Bryan Woodhall says ‘Eat to live’

“Eat to live, don’t live to eat,” said Bryan Woodhall, the 2014 winner of the Chronicle’s seventh annual Biggest Loser contest. The sentiment behind those words is what enabled Bryan to not only make it to the finish line in this year’s contest, but come out on top.

Bryan has dieted in the past, he said, but those were always fad diets. 

“You try something out, it doesn’t work, you try something else,” he said. But this time around it was different for him. He said he had to “do a life change and stop eating things that were bad for (him).” He stopped eating anything that had partially hydrogenated oils in it, first and foremost. Things like his coffee creamer and peanut butter were among the first things to go.

Baseball team drops first two games

The Custer baseball team traveled to Spearfish for a tournament this past weekend and played a double-header for its opening day. Their first test was against Billings, Mont., with the second game facing Sioux Falls Roosevelt. With some opening day miscues and limited experience on the field, the team lost both games, 13-1 and 12-0, respectively.

Against Billings, leading hitters included Matt Lepke, Joe Rush, Reed Ashmore and Logan Block.  Rush and Block added to their stats with stolen bases, with Block scoring the lone run in the bottom of the third on an error. Lepke tossed 63 pitches over two and half innings, with four runs against his efforts.  Lepke experienced an injury on the mound and was moved to shortstop at the top of the third.  Ashmore took over pitching and threw 31 pitches, allowing nine runs.
