looking for offensive firepower, check out the Warriors’ home game against the Patriots.

Veterans Memorial has scored 44 or more points in three straight games, including 49 points against traditional Class 5A powerhouse Liberty Hill on the road. Running back James Peoples has been an absolute yardstick, averaging 4 touchdowns per game over the past three games. On the other side of the ledger, the Warriors come in after posting their best offensive performance in a 49-14 win over Bastrop Cedar Creek.

ROSSFORD – Additional hazardous materials were found during the demolition of Eagle Point School, resulting in an additional cost of $50,000.

Additional vermiculite, found inside a wall during demolition.

The original contract with Klumm Brothers was for $357,000. The contract provided for a contingent fee of 10%, or $35,000. The change order was $49,995, for $406,995.

At last week’s meeting, the board approved the additional $14,295, which was outside of the contingent fee.

Also at the meeting, Ohio Board of Auditors representative Lori Brodie presented Rossford Chief Financial Officer Kelly O’Boyle with a Distinction Award for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the report full annual financial and compliance for 2022.
