He’ll be one of the key point pursuers for the ‘Cats as they go for a league title in what first-year head coach Todd Boddie terms as a “very competitive meet.”

from their programs.”

Lady Cougars start off big

The Lady Cougars (19-11-2), who now play Oberlin (a 6-0 winner over Logansport Tuesday) in a second round game either Thursday or Friday, probably had several more runs in their 15-hit arsenal.
“I just always like to get that first one out of the way,” Adams sized up afterwards. “Winning and getting that first one, it’s just big.
It’s nice to have it under our belt. Today, I really thought we had a great team effort.”

Buster gets bummer of a bump

When I got home on Friday and he didn’t immediately rush out to greet me, I thought nothing of it. As I have previously mentioned, he regularly spends a lot of time out and about in the neighborhood. For a while after being attacked by a neighbor’s dog, he stuck very close to the house, often not going outside at all.
But as that wound on his chest healed, he became bolder and increased his walking perimeter to basically anywhere in the subdivision that did not require him to go past the aforementioned dog’s house.

Album, band back on scene

“Two songs that are on the (new) album were recorded, but we decided not to put them on the first album. The other two are scratch tracks.
The music that’s with them isn’t meant to be kept; it was suppose to be re-recorded, but we forgot about it.”
Fredrickson said the band forgot about the tracks, and when they were discovered, the members decided to stick them on the new album.
“It’s kind of cool,” he said. “We figured that people who buy this would be interested in the scratch tracks.”
He added that the new songs seemed to fit in well with the record.
