CornBelters lead twice, it wasn't enough

The long ball was in play several time for the CornBelters v the Crushers on Saturday night 7-26-2014, but in the end the 'belters needed to belt 3 more for the win.  Crushers 8, CornBelters 6 at the last out.

Coverage from the 1st half of the season will be coming in the August edition of Best Look Magazine.  Expect it to be available on the 15th.

2015 NFL possible draftees that played in Bloomington Normal

Normally (no pun intended) natives and transplants alike in Bloomington Normal think that not much interesting at all happens here.  I'm in that group some of the time, but truth is I'm usually just not looking hard enough.  When I heard that IWU product John Worley made the top 20 on the NFL draft prospect list for linebackers I decided it was time to check out the whole list.  I usually do it every year, but had just been putting it off.  I was surprised when I found what seemed like a pretty long list.  Sifting through the list by university name of games I covered, I found only one or two of them that didn't have a name on the list.  I think the most was 9.

So, who played in Bloomington - Normal that may get drafted?  I didn't keep the whole list, but you can see the 21 that I have images of in the slideshow below.

Girls IBCA All Stars

On Saturday afternoon of June 21st, the best of the graduated senior high school girls basketball players met up and divided up as the North and the South to play one last high school game.  Many of the girls have played with or against each other most of their lives, first on travel teams and then on to organized school sports.  The action isn't always polished as they don't get to practice much together, but the camaraderie and fun is always evident with all the smiles both on and off the court.

Some of these ladies will go on with their sports careers in the collegiate arenas, others will just get on with life.  Best wishes to all of them no matter the path they take.

This Saturday afternoon, the boys will arrive at the Shirk Center in Bloomington and take part in their game.

Look for coverage in the August edition of Best Look Magazine.
