Friday night the Lady Trojans picked up their first win on the road against CampbelI-Tintah-Fairmount with a final score of 35-33. The team played without starting guard Emily Sammon who had her appendix removed Thursday evening and with- out three other players who were bat- tling flu and cold-like symptoms. .The Trojans led by a slim margin most of the game but couldn't pull away. C-T-F played a 2-3 zone, which clogged things up for the Trojans down low in the post area, giving the Ortonville cagers a different look from Dawson-Boyd. The Trojans found good opportuni- ties from the baseline and wing areas throughout the game, but the shots weren't falling. "We found this to be true from the foul line as well," says Coach Hoernemann. "We had an opportunity to pull away if we had hit some of those free throws during the fourth quarter, but they just wouldn't fall." C-T-F racked up enough fourth- quarter fouls to put the Trojans on the free-throw line early, but the girls struggled with their shots, ending up 2-14 in the fourth quarter and 12-28 overall. Again, the Lady Trojans found themselves in foul trouble. Jenna Longhenry ended up with five and Stacy Wiegman played with four. Heidi Franzky provided a spark off the bench playing aggressive defense and scoring five points. Amy Smith led scoring with nine, Jenna Longhenry had eight, Stacy Wiegman had seven, Heidi Franzky earned five, Stephanie Schuelke came away with four, and Rebecca Hillman had two, in addition to pulling down key rebounds throughout the game. This week the Lady Trojans host Minneota on Monday and Hancock on Thursday. Says Coach Hoernemann, "We hope everybody will be healthy and ready to play hard." w telemarketing firm hire !00,30 employees ..... of County Review move just in time to boost spirits and economic opti- c., Synergy Solutions has its intention to open a call | the now vacant third floor of Auto Insurance Building.

Nelson stated that Conklin learned of the opportunity to open a call cen- ter in Milbank from the Governor's Office of Economic Development. Conklin was familiar with Milbank because he had been a manager of ProMark One, one of the telemarket- ing firms that operated a call center in the State Auto Building after the orig- inal tenant, Telnet, sold out. According to Nelson, Conklin was impressed with the call center-and the employees at that time, and believes Milbank is a good location for a future Synergy Solutions site.
