  • Cotton's Corner 8-17-11

    Henry Howard “Cotton” Abell, 94, first started taking pictures when he was 10 years old. He won a kite-flying contest and the first prize was a box camera. He continued taking pictures until a few years ago due to macular degeneration. Cotton took most of the photos featured in Cotton’s Corner, but his first cousin, Bill Abell, also took some. Bill gave Cotton his slides when he moved to Louisville in the 1950s. Some of the photos in Cotton’s collection were also taken by Huley Browne. Browne’s widow, Violet, gave Cotton his slides after he passed away.

    “I was pleased with the results of this week, even though we still aren’t playing our best golf,” Head Coach Chad Spalding said. “It is still very early in the season and look for our guys to continue to improve in the next few weeks.”

    Friday evening the Marion County High School girls soccer team began their season with the first of two scrimmages. Their opponent was Mercer County, and the home team dropped the contest 4-0.
    “Collectively, we are not in game shape as a team and we must work harder in practice and become better conditioned,” Head Coach Hart Hagan said.
    From a defensive standpoint, the team isn’t working together as a unit, according to Hagan.

  • Early soccer games will be off campus

    On the schedule they are listed as home games. But, for now, the St. Catharine College soccer schedule, for both men and women, won’t actually be played at “home” but instead at Nelson County High School and/or Bardstown High School.
    The move is due to the construction on campus that will result in a refurbished Barber Soccer Field with a nine lane track encircling it. Adjacent to the soccer/track facility will be six new tennis courts. The project was due to be completed by the beginning of soccer season but incessant spring rains delayed the completion.
