His two-day score of 160 was tied for ninth-best out of all the golfers in the region.
  • Deshaun Wethington, junior for King’s Fork High School football: He turned in another stellar performance in Friday night’s 35-11 win over visiting Lakeland High School, needing only a quarter to do most of his work.
