      Scouts from Pack 345 at Pittman Park United Methodist Church and Pack 413 at Nevils United Methodist Church took the top three places in the Ogeechee District Pinewood Derby held recently at Metter High School. Thomas Freeman, from Pack 345, is the son of Steven and Beth Freeman of Statesboro, and he took first-place honors.

    Eli Hagan, from Pack 413, is the son of Jamie Hagan of Nevils, and he earned second place. Chase Hinson, also from Pack 345, is the son of Chris and Sherry Hinson of Statesboro, and he won third place. The Pinewood Derby is a racing event for Cub Scouts in the Boy Scouts of America. The scouts build their own cars from a block of wood, decorate them as they wish and then race in local Pinewood Derbies across the nation.
