HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Kittens cruise past Rose Hill

ASHLAND — The visiting Ashland Kittens raced to a 28-9 lead through one quarter and cruised past Rose Hill Christian 70-43 on Monday night, assuring themselves at least a tie for the top seed in the 64th District tournament by finishing 5-1 in seeding action.

Ashland’s Alexis Robinson led all scorers with 23 points, draining seven 3-pointers. Alex Young scored 13 points and Haley-Sue Foutch notched 10 for the Kittens (19-5).

Myriah Porter had 11 points and seven assists for the Lady Royals (5-15). Kirsten Wehmeier added 10 points.

If Boyd County defeats Fairview on Friday, the Kittens and Lady Lions will tie for the top seed in the district tournament. Since Ashland and Boyd County split their season series, the next tiebreaker would be a blind draw or coin toss. The winner of that tiebreaker will face the Lady Royals in the district semifinals.

Putnam demo today at 11

ASHLAND The demolition of Putnam Stadium begins today at 11 a.m.

Serving as the first step in the rebuilding of the historic stadium, the demolition process is expected to take about three weeks.

The 76-year-old stadium has been deemed unsafe because of deteriorating concrete.

Light’s Enterprises is the contractor for the demolition.

The construction schedule calls for the rebuilt stadium to be ready for the first Ashland football home game of the 2014 season.

Information about seats and other fragments of the old stadium will be available to memorabilia collectors at putnamstadium.com.

    “Our coaches and kids, we all know it, and that’s why they’re here and we’re here, and we’re gonna push hard every day.”
