by: Ray Boone Sports Editor
  1. The AdventHealth Palm Coast Foundation donated three automated external defibrillators that will be on-site and available at baseball fields throughout Flagler County and at the softball fields at the Indian Trails Sports Complex. AEDs are portable devices that check the heart rhythm and treat sudden cardiac arrest. If needed, it can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm. This gift was inspired by Dr. Joe McKinley, a gastroenterologist at AdventHealth Palm Coast. He volunteers as a baseball coach for his three sons, and through that experience, he learned that none of the area baseball or softball fields have AEDs on-site.

  2. Matanzas' girls cross country team competed in the eighth-annual Spikes and Spurs Classic on Aug. 24 at the Flagler County Fairgrounds. The Lady Pirates were the top finishing team from Flagler County, as they placed fifth as a group. Matanzas had four girls place in the top 50: Kelly Steffens (19th) with a time of 21:22.80, Genevieve Mundy (23rd) with a time of 21:40.80, Emily Hatten (34th) with a time of 22:13.60 and Caitlyn Norfork (37th) with a time of 22:24.40.

  3. Flagler Palm Coast's boys cross country team also competed in the event. The Bulldogs finished in 12th place as a team. The boys had one runner finish in the top 50 individually: Alex Barneski placed 41st with a time of 17:51.41.

  4. The Bulldogs girls cross country team also competed in the event, placing 11th as a team. Sophomore Jada Williams was the only Bulldog to finish in the top 50, placing 17th with a time of 21:11.30.
