Boys' Athlete of Year: Pat Yoakum

Sports in high school to me meant waking up at 6:30 a.m. in the summer to lift. Then I would have speed training camp at 8 o'clock. Next, I would have basketball open gym until 9. Finally, I could rest for about 10 minutes and then go to my golf practice. After I am done putting in the practice for golf, I can actually get 18 holes in. Now it is 1 p.m.

Bulletin board: Uniform look for Schlarman

DANVILLE — The Schlarman softball team is unique beyond carrying the No. 1 state ranking in Class 1A into the postseason. The Hilltoppers are one of the few teams that still wear stirrups as a part of their uniform.

Most programs — such as Schlarman's baseball team — have gone to a solid-color sock.


Bulletin board: Khachaturian going south

CHAMPAIGN — St. Thomas More golf standout Nathaniel Khachaturian recently signed a letter of intent to continue his career at Lamar in Beaumont, Texas.

Khachaturian was a four-year starter for the Sabers and a member of the state championship team in 2008. He finished fourth in last year's state meet.
