  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Kristina Covington realized where she wanted to spend her coaching career when she became a girls’ assistant at Central Hardin last year. Central Hardin’s administration made Covington’s dream come to fruition Wednesday.

    Central Hardin hired Covington as its girls’ basketball coach Tuesday and it became official when the school’s site-based council approved the hiring Wednesday. Demond Thomas resigned following this season after one year on the job.

  • PREP SOFTBALL/PREP BASEBALL...

    Sophomore Jessica Nall hit and pitched the 13th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins past the No. 24 Glasgow Lady Scotties on Tuesday night.

    Nall doubled and singled at the plate and struck out a career-high 17 while allowing just four hits as Central Hardin cruised to a 7-0 win.

    Senior Abbi Goedde singled, doubled, stole a base, drove in a run and scored twice for the Lady Bruins (23-8), who have won six straight. Junior Jordan Lasley had two hits, one RBI and scored once, while sophomore Jessica Pence singled and scored.

    Central Hardin junior Drew Harrington knew what was at stake Tuesday night when his coach – Todd Thompson – paid a visit to the mound in the top of the seventh inning. Harrington begged Thompson to stay in the game and finish what he had started.

    Thompson obliged and Harrington rewarded his coach for having faith in him.

    Harrington tossed a no-hitter, getting through a shaky final inning to help the 11th-ranked Bruins to a 5-1 victory over the visiting Meade County Green Wave.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: E'town...

    When his players are confident at the plate, Elizabethtown coach Matt Mardis can just sit back and watch his team work.

    Despite facing a three-run deficit in the top of the seventh inning Tuesday at 17th District rival John Hardin, Mardis remained hopeful the Lady Panthers would come through because they had the heart of their order coming to bat against John Hardin junior Katlyn Geer.

    They did.
