  • I was just along for the run

     

  • Tough losses for the track and field family

    You’ve heard it said about things before, but in this case, it’s really true; track and field is like one big family.

    My son is a thrower (shot put, hammer) at Georgetown College, which is in the Mid-South Conference, with Campbellsville University and Lindsey Wilson College. He’s in his second year, and my wife and I attend every meet, whether it’s nearby or far away. It’s just what we do.

  • CU athletes deserve to compete on a level playing field

     

    I didn’t see him complain, but I think Clayton Embry had to feel a little slighted this past weekend.

    Embry is a thrower on the Campbellsville University track and field team, and he placed second in the Mid-South Conference meet at the University of the Cumberlands.

    Why would he feel slighted? Well, because he finished second in the hammer throw, not to a student-athlete, but to a coach.

  • Old friends - the best friends

    We span the decades; these old friends of mine.
    “We’re planning to go to the Kentucky Derby. Got any suggestions?” they called and asked me several months ago.
    I didn’t have any, really, other than my sage advice for them to avoid the crowds as much as possible.
    “You haven’t changed,” Cindy laughed. “On the way back, we’ll be there for Sunday worship with you.”
    Which they did, much to my delight.
