Bishop Gorman’s Randall Cunningham Jr. scored on a 1-yard run with 2 minutes and 56 seconds left in the third quarter against Mountain Pointe on Aug. 23.
Wesley Payne’s right ankle was taped, his gait was altered and the pain was persistent, but his mentality mirrored that of Mountain Pointe’s season.

Caramel is a sweet 11-year-old Beagle girl whose owner moved away and left her behind. She is so easygoing and very obedient. She likes to just hang out, take naps and sniff around the yard.

Dieting is hard and Caramel is hungry so if there is more than one dog in the home it would be best to feed her separately.
