 Kenton Ridge doesn’t have enough golfers to field a girls team for the first time in 15 years.

HS Football: Catholic Central short on players, but not expectations
 Catholic Central football coach Mike McKenna gained a new appreciation for his predecessor, Steve DeWitt, after replacing him last year. Although he was an Irish assistant for 25 years, McKenna didn’t realize how much off-field duty the job required. There’s always mounds of paperwork, of course. And he’s the first person...

WSU’s Davis ready for new basketball venture
 Steven Davis spent five years at Wright State and was enjoying himself so much that he was hoping to stay even longer.

Golf: Springfield High School junior wins City Amateur
 Luke Wells ended a streak of 15 straight pars over two days at the City Amateur when he pulled his drive into a hazard on Reid North’s 13th hole in the final round Sunday.

Catholic Central freshman Addie Engel a 3-state rarity
 The goal for Catholic Central freshman Addie Engel was always to be a well-rounded athlete. That’s something she picked up at home.
