RANTOUL — Kevonte Williams and Kevin Williams are finally seniors, which means area high school boys basketball coaches will have to contend with the
athletic front court from Rantoul for another season — much like they did last
season ... and the year before that ... and the year before that as well.
Games of the Year
Fisher Bunnies v. Amboy Clippers – IHSA Class 1A softball super-sectional
RANTOUL/FISHER — Just 58 days remain between Wednesday and opening kickoff of the 2016 preps football season.
CHAMPAIGN — Eight baseball players from Rantoul, Fisher and Armstrong-Potomac were named to The News-Gazette’s all-area baseball team last week.
Rantoul’s Brad Graybill was an all-area special mention, while teammates Keegan Brooks and Caleb Gossett were named honorable mentions.
Most Valuable Player
Emilee Schwing — Fisher
Although she is a little on the quiet side, Schwing is more than happy to let her bat, her speed and her fielding do the talking for her.
MATTOON — A blazing sun in clear skies caused temperatures on the fields to rise past the 100-degree mark during the United States Specialty Sports Association’s Central Illinois state softball tournament last weekend at the Roundhouse Sports Complex in Mattoon.
FISHER — The News-Gazette made the day of three Fisher softball players when it named Megan McCoy, Emilee Schwing and Toree Stalter to the publication's all-are first team.
Why he’s Coach of the Year: Ingold not only guided the Bunnies to their fourth consecutive Class 1A regional title but Fisher also won its first sectional title and super-sectional game and had a fourth-place finish in state.
