Colonels struggled early, never recovered
The Whitley County Colonels stumbled out of the gate to start 2013 and never seemed to fully recover — literally and figuratively.
Leading the way
The soccer season may not have gone exactly as planned for Todd White and the South Laurel Lady Cardinals, but that didn’t stop junior Karli Parker from receiving some postseason accolades.
Who will take over Whitley Co. football?
In case you don’t keep up with Tri-County sports on a daily basis, Whitley County’s head football coach for the past eight seasons (Jim Black) tendered his resignation Monday.
Last men standing
The first round of the playoffs wasn't a good one for Tri-County teams. Yep, we are down to only two teams (Corbin and Williamsburg) after seeing Knox Central, Lynn Camp, North Laurel and Whitley County fall during their respective class' playoff games this past Friday.
Just three days after the book was officially closed on the Whitley County Colonels’ 2013 football season, Jim Black’s eight-year tenure as head coach of the team also ended.
Local athletes fare well at state cross country meet
Saturday’s KHSAA Cross Country Championships went off without a hitch as several local runners posted strong showings in the event.
All good things must come to an end and such was the fact Friday for the Whitley County Lady Colonels (32-8) volleyball team.
One of the best seasons in North Laurel history was not supposed to end on a cold night in Hazard. But the team that fell to Perry Central 28-15 wasn’t quite the same team that tied the school record for eight wins.
Williamsburg isn’t flying under the radar anymore
While Corbin, Knox Central and North Laurel were grabbing most of the headlines during regular season play, Jerry Herron's Williamsburg Yellow Jackets were patiently flying under the radar because of two losses to teams that are now a combined 19-3 on the season.
Before the first four minutes of the game had been played the Williamsburg Yellow Jackets had already enabled a running clock for their game with the Jenkins Cavaliers, taking an early 35-0 first quarter lead which culminated in a 58-0 blowout in the first round of the KHSAA Class 1A Gridiron Bowl.
