  • PREP SOFTBALL: Meade County...

    Ashley Nikolao has been a fixture in the Meade County lineup since she was a middle-schooler. Still, the Lady Waves’ star shortstop said she had never seen Mike Harreld yell as much as the veteran Meade County coach did during Wednesday’s practice following his team’s season-opening loss Tuesday to Louisville Eastern.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Four area teams...

    Meade County softball coach Mike Harreld sees this weekend as a trial by fire for his young Lady Waves.

    Sure they get to stay home in the friendly confines of Meade-Olin Park, but that might be the only thing the Lady Waves have in their favor.

  • PREP BASEBALL ROUNDUP: Bulldogs...

    Junior Lavonte Wilson’s RBI infield single in the bottom of the eighth inning lifted the John Hardin Bulldogs to a 5-4 win over Breckinridge County on Thursday.

    Wilson drove in freshman Garrison McMillen, who was pinch-running for junior Brian Panckey – who gave the Bulldogs (3-2) a 4-2 lead in the third with a three-run double. Junior Dale Gumm doubled for John Hardin, while senior Montaque Pittman and sophomore Dakoda Rothermel each had two singles.

  • PREP BASEBALL ROUNDUP: Central...

    Junior right-hander Josh Krupinski and sophomore Luke McCamish combined on a no-hitter as the ninth-ranked Central Hardin Bruins routed Louisville Southern, 12-0 in five innings Wednesday.

    Krupinski (1-0) struck out five and walked two in three innings, while McCamish had one strikeout in two innings.

    The Bruins (2-0) pounded out 14 hits – all singles. Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson said a strong wind blowing in from the outfield led to both teams playing their outfielders closer to the infield.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    The 23rd-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins were wide awake in their season debut at home Tuesday night, putting LaRue County on its heels early.

    After the Lady Hawks put up a spirited rally, the Lady Bruins awoke from their sudden offensive slumber to subdue their 5th Region rival.

    Led by All-Region sophomore shortstop Kelsey McGuffin’s two-run single that gave her team the lead for good, the Lady Bruins’ final four hits came in their three-run fifth inning as Central Hardin topped the Lady Hawks, 8-5.

  • PREP SOFTBALL PREVIEW:...

    The way veteran coach Donnie Baker looks at it, the North Hardin Trojans are a lot like their coach – getting older.

    “All of those little girls are growing up. They’re a year older and a year stronger and a year more experienced,” he said. “They’re growing up, slowly but surely.”

    Sophomore Bailey Blair returns to the pitching circle after making it her full-time home last season. Baker said she developed as the season went on and continued to improve in the offseason.

  • PREP SOFTBALL PREVIEW: John...

    Even though Deron Bell is in his first season as the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs’ coach, he still feels the pressure is on his youthful squad.

    “I think the girls are more nervous than I am,” Bell said.

    Bell hopes to bring some stability to a program which had two coaches last season. Corey Yates started the season as coach. After Yates resigned, assistant Brittany Glascock was promoted to interim coach.
