Info for Fremont-Mills Football Game
Fremont-Mills has a new press box/bleacher setup and all fans now sit on the east side of the field. Our bleachers sit 1000 and have standing room for another 250 so there is plenty of room.
Stanton fans will sit on the north side of the bleachers and FM will have the south side. By having fans all on one side both sets of fans can easily get to the concession stand and the rest rooms. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE TRACK IS OFF LIMITS! Inside the fence and on the track is off limits to all but the players, coaches, and stat personnel.
On Thursday, October, 11th, the Viqueens traveled to Essex for their last regular season conference match. The Queens ended their regular season with a victory. Set scores were 25-10, 25-16 and 25-7.
On Saturday, October 14th, the Junior Varsity team traveled to Murray for the Murray JV tournament. Eight teams participated in two different pools. In pool play, the Queens posted wins against Moravia, Murray and East Union to be the top seed in that pool. The team then played Melcher Dallas in the semifinals and won the match with set scores of 25-10, 25-18 which placed the Queens in the championship match. The team played awesome and won the championship in two sets against Mount Ayr. Great job girls!!
The varsity squad headed in to regional action on Tuesday, October 16th, as they hosted Essex for the first round. The Queens won the match which will advance them to round two of regionals on Monday, October 22nd, at home against the Bedford Bulldogs. Game time is 7:00 PM. No passes are allowed and admission for regional games is $6.00 for everyone. Come out and support the Queens as they take on Bedford on Monday night!
The Vikings defeated Griswold last Friday setting the stage for the only two unbeaten teams in the district to face off in their last regular season game. The Vikings will travel to Tabor to test their skills against a very talented Knights roster. The 2 teams split their two meetings in 2017 as the Knights avenged their regular season loss to Vikings to advance to the Dome in the playoffs. The winner of this Friday's game will be crowned the district champion and an automatic bid into the 2018 state playoffs. The preliminary look at the RPI would indicate the Knights would also advance to the playoffs, even with a loss. On the other hand, should the Vikings lose, they would have only the slightest of chances and would need some miraculous upsets across the state to advance to the playoffs as a second place finisher. Kickoff is 7:00. Go Vikes!
Junior High Volleyball
The junior high volleyball team played their last matches of the season last week. On Thursday, the team traveled to Essex. The team won all of their sets with scores of 25-3, 25-19, 25-14 and 25-23. On Saturday, the team participated in the seven-team Viking Center Junior High Tournament. The team won all of their matches in straight sets. Tournament scores were as follows: Bedford White (21-6, 21-7), Sidney (21-8, 21-16), Murray (21-7, 21-12). Their undefeated record for the day placed them in the championship against Sidney. The young Queens continued their winning day with final scores of 21-17 and 21-19 to take the championship trophy! For the season, the team finished with a record of 16 match wins and no losses. Congratulations girls on a great finish to a very successful season!
The team and their coach would like to thank all of the parents, grandparents and friends who came out to support the junior high team throughout the season. A special “Thank You” to John Schultz for officiating all of our home games and to the high school volleyball players who help line judge and run the scoreboard.
Junior High Football
The Junior High football team ended its season Monday night with a loss to East Mills. With the loss, the boys finished with a 2-4 record. Despite being outnumbered and outsized in most games, the boys played hard and showed improvement throughout the season. Most importantly, they were coachable and a blast to be around all season long. Thank you for your support this season and good luck to the boys as the basketball season begins! Go Vikes!
