BLOOMINGTON – The third time wasn’t the charm for the Fisher Bunnies in regional play against the Blue Ridge Knights Tuesday at the Sale Barn Fields.

BLOOMINGTON – Tri-Valley’s Peyton Roop was too much for the Panthers Friday at Illinois Wesleyan in a 28-0 LeRoy loss.

The battle of Rte. 150 is back in full force, as both LeRoy and Tri-Valley look to pad their conference records.
