    What do you do for fun?

    I enjoy playing X-box, which most people are surprised to learn, and I like to go shopping, which most people expect from a girl.

    How about school clubs?

    Beta Club.

    Favorite school subject and why:

    Peer tutoring, because when I go into that room – no matter how my mood has been all day, those kids put me in a good mood.

    Favorite TV shows:

  • Spots Brief-Peyton Captains...

    MacKenzie Peyton was honored by her teammates at the Hurricane Cup when they elected her captain of the team for the tournament that was held at Sea Island, Ga., from Nov. 30 to Dec. 1.

    Team Kentucky finished sixth in the coed tournament that was played with a Ryder Cup-type format. Team Florida won the tournament.

    According to the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour website the first round consisted of nine holes of alternate shot and nine holes of best ball. The second round was a traditional 18-hole singles competition.

  • Local athletes thriving on the...

    As the fall sports season winds down it is time to catch up with local athletes who are competing at the collegiate level.

    Thomas More football foursome

    Eric Butler, Cody Hinkle, Luke Magness and Nick Magness are playing football for a Saints team that is having a stellar season.

    Thomas More finished the season with a 9-1 record and were 22nd in NCAA Division III as of Nov. 16.

  • Busting the scholarship myth

    I’ve thought long and hard about doing this column on misconceptions regarding the availability of college athletic scholarships.

    On the one hand, I don’t want to discourage local athletes from reaching for their dreams. On the other hand, I know there are many athletes and parents out there who think that athletic scholarships are easier to obtain than academic scholarships.

    I know others who mainly want to see their kids get athletic scholarships for the prestige it will bring them amongst their sports-crazy friends and peers.

  • Peyton's State Runner-up...

    1. It was easy to pick the top highlight of the season this year. MacKenzie Peyton’s runner-up performance at the state golf tournament was stellar but so was her whole season.

    The all-state golf selection system is one of the least subjective in high school sports, and because of that, a young athlete can be rewarded for their efforts even if they don’t come from a big-name program.
