Football v ACGC I Bylamie Leither, coach The Kimball Cubs hosted their first playoff game in 17 years Tues- day night, Oct. 25, against a very physical ACGC team. The third- seeded Cubs were excited to start the playoffs right. The first score went to the Falcons as the Cubs botched a punt attempt that was recovered in the end zone for a touchdown. The Cubs found themselves down 7-0. It didn't take long for the Cubs to answer back as sophomore quarterback Cam- eron Hunt found junior WR Pres- ton Peglow for a 48-yard touch- down pass, a theme that would replay itself many times this night. With a Jordan Joseph PAT, the score was tied at 7 after one quar- ter of play. The Falcons took the lead early in the second quarter 15-8, the Cubs struck back in six plays later Hunt to Peglow for eight yards out and the PAT was good to make the score 15-14 ACGC. The Cubs defense forced a three and out. The Cubs got the ball back and scored two plays later Hunt to Peglow from 18 yards out with the PAT from Joseph, made the score 21-15 Kimball and that is how the half ended. The second half started with defense stopping the Faclcons and forcing a punt. The Cubs struck again four plays with once again Hunt to Peglow to make the score 27-15. Next defensive series, the Cubs' sophomore defensive end Austin Schiefelbein forced a fum- ble that Peglow recovered and four plays later caught his fifth touch- down pass to make the score 33-15. The defense of the Cubs began to force the ACGC offense to reach deep into their playboooks and use plays they don't like to use, and pounded the QB and RB the whole second half. The third quarter ended with the Cubs lead- ing 33-21. The final score for the Cubs was on an ll-yard run by senior RB Danny Lochen, which put the final nail in ACGC's coffin. The final was 39 to 21 Cubs. This was a historic night for the Cub's offense. There were seven records broken or tied in the pass- ing game. Preston Peglow fin- ished with 11 catches (tied a school record) for 236 (is a new school record and is in the top ten in state history) for five touchdowns (new school record). The five touch- downs receiving also tied a state record according to the Minne- sota State High School League. Cameron Hunt was 23 comple- tions (new school record) out of 34 attempts for 371 yards (2 all- time in school history) for five tds (new school record). Everybody that played on the offense helped to achieve these numbers for these two good young men. The coach- ing staff is proud of the team for the performance. The defense did just as great a job against the very big and physical offense of ACGC. The Falcons came into the game averaging 320 yards a game rush- ing, the Cubs held them to 123 yards on 53 carries. The whole defense were stars to the staff. Tra- vis Schiefelbein led the team with 17 tackles followed by junior Tim Konz with 11 tackles, and senior DT Alex Thruber with 10 big tack- les. The Cubs had four sacks with Travis Wills, Austin Schiefelbein, Thurber, and Andy Linn each with one. They had three interceptions, Sophomore Cameron Hunt passes to his favorite receiver for the night, #30 Preston Peglow. Hunt set a school record with 23 completions out of 34 attempts for 371 yards.

Jr. varsity volleyball ends season 15-6 By Amy Notch, Co-head volleyball coach The Cubs junior varsity pro- gram completed a successful sea- son for 2011. The team, comprised of three juniors, five sophomores, and two freshmen, played a busy schedule with 14 evening matches and two Saturday tournaments. In the final two matches of the season, the Cubs split. On Tuesday, Oct. 18, the Cubs played a tough match against the B-B-E Jaguars. Set scores against the Jaguars were 22-25 and 17-25. Monday, Oct. 24, the Cubs started slowly in set one against the Litchfield Dragons. The gifts were stuck in a rotation that cost them 14 straight points. They lost, 10-25. In set two, the Cubs regained their composure and passed well so that they could run their strong offense. Set two's score was 25-13. In set three, the Cubs went back and forth with the Dragons for the first five points. Then Stacy Hurrle came to the line and served five straight points. The Cubs finished off the Dragons in set three, 15-10. The junior varsity finished with a conference record of 5-2, losing only to B-B-E and HL-W-W in conference play. The overall record for the sea- son is indicative of the leadership from juniors Laura Frank, Kenadi Mackereth, and Kaylee Petty. Soph- omores on the team included Hol- lie Donnay, Shelby Schiefelbein, Becca Frank, Tessa Mackereth, and Stacy Hurrle. Freshmen Macey Hur- fie and Emily Donnay rounded out the squad. Special thanks to our fans, especially the parents who fol- lowed us around central Minne- sota as we competed this season. Next year's volleyball season looks to be exciting as these athletes will continue to develop their volley- ball skills over the off-season in preparation for the 2012 season. Cubs volleyball finishes season Against B-B-E in second round of playoffs By Tabitha Mortenson, coach The Kimball Cubs volleyball team were busy last week when they finished up regular season play against Litchfield at home on Monday, Oct. 24, started playoffs on Thursday night, Oct. 27, against Osakis, and finished playoffs at B-B-E on Friday night, Oct. 28. Monday night's match ended victoriously for the Cubs in a 3-1 finish. Stat highlights included Holly Erickson serving 13/14 with three aces and 11 points, Bre- ane Meierhofer earning 12 kills and four total blocks, and Rachel Arnold accruing 36 set assists. Set scores were 25-19, 25-20, 20-25, 25-21. Fifth-seed Kimball traveled to fourth-seed Osakis to earn another shot at advancing in playoffs. The Cubs started strong, taking the first set 25-18, but Osakis battled back in the second to win 25-21. Games three and four echoed the same with Kimball taking game three 25q6, and Osakis taking the fourth game, 25-18. The Cubs put all they had into the last set to win the battle 15-8. Match highlights go to Rachel Arnold with 46 set assists, Cora Gohmann with seven service aces and three blocks, Bre- ane Meierhofer with 16 kills and 11 digs, and Stephanie Konz with 15 kills. The Cubs then headed west to Belgrade Friday night. Kimball had previously gone in 0-3 with close set scores earlier in regular season competition, so they were look- ing for a good rematch. At first, the Cubs played tight, falling to a 3-12 deficit. They struggled to find their block and lost the first set 13-25. Once players started to relax, find- ing their rhythm and their block, the Cubs pushed forward with momentum in hand, winning the second set 25-22. Sets three went back and forth, but B-B-E was able to finish first, winning 25-22. The last set of the match Was dif- ficult. The Cubs felt the effects of playing a five-set match the pre- vious night and struggled to keep up with B-B-E's offense. The Cubs were defeated 14-25 in the last set and lost the match 1-3 to finish the 2011 season. Statistical high- lights included Rachel Arnold's four kills, 23 set assists, and seven digs; Breane Meierhofer's seven kills, two blocks, and eight digs; Laura Frank's seven kills; Steph Konz's seven kills and six blocks; and Emily Donnay's six blocks. Although the Cubs finished under 500 with a 13-14 record, much of their competition this season was against 2A and 3A schools.
