  • ECTC to offer fall sports

    Elizabethtown Community and Technical College President Dr. Thelma White announced Thursday the college would be fielding club-level teams in men’s and women’s soccer, men’s basketball and women’s tennis.

    Starting with the fall semester coming up in August, the Barons are back.

    The college last had basketball teams in the 1980s. Dean of Students Dale Buckles remembers how students in those years had something to take school pride in.

    He wants current students to experience that same feeling.

  • Sandidge competes at State Park...

     Forty miles a week, going on 60. A mid-17-minute 5K time. Consistently beating out older and stronger runners in statewide races. You could say Adam Sandidge isn’t the typical 16-year-old. 

    Heading into his junior year at LaRue County High School, Sandidge has been running since he came across the high school cross-country tryouts when he was in the fifth grade. By seventh grade, he had run his first 10-mile race.
