It was quite a year for the local athletes.
Six state titles were handed out in 2002 and at least one person from each local high school got to bring home some hardware.
While Western Hills senior Mandy Goins' championship wasn't in conjunction with the Kentucky High School Athletic Association, it proved to be on an even bigger scale.
Not only did Goins win the 2002 Women's Kentucky State Am, she also won a national American Junior Golf Association tournament in Ohio, also in June.
Goins' efforts leave little doubt as to Frankfort's top sports story of the year.
Here's a look at The State Journal's picks for Frankfort's sports stories of the year for 2002.
