    Coming off a hot start to the season in which they grabbed two wins and 14 goals, the Knights hosted the Bardstown Tigers on Aug. 25. The Knights dropped this match, 3-0, their first loss of the season.

  • Diving deep, getting into a good...

    I read a lot of outdoor themed magazines and books for several reasons. Mostly it’s for pure enjoyment. I can imagine myself hunting mountain goat, elk, bear, deer or anything else the story centers on. While I consider it a gift, a lot of people consider my ability to mentally insert myself into a story just a little strange.
    As a result of inserting myself deeply into a story, I often wonder if I actually did some of the things I wrote about. Or, maybe I’m just living someone else’s adventure. Then again, it could be simple plagiarism.

    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.
