Biles rolls to 3rd straight national title
Monday, August 24, 2015
INDIANAPOLIS — Simone Biles’ friends are running out of words to describe her almost as quickly as Biles is running out of competition. At the moment, there is none. And a year might not be enough time for the rest of the world to catch up. Battling perfection as much as the rest of the field, Biles soared to her third straight U.S.
Can Virginia State repeat?
Thursday, August 20, 2015

Prairie View A&M University's Blackshear Stadium was in rough shape for as long as Roy Perry can remember.
