    Karisa Akin is no different.

    Akin has always played with a certain flair. Playing with that edge has made her one of the best golfers to come from this area. She was an outstanding high school player and went onto to enjoy a solid college career.

    Youth was served Wednesday as the championship bracket’s consolation bracket opened in the 86th annual Women’s Kentucky State Amateur Golf Championship at the par-72, 5,603-yard Elizabethtown Country Club.

  • PREP SPORTS: Plans for E'...

    To bring the new sports complex for football, soccer and track at Elizabethtown High School closer to its $4 million budget target, some sacrifices became necessary.

    Discussions between Superintendent Gary French and Louisville architect Chris D. Cottongim led to a new plan presented to school board members Wednesday evening during a work session.

    Changes include reducing the stadium and fieldhouse structure by 2,000-square feet, which makes it 50-feet shorter and requiring the sports to share locker room facilities.
