New turf at FRA: Field turf is being installed at Franklin Road Academy, and it probably will be ready for the Panthers’ home opener against Hillsboro on Aug. 24. Crews have been working on it since school let out in May. FRA also has field turf on a multi-purpose field inside its track.
First game important: Davidson Academy is putting a lot of emphasis on its first game against White House-Heritage because the Bears started last season 0-5. Coach Bill Alexander is hoping it sets the tone for the rest of the year. Discipline issues and injuries contributed to Davidson Academy’s bad start last season.
East loses team: Riverside Christian has dropped out of Division II-A’s East Division, leaving only Davidson Academy, Ezell-Harding and Knoxville Webb. All three teams will qualify for the playoffs.
