  • PREP TRACK: Lady Trojans claim...

    Brianna Woodson doesn’t mean to sound cocky or anything, but the North Hardin senior has grown to expect the Lady Trojans to just win, baby.

    Woodson and junior teammate Tamara Jenkins qualified for the state meet in all four of their events to lead North Hardin to its fifth straight Class 3-A, Region 2 title Friday night at the Jeter-McKinney Track Complex.

    The Lady Trojans won seven individual titles and one relay as they topped runner-up Bowling Green, 182-126. John Hardin finished fourth with 46 points, while Central Hardin was eighth with 23.

  • PREP TRACK: Despite pressure,...

    Being the coach of the second-ranked team in Class 3-A and hosting the Region 2 meet, veteran North Hardin coach James Webb was under a lot of stress Friday night.

    “Tonight was stressful for a few reasons,” Webb said. “Being the regional manager was very stressful. I wanted everything to run smoothly and everybody happy when the meet was over; that was the major thing. Second, I hoped my athletes performed to their abilities and made it to State as we expected.”

  • PREP BASEBALL/SOFTBALL ROUNDUP:...

    Seventh-grader Abby Whelan struck out two, walked none, hit two batters and held visiting LaRue County to just three hits Thursday as the Meade County Lady Waves rolled to a 6-1 win over the Lady Hawks.

  • PRO BASEBALL: Rosenberg returns...

    Today will be a homecoming for B.J. Rosenberg.

    Rosenberg, a former Meade County High School standout who played at the University of Louisville, is playing for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, who begin a four-game series with the Louisville Bats.

    Lehigh Valley is the Triple-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies. Rosenberg began the season with the Double-A Reading Phillies before getting called up April 25.

  • PREP BASEBALL: E'town to...

    Ron Myers spent his career building Elizabethtown High School into one of the premier programs not only in the 5th Region but the state.

    Now, the program will forever be linked to Myers as Elizabethtown will name the field after the man who meant so much to the program for three decades. The field will be known as Ron Myers Field.

    “It’s extremely a high honor,” Myers said Thursday evening. “I can think of no better honor.”

  • COLLEGE TRACK: Bagley, Edwards...

    After moving to Hardin County prior to their junior years, two former prep track stars took the area – and the state – by storm.

    Courtney Edwards, who transferred to Fort Knox from Germany, and Brandon Bagley, who enrolled at John Hardin after moving from Georgia, developed a friendly but competitive rivalry as they combined to win 12 state championships in two years.

    But it’s their head-to-head races that still have people talking.

  • PREP TRACK: North looking to...

    Seeing as today is her last home meet, North Hardin senior Brianna Woodson wants to go out with another region championship under her belt.

    The Lady Trojans are in position to claim their fifth straight Class 3-A, Region 2 title when the meet begins at 3:30.

    Woodson should help carry the load as she’s seeded first in the 400-meter dash and long jump, second in the triple jump and is on North Hardin’s top-ranked 1,600 relay team.

  • PREP TRACK: E'town...

    With 12 No. 1 seeds for the Class 2-A, Region 2 Meet, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers had some lofty expectations to live up to Thursday night.

    They met them all, and took the drama out of the region meet with a dominating performance.

    Spurred by senior Jessica Gabhart and freshman Darien Huff, Elizabethtown won 12 gold medals to roll to its seventh straight region title at Central Hardin High School’s Bruin Field.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central rallies...

    Sometimes it’s not about how many hits a team gets, but when the hits come that makes the difference.

    After falling behind 2-0, the Central Hardin Bruins collected seven of their eight hits in the final four innings as they rallied to tie the game before exploding for five runs in the seventh to hand the homestanding LaRue County Hawks a 7-2 loss Thursday evening in a matchup of the 5th Region’s top two teams.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD:...

    With 11 No. 1 seeds – plus one gold medal already secured – for tonight’s Class 2-A, Region 2 meet, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers seem like a shoo-in to win their seventh straight title.

    Longtime Elizabethtown coach Dickie Jones, however, doesn’t exactly look at things like that.

    He knows the Lady Panthers will have their work cut out for them at Central Hardin High School’s Bruin Field beginning at 5:30 p.m. Running events start at 6.
