Caverna High School Wins 2017 Battles in the Bluegrass
Beating out seven other Kentucky high schools, Hart County’s Caverna High School has been named the 2017 Bluegrass Cellular Battles in the Bluegrass winner. Throughout October and November, fans from each participating school went to Bluegrass’s social media pages to choose their favorite “Play of the Game.” With over 6,900 votes, Caverna earned the coveted title, as well as $2,000 toward its athletic department.
Battles in the Bluegrass is an annual initiative aimed at strengthening and growing local high school athletic programs in Central Kentucky. Each of the eight schools that participated from the Central Kentucky region received $750.
This is the seventh year Bluegrass Cellular has given eight local high schools a chance to compete in featured rivalry games. A play from each game was uploaded to Bluegrass Cellular’s social channels, where fans were then encouraged to vote for their favorite “Play of the Game.” In a bracket-style tournament, Caverna’s fans ran away with the vote total, leading their team to victory. The winning “Play of the Season” featured quarterback Drew Rhodes completing a long pass to wide receiver Sincere Page for a 60-yard gain.
“This was a hard-fought season filled with top-notch teams,” said Barry Nothstine, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Bluegrass Cellular. “We look forward to watching each of these athletic programs as they continue to grow and excel.”
“Caverna High School was proud and honored to be selected by Bluegrass Cellular to be a part of Battles in the Bluegrass,” said Bryan Priddy, Athletic Director for Caverna High School. “Our small school and community showed Big Colonel Pride the past couple months. Our school is thrilled and grateful to receive money for our athletic department and great praise from Bluegrass Cellular. We truly appreciate it.”
The Caverna High School football team was presented with the $2,000 check and swag bags on January 5 during a pep rally.
