Byers wraps up spring drills
By BARRY BURLESON
James Kimbrough continues to build a football program at H.W. Byers. Starting in August, the construction will move to a new level.
The Lions will enter district competition as a member of Region 1-1A. Football was renewed at the school just three years ago at the junior high level and Byers played an independent varsity slate last year.
Alexander shines at Southwest
By BARRY BURLESON
Lauren Alexander left an impressive mark on the Southwest Tennessee Community College softball program.
The 2009 graduate of Marshall Academy finished her two-year stint at Southwest by becoming the all-time hit leader at the junior college. She had 54 hits as a freshman and 63 as a sophomore.
Behind The Scoreboard
There will be a bit of déjà vu in the NBA championship series this season. About five years ago the stage was set in the same way. The Miami Heat would face the Dallas Mavericks in the showdown seven.
Dallas faced down a very brash and tough, talented opponent in the Oklahoma City Thunder. Dallas had a clockbuster (121-112) win in game one and the Thunder returned the favor in game two with a clockbuster (106-100) of their own, but the home court advantage favored the Mavericks too well. The death knell sounded for the Thunder in game four on Monday when the Mavs wiped away a 15-point deficit, forced the fifth frame and won in overtime.
MA hosts camp June 13-15
Marshall Academy will host a football camp June 13-16 for second through seventh graders.
