  • Protect the players

    Evyn Hendrickson had little time to react.
    Union County High School's senior pitcher delivered the pitch, and in a split second, catastrophe struck.
    Hendrickson was hit by a line drive that was traveling more than 70 mph during a game in April, resulting in several broken bones on her face. She was not the only softball player to experience a line drive to the face in recent memory as three other players in her region had also been hit by a line drive hit in the span of a month.

  • Vaught’s Views: Randall Cobb...

    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.”

  • Southern Kentucky Katz

    You can find Lez Means' name in the history books at Marion County High School. 
    Means found the hot hand against Beth Haven on Feb. 16, sinking 10 three pointers in a run-away 73-45 win over the Bearcats in Louisville. Means had a career-high 38 points in the game. Means ended the season by scoring 32 points in a 57-55 loss to LaRue County. 

  • 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.
