ST. MARYS — If awareness of head injuries had been as focused six years ago as it is now, parent and tennis coach Brice Brenneman says he might have worried more about the three sports concussions his son suffered while in high school.
“The first one was a routine heading in soccer,” Brenneman said. “He came home, got sick, fell asleep. The first one the doctors treated as a fluke.”
The second and third concussions were treated more seriously, however, leading doctors to recommend he wear a foam padded helmet to play sports.
ST. MARYS — The seventh and eighth grade choir and band students at St. Marys Middle School performed their annual holiday concert yesterday evening to a full house.
Guests who arrived shortly before the performance had to stand because every seat in the auditorium was filled.
Seventh-Grade Band Director Dane Newlove led the students in their first song, “Deck the Halls With Dazzling Drummers,” which, as the title suggests, was dominated by its drummers. This added life to a traditional holiday tune.
