By Jeff Steers JTV Sports Only on Friday the 13th can two high school football teams each claim to play home games on the same night. It happened in the rivalry contest between Western and Northwest high schools on Friday night. Just seconds in to the second half an electrical issue caused the power to go out a Western’s football field. Following 25 minutes of darkness, the two sides agreed to move the game to Northwest’s new turf field for the remainder of the second half. Western won the game 43-6, but Mountie fans enjoyed a glimpse of the redone stadium with a turf field, new lighting, and other amenities. The official opening for the varsity football team at NW is scheduled for Friday against Lumen Christi Catholic High School. Western improves to 2-1 on the season, 1-1 in the Interstate-8 Conference, while the Mounties are 1-2 overall, 1-2 in the conference. The sharp passing attack of Tyler Pape in the first half set the tone of the Panthers. Pape was 13-for-16 for more than 200 yards and…

Sandoval Wins D-2 Race at Springport

Grass Lake High School cross country runner Kailee Sandoval earned first place in the Division 2 race at the Springport Invitational on Wednesday.  Photo by Jeff Steers, JTV Sports. By Jeff Steers JTV Sports While most runners put an emphasis on the number of miles ran over the summer, Grass Lake High School cross country runner Kailee Sandoval spent time in the weight room. And it has paid off for the junior. Sandoval won the girls’ Division 2 race at the Springport Invitational Wednesday at Springport High School. She ran the 5,000-meter course in just under 20 minutes. She wasn’t the only winner at the annual invitational that attracts a number of Jackson County schools. Hanover-Horton easily won the Division 1 boys’ race with 24 points and Concord won the boys’ Division 3 race with 34 points. Sandoval suffered a hamstring injury during the track and field season earlier in the year. She was only able to compete in three track meets last spring. “In the back of my mind, the injury has been motivation for me,” Sandoval said. “The injury has taught me to run every race like it is your last.” Sandoval said she used weight training and…

By Jeff Steers JTV Sports Perhaps aptly named, Lexus Bargesser of Grass Lake High School was in pursuit of perfection on Saturday at the Michigan High School Athletic Association Division 3 track and field championships at Jenison High School. The freshman stole the show winning the 100 and 200-meter dash events on a stormy Saturday near Grand Rapids. The state meet was delayed at least three times for thunder and lightning in the area. Bargesser was a bolt of lightning in winning the 100 in 12.56 seconds – a personal best – and the 200 with a time of 25.43 – also her best time ever. She was one of a number of Jackson County athletes who earned medals and all-state honors finishing in the top eight in his/her events. Bargesser was seeded third heading into the 100 final, but got out of blocks quickly and held off fellow Cascades Conference runner Jayden Humphrey of Manchester at the end. “Jayden and I have gone back and…
