  • MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL:...

    Ray Valentine’s homecoming went a little bit better than it did for the team he was facing Saturday afternoon.

    A former T.K. Stone Middle student and the first-year coach of Georgetown College’s junior varsity, Valentine returned to his old stomping grounds and guided his Tigers to a 69-58 win over the Elizabethtown Community & Technical College Barons at T.K. Stone.

    More than 300 fans attended Barons’ first home game in 31 years.

  • BOYS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    BOWLING GREEN — After he let a potential breakthrough win slip away last year, Adam Sandidge returned to the site of his demise and atoned for it by breaking away for a 13-second victory Saturday in the 59-runner Class 2-A, Region 2 championship.

    The LaRue County junior covered the course at Ephram White Park in 16 minutes, 45.15 seconds to beat his previous season best by more than 10 seconds.

    Last year, Sandidge led the region meet for most of the race before fading down the stretch and finishing third.

    North Hardin teammates Marcus Terrell and Brandon Ignas were determined to push each other toward the Class 3-A, Region 2 individual title. It didn’t matter who won as long as it wasn’t someone not wearing Trojan blue and white.

    For the first mile, the duo shared the lead Saturday morning at the Hardin County Fairgrounds. Terrell and Ignas were feeling great, and they were content to be together out front.

    “I felt pretty confident that we could keep (the lead) the whole race,” Ignas said.
