A wiffleball tournament/home run derby benefit for 14-year-old Zach Netten is planned this weekend.
Woodbury resident Leah Schulte said her family has good insurance. They didn’t need any help. Her fellow youth baseball parents didn’t listen. This weekend, hundreds of people will come together for a benefit for her son, Zach Netten, who was diagnosed at the outset of the school year with Hodgkin lymphoma. “They insisted (on a benefit),” Schulte said. “We’re all kind of like family.” Zach, 14, had a persistent cough going back to last summer.

A Raptor win increases the team’s chances of their first-ever Suburban East Conference football championship.
If East Ridge can keep their close-game magic going tonight at home against Stillwater, the Raptors could have two firsts this season. They will have beaten Stillwater for their first time in school history. The Ponies beat the Raptors 33-6 in their only meeting last year. In addition, a Raptor win increases the team’s chances of their first-ever Suburban East Conference football championship. The Raptors finished second in 2010 when they went 7-3 overall.
