It was a clash of School District rivals on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at the Tartan tennis courts. In the end, the North High Polars were on top, 5-2, to gain their first Metro East Conference win of the girls tennis season.
In a tight game between rivals, the Hill-Murray boys soccer team scored twice and that was all it needed for a 2-1 win over Tartan Tuesday, Sept 15.
The victory moved the Pioneers to 3-1-1 overall and to 1-1 in the Metro East Conference. The loss dropped the Titans to 3-4, 1-1.
Rain that didn't let up made for a soggy Homecoming for the Hill-Murray players, students and alumni Friday, Sept. 18.
And the outcome of the game — a 9-0 loss to rival North High — certainly didn't improve matters for the Pioneers as they plowed their way through the mud for four quarters.
150 years is a long time.
The "committee" has been meeting and plans are well underway for a big celebration to commemorate the 150th year of the founding of the Hamm's Brewing Company.
It was back in 1865 that founder Theodore Hamm began producing beer, utilizing water from Phalen Creek, which flowed through his brewery property at Minnehaha and Payne avenues.
