  • Winter sports

    By Casey Sowers

    No one is really fond of winter, but one thing to be excited about is the sports that come with it. What I mean by that is, there’s always an athletic event on TV, such as football, basketball, swimming or the Winter X-Games.

  • For the underdogs

    Have you ever heard of the movie “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story?” It’s about a bunch of “nobodies” that get together to win a dodgeball tournament. We’ve all heard of underdogs, and you probably know that they’re usually not the best. But what about when they win, especially when they beat a top ranked team?

  • Fans make the games

    You’ve got the regular “Hey, I’m going to the game tonight, fans,” and then you’ve got the “crazy, super, I-won’t-miss-a-game, fan.” 

    Which would you rather have at a game? 

  • Overcoming injuries

     After playing sports most of your life, you grow stronger as you grow up. As a serious athlete you push yourself until you can’t go any further. 

    You feel small pains, but you blow them off because you think, “Oh I won’t get hurt.” 

  • Male sports > female sports

    We’re all guilty of it.

    Most everyone enjoys male sports rather than female sports.

    You know it’s true.

    Some say hunting isn’t a sport and some say it is. Even though it’s not an “all-around-contact athletic event,” it’s still a sport to 12.5 million people, including1.2 million women. That’s 16 percent and the percentage keeps rising, according to womenanglers.us (http://goo.gl/RyKsw1).

  • See ya!

     As some of you may or may not already know, after two years and many photos and stories, I’m leaving The Lebanon Enterprise.

    Recently, I accepted a job with our neighboring county’s newspaper - The Springfield Sun. 

  • Winning season

     I have a confession to make. 

    When I made my way to Rockcastle County for the first and only game of the Marion County Knights’ postseason on Nov. 7, I had a feeling it would be their only night in the postseason. Though the team’s records were the same, the Rockets had a better district and region record. The feeling that Marion County was going to lose got worse when the Rockcastle County Rockets scored within the opening moments of the game. 

  • Mortal combat

    Though I play my fair share of violent video games, I’m far from a violent person – in fact, I don’t think I have a violent bone in my body. 

  • Bow your head and pray

    It’s time to bow your head and pray. 

    I’m no stranger to hearing prayers on the playing fields. Whether it’s turf under their feet or wood under their sneakers, when it comes to district or region play, more often than not, I’ll hear a prayer said by one or even both teams.
