A Hermann sweep

Hermann High School basketball fans erupt in celebration Friday after a last-second tip-in by Bearcat junior Rhet Scheidegger gave the visitors a 38-36 victory over the host Dutchmen to spoil Owensville’s “Back to the Future” homecoming. Hermann’s Lady Bearcats defeated the host Dutchgirls in the first game of the varsity doubleheader. Hermann senior Jessica Rood (right) was named as the recipient of the $10,000 Gasconade County Math and Science Scholarship awarded by county residents Martha and Gerald Ebker. Rood, pictured catching her breath with OHS Principal Cindy Hawkins following the announcement, was one of 20 students between the two high schools to participate in a qualifying test at Missouri S&T in Rolla.
