  • In gathering of legends, Ron...

    With Kentucky basketball royalty in attendance, a local coach took center stage just a few thousand yards from the gym where he first learned to dribble.

    As a prelude to the Legends of Kentucky Basketball benefit golf scramble, Charlie and Claudia Thurman hosted a shrimp boil Thursday night for a couple dozen roundball notables, including North Hardin head coach Ron Bevars.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: North...

    Long considered the state meet before the state meet, this year is no exception for the North Hardin Invitational.

    And it’s back on its normal weekend on the schedule – the second Saturday in May.

    In all, at least 20 schools will be represented Saturday at the Jeter-McKinney Track Complex in Radcliff. All seven area schools – Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, Fort Knox, John Hardin, LaRue County, Meade County and North Hardin – will be competing starting at 9:30 Saturday morning.

  • PREP ROUNDUP: Coty almost hits...

    Senior Isaac Coty was a homer shy of the cycle and drove in three runs to lead the visiting North Hardin Trojans to a 12-5 win over Bardstown Bethlehem on Thursday.

    Eighth-grader Markus Bell singled, doubled and drove in a run, while junior Andrew Boyles had an RBI double for the Trojans (14-13-1).

    Sophomore Eli Carman (2-2) struck out five in six innings. He allowed seven hits, three walks and three runs – two earned.

  • PREP TENNIS: Elizabethtown tries...

    This year’s KHSAA State Tennis Tournament will have one bonus feature.

    So will the rest of them for years to come.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central knocks...

    Mother Nature couldn’t have intervened at a better time for the Central Hardin Bruins on Thursday evening.

    The LaRue County Hawks tied the score at 3-3 in the top of the sixth, but before the bottom half of the inning could start, the umpires stopped the game because of lightning. The game was delayed more than 90 minutes.

    When the game resumed, the sixth-ranked Bruins broke the game open with a five-run sixth inning to knock off LaRue County, 8-4 in a matchup of two of the top teams in the 5th Region.

    Eighth-grader Kelsey McGuffin homered in the third inning Wednesday before sophomore Baylee Sullivan and senior Kristina Krupinski hit back-to-back homers in the fifth as the 12th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins held off homestanding Glasgow, 7-6.

    Senior Ashley Hughes went 2-for-5 with one stolen base and one run scored, while Krupinski and McGuffin also singled.

  • PREP BASEBALL: E'town...

    Coming off a one-hit shutout loss to 10th-ranked Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park two days earlier, Elizabethtown coach Don Pitts was worried how his team would respond Wednesday evening against 17th District rival North Hardin.

    Just fine, thank you very much.

    The Panthers pounded out 17 hits, including four for extra bases, en route to a 15-3 win in five innings at Panther Baseball Park.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: Holloway...

    After missing a month because of an injury, Halie Holloway is finally starting to hit her stride again.

    A groin injury suffered at the Heart of the Bluegrass on April 16 nearly derailed Holloway’s season. But the John Hardin senior has returned to the track with a vengeance and with the goal of defending her Class 3-A state championship in the triple jump.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central cruises...

    After a disappointing loss Tuesday night, the Central Hardin Bruins didn’t let it bother them for long.

    Playing less than 24 hours after a 9-7 loss to 10th-ranked Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park, when Central Hardin let a two-run lead in the final inning slip away, the fourth-ranked Bruins jumped out front early and never looked back on their way to a six-inning 14-3 pounding of the homestanding John Hardin Bulldogs in a 17th District game Wednesday evening.
