The year that was 2009 was quite an adventure here in the Monroe Times sports department. From following numerous teams to state tournament berths to trying to reach a new nightly deadline, which was implemented back in the spring, sports reporter Mark Nesbitt and I have barely had time to sleep.Trying to pick the top 10 local sports stories from the past calendar year was even harder. Together, we came up with 21 stories we thought were worthwhile, then allowed the entire office to vote.
