Each year, several Stephens County high schoolers are lucky enough to get the opportunity to go to “the next level” and take part in college athletics.
Throughout the week we checked-up on how some of those student-athletes did during the 2011-2012 school year. On Monday, we looked at tennis players, Tuesday was football, Wednesday was softball, Thursday was baseball, Friday was wrestling and today we wrap up with basketball, golf, track, bowling (yes bowling) and a few that slipped through the cracks earlier in the week.
