Kat Nigro participating in U.S. National Camp

Kathryn Nigro jumps over an opposing player to keep after the ball in a girls soccer game.

Overton County’s Kathryn Nigro has had a busy soccer summer.

She first had success at the U.S. Youth Soccer Southern Regionals for Kathryn Nigro, where 92 College women’s coaches and 73 College men’s coaches participated in the event.

Her club coach, Jon Baker, Maryville College women’s coach, said, “It is a great opportunity for the serious soccer player to be seen. We collected many business cards from interested college coaches”.

A week after that event, Nigro traveled to Alabama with her Tennessee State Olympic Development Program (ODP) team. She was involved in intense training sessions with highly competitive games afterwards. The sessions were attended by 550 ODP players representing Tennessee, Alabama, Alaska, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, all competing for a spot on the ODP Region 3 Team.

After the week was done, the list of the 33 players that made the team was posted, and Kathryn Nigro was the only U-14 girl from Tennessee chosen for the team. She was held over with her new teammates to continue further training and games. She was also selected to play her first international game in Mexico.

The following day, after returning home to Tennessee, Nigro received a call from United States Soccer Federation (USSF) to inform her that she was chosen to participate in the U.S. National Camp to compete for a spot on the U.S. National Team. They were going to fly her to Cal Poly in California at the end of July.

Kathryn Nigro said, “I have worked for 4 years to achieve this goal, I missed many school and church functions, family trips and social gatherings, so that I could train to be the best with the talent the Lord has given me, to do what I love most – soccer.

“I will humbly accept this invitation and work hard to make my family, my state, and the Lord proud.”

Tech Football Photo Day set for Friday

Tennessee Tech Football Coach Watson Brown’s Golden Eagles will step onto the new turf of Tucker Stadium for its annual Photo Day on Friday, Aug. 3, beginning at 10 a.m.

The event is free, and the public is encouraged to attend to meet the new coaching staff and this year’s Golden Eagle players.

The team will assemble at 10 a.m. for its official team photo. After that, individual and group photos will be taken, and fans will have the opportunity to meet the players and staff, take pictures, and get autographs.

Unlike past years when the Photo Day was held two or three weeks into fall camp, Brown has slated the event for the first full day on campus for his squad. The team is scheduled to report on Thursday evening, Aug. 2.

“Photo Day for me is an exciting time because it gives us a chance to meet new fans, see old friends, and visit with families,” Brown said. “It also signals the start of fall camp, so it’s an important time for our players.

“They know when they get finished with photos, they are ready to get down to the business of preparing for the first game.”

Season tickets for the 2007 Golden Eagle 6-game home schedule are on sale. Fans can order tickets by calling the Tennessee Tech Athletics Ticket Office at (931) 372-3940, or can go online at TTUsports.com.

The Golden Eagles open the season Thursday, Aug. 30 at Eastern Illinois, and the first home game is Thursday night, Sept. 6, against Cumberland University.
