  • FOOTBALL: Tough tourney tuneup...

    You have to hand it to Mark Peach and Jerry Lucas. The head football coaches at Anderson County and Collins high schools had no intention of letting their teams have an easy for the final regular-season football game.

    The teams go at it for the first time Friday night in Shelbyville. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

    It is unarguably one of the marquee games in Kentucky this weekend.

    Four Anderson County High School golfers were invited to participate in the Kentucky Golf Coaches Association Tournament, held Saturday at the University Club in Lexington.

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg volleyball team placed second in the regional tournament, held on Oct. 19. Team members Nancy Lee Holt and Brette Elliott were named to the all-region team. The Lady Rams went into the state tournament ranked seventh out of 16 Christian schools in the state playing volleyball. It is the highest a Christian Academy volleyball team has ever been ranked.

    At the state, however, the Lady Rams ran into top-seeded Somerset Christian in the first round and were eliminated after a short stay.

Shelby defeated Collins in a 5-set match for the title.

    Anderson County resident Anna-Marie Hyatt shot a 4-over 76 in the second round of the National Christian College Athletic Association golf tournament, held last week at Panama City, Fla. Hyatt, playing for Campbellsville University, shaved 10 strokes off her first-day score to finish in a tie for 36th place in the tournament, held at the Hombre Golf Club.

    Campbellsville finished eighth in the nine-team tournament with a two-day total of 639. Dallas Baptist won the title with a 596.

  • OUTDOORS: Fall a favorite time...

    My favorite time of the year has arrived once again. I have just returned home from a business trip to Gettysburg, Pa., and actually enjoyed the eight-plus hour drive through the mountains of West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

    The brilliant fall colors of the leaves can be somewhat distracting when you’re driving not to mention the wildlife. I truly have what some might call a “turkey neck” or “owl head” when driving through such wildlife-rich country.
