The students at Victory Christian School, located just over Cowee Mountain in Jackson County, have always wanted to show the public their mascot. For years they have been known as the Victory Cardinals, but only in name, never in physical form.

That all changed last Tuesday. After the girls' basketball team capped off a dominant win, the crowd in attendance was introduced to D.W. Red, the school's very first mascot.


LAS VEGAS – Ultimately, the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards were all about Jimmie Johnson and his sixth series championship, but there were some pointed jokes and some return barbs before the Friday night program at Wynn Las Vegas got there.

After team owner Rick Hendrick, sponsor Lowe's and crew chief Chad Knaus all received their due, Johnson took the podium to acknowledge those who had helped make his sixth title possible.


Last season the Franklin High School men's varsity basketball team posted a winning season with a record of 20-9. Now as the season begins to take off once again, head coach Jesse Pinkston is optimistic despite having long odds.

“It could be a tough season. We lost seven seniors from last year so experience is definitely lacking,” he said. “Basically we have one returning player who had a significant role last season, but we're going to be okay. We're taking it one game at a time and one practice at a time.”
