I live in a county of 14,000 people. The county seat, Floyd, is home to a mere 440 souls. And the entire county has just one stoplight and no four-lane roads. Think Mayberry.
(I joke that when my family moved from Seattle to Floyd three years ago the town's population grew by one percent.)
So, as you can imagine, high school sports are a big deal here.
Today, Floyd County High School and the community have something to be proud of -- another state high school golf championship (Group A). It's the third state title in seven years, not quite a dynasty but certainly a strong golf tradition.
Soon there will be another black and gold state championship banner hanging in the old gymnasium.
