Jones County's Veal leaves dugout for AD spot

Change is on the way for Jones County High School's baseball program, and for the athletic program as a whole.

Greyhound coach Barry Veal is leaving the diamond, and taking over as Jones County's athletic director. Veal coached Jones County baseball for the last 21 seasons. He was also assistant athletic director with softball head coach Blake Lyons.

After encouragement from Lyons, Veal decided to step away from the dugout, and step into the role of head athletic director.

Sport Fencing growing at high school and middle school levels

Sport Fencing growing at high school and middle school levels

Many parents and educators across the U.S. are coming to realize the benefits to students of Olympic Sport Fencing.  Sport fencing has been a small but ever present sport in America since the 19th century.  Usually, and erroneously, associated with the privileged class, it has found little place at large in the ball dominate sports arena in America.  However, that view has been changing rapidly over the 25 years.  The U.S. has grown steadily in world prominence including generation of World Champions and Olympic Gold and Silver medalist.  This growth is attributed with broader media coverage but also with a concerted effort by coaches and fencing enthusiast to promote this exciting sport at the middle school and high school levels around the country.  This moves fencing out from the traditional private salles (clubs) and college environments so as to make it accessible to everyone who is interested.
