    When popular Miss Madison/Oh Boy! Oberto driver Steve David executed a spectacular, abeit accidental, 360 degree flip in heat 4-A of the Oryx Cup UIM World Championship in Doha, Qatar, damage to the boat and driver was thought to be fairly minor.

    Boat and driver finished second in the Final Heat run later in the day, to secure the 2009 Season High Point Championship.

    Now X-rays taken during a routine physical in Lighthouse Point, Florida--David’s home town--have revealed he was driving in the final heat with a broken fibula in his right (throttle) leg.

    Whitney Ballinger is leading the Campbellsville University Lady Tigers in scoring and rebounding even though hamstrung by foul trouble while CU has rung up three impressive wins.

    A former star player at Carroll County High School, Ballinger transferred to Campbellsville after spending a year at Western Kentucky University.

    “Whitney has been a terrific addition to our program,” said Campbellsville Coach Ginger Colvin. “She is an excellent student, player and person.”

  • Panthers’ quickness...

    When the Panthers hit the hardwood in their season opener on Dec. 1, they may look a little different from the team last seen in February.

    While the 2008-2009 team played a slower half-court set offense and defense, this year will be all about shooting well and running the floor.

    “This year, we’re going to get the ball up and down the floor and extend our defense more,” Carroll County Head Coach Carroll Yager said.
