    The original plan was to have the boys and girl’s soccer teams celebrate senior night on separate nights, but Mother Nature had other plans.

  • Braves look to rebound against Scott

    The Braves’ 74-26 loss Sept. 30 does not tell the whole story, says coach David Arvin.

    Arvin said at half time, he challenged the Braves to never give up and to play for pride.

    “We might not be able to come away with a win, but people wouldn’t be able to say the boys gave up that night,” he said.

  • Bullseye: My first try at a shooting range

    I have never been one to play with toy guns or even shoot a real gun.
    That was until I went to my friend, Kyle Swadener’s bachelor party on Sept. 24.
    The original plan was for us to go shoot paintballs, but just a week before the party, I found out we were going to a shooting range.
    I was a little nervous about shooting a gun, because that is not my kind of thing. I had never held a real gun until I was in front of the shooting target that day.
