MG student runs to compete and live

MARYSVILLE — Born with severe asthma and crooked knees, a Marysville Getchell junior runs to live. Zachary Arcaro-Frazier runs cross country for MG. As the school's top-runner he's on a steady upswing, setting records for himself, which is at the right time with the Twilight Invitational coming up where runners will have to endure a 5k — a "championship-level" run. "It would be a really good test," said his coach, Randy Edens. Edens has enjoyed watching Arcaro-Frazier steadily improve, first as an "awkward freshman" to a maturing runner, especially when he started breaking his plateaus around the league and district championships last season.

LAKEWOOD — Down 19-6 at halftime, it seemed the Lakewood football team was done against South Delta, but quarterback Austin Lane gave the Cougars a brief rally in the third quarter. Lane put together a drive that ended in a touchdown but a missed two-point conversion brought the score to 19-12. But Lakewood's defense couldn't stop South Delta from scoring and things became lopsided again for the Cougars when they, in turn, were unable to put up points. The game ended in a 41-26 loss for Lakewood. Lakewood's record is 0-2.
