    The Big 8 Conference is technically the Big 9 this year, with McDonald County joining the league prior to Carl Junction leaving for the COC. The Lady Bulldogs figure to be in the mix in a wide open race, with Aurora, East Newton, Mt. Vernon and the Lady Mustangs all looking strong.

    Mt. Vernon's Ashley Childers is one of the top golfers in the state, and an accomplished champion on the MGA Junior Circuit, as well. Last year's state runner-up has a clear cut goal in mind for her senior season: win State!
