Anyone who has never experienced 5-star outdoor-dining has never been to our camp!
Our palates were treated to the most amazing array of gourmet dining; from poke brought all the way from the Hawaiian Islands, to leg of lamb, mouth-watering bbq chicken, spiral sliced ham, beef stroganoff, fried fresh oysters and razor clams, shrimp kabobs and soft-shell crab..accompanied by delightfully delicious side-dishes, appetizers and desserts. And a huge thanks goes out to Katie Evans, Linda Keller, Sharon Price and Jeannie Rodenberg for making a special trip to Westport, Washington to pick up the fresh seafood, plus wine from a local winery or two, for our final night’s extravaganza.
And freshman Grant Rodenberg played his best tennis of the year, according to WHS tennis coach Brett Ivers, upsetting two higher seeded players and finishing second in his No. “Lange and Bourgeois played a great match against a very good Jerseyville team,” Ivers explained. 1, Ian Pallin worked quickly, not dropping in a game in a 6-0, 6-0, win over Andrew Hokanson. 2 with a 6-3, 6-0 win over Wyatt Harron, then Brett Rodenberg won 6-1, 6-1, over Si Hess at singles No. Connor Stefan completed the sweep with a 7-5, 6-0, win over EJ Garcia at singles No. kostenfreie partnerbörse Chemnitz Wyatt Harron, 6-3, 6-0; 3, Brett Rodenberg, GRG, def. This is even more remarkable given that Josh was shooting from new yardage, as he had earned 2 yards previously in the week.Now, with this win, he has shot himself back as far as possible, now at the 27 yard line, with all the pros. Of course our camp was filled with winners of all kinds, too!
But with a Waterloo High School roster of 15 players and a Gibault roster of seven, the two teams are seeing some of their best program numbers and successes.“I think (high school tennis) is finally starting to make a comeback and I hope that trend continues,” Hawks tennis player Michael Lesko told the Republic-Times. Waterloo has an even bigger team than us.” Some of that rising interest has come with the success of the two programs, thanks in part to Waterloo’s veteran team of six seniors and Gibault tennis stand-out Lesko, who last year became the second player in Gibault history — and the first in a few decades — to qualify for state.“After defeating them in three sets, they went back out to play the No. They played well but came up short.” The Bulldogs will look to advance to state in the Belleville West Sectional this weekend, while Gibault took on Mascoutah Tuesday before heading to sectionals Friday and Saturday as well. Teryn was born and raised in Waterloo, growing up watching local sports and Mon-Clair baseball.All under festive party lights, compliments of the Rodenbergs.
Former USCA president Rich Curtis directed the laborious work of re-tooling the Grand Prix for its re-introduction in 1999, and has written the story of the year-long contest each year.
Nearly 400 trapshooters of all skill levels converge from 10 western states to see friends they haven’t seen in a year (as well as those they have), exchange stories and share laughter, and, of course, participate in the challenging sport of shooting clay targets which are flying through the air at 42 MPH. Let’s just say that reloaders have some catching up to do to replenish their supply of shells!
For those who chose to shoot the entire program, that amounted to 1,600 targets they attempted to crush. Oh, and there were shoot-offs and special events as well, so there was shooting-a-plenty.
Not only are the Hawks coming armed with Lesko, but also a solid No. “He has had a lot of good wins and gets the most out of his game,” Haines explained. “Because of their size they should be really good in doubles.” Waterloo also has a strong No.
“Other than Michael he is the most competitive on our team.” GHS also has a strong doubles team in tall brothers Caleb (6’2”) and Jacob Weiler (6’7”). 1 player in Damon Lange and a powerhouse doubles team in Lange and Clayton Bourgeios.
