    Long posted the low score, a 3-under-par 69, at Kentucky’s 2011 USGA Senior Amateur qualifier at Greenbrier Golf & Country Club in Lexington.

    Long and Dan Smith (who shot an even-par 72, then defeated Joe Cantrell on the third hole of a sudden-death playoff), both qualified for the championship, which will be Sept. 10-15 at Kinloch Golf Club in Manakin-Sabot, Va.

  • Familiar faces across the field

    Alex Matthews figures he will be a bundle of nerves, and a bundle of energy, tonight.

  • Titans take down Wildcats in home opener

    Collins volleyball coach Abbey Buchert wants her team to attack on every play this season.

    But even Buchert wasn’t crazy about senior Allison Henshaw’s attack from the back row during the first game of the Titans’ home-opener Tuesday against Henry County.

    With her team leading, 20-13, Henshaw got a free ball in the back with two choices – hit it safely over or attack. She chose the latter.

    “I said, ‘I’m going to cream this ball,’” the senior outside hitter recalled afterward.
