  • PREP TENNIS PREVIEW: Boys'...

    The more things say the same, the more things Karen Henson has decided to change.

    Even though Elizabethtown returned 4-of-6 players, including both singles entries, which rolled to another 5th Region Tournament team championship, the Panthers’ second-year coach has tinkered with the lineup.

    The notable changes send junior Reza Haider back to singles, where he’ll rotate playing No. 1 and No. 2 matches with returning junior singles standout Zeeshan Bhatti, last year’s region tournament runner-up and conference tournament champion.

    Just how dominant has Jenna Sallee been during the Girls’ 5th Region Tennis Tournament?

    Over the past two years, the Elizabethtown senior hasn’t dropped a single set in singles play.

    She’s made reaching the State tournament look way too easy.

  • BASEBALL: Adcock making most of...

    Nathan Adcock has said being picked up by the Kansas City Royals in December’s Rule 5 Draft gives him the best shot at achieving his childhood dream of playing in the major leagues.

    His performance Tuesday against the Oakland Athletics could go a long way in helping him secure a spot in the Royals’ bullpen.

    In his spring training starting debut, Adcock scattered three hits in three innings to help the Royals knock off an A’s split squad, 4-3 in Surprise, Ariz. The outing extended his scoreless innings streak to eight in five appearances.

  • LOCAL NOTES: Adcock continues to...

    Nathan Adcock’s already solid spring continued Tuesday when he made his first start for the Kansas City Royals.

    In Surprise, Ariz., Adcock pitched three innings of shutout ball – extending his scoreless inning streak to eight – as the Royals beat an Oakland Athletics split squad, 4-3.

    The former North Hardin standout allowed just three hits and threw 26 of his 37 pitches for strikes.

  • LOCAL NOTES: John Hardin coach...

    After being named the Boys’ Region Coach of the Year by the 5th Region coaches’ association, third-year John Hardin coach Mark Wells has earned the same honor from the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches. Wells led the Bulldogs to a 22-4 record, the longest unbeaten start in the state and the 17th District regular-season title.

  • LOCAL NOTES: Freeman Lake to...

    Wake is returning to the lake.

    After the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour declined to come back to Elizabethtown’s Freeman Lake for a third consecutive summer, it didn’t take Janna Clark and the Elizabethtown Tourism and Convention Bureau long to land another major watersports event.

    The Lexington-based Bluegrass State Games have added wakeboard and waterski to its roster of more than 30 sports for amateurs and the BGSG will contest its wakeboard and waterski events July 9-10 at Freeman Lake.

  • LOCAL NOTES: Benock named SEC...

    Make no mistake, Riley Benock knows why he is a student-athlete.

    A Mississippi State senior guard and a former Meade County High School standout, Benock is just the second player in school history to be named the Southeastern Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
