New coach on board for Lady ‘Cats tennis

By the I-R staff

The Ellsworth tennis team has a new coach this year, Deb Talbott. She replaces Eric Anderson, who resigned earlier this year to take a job outside education.

As a result, Talbott is feeling her way in her first season as a Bearcat.

“As a 1st-year coach and new to the Ellsworth Ladies Tennis Program, it is difficult to say what changes will be beneficial to the team. We will take the season one day at a time and measure success based on current progress and performance rather than previous accomplishments,” Talbott said.

Guardians of the Ellsworth pool

It’s a 96-degree day and you decide to go cool off at the swimming pool.

While in the water, you hear a whistle blow and then see a lifeguard dive into the deep end to bring a child to the side. That is called a “save.”

The Ellsworth Swimming Pool lifeguards are there to do just that — to save you and your children from getting hurt or drowning.
