  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    David Robbins’ dream was to run a high school varsity program. Central Hardin gave him that opportunity two years ago.

    But with Robbins and his wife, Jennifer, expecting their second child in September, Robbins realized a difficult decision loomed and his choice shouldn’t come as a shock. Robbins, who has preached family first during his time at Central Hardin, resigned Tuesday.

  • COLLEGE TRACK: Stockton leads...

    Joey Stockton’s Campbellsville University Tigers achieved a first Saturday, earning the program’s first men’s outdoor track and field title by winning the 16-team University of the Cumberlands Invitational in Williamsburg. Stockton’s Lady Tigers were third out of 15 teams.

  • MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Rookies...

    KANSAS CITY – If first impressions mean anything, the Kansas City bullpen – littered with rookies and their common haircuts – is in good hands. Make that good arms.

    The Royals took a chance with their bullpen, putting four rookies in it. But the youthful relievers have been dominant through the first week of the season and the bullpen has picked up all four wins.

  • MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Royals...

    KANSAS CITY – Don’t look now but the Kansas City Royals are tied for second place in the American League Central.

    The Major League season is less than two weeks old, but the Royals are 5-3 and only one-half game behind the division-leading Cleveland Indians, who played at Seattle late Saturday night.

    “I’ve never had more fun playing baseball than I’ve had this week,” Kansas City first baseman Billy Butler said. “This team just feels like it will find a way to win. We never give up.”

  • MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Adcock...

    KANSAS CITY – When Nathan Adcock walked into the spacious Kansas City Royals’ clubhouse, he was in awe of his surroundings. After spending five years climbing the minor league ladder, Adcock had reached the ultimate destination.

    But as Adcock walked over to his locker – the biggest locker he says he’s had – the first thing he noticed wasn’t the jersey hanging with his last name on it or the numerous Kansas City gear hanging up.

    “There was a UK jacket in there,” Adcock said.

  • PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Lady...

    Elizabethtown scored plenty of runs on its way to taking the Louisville Southern Spring Break Invitational over the weekend. The Lady Panthers scored 51 runs in five games and finished 4-0-1 in the tournament, including a 14-9 victory over Southern in the championship game to avenge a tie in their tournament opener.

    SATURDAY’S MATCHES

  • PREP BASEBALL ROUNDUP: North...

    The North Hardin Trojans went 1-2 over the weekend in the Bowling Green/Warren County Invitational.

    North Hardin (7-5) lost to Bowling Green, 2-1 on Saturday and split its Friday games – a 13-12 win over Jackson County in eight innings, and a 12-11 loss to South Warren in nine innings.

    n After racking up 34 hits in Friday’s games, the Trojans were held to two – singles by Brady Patterson and Isaac Coty – against Bowling Green.

    Tyler Hinds (2-1) struck out four and gave up six hits, three walks and two earned runs.

  • OPINION: Adcock's nerves...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Nathan Adcock doesn’t get nervous, especially with the ball in his hand when he steps on the mound. That is where he feels the most comfortable.

    That’s his home away from home.

    Adcock has pitched a number of big games. He relishes the role of delivering a victory for his team in the most critical circumstances.

  • MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Adcock...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – It’s been a long, hard road for Nathan Adcock. Success hasn’t come overnight for a fifth-round pick in the 2006 draft, but it’s been a grind. It’s been just as hard on family members being there for the highs and lows.

    Adcock, who has spent the last five years in the minor leagues, has made countless phone calls during that time – most of them in the late night hours. Some were to let the family know how a particular start went. Some were more difficult as Adcock questioned what he was doing.
