Eagles open 2015 season at Peru State

Eagles open 2015 season at Peru State
The 2014 season was on its way to being a magical year for the Central Methodist football team. Halfway through the season, the Eagles had beaten MidAmerica Nazarene for the first time in 23 years, were winners of three-straight conference games and were receiving votes in the NAIA Top 25 poll.
It all seemed to unravel, however, in the Eagles’ loss at Graceland, blowing a 13-point halftime lead. Compound that with injuries and a tough schedule during the second half of the season, and Central Methodist lost four of its last five games.

The Sturgeon senior right-hander struck out 12 batters, including three in the bottom of the seventh inning, to secure an 8-2 Sturgeon win.

Hackman runs past the competition at Salisbury 3500
It was 10 minutes before the boys race of the Salisbury 3500 was set to begin, and all of the competitors were at the starting line, warming up for the opening cross country race of the fall.
Well, not all of the competitors.
Hayden Hackman was sitting in the shade to the left of the starting line, while all the other competitors were standing in the sun. There was a reason why he chose to isolate himself from the rest of the pack.
