Study suggests later school start time good for teens, but implementation unlikely

Updated:

    The bigger the challenge, the bigger the reward. The Quincy Notre Dame boys soccer team is about to find out if that's true. A postseason run in which the Raiders didn't allow a goal ended in the Class 1A super-sectionals with a penalty-kick shootout loss. Now they have been bumped up to Class 2A, which means they will face schools with enrollments three or four times as large. "I don't see that as a huge factor," senior midfielder Cooper Reis said.

    Quincy Notre Dame volleyball coach Rich Meyer says he isn't fretting about losing Kristen Gengenbacher, who is playing at nationally-ranked University of San Diego, and Cassidy Foley, The Herald-Whig's Player of the Year last season. It means he gets to experiment with new lineups until he finds the right one. "It gives us an advantage because no one really knows about us this year," Meyer said. "Usually we have a pretty set team. This year, nobody knows."
