LEXINGTON - As Joker Phillips went through the list of offensive linemen Kentucky added during Wednesday's national signing day, a thought hit him. "We've signed nine guys that can play up front. We've signed more offensive linemen than we have on scholarship on campus right now," said Phillips. "But when you are building a program, that's where you build first. "We don't have a senior in the group in our offensive line. These are guys that will be with us a few years. We don't want to ever be short of offensive linemen again.

After three coaches in as many years, the eighth-grade cheerleaders at West Jessamine Middle School are settling into a comfortable routine with their new leader - and it has already shown with success at a summer camp. Kristin Williams took the reins of the program after the previous coach resigned in May. Williams, who cheered in Jessamine County schools before the East-West split, was encouraged to apply by her niece, a West Middle cheerleader. “I have two boys - a 14-year-old and a 1-year-old - so I wasn't really into the girls' stuff,” Williams said.

Adding offensive linemen is a recruiting priority for the University of Kentucky, which loses three starters off this year's offensive line to graduation. The Wildcats added their second high school offensive linemen when 270-pound Gary Williams of Louisville Seneca decided Thursday night to make a verbal commitment to Kentucky. He had delayed a decision on his college choice while waiting to see if Louisville would offer a scholarship. Since the Cardinals have yet to offer, he decided not to wait any longer after making a recent unofficial visit to Kentucky when the Cats hosted Louisville.

If your 6-, 7- or 8-year old is ready for an overnight 4-H camping experience then Camp Cloverbud may be the place to start. Camp Cloverbud is specifically designed for campers (and parents) who are not yet ready for a full week of a residential camping experience.  The length of stay is shorter (two nights and three days) and the staff to camper ratio is greater. Campers still participate in all the traditional camp activities offered at 4-H camp including canoeing, swimming, archery, nature and recreation, as well as a host of fun nighttime activities.

This is the second year in a row that the Centre College Youth Baseball Camp has gone off campus, because Centre's field is under construction for the second straight summer. Gary Wright Field has undergone significant changes over the last four years, and this is the second straight year that the diamond itself is being resurfaced, so the summer camp has once again found a home at Danville's Admiral Field. "(Danville) coach (Paul) Morse has been very good about allowing us to use the field," Centre coach Mike Pritchard said.
