    By Larry Vaught

    Tina Cobb was caught off guard when her son, Randall, called to tell her he had some “news” for her.
    Since he recently got married, she thought maybe he was going to tell her he was expecting a child. Instead, he told her he was being inducted in the Kentucky Athletics Hall of Fame in September.
    “We had never talked about this. It was a big surprise when he told me,” said Tina Cobb. “It was a total surprise to me.”

  • Stars shining bright in Miami

    The stars were shining bright in Miami. A 34-year old second baseman shined the brightest of them all, lifting his team to an extra-inning win last Tuesday. 
    In the 88th MLB All-Star Game, Robinson Cano homered off Chicago Cubs pitcher Wade Davis to lead off the 10th inning and the American League team defeated the National League team 2-1 at Marlins Park. The AL clinched its fifth straight victory in the star-studded affair that was dominated by superb pitching instead of powerful slugging. 

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Hoppes wins...

    He was there just for the experience. 
    He got a lot more than he bargained for.
    Nate Hoppes, a sophomore at Marion County High School, recently competed in the Regional Junior Olympics at Cedarville University in Ohio July 6-8. Hoppes won the decathlon event, scoring 3,835 points and winning in his age group in the event by 632 points.

    The Marion County 8-10-year-old Little League Softball All-Stars are state champions. 
    Behind three strikeouts from Gracyn Mattingly and a four-run fifth inning, Marion County clinched the state title in LaGrange with a 4-2 win over Boyd County.
    "This was an outstanding, hard fought championship game by both teams," Head Coach Jim Reed said. "Gracyn pitched great. Defensively, we had a stellar performance, but offensively we couldn't get much going. Boyd County is a very well coached team."

    “I am excited for these girls to get to be a part of this experience and represent the state of Kentucky against other state champions," Head Coach Joe Browning said.

  • Vaught’s Views: Romeo Langford...

    By Larry Vaught

    He might not have played as well or as much as he wanted — and a minor injury contributed to that — during the FIBA Under 19 World Cup, but that won’t impact the way New Albany (Indiana) guard Romeo Langford will finish the summer or his final high school season.
