  • Shepherd picks baseball, then...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Recruiting baseball players to small programs, even one as successful as Campbellsville University has, isn’t always about shoe leather hitting the road, at least not now in the day of video.

  • Minyard decides on hoops future...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Unlike many high school seniors, Bullitt Central's Seaera Minyard had to go through a lengthy checklist even before she started the process of selecting a college to attend.
     First and foremost, Minyard had to decide which sport she wanted to pursue at the next level. Or, she had to decide how many sports to consider.
     As is often the case, those things worked themselves out. When Minyard started talking to college basketball and softball coaches, she was getting better financial aide from basketball.

  • McKnight headed to Centre to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Unlike some college seniors, Bullitt Central's Kaitlyn McKnight said that the recruiting process was never difficult for her.
     That was probably why McKnight was smiling throughout a ceremony this spring in the Bullitt Central library as she signed to play her college basketball at Centre College in Danville.
     McKnight will follow the same path as her high school coach. Bryan Bates also attended Centre College.
