  • Grant grabs 45th Duffers

    Roger Grant put his name in the record books as champion of the 45th Annual Duffers Tournament.

    The tournament was Aug. 1 and 2 at Heritage Hill Golf Club in Shepherdsville.

    Grant, using a 7-handicap, totaled rounds of 78 and 77 for a gross score of 155 and a net product of 141 to edge Rick Newton's 1-handicap total of 144 and 142. Newton produced the top gross total.

    Gary Osborne placed third with a net score of 149 while Weldon Riggs was fourth at 151.

  • Any chances for a pair of new...

    A lot of dirt has been moved at Campbellsville Middle School at the site of a future track for the Purple and Gold.

    There has also been some speculation that eventually that could also be the home of Eagles’ football.

    Once the track is built, there seems to be plenty of room for a stadium and fieldhouse, and that would help the Lady Eagles’ softball team, which hosts its home games at CMS.

    An eventual move to home football and soccer games at CMS would also mean the Eagle baseball team would have the current complex by itself.

  • Bad news travels way too fast

    With our modern age of technology, it doesn’t take long to spread the news. That became even more apparent to me on Saturday night while at a softball tournament.

    Getting my phone charged in someone else’s car at about 20 miles west of St. Louis in Bridgeton, Mo., it was evident that something had happened near home when I saw I had a text message from Campbellsville High School head boys’ basketball coach Tim Davis.

  • Despain scores third straight...

    Elliott Despain and Despain Motorsports continued their winning ways on July 24 as they scored their third consecutive win of the 2009 racing season at Clinton County Speedway in Alpha, Ky.

    Despain began the night by timing in with the third quickest lap during the qualifying session and started outside the front row in his heat race. The 20-year-old racer went on to win the heat race and started on the pole of the Modified main event.

  • Cassell downs Noland in play-off

    Mike Cassell won a sudden-death play-off over Joe Noland to claim the Charles Stiles Memorial Senior Duffers championship at the Bardstown Country Club Maywood Course.

    After the Monday first round, Noland held a one-stroke lead over Tommie Brown and Buck Roberts with a net score of 65. Cassell closely followed with a net 68.

    After a fierce battle on day two of the tourney, the round ended with Noland and Cassell tied with net 133s at the end of regulation play.

  • Amazon.com Senior Special

    Cynthiana’s Mike Lenox used three birdies to win the 2009 Kentucky Senior Golf Association Amazon.com Special on Monday at Campbellsville Country Club.

    Lenox’s birdies came on three of the course’s four par 5s and another on hole No. 11, a par 4. His two-shot win over Louisville’s Ron Acree helped to edge him up the board of the KSGA Player of the Year.

    Beaver Simpson from Bowling Green took top honors in the net division of the first flight with a 74, and Don Wood led the way in the super senior division with a low gross total of 75.

  • Campbellsville Christian,...

    Campbellsville Christian defeated Elk Horn Baptist to win the Men’s Church League Tournament championship while Summersville Baptist downed First Baptist for the Coed Church crown at Veterans Memorial Park.

    Those teams joined Industrial champion UPS as the victors.
