  • 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.

  • PREP BASEBALL: E'town has...

    Contrary to popular belief, the Elizabethtown Panthers didn’t struggle because of their pitching or defense in 2012.

    Sure, it’s easy to blame the pitching, considering the Panthers allowed 10 or more runs in 10 games or point to the defense, since they allowed 225, which was fifth-worst in the region that season.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    Each player for Central Hardin Lady Bruins realizes while there is an actual number of the back of their jerseys, there’s also an invisible X, target or bull’s-eye.

    That’s what happens by playing for a team which is ranked fourth in the state and has won 32 straight games against 5th Region competition.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers have grown up a lot in just two short years.

    Featuring a host of youngsters, the Lady Panthers made a splash in 2012 when they opened the season 2-10 and yet were still able to end their program’s long 5th Region Softball Tournament drought by stunning North Hardin in the 17th District semifinals.

    “We were just so shocked that we even made it coming out as an underdog against North,” said Elizabethtown catcher Brooke Chancey.
