▪  Two Kentucky-born kickers were named Special Teams Player of the Week in the Mid-South Conference on Monday.

Joe Rose, a former Anderson County player, was named the East Division’s recipient for the second time this season after going 6-for-6 on extra-point attempts in Cumberlands’ 42-7 win over Cincinnati Christian. Jared Dougherty, a Lindsey Wilson freshman out of Highlands, won his first honor in the West Division after going 7-for-7 on PATs in the Blue Raiders’ 49-35 win against Georgetown College.

▪  Lindsey Wilson quarterback Dylan Beasley was named the West’s Offensive Player of the Week after throwing a school-record six TDs and rushing for another. Beasley threw 41 TDs and for more than 4,500 yards as a senior at Nelson County.

▪  Kentucky volleyball freshman Lead Edmond, who starred at Paul Laurence Dunbar, was named Freshman of the Week in the Southeastern Conference after recording her first career double-doubles in UK’s matches against Marquette (17 kills, 10 digs) and St. Louis (11 kills, 10 digs) last weekend.

▪  Western Kentucky sophomore Billy Tom Sargent, an All-State golfer at Scott County in 2012 and 2013, earned his first collegiate win after co-medaling at the Sam Hall Intercollegiate in Hattiesburg, Miss., this week. Sargent shot a 5-under 208 over three days, a score boosted by a 65 in the opening round on the par-71 course. That was the lowest single-round score by a WKU golfer since 2008.
