Team suffers first loss Monday
LEBANON -- Cumberland University remained No. 1 for the fourth straight week in the NAIA Women's Soccer Coaches' Top 25 Poll, the national office announced Tuesday. This week's poll includes matches through Sunday, October 26.
The Bulldogs took home 588 points and 18-of-21 first-place votes, earning their fourth No. 1 ranking in school history.
I have liked this October. The week of rain probably hurt the bowhunting to some extent. Early in the season, I had predicted we might set and archery kill record.
Now, I am not so sure. But except for the one week (which I avoided - more about that later), the weather was about as good for hunting as you could ask.
This is the time of the year that I call the " inbetweens ", where it is still too warm here, but not cool enough where our winter birds will start showing up. Just about the only thing here is our regular all the time species, that you can find here around your feeders.
A Murfreesboro woman was killed Tuesday morning when her motorcycle collided with a pickup truck near the intersection of Hwy. 109 and Academy Rd. in Lebanon.
