Shephard leads VSU swimmers at State

By Valerie Close · November 8th, 2018
Members of the VSU Girls Swim Team competed at State this past weekend in Marshalltown. Arabella Shepard, Geordyn Webster, Clarissa Carolan & Lexi Goodell swam in the 200 Medley Relay event, finishing in 29th place. Arabella also swam in the 100 Butterfly (6th place overall) and the 100 Backstroke (13th place overall).

Big day for VSU girls! Arabella Shepard qualified in 2 individual events (100 butterfly and 100 backstroke) and our 200 Medley Relay also qualified (made up of Shepard, Lexi Goodell, Geordyn Webster, and Clarissa Carolan). Almost every single VSU swim today ended in a time drop - each swimmer achieving at least 1 personal best.

Early in the 2007 football season, Joe Hadachek gestured to the team on other side of the field at the end one of his very first games as the Union head coach. “They have a winning football tradition,” he said that night. “Here at Union, we are trying to start one.” Now, Union is preparing for the 2018 playoff season, its 11th consecutive post-season appearance.

Union will travel to Waukon on Friday, as the 2018 Iowa High School football post-season begins. Meanwhile, Benton Community will host Greene County. Union went to West Marshall last night, hoping for a win and an outright Class 2A, District 2 championshiop. But the 26-16 loss to the Trojans means that Union, Benton and West Marshall will share the district title and automatic playoff berths.

Vinton-Shellsburg wraps up its football season at Benton Community, playing a Bocat team that still hopes to at least share the Class 2A District 7 title. The Vikings (0-8) will play the Bobcats in Van Horne. Benton is 7-1 overall and 3-1 in district play, one game behind Union, which is 4-0 in district play.

On to State: Area athletes advance in Special Olympic bowling

By Vinton Today · October 19th, 2018
Several local Special Olympics athletes competed at the East Central Special Olympics Regional Bowling competition on Tuesday, and a few of them advanced to the State contest by finishing first in their division. All first place finishers earned the chance to compete Nov. 17, at Westdale Bowling Center in Cedar Rapids.

While only seen in public for a couple of hours on a few Friday nights, the Vinton-Shellsburg High School cheerleaders have each spent nearly 200 hours this season (including activities during the summer) in practices, clinics (including one in Ames), bus rides, community service activities such as the Step Up For Down Syndrome Walk.

Senior Night, for high school sports teams, is often a chance to honor players for contributions to the team that may not show up on the scoreboard or stat sheets. It's an opportunity to recognize the effort a player brings to practice and the way that player inspires others by their loyalty, determination and desire.
