IT WAS A HAPPY, come-from-behind Holdrege Junior Legion team which accepted the championshil~ trophy from Dwayne Bostelman in the Area C tournament Monday evening. Holdrege had ~o defeat Falls City in both the Sunday and Monday games to win. Express Photo Another trophy was added to the Superior Volunteer Fire Department's trophy case this week. In fact, two were added when the department's water fight teams placed third and fourth at the Neligh Centennial competition last Sunday af- ternoon. A total of 16 teams entered the two-day competition. Members of the Superior teams included Robert Peterson, Bill Doane, Marvin Smidt, Ron Springer, Norman Disney and Rod Ohlrich. Since the Superior teams didn't enter until Sunday, they had to fight both the winners and the losers from Saturday's competition. They reported it was a rather grueling day as they were required to fight in full uniform with a full stream nozzel on ll/z'' lines with 180 pounds of pressure. They weren't aware, until time for the fights to begin, that Neligh was requiring four man teams so the six Superior men rotated on the two teams. The competition was made worse when a nozzelman, Ron Springer, was hit in the face with a stream of water. He received minor abrasions on his eyes and was out of the com- petition. This Sunday Superior will enter one team in the South Central Water Fighters' Traveling Trophy Cham- pionship to be held at Clay Center. A quarter will go as far as it did 10 years ago.., if it rolls under the bed.
