    VERSAILLES — It’s not like Elizabethtown coach Mavi Sampaio has high expectations for his Lady Panthers in this weekend’s 3rd Region Championships.

    He only expects his team to finish in the top two with host Woodford County.

    “Oh, yeah, I definitely think we can do that. Why not go for first?” Elizabethtown senior Emma Coakley said during a break in practice Wednesday at T.K. Stone Middle School. “Right now the top team is Woodford County for the girls, but we were close to them last time.”

  • SWIMMING: Giles sisters on opposite teams during regionals

    Sisters Casey and Jesse Giles swim for the same club. They don’t think that’s strange because Elizabethtown’s Dolphin Swimming has plenty of siblings on its ever-growing roster.

    Most everyday after school, the sisters travel to T.K. Stone Middle School for Dolphins practice. They’ll talk about what they had for lunch, homework, funny things said by the lockers between classes and other such things. After practice, they might go get something to eat and then go home.
