    Endurance is the name of the game in cross country, and D’Anthony Collins proved he is a champion in that category running 3.1 miles in under 20 minutes.

    Collins completed that feat after attending football practice for three hours that same afternoon.

    Only runners from cross-country powerhouses Walton Verona and Trimble County crossed the finish line ahead of Collins.

    The boys and girls teams each finished fourth out of the eight teams entered in each division.

    Getting a college education can be a daunting task, but Lyndsey Bevill is achieving that by playing her way through Northern Kentucky University on a golf scholarship.

    While a student at Carroll County High School, Bevill was known for her tough defense and soft shot off the glass as a member of the Lady Panther basketball team. But in the fall, she also played golf under the tutelage of coaches Pam and Brad McNeal and Randy Mefford.

    Members of the Trimble County High School cross-country team are off to a fast start this season.

    While a student at Trimble County High School, Sara Spurr was not a member of the cross-country team. Nor was she a participant in Raider track and field competitions.

    Maybe that’s why it came as such a surprise to her family and friends when the 2005 TCHS grad announced recently that she was training for a marathon.

    The Carroll County cross country team traveled to Williamstown last week for its first race of the season, and tried to make a mark against some very good teams.

    “Our team is young but has really been putting in some great work this last month,” Jones said. “I am pleased with the way we raced down the stretch.”
