  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    LEBANON Led by their middle-school trio, the rookies played like old veterans down the stretch Monday night during the last of the 5th Region Softball Tournament’s four quarterfinals at Marion County’s Talley Field.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The Adair County Indians are into the 5th Region Baseball Tournament semifinals for the first time in 26 years.

    The Indians (26-13) built a 2-0 lead after two innings and that turned out to be more than enough for senior left-hander Jared Denton, who shut the Bardstown Bethlehem Eagles (17-20) to lead Adair County to a 5-1 victory Monday afternoon at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field.

    Denton struck out nine, while allowing only six hits and one walk.

  • 3RD REGION TOURNAMENT ROUNDUP:...

    The Meade County Green Wave are still alive in the 3rd Region Baseball Tournament – with one crazy bottom of the seventh comeback.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    When the Central Hardin coaching staff was trying to set up their rotation for the 5th Region Baseball Tournament, senior Derek Westerfield made their choice easy.

    Westerfield lobbied to get the ball and delivered with solid performance, and Central Hardin’s offense gave him plenty of support to help the Bruins to an 8-4 victory over the Green County Dragons on Monday in the region quarterfinals at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The LaRue County Hawks removed a monkey from their back Monday afternoon, and now it resides with the Elizabethtown Panthers.

    The Hawks knocked off the host Panthers, 3-1 for their first win in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament since 2008. They had lost their last three consecutive quarterfinal games.

    LaRue County (28-9) jumped out to an early lead, which was important after past region failures.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Runs could be at a premium this year in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament with the new Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution-certified bats (BBCOR), giving pitchers the edge. No where will that be truer than the quarterfinals when each team can put their ace on the mound.

    But like always, it’s not the team that has the best pitcher, but the team that has the deepest staff which will likely emerge holding the championship trophy Wednesday night.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The Central Hardin Bruins don’t have the most 5th Region championships or tournament appearances, but what the Bruins do have is the top program in the region these days.

    In a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately world, the Bruins have accomplished the most the last several years and they have the most going for them. Coaching, talent and desire to stay on top have the Bruins atop the baseball world in the region and they are in a position to stay at the top for several seasons.

  • REGION TOURNAMENTS: Dream come...

    Central Hardin assistant baseball coach Demond Thomas has experienced more than his share of memorable moments with the Bruin baseball program. The Bruins have won four 17th District championships, three 5th Region titles and last year’s state crown. But success has come at a price.

  • REGION TOURNAMENTS: Players want...

    Central Hardin sophomores Josh Krupinski and Dillon Goodman have watched their fathers win a 5th Region championship with the Lady Bruin softball program, but now they want to win one of their own.

    Josh and Dillon are members of the baseball team, which opens region tournament play against Green County at 4 p.m. today at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field. Meanwhile, their fathers – Jamie Goodman and Jody Krupinski – will be coaching the softball team, which plays Nelson County at 2 p.m. today at Marion County High School.

  • REGION TOURNAMENTS: Taylors find...

    The Memorial Day holiday weekend is a good chance for families to get together. But for the Taylors, they realize they will be divided today.

    Brice Taylor is the starting second baseman for the Elizabethtown Panthers, while his sister, Brianna, starts at the same position for the Elizabethtown softball team. Both teams will be in the 5th Region Tournament with baseball being held at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field and softball at Marion County High School.
