11th Annual Kinkley Klassic Cross Country Golf Tournament
On Wed., Oct. 22, 64 Graeagle men and women teed it up (from strange places, aiming in peculiar directions) for the annual Kinkley Klassic Cross Country Golf Tournament — a four-person team scramble. Each autumn, Graeagle Men’s Golf Association member Gary Kinkley and his band of zany assistants turn Graeagle Meadows Golf Course on its ear. We teed off from the first tee box, aiming for the second green, over a pond, making it a par 3, instead of its usual long par 4. On some holes, we had to watch for cross traffic, hitting across our “fairway.” One hole was played backward to a green beyond the normal tee box, making it a par 6. A meeting and detailed written instructions were required to negotiate the cross country course.

Greenville volleyball tied for league lead

The Indians had managed, over the course of the past month and until their game with Westwood, to only allow opponents wins in four sets — and have managed to log a statistical record of 5.1 kills per set, put up 69 total blocks, hit for 169 service aces and average three aces per set.
The defense of the CORE Lynxes was so lacking during the game that Greenville’s normally high dig rate was tamped down a bit, with senior Nikole Machado earning four and fellow senior Brook House and sophomore Valerie Peter fighting for two apiece. Senior Trinity Lincoln was a firecracker on the stops for Greenville as well, with a pair of solo blocks to her credit.
