    The Marion County Lady Knights lost a scrimmage against the Garrard County Lady Lions on March 8, 2-0.
    The Lady Lions struck first in the top of the second with a run, but senior Kenlee Stout recorded the third out to contain the damage. The Lady Lions would extend the lead to 2-0 helped in part by a Lady Knights error in the sixth.

    By Larry Vaught

    Kentucky freshman Isaac Humphries says as much as he watches Tyler Ulis, he sometimes still is surprised by what his 5-9 teammate does for Kentucky.
    "He's just amazing. He's so much fun to watch," said Humphries. "We all see him do some incredible things, and then we see something new. You just never know what he's going to do."
    Texas A&M assistant coach Rick Stansbury, a Kentucky native, calls Ulis "special" for many reasons and he was certainly that against the Aggies Sunday.

  • Number called

    By Gerard Flanagan

    Who has ever heard of the phrase "next man up" or "your number has been called?" What do you think those two phrases mean?
    I hear those phrases often in sports when a starter on a team is injured. The phrase means someone has to step up and replace an injured player or step into a role when the need arises. Or, it could mean that someone must embark upon something that might not be the most pleasant thing to do.

  • Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers...

    So what’s coming up?
    Well, for those of us in the throes of cabin fever there’s the Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers first tournament coming up this Sunday, March 13.
    The tournament is appropriately called the “Cabin Fever Open” and is held on Marion County’s Fagan Branch Lake. By being an “open” you don’t have to be a member of Mid-Ky. Bass Anglers to fish, but it’s only $20 to join if you want.
