    The Marion County 11 and 12-year-old girls softball all-stars went 3-1 in pool play and went on to win the district tournament in Columbia over the holiday weekend. They will now move on to compete in the state tournament, which will begin July 18 in Prestonsburg.

  • 11-12 All-Stars win first round...

    Lincoln Haydon homered with two outs in the top of the sixth and those runs held up as Marion County's 11-12-year-old All-Stars beat Russell County 2-0 in the opening round of the District Tournament in Campbellsville on Monday night.

    Haydon was great with the bat, but Robbie Spalding's arm stifled Adair most of the night. Spalding gave up three hits and didn't allow a base on balls. He fanned seven.

    Jeremy Morris, besides scoring the winning run, had one other safety in the game.

    Marion will play Adair County at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

  • Garrett wins the skins

    In the second annual Rosewood Charity Skins game, Bill Garrett represented his club by romping the competition on his home course.

  • Lancers win back-to-back titles

    Elton Scott was a game changer three times in the final seven minutes for the Lebanon Lancers in the Kentucky Basketball Developmental League championship game on Saturday at the Roby Dome.

    Lucky for the Lancers, he atoned for a late technical foul after slamming the ball on the court just as the Lancers lost the lead they held all game.

    After leading a tight game for nearly three-and-a-half quarters, the Lancers slipped and the River City Gamblers went up 80-79 with 7:20 to play. The lead would grow to six points after Scott's technical.
