ISSUE: All sports honor
OUR VIEW: Deserved recognition for all the schools
Each school year, thousands of area student-athletes take to the field of play in their particular sports, driving to make themselves and their school the best that they can be.
Last year, no school did it better than Elizabethtown High School, the winner of the first Tri-County Cup, which recognizes the success of athletic teams with a formula based on how well, for example, each team does in district, region and state tournament play.
The first winner resides on Panther Lane.
Elizabethtown displayed what all schools should strive for: a balanced athletic department.
Elizabethtown was able to perform at a high level in boys and girls sports, something that makes for a well-rounded athletic program.
The school and its student-athletes should be commended for their successes and their efforts on the field of play.
Central Hardin High School enjoyed a big year as well with its baseball and softball teams capturing region championships and the golf team making another banner state tournament showing.
North Hardin, John Hardin, Meade County, LaRue County and Fort Knox are the other schools who make up the field for the The News-Enterprise’s Tri-County Cup.
Also, schools and student-athletes deserve a pat on the back for their commitment to field quality athletic programs. It’s a lot of work and tireless hours of preparation for most coaches and it’s a huge undertaking deciding to compete in high school athletics with the demands on time for youngsters.
But there is plenty of reward for entering the field of competition.
For Elizabethtown High School, one of the rewards was being recognized as the first Tri-County Cup champions.
