May 13, 2016
By

The other night I was watching a commercial on TV.  A young girl dressed in her softball uniform was just walking on to the ball diamond.  Oh, how this brings back memories for any of us who ever played the sport of baseball or softball.  I know young boys usually envision that they are...

Where Are The Young People?

May 12, 2016
By

I recently attended the State Board for Track & Field held in Indianapolis.  There were 22 coaches from throughout the state who attended.  Six of the 22, including myself, are retired from active coaching.  Another 10 of these coaches are over 50 years old.  As you can see, there are not a lot of...

Derby Wrap-Up

May 11, 2016
By

Normally at the Kentucky Derby you get the exception rather than the rule.  This has not been the case for the past 3 derbys.   This year the top 4 horses were the actual top 4 picks by the bettors when the race started.  Nyquist, at 2-1 odds was the winner.  This undefeated 3-year...

May 10, 2016
By

County Track Meet

May 5, 2016
By

Weather permitting, today will be the Ripley County Track Meet.  The event is held at Batesville each year because they have an 8-lane track.  This allows all races to be finals–no trial events need to be held.  I am not sure when the County Track Meet started.  I know it has been held since...
