  • COLLEGE SPORTS: Several locals earn MSC academic honors

    The Mid-South Conference released its Academic All-Conference football team Wednesday, and a pair of players from area high schools made the mark. That follows the recent announcement of the MSC’s cross country academic awards, which saw one local runner make the squad.

    Chase Simpson, senior long-snapper at Lindsey Wilson, helped his team to an 8-3 mark on the season and a third-place finish in the rugged Mid-South Conference Eastern Division. The top-15 Blue Raiders were not among the three MSC teams selected for the national championship tournament.

    Stone tore down the nets with 279 kills for a season attack average of .322. Defensively, Stone gathered 83 blocks and 41 digs for the Patriots.

  • COLLEGE PROFILE: Grades come first for Stone

    It’s not often that we hear about collegiate student–athletes who actually put their status as a student ahead of that as an athlete.

    It’s not that her grades were low. Stone sets high standards for herself both in the classroom and on the court.
