    Central Hardin senior Derek Westerfield missed a golden opportunity to stake the Bruins to a lead in the third inning.

    Given a second chance in the seventh, Westerfield took full advantage of it.

    Westerfield launched a two-run home run in the top of the seventh inning to lift the Bruins to a 4-2 victory over the LaRue County Hawks on Saturday in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament championship at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field.

    Karisa Akin was looking forward to playing in her hometown Lady Bug Invitational later this month as a tune-up for the Women’s Kentucky State Golf Amateur Championship, which she won last year.

    Instead, the former Central Hardin High School star will do her State Am preparations hundreds of miles away in a major national event.

    Two days after playing a U.S. Women’s Open qualifier in St. Louis, Akin finished first out of 13 participants Thursday in a U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship at Shoal Creek Golf Club in Kansas City, Mo.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Mother Nature has intervened once again in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament.

    After rains forced the semifinals to be postponed a day Tuesday, heavy storms Thursday forced the championship game between Central Hardin and LaRue County to be called in the second inning. The game will be picked up where it left off at 6:30 p.m. today at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field.

  • BASEBALL: Delabar demoted to...

    Fresh off a 21-8 win over AL West rival Texas on Wednesday night, Stevie Delabar wasn’t expecting the news he received in the Seattle Mariners clubhouse following the game.

    The Mariners were demoting the former Central Hardin High School standout back to Triple-A Tacoma.

    “It’s a bummer,” the 28-year-old Delabar said Thursday. “We just scored 21 runs and there’s all this excitement, and then they bring you in and tell you ‘Hey, we’re making a move.’ It’s just one of those things.”

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    LEBANON For the second time in three years, the Green County Lady Dragons blazed a trail to the Rawlings/KHSAA Softball State Tournament.

    Senior pitcher Summer Rattliff, an Asbury University signee, struck out eight and carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning against 20th District Tournament champion Marion County as the 18th District champion Lady Dragons topped the host Lady Knights, 3-1 in the 5th Region Softball Tournament championship game on Wednesday night at Talley Field.

    OWENSBOROOn the back of the T-shirts worn by the Meade County players are three words: Play in June.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Central Hardin sophomore Josh Krupinski was efficient and effective. The Bruins’ offense didn’t have the same efficiency, but the result was the same nonetheless.

    Krupinski tossed a one-hitter and the Bruins scratched out enough runs to support him as they downed the Campbellsville Eagles, 4-1 in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament’s late semifinal Wednesday night at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The LaRue County Hawks punched their ticket emphatically to the 5th Region Baseball Tournament championship Wednesday night.

    The Hawks used an opportunistic offense and an outstanding pitching performance by senior Wesley Kessinger to cruise to an 11-1 mercy-rule victory over the Adair County Indians in the early semifinal at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The 5th Region Baseball Tournament had an unscheduled day off Tuesday, but the coaches don’t see it as a big deal.

    While both coaches admit they’d rather not have a break in the tournament, Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson and LaRue County coach Chris Price both said it’s the same for the four remaining teams. It’s not ideal, but there’s nothing to do when Mother Nature calls.

  • 3RD REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Bo Wilson isn’t one to shy away from wanting the ball in a big game.

    Tuesday was no exception as the Meade County senior right-hander led the Green Wave to the championship of the 3rd Region Baseball Tournament.

    Wilson struck out 13 and scattered four hits as Meade County knocked off the defending region champion Owensboro Apollo Eagles, 8-3 in the first semifinal at Shifley Park in Owensboro.

    Wilson (9-2) fanned eight hitters in the final three innings.  He allowed two walks and one earned run.
