  • GIRLS' PREP GOLF: Gumm...

    The first time we saw Lydia Gumm on the high school golf scene she was only 9 years old. The little girl with the bright ear-to-ear smile was easy to recognize. Not because she was usually the smallest girl on the course, but she tugged a pull cart which held her clubs behind her.

    Gumm was a typical 9-year-old in many regards. She liked listening to music and hanging out with friends. But what was uncharacteristic of many girls her age was her unbelievable golf game.

  • YOUTH TRACK: Seven area athletes...

    Since he formed the Kentucky Elite in 2000, Chris Jelks has been fortunate to coach some of the area’s top track athletes during the summer months.

    From the likes of Byron Lewis, Angela Knott and Jamaal Folks in the program’s first few years to Brandon Bagley and Andrew Stewart, the Elite has featured some of the area’s best prep track stars.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: Buckles calls...

    Dr. Dale Buckles jokes he was the youngest male to be hired as a full-time staff member at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

    He’s certainly been around long enough to coach a men’s basketball team and women’s basketball squad for the Barons, watch them both evaporate into thin air and witness the former reappear again along with men’s soccer, women’s soccer and women’s tennis.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: ECTC soccer...

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: First ECTC women...

    While Andre Cooper’s inaugural Elizabethtown Community and Technical College women’s soccer team is supposed to wear maroon, the Barons’ coach from Trinidad could see some North Hardin High School blue and white at practice this week.

    Of the 12 women who filled out informational forms Friday night at the school’s athletics organizational meeting inside its Regional Postsecondary Center, four of the potential Barons attended North Hardin.

  • 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.
