    Searching for the perfect recipe to win the 5th Region Baseball Tournament is not an exact science. There are many factors to consider, but when trying to pick a favorite most coaches start in the 17th District.

    “Year in, year out, you have to consider the 17th District first,” North Hardin coach Greg Gumm said.

    John Hardin coach Adam Lindsey has never felt this way entering a season in his four years with the baseball program.

    Lindsey can’t contain his excitement when he discusses the Bulldogs, who return six starters from last year’s 13-13 squad.

    “These kids have played together for four years and some of these kids have started two or three years,” Lindsey said. “They are a close-knit group, closer than we’ve had since I’ve been here.

    LaRue County doesn’t go through rebuilding years often, but the Hawks could be in for one this season.

    The Hawks, who went 15-15 last season and won their ninth consecutive 18th District title, have plenty of holes, including nearly their entire pitching staff, and they will be relying on a number of underclassmen to fill those positions.

    Karissa Jackson wants her senior year to be just as successful as her freshman and sophomore years were.

    Fort Knox went 18-15 in 2007 and 19-16 in 2008, the team’s best two seasons in the last nine years. Jackson, who’s been with the team since she was a sixth-grader, felt the Lady Eagles took a step backward with a 7-18 campaign last year.

    LEXINGTON — A star was born Thursday evening during the PNC/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen State Basketball Tournament. That star was North Hardin sophomore Jermaine Ruttley, the young Trojan guard who has grown by leaps and bounds this season and was at his best in the final two games of the season. Ruttley’s statistics weren’t gaudy. Ruttley had nine po

    By GREG CREWS gcrews@thenewsenterprise.com Every member of the North Hardin boys’ basketball team has likely dreamed about stepping onto the hardwood of Rupp Arena in the state tournament. But when the Trojans finally get the chance to play in the home of the Kentucky Wildcats, they won’t have much time to take in the moment — not with their first-round o

    RADCLIFF — North Hardin coach Ron Bevars wondered if he’d ever get the program he built into a perennial 5th Region power back to the PNC/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen State Basketball Tournament. The Trojans made 11 trips to the state tournament from 1981-2003. In a span from 1990-2003, they completely dominated the region, winning nine championships in 14 years.
