One of the neat things about the outdoor summer swimming leagues are the vivid colors of so many of the swimsuits and many more caps that many participants wear as they compete. The photo with this blog is such an...

Sports Notebook: Bad sight lines

The girls softball field at South County High School is very nice, well kept and as quality as any in the area. The sight lines for spectators, though, is another issue. They are horrible. There are no stands behind home...
