Carson Bacha

Carson Bacha is just 15 years old.

Tuesday, Aug. 1, competing on possibly the biggest stage of his young golfing career, Bacha played with a poise that many older golfers would likely envy.

Bacha fired a 6-under-par 66 in the second round of the 42nd annual Boys’ Junior PGA Championship to vault up the leaderboard and into contention at one of the most storied junior golf events in the world.

The Central York standout is tied for sixth place in the 144-player field at The Country Club of St. Albans, Lewis and Clark Course, in Missouri. Bacha is at 6-under par overall (138) for the tournament after an opening-round 72 on Monday, July 31. He was tied for 30th after the first round.

Dallastown High School football practice 09/23/2015

Sitting in a Hanover office on Tuesday, Aug. 1, during his first-ever York-Adams League Football Media Day as a head coach, South Western’s Chris Heilman acknowledged that he was a bit nervous.

Entering his first season as the team’s head coach, Heilman is still learning the nuances that come with being the man in charge.

“It’s kind of nervous at times,” he said. “But, I’ve been with most of these guys in January and February, when I got hired, and then in March. It’s not that new, but talking about certain things and having to explain myself, that’s a little different. Dealing with the press, that’s also a bit different.”
