Storm water department a goner

    The City of Decatur's storm department is no longer with us, having been officially abolished by city council at its meeting on Tuesday night.

DeKalb clubs Bellmont for 11 runs, 18 hits in win

May 8, 2013

    DeKalb brought their shovels with them on Wednesday night as the offense buried the Squaws for 18 hits and 11 runs in an NHC clash at the Teepee, 11-1.
    In all, 44 batters came to the plate against Bellmont. The Lady Barons started hot right from the start as Maddy Fifer belted a single to centerfield that set the tone.
    The Barons were hitting the ball hard all over the diamond against the Squaws and the game would have gotten even further out of hand had DeKalb not stranded so many runners on base (12).
