Bees Lead as Game Suspended

The Burlington Bees were leading the Beloit Snappers 3-2 yesterday(Sun) afternoon at Community Field when the storm hit.   After a half-hour delay, the umpires declared the game “suspended,” and the teams will finish it June 8th, when the Snappers return to Burlington.   The Bees…now 13-8…go on the road to face Wisconsin four more times, before heading to suburban Chicago to face the Kane County Cougars.   You can hear tonight’s(Mon) game on KBUR. Air-time is 6:15 with Michael Broskoski’s pre-game show.


At the Drake Relays, West Burlington-Notre Dame’s Jeff Giannettino went an even 7-feet to win the boys high jump title for the second straight year. His teammate…sophomore Xavior Williams, also from Notre Dame, placed third with a jump of 6-8. But the members of the Mt. Pleasant girls shuttle hurdle relay team had a rough day Saturday, as they won in record time…or so they thought…but were then told they had been disqualified because one of their runners had left early.  




On the local sports calendar today are numerous games, matches and meets, including boys baseball…girls softball…golf…soccer…track & field…and tennis.
