Today [last Thursday], the Colby Hornets defeated the St. Mary’s Springs Ledgers 22 - 7 to win the State Football Title for Division 6. I commend Head Coach Jim Hagen and the team on an exemplary season resulting in a Championship Title, Colby’s first since the 2011 Championship.
The Hornets were led by two rushing touchdowns from Quarterback Brent Jeske. The defense played exceptionally well, only allowing a single touchdown, and returning a fumble to extend their lead. Finally, the defense capped off the win with a safety in the fourth quarter.
“My congratulations to the Colby Hornets on their State Championship Title” said Representative Donna Rozar (R-Marshfield). “I am proud of the way this team performed throughout the season. It is great to see a State Football Championship come back to Colby.”
