Superior varsity boys lose in first round of SNC tournament The Superior High School varsity boys basketball team dropped to 7-8 for the season with a 52-40 loss to Tri- County Monday in the first round of the Southern Nebraska Conference L-N Raiders, 10-4, lose to Blue Hill, beat Silver Lake The Lawrence-Nelson varsity boys basketball team moved to 10-4 for the season last week with a win at Silver Lake and a loss at home against Blue Hill. Garret Svoboda led the Raiders with 16 points in the 47-44 loss to Blue Hill, followed by Derek Harrington eight, Jason Pohlmeier seven, Jared Reiman five, Andy Peterson three, Michael Schroer three and Addison McCartney two. Svoboda added another double- double to his season, picking up 10 boards to go along with his 16 points, however the Bobcats won the rebound war 24-18. The Raiders were better from two-point range -- 60 percent compared to just 42 percent for Blue Hill -- however the Bobcats were 83 percent from the free-throw line, com- pared to 42 percent for Lawrence- Nelson. c "The effort against Blue Hill was gratifying considering how poorly we played last week against Bruning-Dav- enpOrt, but it was still a loss. We've now played state-rated Gilmer and Blue Hill right down to the wire, and while those efforts were outstanding, we still need to finish the deal and win games like those," said Tom Jensen, Raider head coach. "We were down by I 1 in the middle of the third quarter when Garret Svoboda dished out three as- sists in four possessions and got one himself from Andy Peterson to cut the lead to one. Then Andy hit Garret for a three at the end of the period to tie it. Andy and Jared Reiman had two ex- cellent shots at the end to tie it, but missed, Jared's looked like nothing but net, but grazed the back of the rim and bounced out." Jensen said poor shooting by both teams marked the Raiders' 50-35 win against Silver Lake. Jason Pohlmeier led with 14 points, followed by Garret Svoboda 10, Derek Harrington 10, Andy Peterson seven, Addison McCartney five, Michael Schroer two and JacobiHimmelberg two. "We tried to up the tempo with full-court man defense against the Mustangs at the start of the third pe- riod, but it backfired when they scored 12 points in less thiin three minutes to tie the game at 26," Jensen said. "We went back to our match-up zone and outscored them 24-9 the rest of the way to get the win." The Raiders were 32 percent from two-point range, compared to 37 per- cent for the Mustangs; 21 percent from three-point range, compared to six per- cent for Silver Lake; and 79 percent from the free-throw line, compared to 33 percent for the Mustangs.

Guide Rock By Sandy Larkey Rich and Wanda Langer were brunch guests of Jerry and Deb Langer on Sunday, Jan. 24. Nine people attended the coffee hour at the senior center, last Wednesday; Darlene Brumbaugh, Goldie Duffy, Arlene Anderson, Gertrude Heller, Lenore, Jeaniece Montgomery, Ann Konen, Caroldene Williams and Sandy Larkey shared gingerbread, banana bread, peanut butter cookies and iced cookies. Gertie Heller shared with the group some chocolate candies flavored with Kirsch, and some baklava she received during the holidays. She also had "show and tell" of an embroidered pink baby dress she had received from her in-laws on the occasion of the birth of their first grandchild. Sandy Larkey also had "show and tell", a quilt block from the mystery quilt 1St'eject of the Kountry Quilters of Superior. A mys- tery quilt is one in which the maker does not know what the design is going to be until it is all finished; a set of instructions for a part of the quilt is passed out at guild meeting each month. After the final set of instructions on how to assemble the various parts, the members finish the quilts and bring them to the next guild meeting. It is Thursday, February 4, 2010 of colors.
