Can’t be too careful with tree stands

By Glynn Harris

Turkey season has ended and it’s time to go fishing, or time to find other activities to do in the outdoors. One of the things many outdoorsmen do this time of year is to give their deer stands the onceover before the weather gets too hot and the wasps take over. This is a great idea but after reading a post on Face Book recently, it’s also an activity that can get you seriously hurt.

The Lady Tigers knew coming into this quarterfinal matchup with Ascension Catholic at the Fast Pitch 56 tournament in Sulphur last Friday that they would have their hands full. When the Lady Tigers defeated Central Catholic in the second round they had just knocked off the reigning state champs, but life was not going to get any easier. Ascension Catholic was the team that Central Catholic beat to win the state title last year and they felt as if they had something to prove.
