    Tyler Gross is a quiet leader, a consistent pitcher, a natural lineman and a blue-collar athlete. He makes sacrifices for the good of the team and does not seek recognition or glory for the work he puts in.

    These are some of the comments made by two of the coaches who know him best and among the reasons why Gross was selected as the 2011 Male Student-Athlete of the Year, an award sponsored by The News-Democrat and Earl Floyd Ford.

    When locals say the name “Hannah Devine,” the first images that come to mind are of a Lady Panther basketball player nailing 3-pointers from every spot outside the arch, driving hard to the basket and grabbing tough rebounds on the block.

    But what everyone may not know is that this same athlete puts in hours of extra time in the gym, earns a 4.0 grade average and is at the top of her junior class, and  volunteers much of her free time to helping others.

The Panthers were leading 8-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning when Zach Wise hit a three-run walk-off homerun over the fence in right-center field to end the game by run-rule. With the win, the Panthers automatically qualify to play in the 8th Region tournament at Simon Kenton High School.

    The teams were able to get through four complete innings the day before and were in the top of the fifth when heavy storms delayed the game to Tuesday.

    While they notched 11 hits to Gallatin’s 13 in the game, errors and a six-run third inning by the Lady Wildcats foiled their plan for a comeback.
