  • Bourbon Colonels defeat Braves...

    The Bourbon County Colonels came to Dry Ridge April 24 for an inter-regional match up with the Braves and came away victorious, winning 10-1.

    Braves pitcher Damion Ingguls breezed through the first two innings, allowing just a single in the second, before the Bourbon County bats came to life in the third, scoring four runs and moving two runners into scoring position before Ingguls shut the door on the inning.

  • Lady Braves beat Owen Co. in...

    The Grant County Lady Braves softball team hosted Owen County on April 20 at Grant County High School and scored the games only run in the bottom half of the seventh inning.

    With the 1-0 victory the Lady Braves move to 9-10 on the season.

    It was a pitcher’s duel throughout the game with each team not able to get multiple runners on the base paths until the sixth inning.  Grant County collected five hits against the Lady Rebels’ Kaitlyn Parker.

    It was not a surprise to Justin Downer when California guard Jemarl Baker got a scholarship offer from Kentucky earlier this month — or that he accepted it.
    “He is a kid that is very confident in his abilities,” said Downer.
    Downer is an assistant coach for Earl Watson Elite — the team Baker played for on the Under Armor circuit last summer and made a league-best 41 three-pointers.

  • Braves drop fourth straight, 10-0

    Grant County’s woes at the plate continued on Thursday, as the Simon Kenton Pioneers travelled to Dry Ridge and handed the Tribe their third shutout in four games.
    Both teams were coming off the Doc Morris Invitational where the Braves sandwiched a 10-5 loss to Glen Este (Ohio) between a shutout at the hands of Cooper and Holy Cross.
    Simon Kenton entered the game on a skid of its own, having lost three of its last four games, including dropping both games in the Invitational, and six of the last ten.

  • Lloyd blanks Demons 6-0

    The Lloyd Memorial Juggernauts made the trip from Erlanger to take on Williamstown in a North-Central Kentucky Conference matchup on April 17 and made the trip back to Erlanger as victors, handing the Demons a 6-0 loss.

    The game moved quickly through the first four innings as pitchers AJ Scroggins and Jerik Ward disallowed any sustained rallies and kept the opposition out of the runs column, and the fifth frame appeared to be much of the same, following Scroggins’ sixth strikeout to start the fifth.

  • Lady Demons win All ‘A’ Classic...

    The Lady Demons softball team took on the Owen County Lady Rebels on Thursday, April 13, at Carroll County High School for the opportunity to move on to the KHSAA Class A championship.  They held on to win despite a late inning rally by the Lady Rebels to win 6-4 in their first-ever Class A regional championship.  
    Coach Andrew Laughlin had nothing but high praise for his Lady Demon softball team.

    It took Emmy winning director Jonathan Hock almost 20 months to put together the documentary, “One And Not Done,” on Kentucky coach John Calipari that aired on ESPN.
    Like many Kentucky fans have come to believe, Hock admits he perhaps had the wrong perception of Calipari until he had a chance to get to know him.

    For the last 40 years, Rob Bromley has covered University of Kentucky sports — along with other things — for  WKYT-TV (Channel 27) in Lexington. However, he announced last week he was retiring at the end of September.

    I had been covering UK sports for about two years when Bromley started and never in 40 years have I heard him say anything bad about anyone or anyone say anything bad about one of the nicest men I’ve ever known. He’s also the most tenured television anchor on the air in Kentucky.
