  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights gearing...

    Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin advanced to the Fifth Region Tournament last season, which was his fifth season coaching the Marion County Knights.
    He's looking to go further in his sixth.
    "The expectations are high this season," Irvin said. "The core of our team is back, and with everyone back, we're looking to revisit region and go a little further. We knew we were going to take our bumps and bruises last season. Being young, we had to grow up quickly. I felt we did a great job of that."

  • The Shakeup

    Now the chaos has perhaps finally begun to ensue in college football. Perhaps the "Saturday Shakeup" is fitting in describing what occurred on Saturday, as three of the four teams ranked in the top four of the college football playoff rankings fell. Alabama was the lone team of the four to escape Saturday unscathed, soundly defeating Mississippi State 51-3.

    Todd Spalding knew Jordan Thomas was something special when he coached the Bethlehem senior softball player when she was 10 years old.
    “I was coaching a 14-year-old travel team and she was on that team,” he said. “I told myself right then that she would be the first NCAA Division I player that I ever coached.”
    Spalding’s prediction came through on Friday when Thomas signed a letter of intent to play softball at Western Kentucky University.

  • Woods and Waters: Local hunters...

    My definition of ironic: Spending hours, days, weeks scouting the woods for deer while a giant deer gets hit by a truck right by Wal-Mart!
    Last Monday, a reported nine-pointer was hit and killed a couple hundred yards from the stoplight at Wal-Mart. It hurts, it really hurts!

  • Vaught’s Views: UK sorority...

    By Larry Vaught

    As soon as Matthew Mitchell saw former Wayne County standout Jessica Hardin play last summer, he wondered why he had not signed her out of high school. Instead, she went to Bellarmine for a year (she hit 52 three-pointers and shot 40 percent from three-point range as a freshman) before transferring to Kentucky to just be a regular student.

  • The Playoff

    The College Football Playoff Committee released its first ranking of the season on Tuesday, Nov. 1, and the top four teams at the end of the season will play in the College Football Playoff, which has been in place since the end of the 2014 season. The playoff replaced the BCS system, which used computer and human rankings to select two teams to play in the national championship.
