  • All-stars win two at state

    The 11- and 12-year-old Marion County Little League All-Star team made the trip to Prestonsburg to begin pool play in the 2012 state tournament Saturday. The team played pool play games Saturday night and Sunday night, and played the third pool play game last night. The locals were able to easily defeat Anderson County on Saturday, 10-0, and beat Fleming-Neon on Sunday, 6-2. These two wins guarantee the locals a semifinal game tonight, unless the locals lost last night by more than 15 runs to Knox County and Anderson County defeated Fleming-Neon by more than 15 runs.

  • Change of pace

    In the last column I wrote, I ended by saying that watching the All-Stars play several nights in district and state competition made me miss playing myself.  Well, last weekend, I was able to play two days of softball, satisfying my craving for a while at least.

  • President's Cup stays in Lebanon

    The Lebanon Country Club and Lincoln Homestead State Park golfers squared off to decide who would take home the 14th annual President's Cup this past weekend. Last year, the team from Lebanon took home the cup, and would need to merely split the points with the Springfield squad to retain the cup. Heading into the 2012 challenge, the Springfield team held a 7-6 overall advantage in total cup wins. On Saturday, the two teams played the best ball and scramble portions of the challenge in Springfield and finished up with the alternate shot and individual portions in Lebanon.
