  • VOLLEYBALL PREVIEW: Girls eyeing...

    The new coach around Anderson County is a former shooting guard who saw one of his heroes catch the final out of the World Series and likes to throw out motivational quotes from Vince Lombardi.

    And Dale Adkins is coaching volleyball. He smiles at the irony of being the fourth coach in four years in the Anderson program and asking the Lady Bearcats to double their win total – nine – from last year.

    Marcus Small thought he was too big, but now he’s got his eyes focused on huge things.

    “I was sitting on my couch one day and looked down. I was disgusted with myself,” Small said of that day three years ago.

    The 2010 graduate of Anderson County High School will be seeing how small, and how big, he has become Saturday night as he goes for the title of Mr. Kentucky, Teenage Division, at the Frankfort Convention Center.  Small will also compete in the Men’s Open Novice division.

    The Kentucky Rockers 16-and-under McCoy team finished second at the Future Stars of Sports World Series, held July 21-24 in Johnson City, Tenn.

    Anderson County resident Sarah Griffie is a member of the Rockers team.

    The Rockers opened tournament play using a 5-run third to rally from a 5-1 deficit and post an 8-5 victory over the Louisville Stars. Griffie worked the pitching circle, going the distance, giving up one earned run.
