The waiting game is over: Falcons beat Salisbury in L&C tournament for first win
It was a month into the 2016 season, and the Fayette baseball team was still without a win. Nine games to begin the season, all with the same result.
That all changed Saturday at the Lewis & Clark Conference tournament in Moberly. Fayette finally found a reason to celebrate.
Unlike the first nine losses of the season, Fayette took an early lead against Salisbury in the third-place game, and this time, the Falcons never lost that lead. Fayette defeated the Panthers 10-6, earning its first win of the season.

Central Methodist started the weekend with a seven-inning no-hitter by Erin Enke on Saturday against MidAmerica Nazarene. The Eagles then finished the weekend with a five-inning no-hitter by Haley Kinnison on Sunday against William Penn on Senior Day to wrap up a four-game sweep at Cox Softball Complex.

Sanders wins CAC individual high points medal
Having a total of five boys and six girls limited Glasgow’s middle school track team at the Central Activities Conference meet on April 20 at Westran. But even with the limitations on events, Glasgow found a way to reach its maximum potential.
Hadley Sanders won three of her four events en route to taking home the CAC individual high points medal, guiding the Lady Jackets to a fourth-place finish as a team at the conference meet. De’shonne Cowans won two of his four events and fell half a point shy of giving Glasgow the sweep in the high points titles. The Yellowjackets took fifth place in the conference, despite not having enough athletes to field relay teams.
