LNB Girls Nail Tiebreaker To Take Win In Week One

Posted

No one was perfect in week one of the Country Financial Prep Pick 'Em Contest, but the crew at the Litchfield National Bank drive-up hit the tie breaker right on the nose to take the win in week one.

The LNB Girls were one of eight entries to get five games correct, with the Hillsboro/Southwestern game tripping up all but one of the 17 prognosticators. For their win, the LNB Girls will receive a limited edition Journal-News winter hat and an extra point in the overall standings.

Each week, Journal-News readers pick the five South Central Conference games, plus the Nokomis game. Picks can be turned in at the Journal-News office in Hillsboro by 5 p.m. on Friday or can be emailed before kickoff to JNsports@consolidated.net.
