Back to this week’s column.
Being an educator, I can tell you that the theme for this year is assessment, both formative and sumative. Teachers use asessment for learning and to assess what has been learned. We are going to do a little bit of both today.
It is time I checked your Trigg County Sports knowledge just a little bit. Make you a list of answers to the questions and send them to Justin McGill at the Cadiz Record. I will treat the winner to a Sweet Tea at the Cadiz Restaurant or you can just revel in the fact that you are a true Trigg sports historian. On with the test.
