Eagle Valley ended their regular season with a doubleheader sweep of Browerville last Thursday in Clarissa. The Rebels scored four runs in the last inning to erase a three-run Tigers lead and pull out the first game of the doubleheader 7-6. In that comeback victory, Judy Salcido singled and Lisa Schauer walked. After one out Sara Johnson singled to score one run, Peggy Henrich and Kerry Sieling each singled to score a run. Christy Hinzmann walked to load the bases and Jill Pontius hit a hard ground ball to third which was stopped. The throw home was too late to get Henrich and the game was over.
On March 20, Jerry Sovich was given an award for outstanding operation, maintenance and management of the wastewater collection and treatment facilities for Clarissa during 1995. Pictured were Chuck Williams, MPCA Commissioner, Jerry Sovich and Laurie Martenson, assistant water quality division manager.
