  • BOYS' PREP TENNIS PREVIEW:...

    The Central Hardin Bruins are no longer in hibernation.

    With 5-of-6 players back from a team which finished third in last year’s 5th Region Tennis Tournament, the Bruins appear to be the boys’ top area team.

    Senior Tad Skaggs returns at No. 1 singles, while junior Kevin Britt is back at No. 2 singles. Skaggs advanced to the region semifinals last year, while Britt was a quarterfinalist.

  • PREP BASEBALL/SOFTBALL ROUNDUP:...

    Sophomore Lance Baker won for the third time this season as the homestanding North Hardin Trojans held off Oldham County, 5-4 on Saturday.

    Baker (3-0) allowed eight hits, four runs and two walks in four innings before junior Sy Ogden shut the Colonels down by striking out four in three innings to preserve the win. Baker struck out three.

    Senior Jamaal Wilson and sophomore Javier Echevarria each went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run, while senior Jordan Sanchez singled twice and scored twice.

  • GIRLS' PREP TRACK PREVIEW:...

    When it comes to Class 2-A, Region 2, no team has been as dominant as the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.

    They’ve won eight straight region titles and with 10 athletes back, Elizabethtown is in prime position to make it nine in a row this year.

    Elizabethtown has a solid cast to build around. Seniors Anne Elizabeth Mason, Jordyn Patterson, Emily Richardson, Madison Smith and Rebecca Snyder, junior Hannah Godfrey, sophomores Darien Huff, Jordan Nuccitelli and Rachel Warden and freshman Ngozi Akukwe are back for the Lady Panthers.

  • BOYS' PREP TRACK PREVIEW:...

    The disappointment of last season still lingers around longtime North Hardin boys’ track coach James Webb.

    Webb and the Trojans hoped to contend for the Class 3-A title last season at the University of Louisville, only to fade to fifth behind Lexington Bryan Station and Louisville squads Male, Trinity and Eastern. Webb hasn’t let his team forget about it.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Morgan leads...

    Elizabethtown senior Garrett Morgan admits he was missing his spots on the mound, but he didn’t have the same trouble at the plate.

    Morgan kept coming up with runners in scoring position and he delivered three times to spark the Panthers to a 7-3 victory over the homestanding LaRue County Hawks in a matchup of 5th Region rivals Thursday evening.

    “He kept throwing me curveballs,” Morgan said. “I just stayed back on it and did what I was supposed to do.”
