    In the match against Mercer County the Knights came out on top 180 to 199.  Individual scores for the Knights were Logan Medley and Mason Gadberry each with a 44, Evan Dye with a 45, and Casey Lee with a 47.
    "It wasn't pretty golf on either side," Head Coach Chad Spalding said. "Mason had a good round, just had one bad hole."

  • Perfect weather kicks off hunting seasons

    The last couple of weekends have been the perfect kickoff to hunting seasons. This was courtesy of the first dove season, which opened Sept. 1. Couldn't write about it before due to my last early deadline!
    I attended the Peterson shoot on opening day. Course there were numerous shoots, mostly by invitation only! But, the invitation process was a pretty loose deal. You hear about a shoot from somebody who was "invited" maybe twice removed. Then they'd say "come on out," so thus you were invited!

  • A multi-million dollar opportunity
