Casting for Recovery® announces retreat weekend for women breast cancer survivors

 

Casting for Recovery® (CFR), a national non-profit support and educational program for women who have or have had breast cancer, will hold a weekend retreat at Tumbling Creek Lodge in McEwen, Tennessee on March 19 – 21, 2010. This retreat is open to women of all ages and in all stages of breast cancer treatment and recovery who live in Middle and West Tennessee and is offered at no cost to the participants.

The CFR program is unique in that the curriculum incorporates the elements of fly-fishing to promote physical and mental healing.  It is an opportunity to experience a true respite from familiar surroundings and everyday routines. The casting motion provides a gentle exercise for joint and soft tissue stretching. Fly-fishing provides stress-relief and promotes a sense of calm, while the social interactions offer women a chance to share, laugh, and rejuvenate. «Read the rest of this article»

Lady Govs fall to No. 19 Pittsburgh in overtime

 

An overtime field goal was about the only thing missing from a stellar performance as Austin Peay State University women’s basketball team gave No. 19 Pittsburgh all it wanted before falling, 76-75 in overtime, Saturday, at the Dunn Center.

Austin Peay (3-8) missed all six of its field goals in the extra frame, including a three-point field goal in the closing seconds that would have tied the game. They converted four of their six free throw attempts in overtime to keep the score manageable.
