  • PREP BASEBALL: Who calls the...

    The art of catchers calling their own game at the high school level has become a rarity. Instead, most high schools have gone to the wristband approach. The catcher, who is wearing a wristband, receives the sign from the bench, consults the band, and then relays the sign to the pitcher.

    Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, LaRue County and Meade County all use a similar approach, mainly working off a wristband to signal in pitches. North Hardin coaches signal in pitches as well. John Hardin is the only school which doesn’t have a coach signal in pitches.

    Catcher is the grunt position on a baseball field, the spot that yields black and blue and achy knees. This spring, however, it is glamorous because of the area’s abundance of talent behind the plate.

    A long layoff hasn’t seemed to put much rust on the Central Hardin Lady Bruins’ three elder stateswomen.

    Kristina Krupinski was a strike from a no-hitter, Ashley Hughes had hits in every at-bat and Jordan Daniel added two to her district-leading RBI total Wednesday as the senior trio led their team to a regular-season sweep of the visiting North Hardin Trojans, 4-0.

    More rain moved into the area late Monday and into Tuesday, forcing the cancellation of several prep baseball and softball games.

    In baseball, two 17th District games were pushed back. North Hardin was scheduled to play at John Hardin on Tuesday, but that game was moved to 5:30 p.m. today. John Hardin coach Adam Lindsey said the game could get moved again if the Bulldogs’ field isn’t playable. Central Hardin and Fort Knox were supposed to meet at 5:30 Tuesday, but that game has been moved to 5:30 Friday.

    Olivia Greenwell is giving up cleats, curveballs and corner kicks for Calvin Klein and forgetting about fielding ground balls to focus on Gucci.

    For the John Hardin High School senior, the next month is the last of her athletic career. While many of her fellow graduates will prepare for their freshman year of college later this summer, Greenwell is taking the path less traveled – to one of the most heavily traveled places in the country.

    Greenwell is an early acceptant to New York’s fashion-focused LIM College in midtown Manhattan.

    Jessica Gabhart is no longer ranked No. 1 in the 300-meter hurdles in Class 2-A.

    West Jessamine sophomore Abby Wiggins won the 300 hurdles in 46.90 seconds Friday at the Boyle County Invitational, taking the top spot from Gabhart – whose season-best time is 48.13 recorded at the Central Hardin Invitational on April 21.

    With the state meet just a few weeks away, the news came as a bit of a “reality check” to the Elizabethtown junior.

    Former Elizabethtown High School golfers Clay, Grant and Garrett Hinton each guided their college teams to top-two tournament finishes.
    Even more impressively, one of them helped his team record a fifth straight conference title, advance to the NCAA Division III championship meet and earn himself Freshman of the Year honors, while another will be competing in the NCAA-Division II championship meet.
