WNBA

WNBA star Brittney Griner’s lawyers and agent Thursday said she has begun serving her nine-year sentence for drug possession at a Russian penal colony. Griner was transferred to a penal colony in Mordovia, about 210 miles east of Moscow, after a Russian court rejected the appeal of her sentence last month. Her lawyers said they visited her earlier this week. “Brittney is doing as well as expected and trying to stay strong as she adapts to a new environment.”

HIGH SCHOOL

Mt Vernon defeated Tatum last week, 42-6, and head football coach Brad Williard said the weather was a definite factor in the game. But, first, it dictated running the ball. Williard said resiliency and being able to change plans on a dime have been a strength of the team this year. Mt Vernon takes on West in the second round of the playoffs.

Trapper Golden is a three-year starter who pitches and plays the outfield for the Hughes Springs Mustangs. He locked up a couple of years of college academic and athletic future on Wednesday when he signed a national letter of intent with the University of Arkansas Rich Mountain.

The Mt Pleasant Tigers advance to the second round in the Mavs Fall Classic Green Bracket. At Lebanon Trail High School, Mt Pleasant will face Abilene at 9:00 Friday morning.
