Tournament update, Tuesday night, part two

June 30, 2009

The finish line is in sight for two teams in the District 6 Minors Tournament in Hope Mills.

Of course, it’s a little closer for some than it is for others.

Hope Mills American will face Stedman Wednesday night at 6:30, needing only a win to secure the tournament title. Stedman needs a win at 6:30, then another one in a game that would be played around 9 p.m.

Both teams have secured bids to the state tournament in Clarkton, starting on July 11.

Here’s the updated bracket:

A call for help

March 30, 2009

Warning: The following has nothing, I repeat nothing, to do with youth sports.

I’ve been asked to help compile entries for our annual profile of what people earn here in the region.

I’d really like to do this without calling random people. So I thought I’d solicit people here on the site who want to participate.

It’s really not that complicated. In fact, here’s a sample from last year:

$18,000
Shannon Clifton, 39
Receptionist
Clifton’s biggest challenge these days is taking care of her family while filling up her SUV at the same time. “I’d get something smaller, but there’s no trade-in value for big vehicles,” she said. To get by, she’s cutting back on frills. “I don’t eat out much, and stay at home,” she said.

See, that’s it. Piece of cake.

Want to help me out? Send me an e-mail to cappsr@fayobserver.com if you’d like to participate.

We now return you to regularly scheduled youth sports programming…

Saturday’s games still on

January 22, 2009

Just asked athletic director Michael Seals, and the basketball games slated for Saturday are still on at the area Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks and Recreation Departments.

I’ve got a note in to his counterpart in Hope Mills, Maxey Dove, to make sure that the games are on down there as well.

I hope so, since I’m planning on going.

I’m also trying to track down the latest standings. When I get them, they’ll be here.

And since I haven’t asked lately…

I NEED SOME PICTURES!!!

Seriously, this is your site. Use it. Send your rec photos to me at cappsr@fayobserver.com.
