At Bandys, the girls' basketball team is a family affair.
From the head coach to the assistant coach to the junior varsity coach and many of the players, almost every part of the team involves family. It started when head coach Beth Queen began coaching AAU basketball with her players when they were age 9-10.
"I guess there is more comfort because we have coached them from such a young age," Queen said. "We know them really well, and we know what to expect. Sometimes we know what to expect before the kid does it on the court."
The St. Stephens wrestling team finished 2010 with a bang.
The Indians were a perfect 5-0 record at the RS Central Duals on Saturday. They defeated McDowell (62-15), West Henderson (62-9), Chase (46-24), Polk County (55-24) and tournament host RS Central (65-15).
Not only was their record impressive, but so were the milestones of two individuals on the team.
Coach Billy Baker reached his 350th career win on the last dual of the day against Polk County.
