North Sports Report – October 3, 2013

by Mark North, president of The Fans, Inc

ACT Practice Test

Define: Intense

  1. a walk in the park
  2. the place where campers sleep
  3. last week’s Hume-Fogg vs. MLK girls soccer match

Correct Answer: c.

The North Sports Report marveled at the nonstop action and fierce competition between these two rivals. The stands at historic Pearl High Football Stadium on the MLK campus were packed with screaming, face-painted, drum-beating, flag-waving students from both schools. For those who have never attended a sporting event at that historic and majestic location, do it soon. Bloodied and battered (seriously, sometimes there is blood in soccer), the student-athletes franticly battled to the last whistle with the supportive throng behind them. The NSR was exhausted just from watching. Put attending games between these two rivals on your To Do list…Intense!

If this were an oral exam, you also would receive credit for “b. the place where campers sleep” i.e. in tents.

Middle School Volleyball – State Legislator in the House

The NSR joined State Representative Darren Jernigan (Hunters Lane graduate) at Neely’s Bend Middle School for the volleyball matches pitting DuPont Hadley Middle, Two Rivers Middle, and Neely’s Bend Middle.

Throwback Thursday

Neely’s Bend Middle still displays the vintage Golden Beaver mascot. Groovy!

Football this Week

The television cameras invade Green Hills for Thursday Night Lights as the Hillsboro Burros host the Antioch Bears. The game will be broadcast on WUXP Channel 30, so come out to the game and when the camera catches a glimpse of you in the stands, tug your ear, say “Hi Mom,” or wave. The viewing audience wants to see you there!
