    The Williamstown High School boys soccer team is one step closer to becoming a varsity program.
    Last year, the program had a freshman team that had a 0-10-2 record.
    This year, they are becoming a junior varsity team, with 12 returning players, with plans to move up to the varsity level in fall 2018.

    Experience normally proves invaluable for Southeastern Conference football players at any school. Kentucky certainly is no exception.
    Just ask junior cornerback Derrick Baity, a three-star prospect from Florida. He played all 12 games as a true freshman in 2015 and started four. Last season, he started all 13 games and had three interceptions, seven pass breakups and 42 tackles.

    Tina Cobb was caught off guard when her son, Randall, called to tell her he had some “news” for her.
    Since he recently got married, she thought maybe he was going to tell her he was expecting a child. Instead, he told her he was being inducted in the Kentucky Athletics Hall of Fame in September.
    “We had never talked about this. It was a big surprise when he told me,” said Tina Cobb. “It was a total surprise to me.”

    He might not have played as well or as much as he wanted — and a minor injury contributed to that — during the FIBA Under 19 World Cup, but that won’t impact the way New Albany (Ind.) guard Romeo Langford will finish the summer or his final high school season.

    This year’s NBA draft produced three more lottery picks for Kentucky and coach John Calipari. In eight years at UK, he’s had three number one overall picks, 24 first-round picks and 31 players drafted overall. No other school can match those numbers in the same time period.

    Remember not long ago when some wondered if Bam Adebayo had made the right choice by leaving Kentucky after his freshman season to enter the NBA draft.
    Even as the draft approached, some mock drafts had him in the second round. Sure, Kentucky coach John Calipari said he could be a lottery pick, but the so-called draft experts were not saying that.
    Or were they?
    Weeks before the draft, I talked to Brian Clifford, Adebayo’s high school coach at High Point Christian Academy.

    It would have been easy to make a phone call, send a text or make a post on social media to announce her verbal commitment to the Kentucky basketball program.
    Junior Emma King of Lincoln County didn’t want to do that. She thought it would be more “special” for everyone if she went to Lexington to tell Coach Matthew Mitchell face to face.
     “That way I also got to visit them all (UK coaches and players). I love them all. It was a good excuse to go up there,” said King. “Plus, I wanted to see his reaction.

    It was almost 25 years ago that Kevin Young became the first person to run the 400-meter hurdles in less than 47 seconds. His time of 46.78 seconds set a world record — and 25 years later it still stands.
    Young, who won the gold medal in the 1992 Olympics while breaking the record set by Edwin Moses, was at the Maximum Velocity Track & Field Camp at Centre College in Danville recently sharing his expertise with youngsters from Kentucky and other states.
