  • A Life Without Lack

    David Cole|Sep 14, 2023

    When you read the title of this article, what do you think? I believe that most of us would think that this article is going to talk about financial stability or material wealth and how much money we have in the bank. This is how society has taught us to think and measure our lives beside our neighbors to see how successful we are. Charles Haddon Spurgeon puts it this way, “We have all things and abound; not because I have a good store of money in the bank, not because I have skill and wit with which to win my bread, but because the Lord is my...

    Gary Honodel|Sep 14, 2023

    On a beautiful early Autumn evening - perfect for football - at the Saratoga High School Stadium, the Panthers opened their season against Moorcroft High School. The Panthers kicked off and after forcing a punt by the Wolves took over on offense at their own 35. Then, on the very first offensive play of the 2023 season, sophomore quarterback Burris Berger hit Snowdon Williams with a nice pass and the freshman running back took it to the end zone for a 65 year touchdown. Saratoga punched in the...

  • Tigers pounce on Pronghorns

    Joshua Wood|Sep 14, 2023

    To say the Encampment Tigers dominated the gridiron in their first home game of the season would be an understatement. Hosting the Farson-Eden Pronghorns on September 9, Encampment tore into the Pronghorns with a 63-6 victory. Just a few seasons before, it was the Pronghorns who had cut short Encampent’s path to the State Championship during their first conference season with their new six-man program. As this season begins, it would seem the Tigers are serious about returning to War Memorial S...
