Rutland Middle Back at Normal Security Level

Rutland Middle School is back on "code green" today and the school is operating normally, according to school district spokeswoman Stephanie Hartley.

The school's security level was heightened earlier this week after rumors spread through the school and the community about trouble on campus.

David Gowan, Director of Risk Management for Bibb County Schools, said the rumors are false. He said they were sparked by discovery of a discarded sweatshirt hood with holes cut in it.

Gowan is at the school today and he said they're still investigating the incident.

Athlete of the Week: Kayla Steele

Kayla Steele knows how to really shuffle on the tennis court.

Lynn Monk, Tattnall Square's tennis coach, says, "She's just a natural athlete. She can do whatever she sets her mind to. She picked up a racket and never played before, and right now she's playing in my number one singles spot."

Valdosta State picked up on Steele's softball skills and inked a deal with the senior to play infield for the Blazers.

Her senior year, Steele stole 22 bases, broke the Trojan's single-season batting average record and ended the season with no strike-outs.

Steele says, "Just don't slack off at all. Go out every day with a purpose."

She's not just talking about athletics. Steele puts up some impressive stats in the classroom too. She has a 3.95 GPA and has only made one B in four years of high school.

She says, "It boosts your self-esteem knowing you can get it done in the classroom and you can also get it done on the field."
