    Tyler Wilson named Independence Athlete of the Week


    Junior Tyler Wilson was named Independence Athlete of the Week for the week ending Sept. 29. Wilson had an outstanding season for the Independence Blue Devil golf team.

He also finished 13th out of 80 golfers at the sectional tournament and finished with a 39.6 stroke average and twice this season had a low score of 35.
