When you think about soccer, think LCHS girls...

When you think about LC soccer, think about the Lawrence County High School Girls Team. Since their formation in 2009, they have built a legacy for future teams to uphold and have accomplished big things in their nine year existence. They have won seven District Championships, four Regional Championships, had four State Sweet Sixteen appearances and have been to the State Elite Eight three times.

The LCHS Girls Soccer Team have always been a close-knit group of players and friends. Each year they have team bonding activities in the summer to help the new players get acquainted with the returning players. The Team tie-dyes shirts, has a neighborhood scavenger hunt, has sleepovers, go out to eat together as well as make and deliver salads for their salad sale fundraisers.

Last Friday, June 15th was tie-dye night, but before they got started they added a short trip North on US 23 to present Plant Manager Steve Greene and the rest of the staff at Riverside Generating with a "Thank You" ball for their generous donation. The plant made a one time $1,000 donation this year to help send these talented young ladies to Morehead State University summer soccer team camp AND put in place an annual $1,500 donation to help send them to camp in the future, purchase equipment or use for other team necessities each year.

Riverside Generating will have a banner placed on the LC Soccer field so our community and visiting teams know that they are proud LC supporters. Thanks again to Riverside Generating for being "all in LC!"

FORMER UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY AND NBA STAR REX CHAPMAN TO SPEAK ON CHAMPIONSHIP SUNDAY

LOUISA, KY.  – The City of Louisa and RISEabove will host its third-annual HOOPS FOR HOPE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT AT LOCKVIEW PARK ON JUNE 22-24.

The five-on-five tournament will feature a men’s and women’s division. A $3,000 cash prize will be awarded to the men’s championship team. A cash prize will be awarded to the women’s championship team as well. It will be based on the number of teams in the tournament.

“This event is much more than a basketball tournament,” said RISEabove Board Chair Matt Brown. “This is a community event that is aimed to bring people together. The tournament will help us raise money for renovations to the LockView Park and help provide a better space for our children and families to enjoy.”

Brown, chief of staff at Addiction Recovery Care and a member of the Louisa City Council, along with Derek Hinkle, Daniel Ward, James Keeton, and Scott Robinson started RISEabove in 2015. Since its inception, it has raised more than $85,000. Monies raised have helped a variety of programs in and around Louisa, including medical expenses, food for low-income families, community events, and has raised money for addiction treatment.

The LockView Park is an example of RISEabove’s impact on Louisa. The organization has helped to renovate city parks, assist with feeding programs, provide a Christmas toy giveaway, fund a community Thanksgiving celebration, and assist families in dealing with cancer and other illnesses. Monies raised also help to provide alcohol and drug prevention programs.

“RISEabove is not an organization, it is a movement,” added Brown. “It is about demonstrating the power in unity and numbers. Together, we are making our community a better place to live, work, and raise a family.”

Former University of Kentucky and NBA star Rex Chapman will speak to the public on Championship Sunday (June 24) at 1:30 p.m.

“We are so excited to have Rex attend our event,” said Brown. “When you think about basketball in Kentucky, Rex is one of a handful of names that top the list.”
