  • Catchings winding down...

    From last fall to now the national sports media have reported in depth on the final seasons of professional superstars Peyton Manning, Kobe Bryant and David Ortiz.
    But the final season of one superstar whose accomplishments compare well with those three has not received nearly as much publicity, and her gender seems to be the only reason.

    But he thought the Marksmen played well overall.
    “Our team played possession ball and we played a good 70 minutes of soccer,” he said. “We were not rushing the ball up the field, we played as a team and we are improving with each match.
