  • COLLEGE SPORTS: Potential ECTC...

    Alex Molina scanned over the desks in room 214 of Elizabethtown Community and Technical College’s Regional Postsecondary Center on Friday night and saw plenty of familiar faces.

    At least getting acclimated with his future Barons will be one of the easier tasks for ECTC’s first-year men’s soccer coach.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: ECTC philosophy...

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: OK, so who is...

    A logo has yet to be picked and uniforms have not been ordered – partly because coaches need to know how many to order and partly because an identity kit for the Barons hasn’t been decided on – but Elizabethtown Community and Technical College has pushed forward with scheduling.

  • BASEBALL: Ohio Valley Regionals...

    Mike Pyles thought hosting one Cal Ripken Ohio Valley Regional Tournament kept him busy.
    This year, though, the tournament director has been swamped with put-ting accommodations together to hold two – the 11- and 12-year-old tour-naments with Elizabeth-town in both.
    Plus it’s the headline event to open the new Elizabethtown Sports Park, a near-$30 million multi-sports facility which opened to the public Sat-urday.
    So, there’s no pressure on him and the 100-125 volunteers to put on a spectacular and impressive five-day event.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: EABC 9s fall (07...

    Just like in their first two pool play games at the Ohio Valley Regional, the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission 9-year-old All-Stars couldn’t get much going offensively Saturday night.

    EABC lost to Southeast Lexington for the second time at the regional, falling 10-2 in the second round of the single-elimination tournament at Jeffersontown’s Skyview Park. EABC went 2-3 in the 20-team event.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: Men's hoops...

    Roman Ritchey loves basketball. Playing or coaching, Ritchey feels right at home on the hardwood.

    He played one season on the junior varsity level at Georgetown College after graduating from LaRue County High School in 2003, and still plays in pickup games around the area. Ritchey also spent this past year as an assistant to John Veague at Elizabethtown Christian Academy.

  • OLYMPICS: In E'town stop,...

    James Johnson has been a busy man the last few months as he’s prepared for the Summer Olympics in London.

    But when Rod Davis approached him about coming to Kentucky for a speaking engagement, Johnson jumped at the opportunity. He just thought the ceremony would take place in Lexington, where he wrestled for four years at the University of Kentucky.

    Still, when Davis told him he’d be traveling to Elizabethtown, the connection wasn’t lost on Johnson.

  • GOLF: Hinton falls 19 holes in...

    Garrett Hinton’s quest for the KGA Amateur Match Play Championship title fell short Thursday morning at the par-72, 7,157-yard Hunting Creek Country Club in Prospect.

    Hinton, a former Elizabethtown High School standout who is entering his junior season at Eastern Kentucky University, fell in 19 holes to Transylvania University junior Jantzen Latham, who just happens to be a college roommate and teammate of Hinton’s first cousin, Clay.

    With the extended match, Hinton played 123 holes of golf in a four-day span.

  • BASKETBALL: Dixon not ready to...

    Just because her college career is over, Linda Dixon isn’t about to abandon basketball yet.

    Especially not after her experience at the Hart Sports Management Women’s International Exposure Camp this past Monday and Tuesday.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: ECTC Barons...

    Since the decision was made to resuscitate sports at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College, Dale Buckles said the maroon-clad Barons have been met with open arms.
