    The Fillies will be led by returning number one player, junior Sarah Holland.  Holland was very competitive in most meets last year and worked very hard this off season to improve her game.

  • Local sports and dollars: Should...

    Lately in our fair city and county, there has been much discussion as to the spending of money for recreation. Not only local youth league spending by the Recreation Department, but by the high school has come into question.  
    Most of the high-school spending questions is directed at what the school provides, what do the parents or youth provide and what do the boosters still need to supply.
    The answer to ‘how much does the school supply?’ varies, but for the most part other than facilities the school doesn’t supply all that much.
