  • PREP WEIGHT LIFTING: Fort Knox...

    Weight lifting hasn’t yet caught on in the Bluegrass, but it’s a growing sport at Fort Knox High School.

    Two Fort Knox athletes won national championships March 30 in the Natural Athlete Strength Association’s High School Nationals in Oklahoma City.

    Senior Josh Kleber won his weight class and was named the meet’s Outstanding Male Lifter, while junior Demyja Holmes won two events and placed second in another en route to being named the meet’s Outstanding Female Lifter.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Rineker named...

    There’s a comfort level for Bill Rineker with the Central Hardin Lady Bruins’ volleyball program.

    He’s spent nearly a decade with the program, assisting with practices, helping develop new drills and working to improve players’ full potential.

    WEDNESDAY’S SCORES

  • PREP TENNIS: Winning is just old...

    Natalie Fiepke never wears a hat on the tennis court.

    But on a whim Wednesday, she tried out a new fashion statement and broke out a blue Elizabethtown one to shield the sun during the Lincoln Heritage Conference Tournament’s opening round.

    BOYS’ PREP

  • PREP TENNIS: Lincoln Heritage...

    Winning last year’s Lincoln Heritage Conference Tennis Tournament boys’ singles championship as the No. 3 seed changed Reza Haider’s entire season.

    That’s when he banished the negative thoughts and developed a positive approach, a move which guided him to his individual title.

  • PREP BASEBALL/PREP SOFTBALL...

    Five players collected at least two hits and visiting North Hardin erupted for 13 runs in the fourth inning en route to an 18-8 six-inning win over 17th District rival Fort Knox on Tuesday.

    Senior Antonio Simmons went 4-for-5 with a double, two RBIs and three runs, while senior Brady Patterson had two doubles and two runs. Freshman Javier Echevarria had two singles, two runs and three RBIs, and junior Jamaal Wilson went 2-for-2 with three runs and two RBIs for the Trojans (13-5 overall, 3-2 district).

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Mercy edges...

    As a 1996 Central Hardin High School graduate and a former Lady Bruin softball assistant, Josh Bloomer likes the chance to come home.

    What doesn’t exactly thrill him, however, is when it takes his current team – the reigning state tournament runner-up Louisville Mercy Jaguars – a while to reach home.

    After being stifled by Central Hardin sophomore Jessica Nall for eight innings Tuesday night, the third-ranked Jaguars finally got to the No. 15 Lady Bruins in the top of the ninth and eventually emerged with a 2-0 win.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central shuts out...

    Central Hardin junior Drew Harrington had no trouble getting into a groove on the mound Tuesday. It took the Bruins’ offense a little longer to get going, but it was more than enough for Harrington.

    Harrington had a good feeling when he was warming up in the bullpen and it translated into a successful day on the mound as he struck out 15 to help the Bruins to a 6-0 victory over the homestanding John Hardin Bulldogs in a 17th District game.
