Phillips Week Eight Winner Of Country Financial Prep Pick 'Em

Posted

Long-time player Keith Phillips was 6-0 and was the closest on the tie-breaker to earn the victory in week eight of the Country Financial Prep Pick 'Em contest.

Phillips, Ed Holcomb and Harold Douglas all went 6-0, picking both the Vandalia/Pana and Nokomis/EAWR games correctly, which tripped up a fair share of the entrants. Phillips' guess on the total points for the Hillsboro/Litchfield game (76 points) was the highest of the three, earning him his first win of the year.

For his win, Phillips 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.
