Former Purple earns All-America accolades
Former Bowling Green High School standout Tori Dillard has been named a second-team All-American by D3Soccer.com.
Dillard, a junior defender for Centre College, was joined by Centre teammate Destinie Graves on the women’s soccer Division III All-America team. Graves, a junior forward, was a first-team selection.
This marks the second All-American honor for the duo, as both Graves and Dillard were named National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-Americans in December.
Graves and Dillard were also All-South Atlantic Region selections this season. Graves was named the Southern Athletic Association Offensive Player of the Year, while Dillard earned SAA Defensive Player of the Year honors.
Dillard anchored a Colonel defensive unit which allowed just 14 goals in 24 games this season. She finished with a goal and five assists on the year. The Colonels posted 15 shutouts on the season and allowed more than one goal in a game on just five occasions.
Centre is coming off its best season in program history, advancing to the NCAA Division III Final Four and finishing with a 21-2-1 mark, a program record for wins.
Centre won its fourth straight SAA tournament crown and its third conference regular season championship in four years this season.

Saylor Nominated for The Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders
Cameron Saylor, a Freshman at Bowling Green High School is a Delegate of the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders in Lowell, MA on June 29th - July 1st, 2016.
The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who are passionate about science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). The purpose of this event is to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country who aspire to be scientists and technologists, to stay true to their dream and, after the event, to provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.
Cameron Saylor was nominated by the winner of the first Google Science Fair, Shree Bose - Academic Director of the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists - to represent Bowling Green High based on his academic achievement, leadership potential and passion for science and technology.
During the three-day Congress, Cameron will join students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science Winners talk about leading scientific research; be given advice from deans of the world's top tech universities; be inspired by fellow teen science prodigies; and learn about cutting-edge advances and the future of science and technology.
"This is a crucial time in America when we need more nimble-minded and creative scientists and technologists who are even better prepared for a future that is changing exponentially,” said Richard Rossi, Executive Director, National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists. “Focused, bright and determined students like Cameron Saylor are our future and he deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give him.”
The Academy offers free services and programs to students who have the desire to learn more about their future in science or technology. Some of the services and programs the Academy offers include online social networks through which future scientists and technologists can communicate; opportunities for students to be guided and mentored by tech and science leaders; and communications for parents and students on college acceptance and finances, skills acquisition, internships, career guidance and much more.
The Academy was founded on the belief that science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education plays a critical role in enabling the United States to remain the economic and technological leader of the global marketplace of the 21st century and that we must identify prospective talent at the earliest possible age and help these students acquire the necessary experience and skills to take them to the doorstep of vital careers. Based in Washington, DC and with an office in Boston, MA, the Academy was chartered as a nonpartisan, taxpaying institution to help address this crisis by working to identify, encourage and mentor students who wish to devote their lives to advances in society as scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.- See more at: http://www.b-g.k12.ky.us/News/22871#sthash.scsPeE2U.Al3QLJQM.dpuf
