Recovery on the mind of Owls (10/03/03)
Was last week's 42-6 loss at Rock Bridge "an aberration," as Marshall head coach Paul Thomas believes, or the sign of drift in the Owls? That's the question which MHS hopes to answer during today's Homecoming clash with NCMC rival Kirksville.

Lady Vikings pick up road shutout (10/03/03)
