    Hunter recently competed in the 2017 Bass Pro Shops Northern Open held at Oneida Lake in Syracuse, N.Y. from June 29 – July 1, finishing in 91st place out of 198 fishermen.

    The competition at the event was so fierce, Hunter’s final weigh-in of 28.5 pounds landed him just three pounds outside of the top-40 of finishers.

  • The battle back

    While most people take simple things like counting the change in their pocket or reading the time on a clock for granted, Webb Bates does not.

    Bates, a rising junior for both the Collins football team and the Titans’ swimming program recently fully recovered from a car accident in November of 2016 that left him with several physical injuries and without all of his mental faculties for weeks.

    The placekicker says that it took four to five months of both physical and neurological rehabilitation to get back 100 percent healthy.

    Of course, Richmond had a final three-run rally of its own before the game was called due to darkness in the sixth.

    The Shelbyville Stingrays swim team continued its march to a third consecutive Summer Fun League title with a domination of Persimmon Ridge’s swim club on Monday night.

    The event saw Shelby use its numbers to blowout its opponent, 379-146.

    “This was our last regular season home meet, and I thought we raced well,” Stingrays coach Tom Coons said. “I still believe we can be more diligent with our starts and turns, but we’ll work on that when we face Cooper Farms on Thursday.”
