    By GREG CREWS gcrews@thenewsenterprise.com Most basketball players go their whole career without getting the opportunity three Elizabethtown youths will have today. Soon-to-be T.K.

  • OPINION: World Cup fever is gone...

    I have to admit I caught the World Cup fever. I caught myself watching matches even when the United States wasn’t playing, but my interest was piqued because of how well our country was playing. I’m not what you would call an avid soccer fan. I played soccer – indoor and out – for a few years when I was much younger. I enjoy watching high school matches.

    Random notes and thoughts on area sports typed in while looking for oil-resistant swim trunks prior to my annual excursion to the Gulf Coast next month:

    In hindsight, I should have checked the non-existent record book.

    Back in 1997, lanky pitcher Carissa McCoy led the Meade County Lady Waves to a fourth-place finish in the softball state tournament. For her efforts, she was named Area Sophomore of the Year as well as Area Player of the Year on the annual All-Area Softball Team.

    RUSSELL SPRINGS — Honestly, I don’t know much about excelling in golf. Pretty sure I’d struggle just to get the dang ball off the darn tee.

    But you don’t have to be a scratch golfer to realize this: Beverly Games doesn’t play like the average weekend warrior.

    For the Elizabethtown resident, wife and mother of two, golf is just something she does.

    It’s not something, however, that defines her.

    RUSSELL SPRINGS — For everything she didn’t do Friday, Karisa Akin still managed to achieve a feat no Elizabethtown woman had been able to previously accomplish.

    Akin outlasted fellow Elizabethtown resident and two-time finalist Beverly Games, 1-up, to win the 84th Women’s State Amateur Championship at the par-71, 5,200-yard Lakewood Country Club.

    Dickie Jones didn’t expect Jessica Gabhart to have this much success so early.

    But the Elizabethtown standout hurdler has won two state titles in two years and set a Class 2-A record last season.

    When Brandon Bagley transferred from Georgia before his junior year, John Hardin coaches Ralph Tucker and Leland Warsaw saw an athlete with a lot of raw potential.

    Neither of them, however, expected Bagley to become the elite athlete he is.

    After 84 years, Elizabethtown will have its first Women’s Kentucky State Amateur champion.

    Karisa Akin and Beverly Games made sure of that Thursday as each won a pair of matches at Lakewood Country Club in Russell Springs to reach today’s championship flight final.

    The berth to the championship match, however, didn’t come easy for either.
