    The North Hardin Athletic Complex will be getting a makeover in the near future.

    Final plans to renovate Ray Story Stadium were approved Thursday night and are slated to begin this summer. Construction is scheduled to be completed in August, meaning the facility should be ready for the start of football season.

    The field will remain unchanged, but the stadium will be torn down, meaning the seats, press box, locker rooms, concession stands and restrooms will be brand new.

    The project will cost approximately $2,015,000.

  • GIRLS' PREP HOOPS OPINION:...

    LEXINGTON– Some players must be born to play a particular sport.

    Not sure if you quite believe that?

    It sounds a little crazy, but once hearing Ivy Brown’s story, it’s obviously the case.

    Brown’s mother, Michelle, recalled leaving the gym where one of Brown’s sisters, Danielle or Kaelyn, was playing a basketball game, because she went into labor. The next week, Michelle returned to the gym with new daughter, Ivy, with her.

    “We knew she was going to be a ball player,” Michelle joked.
