Spartans fall to T-town

If there is one thing that can be said about the 2015-16 edition of the St. Joseph-Ogden Spartans, they have played a very challenging schedule.

Only 10 apply for football coaching position

Principal Gary Page said that while the number seems low it is what the district expected.

“The reason is most likely due to the fact that we have no foreseeable teaching openings to go with the position,” he said.
