  • Soccer is becoming one of my top sports

    I got to experience for the first time in my life, a Major League Soccer game Sept. 10, when I saw the Columbus Crew face Toronto FC.

    Soccer used to not be my thing to watch and I used to find it boring.

    Now I almost can’t get enough of it and that is thanks to my fiance, Jessica Purnell.

    On top of seeing the Crew play, I also witnessed four soccer games in three days, starting with Grant County playing Pendleton County.

    “I do better in heat so it helped me out a lot,” Braves senior Tyler Edmondson said.

    Edmondson ran a personal best 17:17 in route to a 19th place finish individually.

    “Out of 200 runners, to finish in the top 20, it felt really good to get a medal,” he said. “I set a personal record by about nine seconds.”
