  • PREP BASEBALL ROUNDUP: LaRue...

    The LaRue County Hawks won their fourth straight after beating 5th Region foe Marion County for the second time this season Wednesday.

    Senior Kyle Meredith had a single, triple, two RBIs, two stolen bases and scored three times to lead the Hawks to a 6-1 victory in Lebanon.

    Senior Jesse Johnson tripled, drove in a run and stole a base, while senior Steven Carpenter doubled, scored twice and stole two bases. Senior Slade Owens added an RBI single for LaRue County (8-2).

  • PREP WRESTLING: LaRue's...

    As a kid, Nick Paden set the goal of wrestling under the lights in the state tournament. He had grown up watching former LaRue County standouts like Todd Allen, Scott and Andrew Cooper, Jason Detre, Ozzy Parker and Darwin Perez getting that chance and wanted to experience it for himself.

    Though the senior 120-pounder came up short in his quest to add his name to the list of LaRue County state champions, Paden was able to cross an achievement off his list.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Goedde, Central...

    More than a bit peeved after her 0-for-4 performance Monday, Abbi Goedde went home and took out her frustrations in her hitting building.

    On Tuesday, the Central Hardin third baseman took out some more on visiting John Hardin.

    The senior leadoff hitter crushed a double and a triple both in Central Hardin’s nine-run first inning and the 10th-ranked Lady Bruins had 14 hits in 30 plate appearances as Central Hardin opened 17th District play with a 15-0 win over the Lady Bulldogs in technically less than three complete innings.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: North Hardin...

    Donnie Baker doesn’t know how the North Hardin Trojans keep squeaking out these extra-inning one-run games.

    But he’s loving his team’s late heroics. It’s making their old, veteran coach start to feel like a kid again.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Bulldogs edge...

    Zach Miller thought he had caught the foul ball off the bat of North Hardin senior Andrew Boyles.

    The John Hardin junior catcher dove for the ball Tuesday, appeared to catch it and held it up for the home plate umpire to see. But after conferring with the other umpire, it was ruled a foul ball and the at-bat continued.

    Even as the Trojans put two runners on base trailing by a run in the top of the seventh, Miller was confident the Bulldogs were in good hands with senior Sam Brashear on the mound.

  • PREP BASEBALL/SOFTBALL ROUNDUP:...

    Freshman Javier Echevarria had a big day at the plate as the host North Hardin Trojans cruised to a lopsided victory over the Hart County Raiders on Monday.

    Echevarria hit a three-run homer in the third, doubled, scored twice and drove in four runs as the Trojans blasted the Raiders, 11-2.

    Seniors Antonio Simmons and Andrew Boyles combined to go 7-for-8 with five runs scored. Simmons had a double and an RBI, while Boyles had three singles and scored three times.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    On paper, the 10th-ranked Central Hardin softball team should be wearing down by now. In reality, April Pence, Baylee Sullivan and the rest of the Lady Bruins are just hitting their stride.

  • PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Central...

    The 10th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins fell behind in the first inning in both of their games Saturday in Allen County-Scottsville’s Halton Classic but rallied to win both, earning a 6-1 win in six innings against East Robertson (Tenn.) before rallying for a 6-5 win in six innings against Louisville Sacred Heart in their last game.

    * Against East Robertson, sophomore April Pence (5-2) settled down after giving up a leadoff home run, striking out six, walking two and scattering three singles the rest of the way.
