Clarksville, TN – Clarksville High School’s baseball team outlasted Mother Nature, lighting problems and Northeast High School, April 29th, to win the 2014 District 10-AAA regular-season title with a 10-2 victory over the Eagles.
The Wildcats go into district tournament on May 2nd as the number-one overall seed, and along with Rossview High School, will host one of the two tournament sites.
“I told them that I was proud of them, because they knocked off the first goal that we have as a team and that’s winning the district regular-season title,” Clarksville High coach Brian Hetland said. “Now we get to host the tournament and that’s a big thing because there’s a lot of competition out there, weather you think, or someone else thinks you’re the favorite or not.”

And when we think of a way to understand sleep and wakefulness better, it’s natural to think of biologists, behavioral scientists, neuroscientists and even mattress makers who for years have studied all kinds of animals and approaches to help us get a better night’s sleep.
