PC Athletics offer new online college resources

Pendleton County Athletics is going to college, or at least on the Pendleton County Athletics website.

On the Pendleton County (PC) Athletics homepage on the right sidebar, you’ll find links to pages associated with PC Athletics. A new addition to the list is ‘Let’s Go To College - Cats’ College Corner.’

The page was designed to provide links for PC athletes and parents who are interested in playing at the next level in one location.

Pendleton County Athletic Director Keith Smith said PC Athletics wanted to honor the Ladycats and Wildcats who finished their high school career and continued on at the collegiate level.

“It takes hard work, determination and a special talent to be able to play at that level,” Smith said. “By honoring these special athletes we also provide some motivation to our present and future athletes that yes, Pendleton County athletes do advance to play at the next level.”

Current Ladycats and Wildcats wanting to add their name to the growing list of college athletes from Pendleton County will find links to the NCAA and NAIA Clearinghouse, a free recruiting seminar and an online recruiting service that PC Athletics pays a membership for all of their high school athletes.

CoreCourseGPA.com is a source of information for athletes and parents.  Each athlete can create a profile, put in grades from freshmen year on  and make sure they are on track to be academically eligible for college athletics. They can also search for colleges around the country at all levels who offer the sport the athlete is playing.

The PC Athletic Department is collecting pictures and biographies from former Ladycat and Wildcat athletes who have moved on to college athletics.  The department has started uploading them to the page and will continue to do so as it receives more entries.

If anyone played college sports after their PC Athletic career ended, they can send pictures and biography information to Keith Smith at Keith.Smith@pendleton.kyschools.us.
