COACH SHELTON CONTINUED “We have a lot of newcomers to the Varsity level this year, including 6 guys who were making their Varsity debuts. We know we are going to have some games like this this fall, as we learn to compete at a new level, but we will have to do much better defensively if we want to find success this season. I am confident that we will continue to improve this fall, however, as I have been very happy with the progress we have made already in a few weeks of practice. We will continue pushing ourselves everyday and will be determined to raise our level of play!

DIXON GOES TO CALVARY LUTHERN TOMORROW..
IBERIA HOSTS MACKS CREEK TUESDAY…

TODAY IS A FARILY QUIET DAY ON THE HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS SCENE….

**
Jon Rahm HOLED A 66 FOOT PUTT IN A PLAYOFF WITH DUSTIN JOHNSON AND WON THE BMW CHAMPIONSHIP OUTSIDE OF CHIGACO YESTERDAY ON one of the toughest courses of the year.
Rahm AND JOHNSON BOTH finished at 4 under, BUT it looked like JOHNSON was going to come up a stroke or two short. Instead, Johnson birdied the 15th and made the 3 of the year on No. 18 by sinking an impossible 43-foot putt over a ridge and down a hill.
BACK ON NO. 18 IN OVERTIME, ABOUT 20 MINUTES AFTER D.J, SANK HIS 43 FOOTER, RAHM MADE HIS 66 FOOTER, THIS ONE TURNED OUT TO BE THE MONEY AND THE WIN…..
