Clarendon Hall varsity boys’ basketball coach Anthony Reitenour is pulling double duty this year. He will also serve as the varsity girls’ basketball coach during the 2017-18 season. “It’s been really interesting,” said Reitenour of coaching both teams at the same time. “You get to see different levels of talent among the separate groups. The teams can feed off of each other as well.” Like the boys’ team, the girls finished 0-17 in the 2016-17 season. Reitenour said he’s obviously hoping for a better finish in the 2017-18 season. “They were pretty much as green as the boys’ team,” Reitenour… Read the rest

Posted by | November 17, 2017 1:37 pm

Most of the 130 or so golfers at the Second Chance Animal Shelter Golf Classic luncheon probably had cell phones, but unfortunately, no one captured what was to many people the most exciting moment of the day.

Most of the other golfers were probably disappointed that they hadn’t won the bike – until they saw… Read the rest
