  • PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: No. 16...

    BOWLING GREEN — The 16th-ranked Meade County Lady Waves went 3-1 over the weekend in the Greenwood Border Battle.

    The Lady Waves (14-4) beat Portland, Tenn., 10-0 and lost to Hopkins County Central, 1-0 on Saturday. They beat No. 21 Calloway County, 4-1 and Muhlenberg County, 6-0 on Friday.

    n Hopkins County Central knocked off Meade County on the international tiebreaker. Time ran out on the Lady Waves in the bottom of the seventh.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: Lady...

    After what some track and field enthusiasts would think was a slow start, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers are starting to wake up.

    The Lady Panthers, ranked third behind Fort Thomas Highlands and Louisville Central in Class 2-A by KYTrackXC.com, won the Central Hardin Invitational championship in convincing fashion Thursday night.

    Elizabethtown won seven individual events en route to 145 points, 33 more than runner-up Bardstown and 77 ahead of third-place Central Hardin.

  • PREP TENNIS: Sallee,...

    It was a Sallee-abration.

    Top-seeded Elizabethtown senior Jenna Sallee capped her high school career with her fifth straight Lincoln Heritage Conference Tennis Tournament girls’ singles crown.

    Maybe organizers should consider naming their event after her since she’s dominated it so much the past half decade.

    Sallee defeated No. 2 seeded junior teammate AnnLauren Fiepke, 6-3, 6-2 in Friday’s final at the University Drive Park Tennis Courts.

  • PREP TENNIS: Elizabethtown...

    It’s almost an all-Elizabethtown conference tennis tournament final.

    Almost.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Harrington fans...

    North Hardin senior pitcher Tyler Hinds left a pitch up in the zone and Central Hardin senior catcher Russ Morse made him pay for it, turning on the ball and staking the Bruins to a two-run lead with a homer to left field Thursday at James R. Aldridge Field.

    That was more than enough for Central Hardin sophomore Drew Harrington.

    The southpaw struck out 10 to lead the 10th-ranked Bruins to an 8-1 win in a 17th District game. Harrington limited the Trojans (8-8 overall, 1-4 in district) to three hits, one run and one walk in six innings.

  • PREP BASEBALL/SOFTBALL ROUNDUP:...

    Junior Wesley Kessinger took a no-hit bid into the seventh and the visiting LaRue County Hawks scored five runs in the seventh to pull away from 18th District rival Hart County for a 7-0 win Thursday night.

    Kessinger (3-1) struck out eight and allowed two hits – both singles – and three walks in the complete-game effort.

    “He had a good performance. He threw really well,” said LaRue County coach Chris Price. “He was hitting his spots and kept the ball down. He’s throwing the ball with a lot of confidence right now.”

  • PREP BASEBALL: E'town,...

    The all-too-familiar ping sound at the ball park will be replaced by the old-fashioned crack of a wood bat this weekend at Elizabethtown and Central Hardin.

    The annual Wooden Bat Classic will be held at the two sites. This is the 11th consecutive year for Elizabethtown and the 10th for Central Hardin. Elizabethtown coach Don Pitts said it’s been successful and the players really enjoy it.

  • PREP BASEBALL: John Hardin tops...

    John Hardin’s nickname – Bulldogs – could also be used to describe its mentality at the plate Thursday evening. The same bulldog mentality could be used to portray senior pitcher Cody Creamer.

    The Bulldogs were aggressive and relentless on offense, scoring at least one run in each of the first five innings en route to a 7-4 victory over the Elizabethtown Panthers in a crucial 17th District game at John Hardin High School.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Hughes, Central...

    Ashley Hughes is on such a hot streak that it appears the only person capable of getting Central Hardin’s senior second baseman out is … herself.

    Hughes scored twice, hit two singles and knocked a deep three-run triple Thursday as the No. 14 Lady Bruins rolled to a 10-0 17th District win in five innings against the visiting John Hardin Lady Bulldogs.

    Trailing 3-0 with two on and two outs in the third, John Hardin (8-9 overall, 1-4 district) intentionally walked senior leadoff hitter Kristina Krupinski.

  • PREP BASEBALL OPINION: Central...

    The 17th District baseball race has reached the midway point. Every team has played four games, so where do they stand?

    The Central Hardin Bruins were considered the cream of the crop going into the season and they certainly remain the favorite. The Bruins are 4-0 despite not having the services of reigning Area Pitcher of the Year Dylan Shoffner, a senior who has tossed only three innings.
