Here’s a thought to help you beat the heat.
The fall sports season will start in the middle of next month. Things will cool down and local sports fans can watch football, boys tennis, cross country, girls golf, and soccer. As usual, Terry and I will bring you previews of each team.
Bloomfield tennis coach Mike Canty said the Cardinal netters will begin practice at 6:00 p.m. Monday, July 30, at the Bloomfield sports complex tennis courts south of town. Players must submit their physicals before they will be permitted to practice.
Several Stingrays Set Records
The Greene County Stingrays conducted an awards ceremony Tuesday night at the A.M. Risher Aquatic Center.
Coach Kyle Kirchner recognized four swimmers for setting new pool records for the Risher pool. I forgot to put those in Wednesday’s story, but here they are:
Emma Brinson, girls ages 15 and up, free style.
Trey Goodman, boys age 15 and up, butterfly and individual medley.
John Powers, boys ages 9-10, free style.
Kennedy Landis, girls ages 9-10, free style.
As an added bonus, here are two pictures of Greene County swimmers taken Thursday, July 12, at the home meet with South Vermillion.

Quote of the Month
It was late in the game Friday, July 13, and the South squad trailed 27-24 in the Indiana Football Coaches Association All-Star game with about 90 seconds to play. The referees ruled a third-down pass incomplete even though the receiver appeared to make a diving catch.
South coach Andy Owen of Evansville Central yelled out to one of the zebras: “When he catches the ball and rolls over twice, it’s still a catch.”
