Victim Services Information Fair:
A victim services information fair was held this morning at North Central College’s Wentz Concert Hall. A number of organizations came out to raise awareness about crime victims’ rights and resources. There were also presentations addressing domestic violence and services for survivors of crime. The event was put on by the Naperville Police Department along with the Chicago Field Office of the FBI, in recognition of Crime Victims’ Rights Week.
203 Top District:
District 203 has been named as the top school district in Illinois. That’s according to a report by Backgroundchecks.org, which evaluated 9,577 districts to get their results. The online portal used math and reading test scores, funding, dropout rates and poverty rates in compiling their list. District 204 also got high marks, coming in at number seven.
Neuqua vs. Central Softball:
With the weather warming up enough to head outdoors, softball hit the field again after nearly a week of cancellations. Neuqua Valley travelled to Naperville Central, and the Wildcats offense showed no signs of rust with back-to-back home runs in the first inning. The RedHawks turned a 3-0 deficit into a 9-5 lead as their offense clicked into gear in the middle innings. But Neuqua rallied for five runs in the 5th and hung on for the 11 to 9 win to start the conference season.
Neuqua vs. Waubonsie Soccer:
Neuqua Valley girls soccer hosted Crosstown rival Waubonsie Valley yesterday afternoon. The Warriors struck first, taking a 1 to nothing lead into halftime. The host Wildcats evened the score in the 2nd half, which sent the game into overtime. In the 2nd OT, Leah Senese scored the golden goal to win the game for Neuqua, the second game-winning goal for Senese in the last week.
