The Pirate Pride Project is now “officially” underway in Hannibal. A Kickoff gathering was held a Noon today at Porter Stadium on the HHS campus to introduce potential donors and boosters to the fund-raising effort and to the improvements that are on the planning board to help enhance the educational experience for Hannibal’s student-athletes.
Hannibal Public School District Superintendent Susan Johnson was on hand to greet all of today’s special guests and offer insight on the plans on tap to improve Porter Stadium and the Veterans Sports Complex as well.
Quincy High’s Cross Country and Track & Field Head Coach Matt McClelland may still be floating on “Cloud Nine” today after accepting the new post of Athletic Director yesterday in “The Gem City.”
After serving as head coach of some of the top runners in the state the past 8 years, McClelland will certainly miss the daily interaction with student-athletes, but he’s ready to take on new challenges.
The proud Southern Illinois University graduate took time out on Wednesday at Upper Moorman Park to share his vision on what he plans to develop once he takes over his new position in August.
Local Tri-State golfers from the prep ranks were in action earlier today on the fairways as the Clarence Cannon Conference Golf Tournament. We’ll fill you in on how Palmyra, Highland, Brookfield, and Monroe City golf teams made out on the greens.
