    This year’s 5th Region Tennis Tournament will lose one special treat.

    The tournament kicks off at 4:30 p.m. May 13, with first-round girls’ singles and doubles matches at Elizabethtown’s University Drive Park Tennis Courts. Boys’ first-round singles and doubles matches are set for 10 a.m. May 14.

  • 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.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Catcher is the...

    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.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Seniors lead...

    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.

  • PREP BASEBALL-SOFTBALL: North...

    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.
