  • 17TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    Fort Knox’s long layoff became even longer Monday evening when the Lady Eagles’ 17th District Softball Tournament quarterfinal against the fourth-seeded John Hardin Lady Bulldogs was delayed roughly half an hour because of thunder and lightning close to the North Hardin field.

    Once the game got going however, Olivia Greenwell made quick work of fifth-seeded Fort Knox.

    The John Hardin senior pitcher struck out five of the 15 batters she faced en route to her first career postseason perfect game as the Lady Bulldogs rolled in 4 ½ innings, 12-0.

    Nike used to use an advertising slogan saying “Chicks dig the long ball.” The ladies might like it and the North Hardin Trojans certainly do.

    The fourth-seeded Trojans used two home runs to build a four-run lead on their way to a 9-0 victory over the fifth-seeded Fort Knox Eagles in the 17th District Baseball Tournament quarterfinals Monday night at John Hardin High School.

    Ask the current Meade County Green Wave baseball players when the last time the school won a region tournament championship in baseball and the answers are nearly identical, which is not a good thing.

    “I couldn’t tell you,” senior Brenton Smith said. “I have no clue.”

    “I’m not sure,” junior Bo Wilson said.

    “I don’t know if we’ve ever won one,” junior Brady Smith said.

    When a coach gets on a team, the team is going to respond in one of two ways. Either the team answers the coach’s challenge and improves. Or the team gets down and continues down the path their on.

    LaRue County coach Chris Price admits when he jumped on the Hawks after a 3-2 home loss to Green County on April 19 he didn’t know how his team would react. The Hawks bounced back to win 12 of their next 13 games, including topping Green County, 7-5 to earn the 18th District’s top seed.

    The Central Hardin Bruins realize the position they’re in. They’re the top seed for the 17th District Baseball Tournament. They’re the team every other wants to dethrone.

    “We can’t take anything for granted because everyone’s out to beat us,” Central Hardin senior second baseman Levi McCamish said. “We know this district and no matter what happens in the regular season doesn’t matter now. We want to go into the district on a strong note.”

    All year long, LaRue County coach Aaron Howell has preached to his Lady Hawks about not letting errors snow ball.

    Too often the Lady Hawks let one error turn into two. Or three. And then the runs came.

    What often followed was a late-game collapse as the Lady Hawks lost eight games in which they led after the fifth inning.

    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.

    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.

  • MLB: Adcock to start Friday at...

    KANSAS CITY In less than nine days, former North Hardin High School standout pitcher Nate Adcock has gone from no major league starts to two.

    In his major league starting debut Saturday, Adcock worked five scoreless innings in a no-decision loss to the visiting St. Louis Cardinals in front of 32,229 fans at Kauffman Stadium.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: LaRue County...

    If Friday really was their last night playing in a LaRue County uniform, twins Lyndsay and Valerie Whitlock went out in style.

    The seniors, both in the starting batting order for the first time in eight games, reached base seven times in a combined eight plate appearance and each scored three times as the Lady Hawks ended the regular season with a 9-3 win against the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.
