Heat dictates times
for jamboree starts

The intense heat that has gripped the area has forced a pair of Friday night jamborees to alter their original schedules.
The Dyersburg Jamboree will reportedly have its start time pushed back a half-hour from 6:30 until 7 p.m. Obion Central, which is scheduled to scrimmage two quarters with Lake County, will now begin its play around 7:45.
At Reidland, South Fulton and the host Greyhounds will play two quarters, starting at 9:30, after their Ken-Tenn Jamboree was pushed back an hour from its initial starting time.

Drew Hayes headed
from Bethel to Vandy

Former McKenzie High School baseball standout Drew Hayes has transferred to Vanderbilt to continue his collegiate career.
Hayes played last season — his freshman year — at Bethel College in his hometown, posting a 6-4 record with a 2.72 earned run average. As a senior, Hayes led MHS to the Class A state championship in 2006.
His father, Glen Hayes, was the coach of the Wildcats baseball team last season, but the veteran skipper recently stepped away from the program.
The younger Hayes, who said he’s been told he’ll be given a shot to be Vandy’s closer, will have three years of eligibility remaining with the Commodores.
