HASTINGS – The 42nd annual Sertoma Eight-Man Classic was held Saturday at Lloyd Wilson Field on the campus of Hastings College.

The York News-Times’ coverage area was well represented at the game, as there were three players competing for the East, including Exeter-Milligan/Friend’s Edwen Baptista, Cross County’s Grant Hollinger and Heartland’s Peyton Ott.

York’s head football coach, Glen Snodgrass, was also in attendance as he is a member of the Eight-Man Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019 that was inducted at halftime.

The West won the game 34-22 over the East. Baptista, who was the East offensive most valuable player, rushed for a team-high 60 yards on 19 carries and had a 5-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. The running back was also the East’s leading receiver with two catches for 18 yards.
