  • 11TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    Mike Harreld was less than pleased the last time Meade County faced a 3rd Region opponent, but the Lady Waves’ longtime leader is pleased with how his team responded.

    Meade County took a five-game winning streak into Owensboro on May 16 and left with a 4-1 loss to the lightly-heralded Daviess County Lady Panthers, who were 10-18 at the time and were shutout four times in a five-game stretch in late April.

  • 17TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    With all due respect to Pat Benatar, if the rest of the 17th District teams have hit Central Hardin with their best shot, the 11th-ranked Lady Bruins are still waiting for them to fire away.

    The Lady Bruins steamrolled their way to the top seed for this week’s district tournament at North Hardin, sweeping their seven regular-season games against district teams by a combined score of 75-2. Only one game went seven innings – another was technically 6½ – and the Lady Bruins won it, 7-0.

    James Webb needs to make room in an already-crowded trophy case.

    The host North Hardin boys’ track team won its fourth consecutive Class 3-A, Region 2 championship Saturday in overwhelming fashion.

  • GIRLS' PREP TRACK &...

    Brianna Woodson was down to her last attempt in the long jump when she had to check in the 400-meter relay during Saturday’s Class 3-A, Region 2 meet.

    After teaming with sophomores Jazmine Byrd and Tamara Jenkins and freshman Raven Graves to win that race, the North Hardin junior made her way over to the Jeter-McKinney Track Complex jump pit.

    When she left, Woodson was third behind Bowling Green freshman Sydnie Anthony and Central Hardin senior Drew Crawford. When she returned, Woodson cleared 16 feet, 5 inches to win by 9 1/2 feet over Anthony.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Eastern shuts out...

    Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson didn’t mince his words following the Bruins’ embarrassing 11-0 loss to the Louisville Eastern Eagles in their regular-season home finale Friday night in a battle of top five teams.

    “We needed that,” Thompson said. “We flat-out needed it. I’m glad it happened. We haven’t learned anything from several wins. We learned enough tonight over 15 wins.
