  • WAKEBOARDING: E-Town Throwdown/...

    Jeff Brown (www.JeffBrownPhotos.com) shares from photos from Sunday's E-Town Throwdown/Bluegrass State Games wakeboarding competition at Elizabethtown's Freeman Lake.

  • 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.”

  • WOMEN'S STATE AM GOLF:...

    Since she started teeing it up as a tyke, Karisa Akin has played dozens, perhaps hundreds of rounds at her former home course at Elizabethtown County Club.

    However, not many of those rounds have been recent as the former Central Hardin High School star has spent the last four years in Murfreesboro, Tenn., as a standout with the Middle Tennessee State University Lady Raiders.

  • GOLF: Good day for Goodlett at...

    It’s taken Laurie Goodlett some 20 years to learn one very valuable golf secret.

    It doesn’t matter how far you drive the ball, it’s your short game that makes the difference.

    Armed with her old-school bull’s-eye putter, the 42-year-old Lawrenceburg resident stayed consistent on the fast, hard greens and sunk the 51st Lady Bug Invitational competition Saturday afternoon.

  • PREP SPORTS: Select Preps names...

    A Central Hardin High School soccer player and Elizabethtown swimmer were honored as the local Overall Athletes of the Year based upon their scholastic and community contributions as well as competitive skills.

  • BASKETBALL: Hall of Fame tickets...

    If you want to see, meet and greet former basketball stars including Clem Haskins, Wallace “Wah Wah” Jones, Wes Unseld or Rex Chapman as they’re inducted into the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame, bounce out now to purchase tickets.

    Slightly more than three weeks before the Hall of Fame inducts the first 16 members of its inaugural class, executive director Rick Whobrey acknowledged it has a little more than half of its 650 tickets remaining for the July 14 event at the Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown.

  • GOLF: E'town's Reed...

    After area golfers struggled in the opening day of the Junior PGA Championship qualifier, they came to life in Thursday’s final round. Especially Michael Reed.

  • GOLF: Clay Hinton finishes tied...

    Clay Hinton’s short game continued to swoon.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: The ECTC Barons...

    Students and alumni of Elizabethtown Community and Technical College have long held on to hope that college sports would someday return to Elizabethtown.

    Students have petitioned administrators to no avail in the years since the college stopped fielding teams.

    But with a growing campus and student body, the ECTC administration decided it was time to revisit the issue.

  • GOLF: Smaller field for Lady Bug...

    Lady Bug Invitational organizer Marilyn Maffet hopes a smaller field can produce some compelling drama Saturday.
