Senior athletes from Warren County must have realized there’s no better time than now to have plenty of gold.Warren County was well represented at the state Senior Olympics held in Williamson County July 13-19.Basketball proved to be the sport of choice for several local residents as the Lady Bulldogs roster brought back seven gold medals combined.The Lady Bulldog team, which consists of Carolyn Lance, Blanche Cook, Wanda Shanks and JoAn Cantrell, had no challengers in their 75+ age division and took gold by virtue of forfeit.Instead of going home unchallenged, the Lady Bulldogs suited up against three younger squads for exhibition games which will ensure the team a spot in the National Senior Olympics.While the team took gold without a sweat, Cantrell and Lance battled for the gold in the 75+ division of the free-throw competition. Cantrell won, hitting 9-of-10 from the charity stripe. Lance tied for second, making 8-of-10.
