I am dedicated to bringing you the best and the brightest of our namesake that
are involved in the world of sports and sports reporting.
There have been many Chastains that have influenced the sports stage and many more still are
in the collegiate and high school levels waiting to make their impact on the world of sports.
Keep current with these and other Chastain stats and rankings at:
Chestang Leads Cats
Perry Chestang, varsity quarterback for the Citronelle Wildcats of Citronelle Alabama, led his team to a 16-7 victory over Mary Montgomery
in the season opener between these two rivals.
After his defense blocked a punt in the end zone for a safety, Chestang went to work.
He was 10 of 15 for 104 yards and carried 11 times for 46 yards and two touchdowns.
His two scores were both off of 1-yard TD runs, each following a 30+ yard connection to his receiver, Skanes.
Third time is no charm for Catalina Castano
Just weeks after a hard fought loss in the finals at Budapest, Catalina Castano entered the center court
in Stockholm, Sweden to face Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia in the quarterfinals of
the Nordic Light Open.
This would be the third time these two players have met head to head in competition,
once in the quarterfinals at Acapulco in 2001, then again in the Semifinals at Bogotá the
following year. Srebotnik lead the contest 2-0.
Catalina had a powerful set and easily defeated Srebotnik 6-4. Srebotnik lost serve
to start the 2nd set. Catalina had match point at 5-3, but Srebotnik took it to deuce
four times as Catalina returned two into the net and double faulted. After a
questionable winning shot to bring the set to five all, Srebotnik pulled out the win
Catalina never regained the control and composure she had shown in the first set.
Having difficulty with her serves and making several errors, she ultimately lost the
set and match to Srebotnik 4-6, 7-5, 6-1.

Benny Chastain refuses to go quietly
Benny Chastain isn't just a rookie that's been around the circuit; he's
been around the block. He was the oldest qualifier in Gardendale, Alabama this year, racing against another rookie,
Justin South, who was born when Benny was only 45 years old.
Benny is a member of the White Motorsports Racing Team of Florida but has managed to sponsor most of his stockcar
dreams to date. He has spent almost $200,000 of his own retirement funds on equipment, crews and expenses while
winning a mere $11,000 in prize money, mostly from middle-of-the-pack finishes.
He's not just a dreamer. He's an achiever. He didn't just wake up one day, jump into some souped up Chevy and
start driving fast and turning left. He decided upon a dream and invested in it. He bought an old Monte Carlo
and entered a few local races on dirt tracks. He wrecked a lot and learned even more.
He tweaked the shocks, tires, springs and performance and started to place thirds, then seconds, then a first.
So he bought a newer, faster Chevy, and with the experience from the track and the knowledge of the equipment
he had gained, he managed to take 11 wins.
Once he decided to hit the asphalt tracks there was no stopping him. He forked out over $21,000 for driving
school in Atlanta and Charlotte, and ran into Drew White, former Busch series driver. Soon after their meeting,
Chastain had gained the experience and skill that allowed him to join the ARCA circuit.
He quickly transitioned from the old dirt tracks to the fast tracks of Daytona, Talladega and Pocono.
"God has a plan for me," Chastain said,
he just isn't sure what it is.
