The only golf action I received this past week was from Lisa Wall at the Madison Country Club.

Here is her report in her own words.

Congratulations to the winners of our first ever Madison County Club Ladies' League Shootout!

In Group 1, Jan Barnes took first place and Missy Smith was second.

In Group 2, Pat Brandenburg was the winner, while Lisa Todd Wall took second place.

In Group 3, Julie Matlock O'Toole took first place and Debbie Grubbs Crafton was second.

Thank you to everyone who came out and played, and to those who came out to support us!

Already can't wait for next time!

Hole-in-one Club

Nine-year-old Ashton Gordon had a hole-in-one on the 160-yard par 3 No. 16 at the University Club at Arlington.

He used his driver.

Ashton recorded the ace on Aug. 8 while playing with his father. It is not known whether or not Ashton beat his dad during the round, but sources close to the event can only confirm that the overall scores were close.

Congrats, Ashton!

You da man!

Bishop and Monroy win boxing matches in Knoxville

This report is in Edna Igo's own words.

Igo's Boxing Club traveled to Knoxville, Tenn., for a boxing show sanctioned by USA Amateur Boxing called "Knock Out Hunger" at the Eppolitto Boxing Club.

Samuel Bishop, eight-years old, 50-pound weight class, won by walkover. Samuel, who has been training six months to get opportunity to show his skills, will be featured in future bouts.

Michael Monroy, 29 years old, 178 pound weight class, won over opponent Trevor Philalum of the Bloody Nose Boxing Club in Tennessee. He out-pointed his opponent to capture his win.

Michael Monroy showcased his skills going three rounds and defeated his opponent.

Coach Igo said he was proud of each boxer.

Igo's Boxing Club will travel to Campbellsville on Aug. 24.

Good luck.

Special thanks to Edna Igo for this report.

My biggest thrill watching Kentucky football

With football season around the corner, I thought I would throw this column in.

It has been interesting reading the Herald Leaders sports columinst Mark Story's series on the University of Kentucky's 50 greatest wins in football.

It was refreshing to see we had beat Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Penn State more times than I could remember.


To me, there was little doubt as to what the greatest win would be. I lived it and breathed it.

I was in the Kentucky National Guard in 1950 and was attending artillery school at Ft. Sill in Lawton, Ok., when the game was played. I had wagered a dollar, with three of my instructors on Kentucky, even though they were 15-point underdogs.


At that time Oklahoma had won 31-straight games and was the consensus No. 1 team in the country.

Kentucky had won 10 games and lost one and was ranked No. 7 in the country.

Kentucky's terrific quarterback Babe Parelli threw a touchdown pass to Wilbur Jamerson, who also ran for a touchdown and Kentucky won 13-7.

Oklahoma's 31-game win streak came to an end.


Kentucky was never officially named the No. 1 team in the country, but to me they were.

Special thanks to that great coach Bear Bryant for all the great football you brought to Kentucky.

May you rest in peace. Aloha and Mohalo!
