Today's Sports

  • YOUTH BASEBALL NATIONALS:...

    The Elizabethtown Sports Park is diverse in what events it can host. As of this week’s Athletx Youth Baseball Natio-nals, those sports included baseball, cross country, football, lacrosse, soccer and softball.

    There is no boxing ring, but Saturday afternoon, an out-of-state man made sure there was a ring in a box.

  • STATE FARM E'TOWN OPEN:...

    Coming to Freeman Lake Park to play in the State Farm E’town Open is part business, part pleasure for Colin Hart.

    A KHSAA All-State selection this past season at Lincoln County, the 2014 graduate and Eastern Kentucky University signee has an aunt, uncle and cousins who live in Elizabethtown.

    yler Edlin feels his best tennis is ahead of him, while Tyrone Sparks feels lucky to even be taking the court at this stage in his career.

    Together, the duo makes up half of the men’s open singles semifinalists heading into today’s final day of play at the State Farm E’town Open.

  • Central names Wright new AD (7/6)

    J.C. Wright doesn’t know how long he’ll continue coaching, but he realized he wanted to remain active with athletics.

    “Come sit with your angels, and give us some time.

    Forgive us this fragile state of mind, it’s all right.”

  • PREP GOLF: Elizabethtown's...

    COLUMBUS, Ind. — Elizabeth-town junior Lauren Hartlage finished the final round Thursday with a 2-over 218 over 54 holes to win the girls’ division at the Under Armour/Jeff Overton Championship at the 6,149-yard, par-72 Otter Creek Golf Course.

    “I was really nervous this morning before the round because I knew my lead was small,” Hartlage said.

  • ALL-AREA BASEBALL: Panthers...

    To the victor goes the spoils.

    The Elizabethtown Panthers posted the area’s best record at 28-8 and won the 17th District and 5th Region tournaments. It was their first region title since 2009 and first district championship since 2008.

  • ALL-AREA SOFTBALL: Central...

    Central Hardin’s infield was outstanding this year.

    The 17th District Tournament champion and 5th Region Tournament runner-up Lady Bruins had five players make the All-Area Softball Team and all five saw time in the infield.

    Leading the way were junior shortstop Kelsey McGuffin and senior Jessica Nall. McGuffin repeated as Player of the Year as voted on by the seven area coaches and four members of The News-Enterprise sports department, and Nall repeated as Pitcher of the Year while finishing second in Player of the Year.

  • ALL-AREA TENNIS: Bulldogs'...

    The ability has been there for Tyler Edlin. Several trips per week to Louisville to hit with high-level players developed his skills so much so that he could overwhelm area opponents with his sheer power as a junior.

    But for the John Hardin senior to take his game to another level this year, he started concentrating on what went on between his ears rather than on the court.

    In other words, he focused on his mental approach. The result was another dominating season.

  • ALL-AREA TENNIS: Lady Panthers...

    Natalie Fiepke’s senior season wasn’t exactly how she’d have drawn it up last August.

    Injuries throughout soccer and tennis seasons hampered her, but she fought back with a fury.

    Thanks to a strong finish, Fiepke was the unanimous choice among area coaches for Area Girls’ Player of the Year. She received six first-place votes to earn 30 points. Voting was done on a 5-3-1 scale. A first-place vote was worth five points and coaches couldn’t vote for their own players.
