Ryle softball's Maclai Branson maclai

UNION - It's becoming a bit of a routine in Ryle Raider land that when one of the softball players gets a hit, everyone looks for a leprechaun.

If someone hits a double or triple, either seniors Morgan Smith or Maclai Branson will yell from the dugout, "If ya'll see a leprechaun, say 'yeah!,'" and all the girls raise their hands in the air. 

This team-bonding silliness has made leprechauns the theme of the 2018 softball season, courtesy of an old video on YouTube where broadcasters are reporting leprechaun sightings. Should any of the ladies actually capture one (as folklore tells us), there's no need for a hidden pot of gold or three wishes to secure the Irish fairy's release.

They don't need luck when they have captain Maclai (pronounced Mah-clay) Branson, a University of Kentucky commit who is considered one of the top 20 players in the state of Kentucky. In fact, she's on the Premier Girls Fastpitch Central Region All-American watch list.

Switching top players to doubles helps Ryle win first 9th Region championship in girls tennis tennis

Instead of competing for a second consecutive 9th Region title in girls singles, Ryle junior Elizabeth Hamilton agreed to play doubles with newcomer Hali Mae Laurino in this year’s tournament.

It was a gamble that produced historic results. Hamilton and Laurino became their school’s first regional doubles champions and their victory in Thursday’s finals clinched Ryle’s first-ever regional team title in tennis.

Ryle makes second-half comeback against Simon Kenton to post first girls state tournament victory Maddie S

By Terry Boehmker
NKyTribune sports reporter

The Ryle girls’ basketball team got off to shaky start in its state tournament debut Thursday and trailed for most of the first half. But the Raiders rallied in the second half and defeated Simon Kenton, 61-56, in the final first-round game of the St. Elizabeth Healthcare/KHSAA “Sweet 16” at BB&T Arena.

Sophomore guard Maddie Scherr led the Raiders’ comeback. After picking up her third foul early in the third quarter, she remained in the game and scored 14 of her game-high 21 points in the second half.

Boone County Schools Statement on Copy-Cat Threats logo

Boone County Schools is one of many school districts across the country that is being subjected to copy- cat threats of the school tragedy in Florida.  We are working with local authorities as they investigate a recent rash of rumors and threats on our campuses.  Student suspects in each of the cases were immediately identified and apprehended.  They were charged by local authorities and disciplined by their schools.   In each case a thorough investigation was conducted by the school district and authorities.  No student or staff member was ever in danger. Confidentiality laws prevent Boone County Schools from talking about the persons involved or the specifics of the incidents. Boone County Schools will continue to remain on alert, following our safety protocols and working with the Boone County Sheriff’s Department and Florence Police as future issues arise.

Medical degree comes first for Ryle senior Jake Chisholm Jake Chisholm

UNION - Paging Dr. Chisholm.

As good a running back as Jake Chisholm has been in his career, he wants to be even better at helping people someday as a doctor.

That is why Chisholm, the Ryle senior running back, committed to play football for the University of Dayton this week. He tweeted his decision Jan. 2. 

“The biggest thing that really attracted me to Dayton was the premed degree they had,” he said. “I had my official visit a month ago, sat down with a professor. She took me through all the classes I would take. She told me about getting into medical school. That was the biggest thing for me.”

Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. Day

The Meaning of The King Holiday

BY CORETTA SCOTT KING

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday celebrates the life and legacy of a man who brought hope and healing to America. We commemorate as well the timeless values he taught us through his example — the values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service that so radiantly defined Dr. King’s character and empowered his leadership. On this holiday, we commemorate the universal, unconditional love, forgiveness and nonviolence that empowered his revolutionary spirit.

We commemorate Dr. King’s inspiring words, because his voice and his vision filled a great void in our nation, and answered our collective longing to become a country that truly lived by its noblest principles. Yet, Dr. King knew that it wasn’t enough just to talk the talk, that he had to walk the walk for his words to be credible. And so we commemorate on this holiday the man of action, who put his life on the line for freedom and justice every day, the man who braved threats and jail and beatings and who ultimately paid the highest price to make democracy a reality for all Americans.

Solar Eclipse

eclipse

Important Information about the Solar Eclipse

On Monday August 21st, 2017 we will experience a total solar eclipse, an event that hasn’t occurred over the U.S. mainland since 1979.  A total solar eclipse, which is when the moon completely covers the sun, will occur across 14 states in the continental U.S. along a 70-mile-wide swath of the country.  While Boone County is not located in this area, we will still be able to view the partial solar eclipse.

This event will be an extraordinary educational opportunity for our students.  Many of our schools will have special activities or lessons planned for this day to accompany the event.  While this event is extremely exciting for our students, we must also acknowledge the importance of proper eye safety.  While it should be common sense not to stare directly at the sun with your naked eyes, this advice will be even more important during this event.  The eclipse must be viewed only through proper eclipse glasses.  Schools with planned viewing activities will require students to wear proper solar eclipse glasses.

In order to protect our students’ eyes during this event:

  • Students will not participate in any unstructured outdoor activities, including recess
  • Students will be advised to not look directly at the sun without wearing solar eclipse glasses
  • We will provide additional personnel until 4pm for parents who do not want their children riding the bus during the eclipse.Children who do not ride the bus for that reason will have to be picked up by parents at 4pm.
Fee Payment & Schedule Pickup Dates

Student schedules may be picked up by the following schedule: 

Seniors - Monday, August 7 from 9am - 12pm

Juniors - Monday, August 7 from 2 - 5pm

Sophomores - Tuesday, August 8 from 9am - 12pm
