  • 3RD REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The Meade County Lady Waves avoided a certain powerhouse team from Owensboro during Saturday’s 3rd Region Softball Tournament draw meeting at tournament host Daviess County.

    However, longtime Meade County coach Mike Harreld is unsure getting stuck with Option B is such a great thing.

    The Lady Waves (22-15), the 11th District Tournament champions, meet the 9th District runner-up Apollo Lady Eagles (19-17) in the second of Monday’s four quarterfinals at 1 p.m. Meade County earned a 5-3 win over the visiting Lady Eagles on April 17.

  • 3RD REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT...

    Meade County baseball coach Todd Clanton came out of Saturday’s 3rd Region Tournament draw meeting at host Owensboro Apollo confident. Although he might have wanted to replace that ‘c’ with a ‘k’.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The Elizabethtown Panthers and LaRue County Hawks are no strangers to one another, especially when it comes to the postseason.

    The 18th District champion Hawks (27-9) swept the regular-season series with Elizabethtown, but the Panthers (14-22) have a shot at revenge as the teams will meet at 11 a.m. in Monday’s first quarterfinal of the 5th Region Baseball Tournament.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    LEBANONMatt Mardis’ inaugural trip to a 5th Region Softball Tournament draw meeting was fairly ho-hum Saturday morning at Marion County, site of this week’s eight-team single-elimination tournament.

    And as it turned out, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ third-year coach had the best touch – none.

  • BASKETBALL: Vine Grove...

    The Vine Grove High School Blue Devils are still close — even after 60 years.

    In 1952, the basketball team won the 23rd District and 6th Region tournaments, and marked a moment in history as the only team at Vine Grove to advance to the KHSAA Sweet Sixteen.

    But its record success is not the only famous marker of the team. The players, as well as the cheerleaders, foster a singularly close bond.

  • 18TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    With Kasey Estes stepping into the pitcher’s circle in the 18th District Softball Tournament championship game, the LaRue County Lady Hawks were behind the 8-ball Thursday.

    The second-seeded Lady Hawks hadn’t faced top-seeded Green County’s senior ace this season, and it showed.

    Estes threw a no-hitter, pitching around two errors and a walk, to lead the Lady Dragons to a 4-0 win over tournament host LaRue County.

  • 18TH DISTRICT BASEBALL...

    LaRue County still can’t be dethroned from the 18th District Baseball Tournament winner’s circle.

    After winning their 11th straight championship, the Hawks have a little bit of their swagger back.

  • 17TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    Because his son, Dillon, was playing in the 17th District Baseball Tournament final up the road less than 2 hours after his team was scheduled to host the second-seeded Elizabethtown Lady Panthers in the 17th District Softball Tournament’s championship game, Central Hardin Lady Bruins coach Jamie Goodman had little time to waste Wednesday night.

  • 17TH DISTRICT BASEBALL...

    The Central Hardin Bruins are turning the 17th District Baseball Tournament into the Central Hardin Invitational.

    The Bruins took a lead they would never relinquish in the bottom of the first and sophomore Josh Krupinski tossed a two-hitter as Central Hardin topped the Elizabethtown Panthers, 5-1 on Wednesday night at James R. Aldridge Field.

  • 11TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    When she stepped to the plate for the fourth time Tuesday afternoon, Ashley Nikolao figured she’d be walked again.

    Having reached base all three times against the Hancock County Lady Hornets, the sophomore shortstop wouldn’t have been surprised to be given another free pass.

    Instead, Hancock County junior Mariah Hays tried to jam Nikolao with a high-and-tight fastball on a 3-2 count. Big mistake.
