A Year Of Championships, Records,
and Wonderful Memories
We will always remember 2007 as the year of great
achievements, record setting performances, eight
incredible seniors, and a championship season.
The 2006-07 Mustangs entered the new year with
an impressive 11-1 record, having lost only by three
points to Lexington Catholic 53-50 in the Fifth-Third
Bob Rowe's JVs were 7-1 after beating Lexington
Catholic, Highlands, and McNick. The freshmen
were 9-3 with wins over Campbell County, Lexington
Catholic, and Boone County.
God was in his heaven and all was right with the
The varsity waltzed through the first two games of the MCIT with wins over Montgomery County and
Campbell County for the second time that season, before being rocked back to reality by the Mason
County Royals in the MCIT finals 56-33 and then on Janaury 18th were shocked at Pendleton County by
the 3-8 Wildcats - 61-58.
As the Mustangs regrouped and rolled through the 10th Region All
"A" Classic for the fifth consecutive time they anticipated the return of
Nathan Mutsch, who had sustained a sprained hand, to their ranks for
our annual assault on Richmond in quest of the "A" State Holy Grail.
When they got the word that our primary power forward wouldn't
be available and they were faced with the impossible job of playing a
gruelling four-game battery of the state's top Class "A" competition
with a makeshift seven man lineup, it only seemed to further their
resolve and they won it anyway.
It was the things of which legends are made of as they banded
together to overcome adversity and with the coming-out of previously
unheralded Bryan Niemeyer, and under the direction of Head Coach
Mike Code, got the job done.
After beating NCC for second time in ten days, but again failing to
match up with the region's top ranked Mason County Royals, the
Mustangs enjoyed a magical night in Park Hills as Jimmy Uebel
scored a career high 28 points, and Troy Cooper joined the 1,000
Point Club in upending the 9th Region kingpin, Covington Catholic
Colonels 63-56 to claim the Number One Ranking in Northern
Kentucky for themselves, for the second time in three years.
A win over the valiant, Corey Pelle led Silver Grove Big Trains, and a
come-from-the-clouds 55-54 win over Scott and the '07 Mustangs
improved to 27-4 and were back-to-back 37th District Champions.
A win over Deming in the opening round of the 10th Region
Tournament set the stage for our third try at the seemingly invincible
Mason County Royals on a Saturday afternoon in the Fieldhouse
where the guttiest team to ever wear Brossart unifroms ended their
careers with a 63-57 loss,despite Josh Kidney's 17 point fourth
quarter effort as he single-handedly tried to extend the '07 Mustangs'
They finished with a school record 28 wins and 5 loss record, with
three of those losses coming to Mason County.
Nathan Mutsch and Troy Cooper signed Division I College Baseball and Track scholarships and each of
the '07 basketball Mustangs received or were offered college scholarships to continue their academic or
athletic careers in college.
Spring arrived and Bob Rowe's baseball Mustangs put up 25 wins, another "A" Regional title, and
repeated as 37th District Champs before losing a heartbreaking 3-2 regional semi-finals game to Harrison
Troy Cooper, Ben Ridder, and Mitch Patterson went to Track Season where they would earn their
second State Champioship rings of the year.
In late May Troy Cooper, Jimmy Uebel, Nathan Mutsch, Josh Kidney, Kyle Kramer, Bryan Niemeyer,
Matt Lloyd, and Luke Rebholz graduated from Bishop Brossart High School after leaving their marks on
this school in such a manner as to leave us wondering when, if ever, we will see another group of
similar athletes with the talent, the heart, the will-to-win, the ability to refuse-to-lose, and the sheer
determination to overcome adversity as these guys possessed.
Since the onset of the 2007-08 season their successors have found how big those shoes are to fill and
are busy gaining the experience needed to follow in their footsteps on their own stage. The soccer team
went to the regional semi-finals and the golf team came up a single stroke short of repeating as regional
champs or runners-up for the fourth consecutive time. Although suffering growing pains, our first year
of varsity football was a lot of fun.
2007 - It was a very good year!!!!
