  • GIRLS' PREP GOLF: Region still chasing North's Gumm (7/31)

    The sides couldn’t be more opposite. Here was a young third grader playing in first Girls’ 3rd Region Tournament, tugging her pull cart holding her clubs behind her.

On the other was the two-time region champion who crushed the ball off the tee and had the short game to go with her long drives.

    The latter was former Meade County star Katie Fraley, who went on to win the region tournament and is the last area player to win four consecutive region championships.

    Question: Does your beneficiary automatically change if you get remarried?
