  • The wage gap

    By Bailey Foxworth
    Sports correspondent

    In my house, Sundays are for two things: Jesus and football, and last Sunday was no exception. I went to church, then drove to my dad’s house to watch the Bengals teach the Chargers a lesson in passing completion.
    Now, I’m a huge fan of sports. I play sports; I watch sports; I plan on forcing encouraging my kids to play sports when I have them. However, I have a few grievances with sports, namely the adversity women face.

  • Why take the easy route?

    By Gerard Flanagan

    Life, like sports, has its share of bumps in the road and its share of curveballs that throw you off your feet. You might not get that promotion. This certain girl may not like you back. In sports, maybe you lost on a last second touchdown, or things aren’t looking good for your team.  

  • Attitude is everything

    Sports are physically demanding.
    Well, duh.
    As someone who plays two sports at the college level, I’m practically a connoisseur of the physical demands of sport. I practice two to three times a day and compete almost every weekend. I’ve had my fair share of practices in extreme heat and the cold, injuries and days when I’ve had to give it my all when I’ve had no gas left in the tank.

    The math geeks out there are probably cringing at this if they’re reading this. One plus one equals one!
    While it doesn’t in the math world, if you’re in the sports world, one plus one does indeed equal one.

  • Don’t let the heat beat you

    By Bailey Foxworth

    When I woke up last Tuesday, I didn’t know exactly what the day would hold. I knew I’d have to go to practice, eat breakfast, go back to practice, eat lunch, go back to practice, take a nap and go back to practice again. Cross country preseason training only really consists of eating, sleeping and running.
    But sometimes, things don’t always go according to schedule.

  • The joys of practice

    “Don’t practice until you get it right. Practice until you can’t get it wrong.”   

    We talking about practice? Well, at least I am today.

    Writing is my life. It’s my passion. It’s my future. It’s full of adventure.
    When the publisher of The Lebanon Enterprise sent me an email asking if I was interested in a part-time position, I knew a great adventure was in store.
    Now I have the pleasure of introducing myself as the Enterprise’s newest sports correspondent, and I couldn’t be more excited.

  • A new chapter begins

     By Gerard Flanagan

    As we begin once more to go about our daily lives and start a new week, change is around us. Change is bound to hit us all at some point, whether we go back to school from summer break or move into a new house. Or start a new job, like I’m doing.

  • Saying good-bye

    Well it’s been real, and it’s been fun, and it’s just been real fun working here for The Lebanon Enterprise the past seven months, and I hate to say goodbye.
    As I move this weekend to Tennessee for school and soccer, I have to leave my job (sad face).
    I have had the joy of working here, writing columns, taking pictures, and writing stories as well as traveling to different places for sports events.

  • Up and at 'em

    Everyone loves summer, but the rain seems to be a constant problem in this state this year, and when it’s not raining, it’s at least in the high 90s.
    With this bipolar weather, there are chances you get to play outside or you don’t get to play outside.
