  • ON CAMPUS: Hinton named All-...

    Transylvania senior Clay Hinton, a former Elizabethtown star, was named to the PING First-Team All-America for Division III on Friday by the Golf Coaches’ Association of America.

    Hinton was also selected to the Division III PING Great Lakes All-Region Team by the GCAA after posting a Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference-leading scoring average of 73.1 this season for the Pioneers. It was the third time Hinton was named to the Great Lakes All-Region Team in his career.

  • PREP ROUNDUP: Meade County...

    The Meade County Lady Waves breezed their way to their fourth straight 11th District Softball Tournament championship on Tuesday night.

    Top-seeded Meade County pounded out seven doubles as it mercy-ruled second-seeded Hancock County for the third time this season in an 11-1 win at Breckinridge County.

    Seniors Chaselyn Allgeier and Ashley Nikolao and sophomore Katie Wilson each doubled twice for the Lady Waves (25-11), who jumped out to a 9-0 lead after two innings. Junior Madison Haynes also doubled for Meade County, which finished with 14 hits.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    It didn’t really matter which pitcher North Hardin used in the circle Tuesday night. Seeking a bit of redemption, Elizabethtown hit circles around all four of the Trojans’ hurlers.

    Sophomore Brooke Chancey went 3-for-3 with three RBIs, while freshmen Sarah Beth Hun­dley and Callie Sondergard also had three RBIs as the second-

    seeded Lady Panthers thumped their way to a 15-0 win over the third-

    seeded Trojans in less than three full innings in the 17th District Tournament’s late semifinal on post.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Green rallies...

    GREENSBURG — The LaRue County Lady Hawks’ backs were against the wall.

    Top-seeded Green County pushed across two runs and had loaded the bases against junior starting pitcher Emillee Cundiff, slicing LaRue County’s four-run lead to two in the bottom of the seventh inning, so Lady Hawks coach Aaron Howell called on senior Brigitte Skaggs to close it out.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Bats spark...

    The Central Hardin Bruins picked the right time to get their bats on track.

    The second-seeded Bruins pounded out 15 hits, including two doubles and two triples, on their way to a convincing 16-3 rout of the N third-seeded North Hardin Trojans on Tuesday night in the 17th District Baseball Tournament semifinals at Ron Myers Field.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Panthers rout...

    The way Elizabethtown sophomore Hunter Sullivan was pitching Tuesday, it allowed the Panthers to focus on their offense.

    Sullivan struck out seven of the first eight hitters he faced and the top-seeded Panthers pounded out 11 hits en route to a 15-3 victory over the fourth-seeded John Hardin Bulldogs in the 17th District Baseball Tournament semifinals at Ron Myers Field.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    Having looked at scores around the state, Central Hardin knew if it didn’t come ready to play in the postseason, it could very easily make an early exit just like annual state tournament title contender Owensboro Catholic and perennial State qualifier Magoffin County.

    The Lady Bruins weren’t in much danger of joining other top teams on the bench though, not with the way juniors Shelby Maggard and Kelsey McGuffin were swinging the bats Tuesday evening.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Hart County slips...

    GREENSBURG — Monday night had a similar feeling to one year ago, but unfortunately for the LaRue County Hawks, the ending wasn’t nearly as fulfilling.

    Trailing third-seeded Hart County by a run in the bottom of the seventh inning, second-seeded LaRue County put two on with two out, but freshman Cameron Dawson’s fly ball was caught in deep center field for the final out to give the Raiders a 4-3 victory in the 18th District Tournament semifinals at Green County American Legion Park.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Johnson, LaRue...

    GREENSBURG — The LaRue County Lady Hawks are ready for Round 3 with the Green County Lady Dragons.

    After surviving a scare in Monday’s late semifinal of the 18th District Softball Tournament, the Lady Hawks can’t wait to get another crack at the top-seeded Lady Dragons.

    Senior Courtney Johnson hit a two-run home run and drove in four runs as the second-seeded Lady Hawks held off third-seeded Hart County, 13-8 at Green County American Legion Park.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Pope, Bulldogs...

    It took John Hardin freshman Darian Pope some time to get into a rhythm on the mound, but he didn’t have any such trouble with the bat.

    Pope found his groove at the plate, sparking John Hardin’s offense and helping the Bulldogs to a 7-1 victory over the Fort Knox Eagles in the 17th District Tournament quarterfinal at Ron Myers Field.
