Today's Sports

  • Show your support for the Rocky...

    Coming up this weekend, Aug. 4, will feature Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation's annual banquet.
    It'll be held at Centre Square starting at 5:30 p.m., I think? While this is a moneymaker for the Elk Foundation you can still win some valuable prizes. There's the ever-popular 10-gun drawing. In this "game" you have one ticket for a chance to win one of the 10 guns.
    In another, you have a metal band with a number, you have the correct band, you win the prize!

  • Volleyball season right around...

    With school starting in Marion County in just a few days, that means only one thing - the start of high school sports. The team that will play the first organized event of the new school year is the Lady Knights volleyball team.
    The team actually began their season when they competed in the Bluegrass State Games this past weekend.

  • Spalding leads tennis team to...

  • Lumberjaxx win tournament

    The Lebanon Lumber Jaxx recently won the TNY Invitational Tournament at Jaycees Park in Lancaster/Garrard County.

  • Reed wins bronze at Bluegrass...

    Kaelin Reed of Lebanon won the bronze medal in the men's 3.0 level tennis competition at the Bluegrass State Games in Lexington on July 15.

  • St. Catharine women's hoops...

    By SCC Sports Information

    Officially, they will be called "new" as members of Lena Bramblett's women's basketball coaching staff at St. Catharine College. But the coaches now on board for the Patriots are by no means new to the Patriot program.
    Gone is Terreka Walker, who spent the last five years with Bramblett as her only full-time assistant. Joining the staff for the 2012-13 season are Sara Sexton and Tyler Campbell (Lena's brother). Both have strong ties to the college as a whole and also to Patriot basketball.

  • 11-12 Year Olds are State Runner...

    The Marion County 11-12 baseball all-stars finished the season as the 2012 Little League state runner-up.

    On Friday, Warren Southern used a pair of three-run home runs get the 8-5 over Marion County despite the local team's comeback effort.

    Thursday, Marion County defeated Russell-Flatwoods, 11-1, in the state semifinals to set up the championship game match-up.

  • Marion County all-stars ready...

    The Marion County 11-12 all-star team has reached the elimination play of the state baseball tournament.

    The local all-stars defeated Knox County on July 25 to wrap up pool play with a perfect 3-0 record.

    In the semifinals, Marion County is scheduled to play Russell-Flatwood at 8 p.m. at Stone Crest Field #1 in Prestonsburg. The winner will play in the state championship game, which is scheduled for Friday evening.

  • 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.
