  • PREP SOFTBALL: Lady Eagles...

    After back-to-back disappointing seasons, the Fort Knox Lady Eagles could be flying a little higher this season.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Knox takes step...

    After recording one of its most successful seasons in a decade, Fort Knox’s baseball program is back in the hole again.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Meade County...

    Meade County lost its top offensive weapon. But Mike Harreld thinks the Lady Waves still have enough firepower to bring home another 11th District Tournament title and contend for a 3rd Region Tournament championship.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: E'town could...

    Matt Mardis fully understood that the combination of a first-year coach (himself), a new pitcher (sophomore Sidney Herzog) and a rather inexperienced supporting cast was going to lead to a long learning year as he took over the Elizabethtown softball program.

    “Last year we struggled on the mound but we were inexperienced all the way around,” said Mardis, who went 5-25 last year.

    Unlike last year, the Lady Panthers don’t lack pitching experience this season.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: North gets a shot...

    After many years of having plenty of older players at his beck and call, veteran North Hardin softball coach Donnie Baker is kind of enjoying the Trojans’ quite evident youthful enthusiasm this season.

    “When you graduate that many seniors in a row, eight last year and eight the previous year, you’re going to be young,” Baker said. “And oh, my god, is this my youngest team. By far. By so far.”

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Yates wants Lady...

    John Hardin has had no problems getting its seasons off to good starts recently. It’s finishing that has second-year Lady Bulldogs coach Corey Yates concerned.

    In the past three years, the Lady Bulldogs have won more than half their games played through April 12. After the season is a couple of weeks old, however, John Hardin has lost steam. In its 60 games played after April 12 the last three years, John Hardin has won just 33.3 percent of those contests.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central could be...

    Coach Mark Martin feels Central Hardin can once again contend for the 5th Region Tournament title. He’d feel a lot better if his Lady Bruins were feeling a lot better physically.

    Martin, who has also coached baseball and football, said he has never had the physical setbacks he’s currently dealing with. The Lady Bruins should have returned eight starters from last year’s team which went 24-13, won the 17th District Tournament and fell to Nelson County in the region semifinals.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Howell wants...

    In his first year as a high school head coach, LaRue County’s Aaron Howell plans on starting a new streak and helping the Lady Hawks return to the state tournamen.

    A six-year absence is too long. Time to make them fly.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: With nucleus back...

    In her second year as coach of the North Hardin Christian Lady Falcons, Shaney Seawright hopes to see marked improvement out of her team this season.

    The Lady Falcons finished 4-5 last season and advanced to the semifinals of the KCAA State Tournament, where they lost to Lexington Blue Grass Baptist. With the nucleus of that team back, Seawright expects the Lady Falcons to go even further.
