Photo correction
Southern Wells’ Taylor Estes was incorrectly identified as Marissa Geimer in a photo at the top of page six in Thursday’s News-Banner. Estes was the girl competing in the 100-meter low hurdles instead of Geimer. The News-Banner regrets the error and apologizes for any inconvenience it may have caused.
