Move-Ins Move Lady Mules’ Expectations Even Higher After Record Season

Chet Snyder’s Fairfield Lady Mules are coming off a historic 31-9 season that included a school record for wins, and their first trip to the volleyball Super Sectional a year ago. They also won the Benton Invitational for the first time ever. They lost six girls from that squad, but returned a solid nucleolus that had expectations still high. Then, over the summer a group of move-ins to Fairfield sent those expectations soaring, as the Lady Mules should be one of the best 2A teams in the south this year. Six Departed Last year’s six seniors helped take the program … Continue reading Move-Ins Move Lady Mules’ Expectations Even Higher After Record Season

With the start of high school sports this week, I am running behind, so this post will be rolled out in phases today, starting with the noon game. After a 1-4 start Thursday, my ratings went 6-2 ATS on the Friday slate. I had only one actual bet last night, Wisconsin -10.5. They won by 49 in the Jonathan Taylor Heisman campaign launch.

College Football Week 1–Friday Slate

Here are the IAW spreads for Friday’s games in week 1. The pick I like the most on this slate is Wisconsin -10.5 on the road. They should be able to get the lead early enough and then ride Taylor to a double-digit win. They return a ton, except for up front on offense, but the Badgers tend to be a reload team at o-line, not a rebuild one. That Utah St-Wake Forest game has some interest, as Utah St has one of the better non-Power 5 quarterbacks in Jordan Love, who NFL teams are high on. Problem is, he … Continue reading College Football Week 1–Friday Slate

Conrad Ties For Medalist In Olney Golf Quad

Competing in Olney Wednesday, Coach Brent Sutton’s Fairfield Mules finished third as a team in the four-team match, while senior Maverick Conrad finished in a three-way tie for low score on the day. Conrad tied Charleston’s Taylor Drake and Richland County’s Mitchell Tolliver with a 39. Drake hit a triple bogey on the first hole, but shot pars on seven of the eight other holes. Conrad avoided any disastrous holes, shooting bogeys on holes three, four, six and eight, with pars on the other five holes. Richland County won the meet with a team score of 165, with Charleston in … Continue reading Conrad Ties For Medalist In Olney Golf Quad
