2 BOARD VOTES TO NOT REHIRE LADY COMETS COACH
Following their closed session Tuesday night, the Unit
2 School Board voted to not rehire Gina Allen as the
Lady Comets varsity basketball coach. Allen had coached

GMC Stadium. Danny Leitschuh got the win and Jason Mollett
the save. Cody Kircher and Josh Fohne had RBI doubles
and Mollett had an RBI single. The Comets are now 11-4
on the season and 3-0 in conference play.

Aaron Kendall had 4 hits, scored 3 runs, and drove-in
4. James Lynch got the win as he struck out 7.
The Lady Aces topped Odin 11-1 behind a no-hitter by
Brittany Crandall. This was Crandall's third no-hitter
of the season. Kelli Bloemker, Bailie Goodin, Rachel
Brewer, and Lyndsay Dothager each had RBIs.
On Tuesday, the Lady Comets finished 3rd at Pana. Taking
first place for Greenville were Amy Bleisch in the Discus,
Lindsey Holden in the 200 and 400, and Dani Huber tied
for first in the Triple Jump.
