    Cliff Watson wasn't overly enthused about hunting during the second portion of the Illinois firearms deer season. He had hunted on private property in eastern Adams County during the three-day November portion and never saw a deer until he was driving back to Quincy late that Sunday afternoon. "It was just standing in the field eating," Watson said. "It picked its head up and just stared at me. It didn't have a care in the world. That was aggravating. I told myself then I was done."

    The conditions were anything but ideal for the Quincy University men's soccer team. Rain fell steadily throughout Thursday's NCAA Division II national semifinal game against Lynn University, and temperatures hovered around 35 degrees. Couple that with the already fast surface at Owsley B. Frazier Stadium, and the Hawks' patient game of possession was negated. "The field kind of brought us out of our style of play," Quincy senior defender Chris Garavaglia said.
