WALKERTON â€” Tanner Brooks of Walkerton recently competed in the 2012 USA Shooting Olympic Trials in Kerrville, Texas.Â
Brooks, an International Skeet shooter, finished in the top 10 in the first leg of the Olympic trials by shooting a 235/250.Â This event is the first of two tournaments to determine the USA Olympic representatives for International Skeet for the 2012 Olympic Games to be held in London.Â
CULVER â€” Call it a hunch.
Argos starting goalie Jacob Mechling had been performing creditably in goal for more than 87 and a half minutes, but with a shoot-out with Bremen looming, Dragons head coach Todd VanDerWeele subbed in forward and erstwhile keeper Zach Stockman with 6:21 remaining in the second overtime period.
Stockman made two big saves in the shoot-out, and Argos freshman Damon Binkley gave a subdued fist pump after icing his penalty kick to salt away a 3-2 win over the Lions at the Class A Culver Community Boys Soccer Sectional Saturday.
