  • Ivy Brown: Making the transition

     Ivy Brown has learned a lot at Western Kentucky University her freshman year, not only in the classroom where she’s studying to be a physical education teacher, but also on the basketball court where she has experienced just how different college play is from high school.

    “College basketball is about 10 times more physical than high school,” said the LaRue County High School graduate and last year’s Kentucky Miss Basketball. “I’ve also had to adjust my moves when playing against taller opponents.”

  • TRACK: For Young, discipline is...

    In any sport, the word “discipline” is spoken more often by coaches than any other word. Each and every sport requires a high level of self-discipline. For Randy Young, this quality has become evident over the last several years at LaRue County High School.

    That self-discipline has paid off in the classroom as well as Young is an outstanding student-athlete carrying a 4.0 grade point average. 

  • TENNIS: Donahue willing to pay...

    The great Vince Lombardi once said, “The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.” 

    For Karrington Donahue, a freshman tennis player for the LaRue County tennis program, the development of her game comes from her hard work and dedication to the game.

    The second-year tennis player found the love of the game by attending a summer tennis camp conducted by Coaches Allison McDowell and Terry Caven. 

  • WKU suspends diving program

    Western Kentucky suspended its swimming and diving program for five years, the school announced last week, in the wake of a university investigation that found the team violated the student code of conduct, discrimination and harassment policy following allegations of hazing and abuse.

    The 50-plus team members and coaches were informed of the decision by WKU President Gary Ransdell and athletic director Todd Stewart.
