sports extra As of October 12, 2018 the record for football is 3 to 4. Some high points this season are the number of the number of players they have out for football this year was a greater amount then we had out last year. Last year there wasn’t enough players out to be able to scrimmage. This year 29 boys between Ansley and Litch- field combined to form a competitive team. The schedule for the team this year was extremely competitive playing several teams in bigger schools like South Loup and Burwell. Several of the teams also were in action deep into playoffs last year. The coaching staff commented on how the team is doing really good at bouncing back from loses. “It’s a tough thing to do and we have to just keep going at our best and hope the next time we will win. The goals for the rest of the season is hopefully making the playoffs and above: John Zimmer carrying the ball against Pleasanton be competitive once we get there”. Playoffs will be decided after the October 19th game against Burwell. Spartan Volleyball As of October 13, 2018 the Spartan volleyball teams record is 9 to 15.
