  • PREP FOOTBALL: Mattingly...

    It was a blessing and a curse for Tim Mattingly, but more so the latter at the time.

    When Mattingly was hired by Central Hardin to be its head football coach Feb. 11, he put his house in Meade County on the market.

    It sold in two weeks. One week later, he took a day off from school to move his family into an apartment in Elizabethtown.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Refreshed and re-...

    Mark Brown decided to walk away from coaching after the 2012 season. After spending 12 years at John Hardin and more than 30 years in the business, he wrestled with the idea in mind for some time.

  • PREP BASEBALL/WRESTLING: John...

    When it came to filling two of its coaching vacancies, John Hardin reached into its not-so-distant past for new baseball and wrestling coaches.

    The two hires have deep ties to John Hardin, which is what stood out the most, according to athletic director Mike McCune.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: EABC 11s come...

    The top-seeded Southeastern Lexington 11-year-old All-Stars have steam-rolled through most of their competition this summer, so the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission All-Stars had a goal Sunday to see how far and how hard they could push the Eastern Kentucky champions.

    And for a while, the hosts had the juggernaut on its heels.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: Meade County...

    From receiving an invitation to join the 12-team field to the verge of playing for the tournament championship, not many expected to find the Meade County 11-year-old All-Stars making it to the final day of the Ohio Valley Regional.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: EABC 8s fall in...

    After going undefeated in pool play and then winning their first two games in the single-elimination tournament in the Ohio Valley Regional, the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission 8-year-old All-Stars ran out of gas in Sunday’s championship game.

    Prairie Village ended EABC’s undefeated All-Star campaign with a 13-5 win at Vann Road Park in Newburgh, Ind.

  • YOUTH SWIMMING: Dugan, Pepper...

    T.J. Dugan ended the 13-and-over Kentucky Long Course State Championship with a bang for the E’town Dolphins on Sunday.

    The 14-year-old Dugan had three top-five finishes at the E’town Swim and Fitness Center, placing third in the boys’ 13-14 200-meter backstroke, third in the 13-14 200 IM and fourth in in the 13-14 100 freestyle.

  • YOUTH SWIMMING: Min grabs silver...

    After Mary Pepper gave the host E’town Dolphins their first gold medal Thursday in the opening day of the four-day Kentucky Long Course State Championship for 13-and-over competitors at E’town Swim & Fitness Center, a younger teammate nearly gave the Dolphins their second gold medal Saturday.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: EABC 11s hold on...

    The Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission 11-year-old All-Stars haven’t had much success in close games, but that seems to be turning around at the right time.

    The EABC All-Stars built a 5-1 victory and held on for a 5-3 victory over Southern Illinois champion Charleston on Saturday afternoon in the Ohio Valley Regional at the Elizabethtown Sports Park.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: Elkins knocks...

    Coleman Clark lined a single to right-center field to drive in Austin Heideman, and the third-base dugout that was filled with the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission 13-year-old All-Stars erupted with loud cheers Saturday morning.

    For the first time in the Ohio Valley Regional, EABC wasn’t playing catch up.
