A 2003 bachelor of science degree in public relations graduate returned to Austin Peay for the first time in five years, October 26th, as he was honored in the Morgan University Center Ballroom as one of the two Outstanding Young Alumnus Award recipients for 2013 by the university.

Clarksville, TN – Senior Daniel Norl scored seven straight points in the third quarter, February 14th in the opening round of the District 10-AAA tournament, to rally top-seeded Kenwood High School past a stubborn Clarksville High squad, 57-44.

Clarksville, TN – There wasn’t much celebration on the Kenwood High School sidelines or in the stands, February 4th, despite the Knights wrapping up the District 10-AAA regular-season title, with starting post player Jimario Rivers suffering a right ankle injury in the waning seconds of a 57-40 victory over Rossview High School.
Rivers had been a catalyst on both ends of the court for the Knights (20-5, 11-2 District 10-AAA), as he led Kenwood with 22 points and 17 rebounds, but as he was helping to bring the ball up the court in the final 10 seconds of the game he got tangled up with a couple of Rossview players and fell out of bound just short of midcourt.
