The girls then made dog beds by hand to be donated at the end of the project. Lillian Williams, Alanna Schiffer, Miranda Chiguma and Olivia Rouse all agreed it was a cause they wanted to help. The project began with the girls raising $500 dollars by selling Girl Scout cookies and magazines. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – As a part of their Girl Scout silver project, Troop 30463 in Binghamton, raised money to help the Humane Society. It was an experience all four girls said they were happy to be a part of and all their hard work was worth completing their end goal and getting their award. “I enjoyed knowing it was going to help animals that needed the beds,” said Chiguma. The group used the remaining money to buy food, toys and other supplies the humane society was in need of. “We think that animals should be treated as well as humans do because if you’re a human wouldn’t you want to sleep on a bed,” said Rouse.
Congratulations to recent Batesville High School graduate, Zach Britton, on being named the District H high school baseball player of the year. Britton was a 4-year member of the Batesville varsity as a catcher. This year he compiled the following statistics: batting average of .553 which included 6 home runs, 27 runs batted in, and 34 walks.Britton’s high school statistics would have been higher on the all-time list except for an injury that cost him most of one season. He will, however, join another BHS graduate, Bryan Hoeing, in Louisville this fall if he chooses not to accept a major league baseball offer that is sure to come. Most experts say that the quickest way to the major leagues is as a catcher. Congratulations and good luck to Zach!I would like to thank the Herald Tribune for some of the statistics in this article.
The website for the Mt. San Antonio College Relays, more commonly known as the Mt. Sac Relays, proclaims the meet to be “where the world’s best athletes compete!”Jumps · Junior hurdler Brendan Ames shares USC’s best time in the 110-meter hurdler with junior Oscar Spurlock at 13.81 seconds. Ames and Spurlock will be tested this weekend against some of the nation’s best. – Gary Fung | Daily Trojan The USC track and field team will need to be at its best from April 15 to 17 in Walnut, Calif., if it wants to justify its current No. 7 ranking and have a strong showing against those athletes.“This meet will give us a much better idea of where we stand, especially within the conference,” USC coach Ron Allice said. “The competition was very stiff just to qualify [for the Mt. Sac Relays]. Not everyone that we wanted to get in got in.”For the athletes who qualified, the meet will give them the opportunity to both improve their qualifying times for the championship season and improve against some of the stiffest competition the Trojans have faced all year.“Generally speaking, we’re going to put people in their best event,” Allice said. “We’re trying to give people the best chances to post their best time for later this year.”The Mt. Sac website isn’t being hyperbolic when it uses the phrase “world’s best athletes.” With U.S. collegiate powerhouses like Stanford, Baylor and Washington, USC will run, throw and hurdle against athletes from Bermuda, Great Britain, Canada, Finland and a myriad of other nations eager to show what they can do on the American stage.“You wouldn’t be at USC if you didn’t think you could compete at that level with athletes from around the globe,” Allice said. “That’s what we try to do. We try to put our athletes in a position where they can compete against the best, no matter where they’re from.”USC currently has 57 men and women scheduled to compete at Mt. Sac, including some of its most impressive athletes.Senior Ahmad Rashad, generally considered to be USC’s best short-distance runner, will run both the 100-meter and 200-meter dash after a couple weeks without competition.Junior hurdlers Oscar Spurlock and Brendan Ames, who both have best times of 13.81 in the men’s 110-meter high hurdles, ranked ninth in the nation, will both compete in the event this weekend.Sophomore Dalilah Muhammad, who last weekend won the women’s high jump at the Pomona-Pitzer Invitational, will return to the 400-meter hurdles for the USC women, the event in which she set the nation’s fastest time this year at the Trojan Invitational back in March.Junior Zsofia Erdelyi, originally from Godollo, Hungary, will compete in the women’s 5,000-meter run at a meet in which her home country is represented in the women’s hammer throw.Once all the results are in, Allice said the next objective is to use the times to determine strategy for the USC-UCLA dual meet on May 1.“Our performances will determine how we line [the dual meet] up,” Allice said. “It’s key that we do well this weekend for the sake of the rest of the year.”
