In the North Carolina Classic Soccer League, claiming the top spot in your division is no easy feat - and that's exactly what Macon County's U15 Storm have done this season. After seven games against larger club teams and tough regional rivals from Charlotte, the Storm occupy first place in the Second West Division for under-15 teams, and are continuing a healthy streak of ten games without a loss.

The top ranking is another first for Macon County soccer. Last year the Storm helped put Macon County soccer on the map when they won the FCCA First Strike tournament at Charlotte. The team is poised to hold onto the firstplace ranking with a strong finish in the last three games of the regular season.

All the extra training, hard work, and travel have paid off for the Storm, and coach Joel Scott is grateful that his team is receiving recognition.

"This team has been working hard together, getting better and better every year," Scott said. "I would like nothing more than to see them succeed and make it to the next level, then, succeed again."

FONTANA, Calif. - In a race that saw tire problems turn the contest upside-down, Kyle Busch won Sunday’s Auto Club 400 in a green-white-checkered-flag finish that took the fifth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event of the year six laps past its scheduled distance.

The first driver on four fresh tires for a restart on Lap 205 at Auto Club Speedway, Busch passed Stewart-Haas Racing teammates Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart on the next-to-last lap, bringing rookie Kyle Larson with him.

Able to keep Larson behind him on the final lap, Busch crossed the finish line .214 seconds ahead of the 21-year-old, who had won the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at the twomile track one day earlier.

The victory was Busch’s second straight and third overall at Fontana, his first of the season and the 29th of his career. Kurt Busch, who like Stewart took right-side tires only on the final pit stop on Lap 200, ran third, followed by polesitter Matt Kenseth and Stewart.

Franklin's Lady Panther soccer team has started its season strong by posting a 3-1 overall record and a 2-0 record in the 2-A WNC Athletic Conference.

The team's success could be due to the experience the players have on the field. The team has eight returning players from last year's team and five seniors.

“Our defensive line and keepers are top notch. They are experienced and some of the hardest working athletes I know, constantly trying to improve themselves and playing tough,” said head coach Rita Esterwood.
