Evanston math teacher hits new record on the golf course

Making a hole in one is a feat most amateur golfers can only dream of accomplishing. As it turns out, hitting a small, white ball into a hole the size of your fist is no easy task. Some of the greatest golfers in the world will never make an ace in their lifetime. Yet during one golf season, Evanston resident and math teacher Michelle Biddulph can claim making not one but two hole-in-one shots. As a statistics teacher at the high school, Biddulph was interested in the odds of a hole-in-one.

Red Devils ‘Wrecking Crew’ years in the making

Usually, where you find one, you’ll find ‘em all. You’ll hear that from a coach or two, when they describe the bond that exists — on the field, and off — between the Evanston Red Devils’ senior core of linebackers: Kai Barker, Cohen Morrow, Brady Roberts and Cole Robinette. If one makes a play, the other three are there, slapping him on the back, hyping him up.

Led by a 191-yard, 2-touchdown performance on the ground by running back Brady Roberts — as well as an opportunistic defense that forced three turnovers on the night — the Red Devils avoided the need for a tie-breaker to decide the fourth seed out of the 3A West, claiming the spot outright.

Red Devils 2-2 with 40-6 win over Lander

The novelist Thomas Wolf once wrote “You Can’t Go Home Again,” meaning a place of your past will never be the same when you return. That was indeed the case for former Evanston High School football coach Jim Burton. Now the head coach of the Lander Tigers, Burton returned to Kay Fackrell Stadium Friday night to face a Red Devils team that bares little resemblance to the team he coached just a year ago; many of the faces are the same, but the culture has changed under new head coach Steve Moore and his staff. Evanston carried the momentum of last week’s win over Riverton into Friday’s clash with Burton’s new team, routing the Tigers 40-6 to improve to 2-2 on the season.
