Lindquist, Hughes form historic combo
The first time Tahna Lindquist met Ila Hughes was on a soccer pitch. The two were in fifth grade, and Hughes had just moved from Phoenix, Arizona to the Emerald Isle. “They had the ugliest uniforms you have ever seen in your life,” said Tahna’s dad and coach, John. “I remember that, watching them run around and play soccer.” Lucky for John the duo decided to kick soccer to the curb. During the past four years, Lin...

Gizmo likes the King’s chances
