I want to say “Thank You” to everyone for the many cards, prayers and Masses, calls, flowers and gifts. It is really nice to walk to the mail box and am still getting cards. Also what a surprise to my daughter Jo Ann for bringing my sisters to wish me a Happy Birthday. We had laughter and tears and will never forget that when they walk in. Thank you all. May God Bless everyone of you. Love you all.

ELGIN — After struggling most of the season to collect wins, the Elgin Public-Pope John Wolfpack boys basketball team made it two in a row Friday night with a 65 to 32 victory over Newman Grove.
The BlueJays were outmatched from the start as the Wolfpack jumped out to an 11 to 2 lead in the first four minutes of the game. Evan Parks had four points in the run and Ross Schindler connected on a trey. Nick Heithoff added four points in the quarter as EPPJ led 17 to 4 as the clock expired.
Good fortune continued to be on the side of the Wolfpack in the second quarter as Caleb Pelster made one free throw, grabbed the rebound on the second free throw and scored to give the Wolfpack a 22 to 4 lead.
ORCHARD — The Wolfpack girls basketball team returned to their winning ways Thursday night with a 45 to 29 victory over Clearwater/Orchard.
“The girls did an excellent job stepping up in the second half when Jessica went out with an injury. They all stepped up their game and played some good basketball.”
Leading 19 to 16 to start the second half, senior standout Jessica Heithoff went down with an injury and did not return to the game. Her teammates responded by outscoring their opponent 26 to 13 over the final two quarters to claim the victory.
Junior Lauren Selting and sophomore Chelsi Mescher combined to score 21 points. Ashley Bode led the team in rebounds with nine, one more than Mescher.
