    Coming off a one-hit shutout loss to 10th-ranked Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park two days earlier, Elizabethtown coach Don Pitts was worried how his team would respond Wednesday evening against 17th District rival North Hardin.

    The motorcycle population in Kentucky has increased by 311 percent in the past 12 years. In the past year alone, registrations increased by 2,000.

    In 1998 prior to the helmet laws change, there were 36,000 registered bikes. Today that has grown to 112,084.

    In Hardin County, in the past 10 years motorcycle registrations increased from 1,500 to 3,349 in 2010.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central cruises past John Hardin (5/12)

    After a disappointing loss Tuesday night, the Central Hardin Bruins didn’t let it bother them for long.

    Playing less than 24 hours after a 9-7 loss to 10th-ranked Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park, when Central Hardin let a two-run lead in the final inning slip away, the fourth-ranked Bruins jumped out front early and never looked back on their way to a six-inning 14-3 pounding of the homestanding John Hardin Bulldogs in a 17th District game Wednesday evening.

    Andrea Whelan has never lacked confidence on the softball field and although later than she would have liked, Brittanie Mahanna and the rest of the North Hardin Trojans appear to be playing with that same flair and aggression.

    Mahanna was one of several Trojans with multiple hits and North Hardin used a disastrous first half-inning from John Hardin defensively as it cruised to a 4-0 win Wednesday against the homestanding Lady Bulldogs.
