  • PREP BASEBALL: Bruins no-hit...

    Josh Krupinski kept hitting his spots Friday night. Troy Squires kept getting hit physically, but not statistically.

    Together, the Central Hardin pitching duo was outstanding, combining for 16 strikeouts as they no-hit the visiting Meade County Green Wave, 1-0 in a matchup of two state tournament teams from a year ago.

    Krupinski, a junior, recorded a career-high 13 strikeouts in six innings before giving way to Squires.

  • PREP SPORTS: First Elizabethtown...

    Elizabethtown High School finalized its athletic hall of fame class Wednesday and announced the first 15 inductees Thursday.

    The inductees were selected from nominations submitted to the EHS hall of fame committee.

    The induction ceremony and banquet is slated for 5:30 p.m. April 20 at Elizabethtown Country Club.

    Eleven of the inductees were chosen for their athletic achievements, two were EHS athletes who later coached at the school, one was an athlete who later contributed in non-coaching ways and another was inducted for his coaching prowess.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Meade County...

    Longtime Meade County softball coach Mike Harreld said Ashley Nikolao is playing too tight in the field, but fortunately for him, his standout junior shortstop is swinging the bat pretty loose.

    And so is her team.

    Overcoming a rare error, Nikolao went 3-for-3 with three of her team’s six extra-base hits as the 23rd-ranked Lady Waves stayed hot at the plate in an 8-3 win Thursday over the visiting North Hardin Trojans.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Pitching leads...

    It may sound like a cliché, but in order for a team to have success, it begins with pitching.

    The Elizabethtown Panthers got another solid outing from senior Cannon Pender and sophomore Austin Freyberger closed out a 4-1 victory over the North Hardin Trojans in the 17th District opener for both Thursday at James R. Aldridge Field.

  • PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: John...

    Visiting John Hardin jumped out to a 1-0 lead over 5th Region rival Taylor County on Wednesday, but the Lady Cardinals scored three runs on three errors in the bottom of the first en route to a 6-1 win.

    The Lady Bulldogs (1-4) took the lead on an RBI single by junior Kaitlyn Embry, but their defense couldn’t hold it.

    Senior Katlyn Geer (1-4) gave up nine hits, six runs and two walks. She struck out four.

  • PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Mercy...

    The third-ranked Louisville Mercy Jaguars aren’t an area team, but they claimed the unofficial area championship with a 3-0 showing against area teams Friday and Saturday in the 16-team TSOA Tournament at Meade-Olin Park in Brandenburg.

    Mercy earned a 3-2 win over Meade County in Saturday evening’s semifinals after beating No. 19 Central Hardin in Saturday afternoon’s quarterfinals, 5-3. In pool play, Mercy no-hit LaRue County in five innings, 12-0 as the Lady Hawks committed five errors. Mercy didn’t play North Hardin.
