Merriwether Middle School honor student Keeley Marchant has another feather in her athletic cap, by way of her latest football achievement - a 36-yard field goal on the Mustangs' behalf.

The 13-year-old placekicker booted her way onto the scoreboard Oct. 11, in her squad's 27-17 loss at home against Northside, an undefeated squad from Greenwood. This was her first field goal of the season, in a game that also included two successful point-after-touchdown kicks. Her first came last season, a 27-yarder.

A daughter of Wayne and Amy Marchant, she has her latest feat displayed on You Tube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADDoZUomJJo.
