  • Play Like A Girl

    She saw her future team play from the sidelines as a cheerleader.
    Watching her brother play football, Olivia Yocum told her dad she wanted to play.
    She traded in her pom poms for a football helmet, and she feels right at home on the gridiron.
    Olivia, 8, is in her second season playing football for the Marion County Little Knights. She’s the only girl playing in the Marion County Youth League. But, she doesn’t give that a second thought.

  • Vaught Views: Rich Brooks'...

    By Larry Vaught

    Midway of the 2006 football season LSU not only beat Kentucky, it embarrassed Kentucky 49-0. The winners rolled up 546 yards while holding UK to 227.
    Some thought the loss might cost coach Rich Brooks his job — but his players told UK athletics director Mitch Barnhart they wanted him to stay.
    Kentucky had an open date before it played Mississippi State. That’s when sophomore receiver Dicky Lyons Jr. guaranteed that Kentucky was going to win the game — a boast that infuriated Brooks.

  • Field hockey state champ

    Rob and Nancy Spragens’ granddaughter, Abby Lala, played on the Christian Academy of Louisville state championship field hockey team. She is a freshman and started for them.

  • FOOTBALL: Knights finish winless...

    Wins had eluded both Marion County and Nelson County this season. The Cardinals hadn’t won since October of 2015. The Knights hadn’t won since last October.
    Not even pouring rain and dropping temperatures could take away the sweet taste of victory when one of these teams finally got over the hump Friday evening.
    Nelson County defeated Marion County 26-6 in Bardstown as the Cardinals avoided back-to-back winless campaigns while sending the Knights to their second winless season in three years.

  • Definitely devoted

    On College GameDay back on Oct. 21, former college and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow gave a rousing pep talk to Tennessee, who was preparing to face top ranked Alabama. The Volunteers were heavy underdogs against the mighty Crimson Tide. Thirty-point underdogs to be exact. That didn’t matter to Tebow, who delivered an impassioned speech directly at the Vols.

  • Vaught’s Views: UK is counting...

    By Larry Vaught

    Hamidou Diallo almost left Kentucky after one semester for the NBA before deciding to stay at UK. Now he’s being counted on as UK’s most explosive — and one of its most experienced players even though he’s yet to play in a regular-season game — this season.
    No one doubts his athleticism. He had the best numbers of any Wildcat at the preseason combined for NBA scouts.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights win...

    The Elizabethtown Panthers showed off their dominating firepower in the regional semifinals, defeating the Lady Knights in three sets, 19-25, 16-25, 17-25, on Oct. 25 at Nelson County High School.
    “We knew Elizabethtown would be a handful because of how well they played this season,” Head Coach David Hibbard said. “The simple story is, they just had too much firepower for us to handle and we couldn't score enough points in return.”

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights’ season...

    Only down 1-0 at the half, Greg Conley believed his team could stay competitive. Not only that, but he also believed they had a shot to get the win and keep a season of twists and turns alive for at least one more game.
    Showing fight but not able to find the back of the net, Marion County went down in a 3-0 loss to the Nelson County Cardinals on Oct. 16 in the regional tournament at Elizabethtown High School.

  • Football: Knights finish winless...

    The Taylor County Cardinals broke habit, abandoning the wishbone formation in favor of the spread. It gave their cross-county rival fits and sent them one loss away from their second winless season in three years.
    The Cardinals racked up 335 rushing yards and ran away with a 35-0 victory over Marion County on Friday in Campbellsville.
