I find myself feeling so much better and in control of things when I can complete a project I have been dreading off my list!

Glenwood Einspahr, Hildreth (1950) will be inducted into the Nebraska High School Sports Hall of Fame in August. A one-man track team, competing without a coach, Einspahr gave Hildreth a Class D co-championship by winning the 100- and 220-yard dashes and the long jump.
