He couldn't repeat the effort on Sunday, however, as he finished 10th in the final track and field event in Beijing.

I have looked everywhere to get news related to the Foothill Owls Football Team who are undefeated this season. Do you have any recommendations as to what newspaper might cover the team and how to reach them? Thank You. My e-mail is sharonhc@pacbell.net.
