  • Being dependable

    One of my greatest sources of quotes comes from the master motivator Zig Ziglar. He said “Ability is important in our quest for success, but dependability is critical.” LCHS senior cross country runner William Pearman has proven that in the classroom and on the course to be just that, dependable.

    Pearman started running cross country as a 7th grader in 2012 and he has been a varsity runner since 2014. LCHS Cross Country Head Coach Jim B. Phelps thinks highly of his lone senior.

  • Hawks edge Russell Co. 20-7

  • Slow and steady

    We have all heard the expression “Slow and steady wins the race.” Typically, slow and steady doesn’t fit the image of athletes, but in the world of golf where humility is tested on regular occasions, that is how senior Hawks golfer Taylor Eastridge goes about the game and in life.

    Head Golf Coach Justin Craft describes Eastridge as an extremely calm kid.

    “It can be hard as a coach sometimes to tell whether he is playing well or not. His demeanor is very even keel, whether he is even par or twenty strokes over par,” Craft said.
