  • PREP BASEBALL: Bruins'...

    It took more than 28 hours, but Central Hardin’s 5th Region reign finally came to an end.

    The Bruins, who had won four consecutive region titles and five of the last six, saw a chance at a fifth straight slip away as the Bardstown Bethlehem Eagles rallied for a 6-5 victory Tuesday night in the region quarterfinals at Central Park.

    “They’re a quality ball club,” Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson said. “They kept battling. You have to tip your hat to them. The ball just didn’t bounce our way tonight.”

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    MUNFORDVILLE — Central Hardin has earned the right to be considered among the state’s top teams because of its strong play but Tuesday night, the fourth-ranked Lady Bruins needed two unearned runs to keep their dreams of their first state tournament title alive.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Ayer's two...

    The Meade County Lady Waves moved on in the 3rd Region Softball Tournament on Monday as star sophomore Rachel Ayer moved toward a KHSAA single-season record.

    Already the record holder for most home runs in a single game with four, Ayer hit two homers in the same inning as the 11th District Tournament champion Lady Waves cruised past the 10th District Tournament runner-up McLean County Lady Cougars, 10-0 in six innings in the region quarterfinals at Owensboro Apollo.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    MUNFORDVILLE — About the only thing that could slow down the Central Hardin Lady Bruins’ dominance over another 5th Region foe Monday afternoon was a 48-minute storm delay.

    But once April Pence, Kelsey McGuffin and the rest of the Lady Bruins took the field at Hart County for good, they were off and running toward their 33rd straight win against region competition.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    MUNFORDVILLE — Round after round Monday, Elizabethtown found ways to stay in the ring with one of the 5th Region’s heavyweights.

    However, Green County finally landed a haymaker to knock out the young Lady Panthers.

    The 18th District Tournament champion Lady Dragons hit two triples in their seven-run bottom of the sixth, putting the 17th District runner-up Lady Panthers all but out for the count in the top of the seventh as Green County emerged with an 8-1 win in the 5th Region Softball Tournament quarterfinals at Hart County.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Smiley delivers...

    Preston Smiley knew exactly what was coming.

    And with the game on the line, there’s no better feeling for a hitter. Smiley was sitting on a fastball and got one right down the middle. The Meade County sophomore third baseman hit a sinking line drive to straightaway center field.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central's...

    The Central Hardin Bruins aren’t getting much help from Mother Nature these days. For the second time in less than a week, the Bruins have had a postseason game suspended because of weather.

    Central Hardin’s game against Bardstown Bethlehem in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament was stopped at 5:09 p.m. Monday because of lightning and then it rained for 45 minutes, forcing tournament officials to suspend the game in the top of the third inning.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Patterson's...

    Elizabethtown senior Preston Patterson lit the fuse Monday afternoon and the Panthers exploded like a powder keg.

    With the Panthers off to a slow start through two innings, Patterson blasted a grand slam in the bottom of the third to get Elizabethtown off and running toward a 10-0 rout of the Nelson County Cardinals in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament at Central Park.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central's...

    The Central Hardin Bruins watched hit after hit in Tuesday’s 17th District Baseball Tournament semifinal with two distinct different feelings. On one hand, they were in amazement of what they were able to do against the North Hardin Trojans, who they had struggled to generate many runs against. On the other, this is the offense they envisioned at the start of the season, but it’s been a long and windy road to get to this point.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Meade County...

    The Meade County Green Wave are still haunted by how last season ended. They were in position to win their second consecutive 3rd Region Baseball Tournament championship, but something as simple as a passed ball cost them a chance at victory.

    It’s been 362 days, but just the mention of that 1-0 loss to Owensboro Apollo brings up the disappointment and frustration as if it happened yesterday.
