Friday evening, the following message was posted on the popular running Website, letsrun.com:
âLet there be no doubt, âMorgan Uceny is the best 1,500 meter runner in the world.â Let us repeat, âMorgan Uceny is the best 1,500 meter runner in the world,ââ the Website reported after watching Fridayâs Van Damme Memorial track meet in Brussels, Belgium.
Just two weeks after she was knocked to the ground at the World Track & Field Championships in Korea, Uceny bounced back to win the womenâs 1500-meter run at Brussels, clocking the fastest time in the world this year, 4:00.06.
GRANGER â Area golfers battled some nerves at the Penn Sectional, and Bremen, John Glenn and LaVille closed out their seasons at Knollwood Country Club Friday.
No. 1-ranked Penn was led by dual low medal 76s from Karie Bellville and Anastasia Carter to claim its fourth straight sectional title with a 376 team score, while Marian placed second with a 376, and Adams grabbed the final ticket out to next weekâs LaPorte Regional with a 417.
Falcons surge past Trojans
Treavor Duff had a breakout game for John Glenn with 172 rushing yards, and the Falcons overcame an early score from Triton to claim a 62-7 Northern State Conference win at Bourbon Friday.
Triton went up 7-0 at the 10:24 mark of the first frame on a 38-yard pass from Bryson Mosier to D.J. Riffle, but it was Glennâs show from there on out as the Falcons racked up 553 total offensive yards to the Trojansâ 90 en route to nine touchdowns.
Mosier led Triton in rushing with 20 yards in nine carries, while Riffle gained 11 yards in one run.
How can parents be sure that their children are doing what they are supposed to with their school-provided computer? After all, the âInternet generationâ was so named for a reason: they tend to be more technology-inclined than their parents. The fact has not gone unaddressed by area schools.
âWe are giving (students) a device to take home that could be harmful to them,â said Culver Community High School principal Albert Hanselman.
Now that one-to-one allows students to take their computers home, parents may experience some worry about how to monitor their childâs computer time.

PLYMOUTH â If things continue to keep falling in place, Plymouth could be the site of a Little 500 Go-Cart race in August of next year.
FOP Lodge 195 has been researching the possibility of holding go-cart races in the downtown area. It has been more than 15 years since that type of race was held here.
Heading up the initial fact finding on the particulars of what a race would entail are FOP members Joe Reed and Phil Scott. Reed has made trips to various towns in and out of the state to observe races and meet with promoters.
