    Lady Cougars take 3rd in shortened tourney

    The South Central softball team won two of three games in a rain-shortened tournament at Robinson last Saturday.

    The Lady Cougars then won a coin toss to take third place.

    South Central had advanced to the third-place game after defeating Neoga and Hutsonville, and losing to Robinson, but that game against Red Hill was called off after just a third of an inning.

    In game one, senior Alexis Phillips had four singles and two RBI to lead South Central to a 7-5 win.

  • Senior Spotlight: Brady McDowell

    BROWNSTOWN – Running around his grandparents’ living room after hitting imaginary home runs some 15 years ago was just a preview of what was in store for Brady McDowell’s life.

    The Brownstown senior hasn’t stopped hustling since, and now pays tribute to his late grandpa, Dale McDowell, every time he cranks one out of the park.

    There was always a wiffle ball in a vase at grandpa’s house, McDowell remembered, but little did he know that the make-believe games from his childhood would become his reality.
