    There’s only one local player left in the upper bracket of the championship flight of the 86th annual Women’s Kentucky State Amateur Golf Championship.

    Elizabethtown’s Beverly Games stayed alive with solid play, knocking down crucial putts and displaying a cool-under-pressure attitude throughout the back nine.

    Tied after 10 holes, Games came up with a series of clutch shots to hold off Western Kentucky University sophomore April Butler for a 2 and 1 victory Wednesday at Elizabethtown Country Club.

    Two former Women’s Kentucky State Amateur Golf Championship winners opened first flight match play with wins Tuesday at Elizabethtown Country Club.

    Jessica Cornelius, the 1984 champion, earned a 5 and 3 win over Elizabethtown High School senior Ashley Hartlage. Meanwhile, Laurie Goodlett, a two-time State Am champ and the winner of this past weekend’s Lady Bug Invitational at ECC, earned a 3 and 2 win over Sabrina Ferreri, who plays NCAA Division-I golf at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn.

  • BASKETBALL: Terrence Jones...

    Matt Trumbo remembers the craziness that was Towne Mall when former University of Kentucky men’s basketball player Anthony Davis was in Elizabethtown in late April.

    Over 3,000 fans turned out to see Davis on April 22. When Trumbo heard another former Kentucky player would be at Towne Mall on Tuesday, he wanted to make sure he and his son Luke got in line pretty early.

    They were the first in line, arriving to the mall around 2 p.m. to get an autograph and take pictures with former Wildcats star Terrence Jones.

    The beginners had plenty of luck Tuesday in the championship flight’s lower bracket in the 86th annual Women’s Kentucky State Amateur Golf Championship.

    Four of the eight lower bracket quarterfinalists playing today at the par-72, 5,603-yard Elizabethtown Country Club are in the tournament for the first time.

    On the flip side, experience might have paid off for State Am veterans such as Lydia Gumm, Krissy Martin, Karisa Akin and Emma Robinson.

    There was only one high school baseball job Eric Allen coveted and that hope turned into a reality Sunday night.

    One person who is a year away from starting her NCAA Division-I college golf career and another person who recently used all of her D-I collegiate eligibility – who both just so happen to be locals – found themselves 1-2 on the Elizabethtown Country Club leader board Monday afternoon after the morning’s 18-hole qualifying round for the 86th annual Women’s Kentucky State Amateur Golf Championship.

  • WOMEN'S STATE AM GOLF:...

    Many of the 67 participants in this week’s State Amateur at Elizabethtown Country Club have played the course before, especially when it hosted the 82nd State Am in 2008.

    Other than keeping the name, a lot has changed.

    “I have not had one person tell me that it’s the same golf course,” said Gary Manes, who was named Elizabethtown Country Club’s club professional in September 2009. “It’s a totally different golf course and its conditions are phenomenally better than what they have been in the past.”
