But Higa isn’t fazed by the opposition — as long as his family joins him on the sidelines. “The best feeling in the world is hearing my wife and daughter cheering me on. It’s the greatest,” said Higa, who competes in the heavyweight division.

Lauren Campbell delivered the look.
Campy Campolo doesn’t always have the best view of the football action. By design, someone’s often right in her way.
The second annual Kentlake Baseball Summer Camp is being offered for kids between the ages of 7 and 12 and will be held from July 25-27. Kids between age 7 and 9 will work out from 9 a.m. until noon. Kids between 10 and 12 will work out from 1 to 4 p.m.

He took a flight down to Florida a couple weeks ago.
Scott Simmons has lost a pair of uncles to cancer. His dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer a little more than a year ago, but is doing better each and every day. To say Simmons has had his eyes opened by the disease is an understatement.
