    The ball just continued bouncing the right way, again and again.

    Next week, Beau Baker will have the chance to participate in something that not many 10-year-olds can claim to have done: play for a national all-star team.

    The Lebanon Country Club bested Springfield’s Lincoln Homestead Country Club in the 18th annual President’s Cup this past weekend, avenging last year’s defeat.

  • Taking Aim

    Fighting through the searing summer heat and humidity, one Washington County girl has been making a name for herself in a male-dominated sport – trap shooting.

    Hannah Simpson, 17, begins her practice by putting on a vest and stuffing its pockets with boxes of shotgun shells. She casually puts on her ear and eye protection – specially designed to help see the target for the day’s weather – and grabs her gun, a Beretta 692 Xtrap.

    Marion County, who would go on to lose to Russell County in the championship game, jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back, ending the game after the fourth inning due to the 10-run rule.
