Last Saturday at the Madison Country Club, Kristen Wilson and Molly Caldwell took the checkered flag in the annual ladies member-guest tournament.

On a beautiful day for golf, this duo shot a -5, 67, in the 18-hole scramble to win the first flight. Second-place honors went to the team of Amanda Marcum and Margaret Farmer with a score of 69.

The second flight winners were Nicki Layne Nixon and Susan Bybee with a 78. In second was Pat Brandenburg and Wendy Winters with a 79.

The third flight, the winners were Lisa Wall and Tara Cotton with a score of 76. Second place went to Nikki Jeck and Jen Dwyer with an 81.

In the special events, the closest to the pin winners were Nancy Pennington and Missy Smith.

Afterward, the players enjoyed refreshments and a delicious luncheon catered by Nuevo Vallarta.

It was another great day of golf and renewing friendships at the old fun club, and it was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Congratulations to all you winners.

Special thanks to Lisa Wall and Pat Brandenburg for the info.


Battle in the Ville

Igo's Boxing Club traveled to Campbellsville last Saturday to compete in Campbellsville's first-ever USA Boxing sanctioned event.

A total of 24 bouts took place. It was hosted by Campbellsville Boxing University

Igo's Boxing Club had three boxers entered in the competition. In the 50-pound weight class, Samuel Bishop was defeated by Wes Breeding.

Igo's Braxton Hicks (95 pounds) was defeated by opponent Lucas Harriman of American Pride Boxing Club, in three rounds by points.

Michael Monroy of Igo's Boxing Club, (178 pounds) was defeated by Trevor Pish of the Bloody Nose Boxing Club in three by points.

It was a disappointing trip to Campbellsville for Igo's Boxing Club, but a good learning lesson.

Coach Emmitt Igo's lessons were: Each boxer competing Saturday understand where and when errors were made. His comment to each boxer was to apply what skills you practice in gym, when going against your opponents. The trip to Campbellsville showed that our boxers need to apply their skills in competition.

My hats off to these three young gentlemen for having the courage to get in that ring and learn to box and learn to defend yourself. It is a good feeling.

I had two months of training under heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey at bootcamp in New York, during World War II, and it was really worthwhile.

Coach Igo and his wife, Edna, are two people who make a big difference in this community. Coach Igo is a great instructor so come on out to Igo's Boxing Club at 114 Fairview Street and learn to box. Their hours are Monday through Thursday 6 to 7:30 p.m.
