Last Friday night, Sept. 15, the WWSSC Blackhawks were on the road in Miller to compete against the Miller/Highmore-

Harrold Rustlers. The Blackhawks started scoring early in the first quarter and just kept pushing their way to a 41-0 victory. 

Blake Larson scored the first touchdown for the Blackhawks when he caught an eight-yard pass from Holden Havlik. The two-point conversion failed. Larson then threw a 33-yard pass to hit Brock Krueger for the Blackhawks’ next six points, and Tyson Eddy worked his magic to get the extra two points with a short run, which brought the score to 14-0. Larson just kept working for the Blackhawks as he scored another touchdown, catching a two-yard pass from Havlik. After Brett Miller kicked the extra point for that run, the score at the end of the first quarter was 21-0, Blackhawks.

In the second quarter, Havlik found Krueger with a 52-yard pass for another six points, and Miller added the successful PAT to make the score 28-0, Blackhawks. Later that same quarter, Bryce Larson scored with a three-yard pass tossed to him by Havlik. Miller’s kick failed after that touchdown, so the score was 34-0 going into the third quarter.

Once the third quarter started, things slowed down a bit for the Blackhawks. However, before it was over, Havlik ran 40 yards in for the last six points for WWSSC. With Miller’s PAT added, the score was 41-0 from that point until the end for the Blackhawks win.

The WWSSC Blackhawks rise to 4-0 on the year as they go into their homecoming week with the homecoming game tomorrow night (Friday) against the Tripp-Delmont/Armour/Andes Central/Dakota Christian Thunderhawks in Wessington Springs at 7 p.m.

With a “Cartoons” theme this year, Blackhawks Homecoming Week is upon us, and the festivities have started. Everything started on Monday with Spirit Week days designated in Woonsocket as Pajama Day and Sanborn Central had “Monsters University” Wear Your Favorite College Gear Day. Coronation was on Monday night at both schools with Cooper Goldammer and Kara Wormstadt being crowned as royalty at Sanborn Central and Kam Ochsner and Evan VonEye receiving the honor at Woonsocket. 

The Blackhawks volleyball girls had their only game of the week on Tuesday night against Wolsey-Wessington at Sanborn Central, and the homecoming football game will be on Friday night at Wessington Springs against the TDA/AC/DC Thunderhawks. Results from those games along with all other activities and designated spirit days will be in next week’s issue of the Sanborn Weekly Journal. 

There will be two extra color pages in next week’s issue for Homecoming photos. If you would like to help sponsor those pages, please contact Carrie Howard at (605) 796-4221 or (605) 770-8997.

On Saturday, Sept. 16, firefighters from around the area converged in Woonsocket for the Town & Country Fire Department’s fourth annual Firefighter Training Day. This annual event is held to provide quality, real world training and information to fire departments. This year’s topic was all things hose and nozzle related. Students walked away with a better understanding of the difference between types of hose and nozzles, how to maintain, how to efficiently use, and how to be a better prepared firefighter. The class was made possible by Fire & Iron Station 49 motorcycle club and donations made to the department. Instructors once again came from the Sioux Falls-based Pheasant Country FOOLS. Eighteen firefighters from seven fire departments attended. Departments attending were Canistota, Canova, Fedora, Huron, Mitchell, Redfield and Town & Country.
