  • State Little League: NOLL 12...

    BOWLING GREEN – North Oldham has earned itself a day with no pressure after taking care of business this weekend.

    The NOLL 12's beat Corbin 16-6 in five innings Sunday afternoon in their second Pool A game of the state Little League tournament at Ephram White Park.

    That win, coupled with a 21-1 demolition of (Lexington) Eastern American Saturday and the results of the other two Pool A games, clinched NOLL a No. 1 seed for the tournament semifinals Tuesday.

  • Play underway at 95th Kentucky...

    PROSPECT – The 95th Kentucky Open began Tuesday at Hunting Creek Country Club.

    One-hundred sixty golfers were entered in the three-day event, which wraps up Thursday.

    Six former champions are in the field, including 2013 titleist Rick Cochran III of Paducah.

    Hunting Creek is hosting the Open for the first time since 1992, when Daniel Peege won the title.

    Golfers with local connections include Bruce Stigger and Todd Wellemeyer, both of Prospect.
     

  • NOLL a threat in Bowling Green

    North Oldham Little League’s 12-year-olds are out to finish the job this time.

    Two years ago as 10-year-olds, NOLL advanced to the state championship game, falling to Owensboro Southern.

    Last year NOLL made it to the semifinals of the 11-year-old state tournament before bowing out.

    The NOLL 12’s dominated the district tournament last week and now they’re off to Bowling Green to try to finally capture a state crown.

  • Slugger Reed the star for North...

    Austin Reed can do it all for North Oldham Little League’s state-bound 12-year-olds.

    Reed can pitch, throwing a hard fastball and serving as ace of the rotation.

    He can flash the leather, showing uncommon range at the shortstop position.

    And he can hit, as evidenced by home run balls he’s hit that’ve gotten lost in the forest behind Walsh Park’s Brad Clifford Field.

    “He really does a lot of things well,” manager Doug Oak said.

  • Beisner hopes first film raises...

    Feleica Stewart jokes that Goshen resident Thomas Beisner is another member of her family.

    That added a little bit of pressure for Beisner when he was producing a documentary about her son, late University of Kentucky basketball signee John Stewart.

    “She calls me her angel and her son which, now that the documentary is done, is a great thing,” Beisner said Monday. “But it added a lot of fear leading up to that.”

    Oldham lost 9-3 to Ashland in its first game and 9-2 to Metcalfe County in its second contest of the double-elimination tournament.
