The fourth time was the charm for Bangor baseball under Todd Grant in the sectional final. The Cardinals' 9-3 win over Pecatonica in this year's Division 4 sectional finals was a welcome relief for a program that couldn't quite seem to clear that final hurdle to reach state. In fact, it has been an issue that's plagued the Scenic Bluffs Conference in general for the past quarter century.

And, as a kid, I thought having your birthday on Christmas was better than winning the lottery.
