Cardinals score late, down Indians
By CLAUDE VINSON
Two of Marshall County’s football teams met in a spring contest Tuesday, May 27, at Byhalia’s gridiron. To add to the uniqueness of the tilt was the fact that the teams, the Indians and the Potts Camp Cardinals, were being led by brand new head coaches.
Kendrick Smith led the Indians in this battle and Matt Gehrke led the Cardinals.
Both teams appeared fired up as the Cardinals went over the ball first. An aggressive Byhalia defense stuffed the offense both times and the second was fumbled and covered by the Indians at the 22.

Behind The Scoreboard
Playoffs best ever
It was pointed out in this column a few weeks ago that conference finals were being played among “one’s” and “two’s.” It has been clearly evident that these were, indubitably, the best representatives – not to say that there haven’t been some occasions for temporary disappointments. However, the overall sentiment prevails that these playoff series have been the best ever. I am sure that the point will be argued.

Statesmen finish 18th at national golf championship
For the first time since 2005, the Delta State University men’s golf team took a trip to the NCAA Division II national championship. In 2014, the Statesmen traveled to Allendale, Mich., to play at The Meadows golf course on the campus of Grand Valley State University.
Delta had to fight back from a disappointing first round and though the second or third round wasn’t enough to vault the Statesmen into the top eight teams that made match play, the squad gave a valiant effort and competed with the best teams in the United States, on a national stage.
