The Ashville wrestling team took down number two Weaver-probably with a lot of take downs-to become State Champs!
Both the boys and girls basketball teams bested Victory Christian. This is their second win in a row. Maybe a state championship in their future too?
High scoring girls were Rachel St. John, Sara Beth Potter, Ryleigh Wade, Kadie Kennedy and Carla Thompson. Ashton Vann, Brady Northam, Adrienne Hernandez, Caleb Bailey and Jacob Wilson scored the most points for the boy Bulldawgs.
Congratulations to Ashlee Eastis on signing day. Central Alabama Community College is getting a great girl and a great softball player. Your community is proud
Ashville athletes continue to distinguish themselves They are talented, hardworking and dedicated. But the importance of good coaching cannot be overvalued. Faculty and students have recently recognized coaches Mara Mattison and Nick Wilson.
Mattison coaches girls soccer and volleyball at Ashville High School. She also organizes the homecoming representatives and coronation of Who's Who as well as the prom. Wilson is the assistant football coach at Ashville High School. He spends a great deal of time with the young athletes. It's been said he lives there! He is also very involved with the school’s media including Dawg TV and Bulldog Talk.
The praise is well deserved.

This week's column ends on a sad note. Ashville has lost one of her favorite sons. Mike Sheffield was born in Gadsden but an Ashvillian at heart. He was Mr. Ashville High School. Later, he held elected offices at the Museum of Archives. One of his fellow citizens described him as, "Everybody's best friend."
We send our heartfelt condolences to Mr. Sheffield's family and those fortunate enough to be among his nearest and dearest. The elected offices he held and outpouring of emotion prove a much-loved man
He will be sorely missed.
