  • PREP TENNIS: Lincoln Heritage...


  • PREP TENNIS: Winning is just old...

    Natalie Fiepke never wears a hat on the tennis court.

    But on a whim Wednesday, she tried out a new fashion statement and broke out a blue Elizabethtown one to shield the sun during the Lincoln Heritage Conference Tournament’s opening round.

  • PREP TENNIS: Tuesday's...



  • PREP TENNIS: Lincoln Heritage...

    Winning last year’s Lincoln Heritage Conference Tennis Tournament boys’ singles championship as the No. 3 seed changed Reza Haider’s entire season.

    That’s when he banished the negative thoughts and developed a positive approach, a move which guided him to his individual title.


    Five players collected at least two hits and visiting North Hardin erupted for 13 runs in the fourth inning en route to an 18-8 six-inning win over 17th District rival Fort Knox on Tuesday.

    Senior Antonio Simmons went 4-for-5 with a double, two RBIs and three runs, while senior Brady Patterson had two doubles and two runs. Freshman Javier Echevarria had two singles, two runs and three RBIs, and junior Jamaal Wilson went 2-for-2 with three runs and two RBIs for the Trojans (13-5 overall, 3-2 district).

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Mercy edges...

    As a 1996 Central Hardin High School graduate and a former Lady Bruin softball assistant, Josh Bloomer likes the chance to come home.

    What doesn’t exactly thrill him, however, is when it takes his current team – the reigning state tournament runner-up Louisville Mercy Jaguars – a while to reach home.

    After being stifled by Central Hardin sophomore Jessica Nall for eight innings Tuesday night, the third-ranked Jaguars finally got to the No. 15 Lady Bruins in the top of the ninth and eventually emerged with a 2-0 win.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central shuts out...

    Central Hardin junior Drew Harrington had no trouble getting into a groove on the mound Tuesday. It took the Bruins’ offense a little longer to get going, but it was more than enough for Harrington.

    Harrington had a good feeling when he was warming up in the bullpen and it translated into a successful day on the mound as he struck out 15 to help the Bruins to a 6-0 victory over the homestanding John Hardin Bulldogs in a 17th District game.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    Eighth-grader Erin Boley blasted a grounder for a double in the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ first at-bat.

    Senior Andrew Boyles’ torrid stretch continued Monday as the North Hardin Trojans slipped past 5th Region foe Taylor County, 5-4.

    Boyles hit a solo home run in the top of the seventh and also picked up the win in relief as the Trojans (12-5) won for the eighth time in 10 games. He was a double shy of the cycle at the plate and struck out one in relief of freshman Javier Echevarria to record his third win.

    Senior Antonio Simmons went 2-for-3 with a double and a run, while senior Brady Patterson also hit a solo homer and scored twice.
