  • PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP Whelan...

    North Hardin senior pitcher Andrea Whelan recorded her second 19-strikeout game of the season, fanning every Bullitt Central batter at least once, to lead the Trojans to a 2-1 win in 10 innings Tuesday against the Lady Cougars (15-16).

    Whelan (13-14) recorded her 300th strikeout of the season in the third inning, when the game was stopped and she was given a game ball. She also went 3-for-5 with a double and a stolen base.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: LaRue County...

    After his team had blown eight leads in the final two innings, first-year LaRue County coach Aaron Howell thought his Lady Hawks could be in line for another late-game setback Tuesday while visiting cousin Corey Yates and his John Hardin Lady Bulldogs.

    Instead, the Lady Hawks finally caught a break in the top of the ninth inning as junior shortstop Megan Smith reached base on a no-out error error and scored two batters later on a groundout by senior right fielder Cassady Crim as they held on for a 6-5 win.

  • PREP BASEBALL: LaRue County...

    LaRue County repeatedly smashed and dashed any of North Hardin’s comeback hopes.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: Trojans...

    Two lengthy streaks couldn’t be stopped Tuesday night.

    The North Hardin Trojans and Lady Trojans easily won both team titles at the Lincoln Trail Heartland Conference meet at LaRue County High School.

    The North Hardin boys won their 14th consecutive conference crown with 178.50 points to outdistance runner-up Bardstown, which finished with 106.50 points, and third-place John Hardin, which had 84.

  • HORSE RACING: Morrows happy with...

    Beth Morrow expected to be crushed if her horse, Mucho Macho Man, fell short of winning the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.

    Two days later, Morrow didn’t have the same feelings she envisioned.

    “There’s not the disappointment like I thought there would be,” Morrow said Monday. “My anticipation was that if we didn’t win, I’d be disappointed. But to come in third in the Kentucky Derby, that’s exhilarating.”

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD:...

    Janaiqua Horne and the North Hardin Lady Trojans are pretty confident heading into the Lincoln Trail Heartland Conference meet.

    They think another conference title is theirs for the taking at LaRue County High School. The Lady Trojans have won at least the last 14 conference meets.

    Even though they’re young and inexperienced, Horne is sure they’ll get No. 15 today. Field events begin at 5:30 p.m., with running events slated for 5:45.

  • PREP BASEBALL/SOFTBALL: John...

    Visiting John Hardin pounded out 17 hits, including six doubles, in a 16-0 five-inning romp over 17th District rival Fort Knox on Monday.

    Senior Paul Pickerrell had three doubles and three RBIs, while senior Garrett Mitchell had two doubles. Senior Cody Creamer went 2-for-4 with three runs scored and two RBIs.

    Sophomore Garrett Ray added a single and two RBIs for John Hardin (12-12 overall, 5-2 district), which won its third straight.

    Junior Sam Brashear (2-4) struck out three in two innings.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    Jordan Lasley returned to the lineup in emphatic fashion Monday, while Central Hardin went back to the win column the same way.

    The Lady Bruins’ sophomore shortstop went 2-for-4 with a bases-clearing double in her first game after a lengthy stay in the hospital as No. 14 Central Hardin cruised past the homestanding Elizabethtown Lady Panthers, 7-0.

    Lasley spent five days in the hospital last week with a previously undiagnosed cortisol deficiency, which caused her to miss her team’s last seven games.
