  • CAL Middle School Dominates in Season Opener

                The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg boys' middle school basketball team opened regular season play in Morehead on Saturday with a big win over Lakeside Christian. The Rams, coached by Mark Bowman, came ready to play defense, forcing 17 turnovers as they rolled to a 51-22 victory.

  • Christian Academy hoops off to good start

  • Dillow falls short of goal but leaves strong legacy

    LEXINGTON – The look of disappointment was still etched on Austin Dillow's face 10 minutes after he had completed his final cross country race as a high school runner.

    “I just didn't run,” Dillow said after finishing 104th, well behind his stated goal of a top 50 finish in the state Class 3A meet, held at the Kentucky Horse Park on Saturday.

    Dillow turned in a time of 18:17.37, falling 23 seconds off his time from a year ago.

  • Youthful enthusiasm

    It could be said that Karla Phillips has come full circle.

    Or that she has completed her laps.

    Phillips was a freshman at Anderson County High School when she learned the school's first swim team was being formed. Now, eight years later and fresh out of college, Phillips has taken over the program with high hopes and, it appears, boundless enthusiasm despite the hardship of having no home pool and a history of never having a swimmer qualify for the state meet.

    The Bearcats travel to Conner, located in Boone County, for the Class 5A, Region 3 championship game Friday. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
