  • Baseball: Baker selected for...

    The Springfield Sun

    This week, Beau Baker will have the chance to participate in something that not many 10-year-olds can claim to have done: play for a national all-star team.
    This opportunity came about for Beau while playing in the Baseball Youth National Showcase in Westfield, Indiana, recently as part of his travel team, the Danville-based Morse Mustangs.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights drop two...

    The Marion County Knights warmed up for the 2016 season with two scrimmages on Aug. 7, but dropped both of them.
    The Knights first played the Madison Central Indians and lost 6-2. Alan Guzman and Colby Hood each had one goal in the match as the Knights fell behind 5-0 by halftime.
    "To be honest, we were just asleep," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said. "We did not respond well at all and were not prepared. However, eventually, we came out of it after halftime and played much better in the second half."

    By Dennis George

    It’s one of the great golf commercials of all time.
    A young man is playing by himself late one evening and tees his ball up on a par-3 hole. He crisply hits an iron shot onto the green, and thinks it goes into the hole.
    He straps his clubs onto his shoulder and runs towards the green. As he approaches it, he anxiously looks for his ball and slowly walks towards the cup. He picks his ball out of the hole, and looks around, seeing no one.

  • Rio 2016

    The 2016 Summer Olympics officially got underway in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 5, and will continue until Aug. 21. For 16 days, more than 11,000 athletes will represent their country in 306 events, and will look to claim gold in their respective events. As of Sunday evening, Australia had received the most gold medals with three but the U.S. was tied with a host of other countries with seven total metals (these figures, of course, will change). Kosovo also made a little history of its own by winning its first-ever medal in any Olympic Games (and for good measure, it was gold).
