  • Lady Demons fall to Lady Royals 12-5

    The game was closer than the score, but a loss is still a loss, as the Williamstown Lady Demons fell to Mason County, 12-5, March 26 at home.

    “We struggled with our hitting,” Lady Demons coach Melissa Gayhart said. “We left 10 on base and we just didn’t finish.”

    Gayhart said the Lady Demons are struggling to find a catcher and have relied on sixth grader Nicole Hankinson to play behind the plate, after losing senior Tiffany Foley for the season with a back injury.

  • ‘Cats advance to ‘Blue Orleans’

    Coach John Calipari might not have wanted revenge to be a motivating factor for his team and said after the game that they never discussed it.  But the blue clad Kentucky fans that filled the Georgia Dome in Atlanta March 23 definitely had it on their mind.

    Terrence Jones got the scoring started with a three pointer and jumper, quickly surpassing his forgettable performance in the first meeting this season.  The fast paced end to end action was only stopped by the quick, and at times questionable, whistles of the officials.
