The Burlington Bees had the lead three times during yesterday’s game in Kane County, but the Cougars rallied each time and closed out the 8th inning with a 5-run exclamation point.
The final score was 7-3. The Bees are back home tonight to start a 3-game series with Cedar Rapids…and you can hear all the action on KBUR.
***The Des Moines County Humane Society will also hold a memorial tonight at Community Field for former Hawk Eye sportswriter Susan Denk, who died Monday of a heart attack. The team will have a moment of silence for Denk before tonight’s game as well.
And it’s now official — The Southeastern Community College volleyball program has been suspended for the 2014-2015 season because they are still without a head coach. The college has conducted a number of interviews but have not found the right fit. According to an SCC press release, Scc’s Women Athletic Director Melissa Flores said that since they haven’t had a coach since Februrary, the Blackhawks have basically missed out on an entire recruiting season. College officials hope to have a new coach by December.
