  • Faces of Kentucky basketball

    Faces. Past and future.

    As Jerry West’s silhouette is emblem for the NBA, if Kentucky basketball’s glorious past had a face (and idyllic nickname), both would belong to Raymond ‘Corky’ Withrow.

    At 75, Withrow will be inducted into the KHSAA Hall of Fame next spring. Good thing coming to a deserving man very late. A man who, with his athletic skills and personality, brought much credit to his home state.

  • Rockets burst season ender, Lady...

    Two months ago, the Spencer County Lady Bears shocked the 30th region with an upset win over Shelby County in the basketball tournament. For three innings  Monday night, it looked like Spencer County might repeat that effort on the softball diamond, but in the end it wasn’t meant to be, and the girls saw their season come to an end with a 12-4 loss at the hands of the Lady Rockets.

  • JV/Freshmen Girls’...

    The JV/Freshmen girl’s softball team won the Relay for Life fundraiser tournament hosted by Carroll County on May 9.

  • Honeymoon Cal trying to bridle...

    While we marvel at Rich Brooks rise to fifth ranked genius among SEC coaches, up from 12th, the Commonwealth’s hottest new celebrity was back in the news last week.

    John Calipari was trying to put the brakes on fan expectations next season and drew support from an NBA general manager and a Louisville fan in western Kentucky.

    Rex Chapman told The Sporting News: “... I believe it’s going to realistically be at least two years before the Cats can be back in a Final Four.”

  • Bears win season ender

    The Spencer County Bears ended their regular season on a high note Saturday with a 5-4 victory over Trimble County as they prepared for the postseason that was scheduled to begin Tuesday night.

    The Bears were to be in Anderson County to square off with the Shelby County Rockets in the first round of the 30th District Tournament Tuesday.

    The final week of the season got off to an exciting start with a 23-13 win over Bardstown on the road last Tuesday.
