This is the first part of a series taking a look at the impact of sports specialization and club sports on high school athletics.
The lanes at the Nugget Bowl often are used for fundraising events, and some have become annual traditions.

Mixed martial arts is big business in Las Vegas and not only with male fighters. The female fighters are a big draw too.

As I traveled across the Eastern seaboard on my vacation last week, I met many people who didn’t know me but wanted to talk to me because I was wearing a 49ers jacket. I was in Boston and New York with my wife for a friend’s wedding and all that I came in contact with would remark about the Niners and the Patriots not making the Super Bowl. The conversation would normally end in pleasantries and a good recommendation to either eat or a place to visit. I guess you can say it was an “ice breaker.”
In part one of this series on Wednesday, we heard Athletic Director of Pahranagat Valley, Brad Loveday, talks about a system he helped put in place. This system has brought nothing but consistency and oodles of state titles to the school.
