Former Hononegah Indians student-athlete Josh Keener is now leading the  softball program at Black Hawk College in Moline, IL. The Talons lost to Rock Valley College recently, falling 5-3 in postseason play.

Hononegah alumni Briella Sendele was a part of the winning Rock Valley College softball team. On the season the freshmen utility player for RVC played in 38 games, batting 284 while knocking in 24 runs and hitting 2 homeruns for the 29-13 Golden Eagles.

With summertime right around the corner, it’s a good time to remind everyone about the Hononegah sport camps.
