It didn't take Amy Kittle long to make an impact at Buckeye Trail. As a freshman, the four-year starter averaged over 10 points, four rebounds and 2 assists per game.

She only got better with time and as a senior ended her career with over 1,200 points, fifth all-time in school history.

College coaches were quick to take notice, where Thursday the District Player of the Year signed the dotted line to play at NAIA Malone College in Canton, Ohio.

She's no Erica Hoyt, but Jen Klutts has quickly become Muskingum's saving grace.

Muskingum head coach Donna Newberry knew replacing the OAC's best pitcher of all-time would be tough. What she never imagined was who she'd have to call upon to fill the void.

A senior, Klutts has come a long way from her hometown in Michigan and even further from the last spot on the bench. After sitting out her freshman season with injury, Klutts only pitched 3.1 innings in the last two...

New Lexington had its big names this year enroute to the school's best ever record on the gridiron.

Jerry Robinson and Travis Cook were the guys everyone knew. The duo scored most of the points, racked up all of the yards and were featured nearly every night on WHIZ's Post Game Party Highlight Show.

However, more times than not, the guy making the biggest difference on defense was Alex Kay. Undersized at 6'1", the senior defensive end/tackle was totaled 76 tackles this...
