One of the things I have gotten used to — whether I want to or not — is the constant changeover in the coaching ranks in high school sports.

I have been covering sports now since August of 1990 and though I understand that there aren’t many of my old “friends” left from when I started, it’s amazing how many of my new “friends” come and go so quickly.

That not only includes coaches but my colleagues in the business.

BOWLING GREEN — Undefeated and top-ranked Crestview took an early lead on local rival Wayne Trace in Friday night’s Division IV regional final played at Bowling Green State University.

Jumping out to a 16-2 start, Crestview didn’t allow a Wayne Trace field goal until 6:40 to play in the second quarter. What could have turned into a blowout, however, became a classic battle between two familiar opponents, with the Knights pulling away late for a 44-34 win.

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Denny Hamlin ended two weeks of Team Penske dominance by winning the pole at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Hamlin set a track record Friday with a lap at 129.991 mph to earn the top starting spot. It broke the mark of 129.535 set by Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch a year ago and ensured that neither Brad Keselowski or Joey Logano won the pole for the first time since NASCAR’s new knockout qualifying debuted three weeks ago.
