Nine Tornadoes traveled to Hays last week with hopes of returning to Eureka with hardware, and one Tornado did just that. Eureka’s Brennan Lowe (152-pounds) went 3-1 at the tournament, to be named the 3-2-1A State Runner-Up in the 152-pound weight class. Lowe claimed two pins and one decision, before falling 3-6 in the championship round. Lowe finished his junior year with a 43-3 record. This was Lowe’s third state appearance and his second state medal. Last year, Lowe claimed the title in the 138-pound weight class.
Forty-two residents of Reece and the surrounding communities came together and signed a petition, requesting that the county use chip and seal materials to repair Reece Road. The petition states: “We, the undersigned, request the chip seal repair of the Reece Road south of Highway 54. The road is rough and during the rain is extremely muddy which makes it hard on vehicles. Recently some of the material from the road ditch has been pulled up on the road creating a rough, potholed surface. Many vehicles use this road including school buses, ranchers with their feed trucks and trailers, semis hauling cattle or heavy equipment and personal vehicles.” Commissioner Robert Joe Morgan stated that, in addition to repairs to Reece Road, work needed to be done to divert water flow to the box located at 136th Street. The Road and Bridge Department will contract County Contracted Engineer Michael Maris to discuss repair options. Repairs to the Reece Road continue to be a priority. The Road and Bridge Department is currently working to develop a lasting solution to the afore mentioned roadways.
