Lady Railers take 1st place in Lincoln,
4th place in state

By Rick Hobler

[NOV. 13, 2000]  Their opponents may have been taller and the schools they came from bigger, but no team played with bigger hearts and more class at Saturday’s State Class AA Volleyball State Tournament than the LCHS Lady Railers. And when it was all over, the virtually unknown and mostly unheralded Lady Railers proudly carried the fourth-place trophy off the floor of Redbird Arena and shared it with their fans.

Illini bowl plans postponed

Introduction by Jeff Mayfield

[NOV. 13, 2000]  Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, the sharks — I mean the Buckeyes — used up all the magic left over in the genie's bottle and pulled out a 24-21 escape over the courageous Illini. This week we are introducing to our loyal LDN readers a new face in our lineup, Mr. Greg Taylor. Greg has filled in when Tom Seggelke is on assignment elsewhere. Greg is originally from Champaign and has keen insights into both the football and the basketball programs at Illinois. I know that you will welcome Greg with traditional LDN flare!
