    The dirt track Bluegrass Speedway in Bardstown will begin its 17th season with a 17-event schedule starting April 9 with an open test-and-tune practice night.

    Racing action will take the green flag one week later April 16 with a complete program of competition featuring Super Late Models, UMP Modifieds, UMP Sportsman and UMP Street Stocks.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central Hardin...

    The Central Hardin High School baseball team is coming off its best season and begins this year with its best ranking in the program’s history.

  • LOCAL NOTES: Adcock continues to...

    Nathan Adcock’s already solid spring continued Tuesday when he made his first start for the Kansas City Royals.

    In Surprise, Ariz., Adcock pitched three innings of shutout ball – extending his scoreless inning streak to eight – as the Royals beat an Oakland Athletics split squad, 4-3.

    The former North Hardin standout allowed just three hits and threw 26 of his 37 pitches for strikes.

  • LOCAL NOTES: John Hardin coach...

    After being named the Boys’ Region Coach of the Year by the 5th Region coaches’ association, third-year John Hardin coach Mark Wells has earned the same honor from the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches. Wells led the Bulldogs to a 22-4 record, the longest unbeaten start in the state and the 17th District regular-season title.

  • LOCAL NOTES: Freeman Lake to...

    Wake is returning to the lake.

    After the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour declined to come back to Elizabethtown’s Freeman Lake for a third consecutive summer, it didn’t take Janna Clark and the Elizabethtown Tourism and Convention Bureau long to land another major watersports event.

    The Lexington-based Bluegrass State Games have added wakeboard and waterski to its roster of more than 30 sports for amateurs and the BGSG will contest its wakeboard and waterski events July 9-10 at Freeman Lake.

  • LOCAL NOTES: Benock named SEC...

    Make no mistake, Riley Benock knows why he is a student-athlete.

    A Mississippi State senior guard and a former Meade County High School standout, Benock is just the second player in school history to be named the Southeastern Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION TOURNAMENT...

    GREENSBURG Elizabethtown couldn’t finish off its surprising postseason run.

    The Panthers got into another crazy tangle with Bardstown, and once again, the Tigers came out on top. In the first meeting, Elizabethtown had a 20-point lead. In Tuesday’s Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament championship, the Panthers faced a 20-point deficit. But both times, they ended up on the wrong end.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION TOURNAMENT...

    GREENSBURG The Elizabethtown Panthers have made a habit of starting slow this season, but they’ve learned it’s more important how a team finishes.

    And the Panthers have been closing out games lately.

    After trailing by as many as three in the first quarter, Elizabethtown used a strong second quarter to pull out to a 10-point lead en route to a 59-44 victory over the Bardstown Bethlehem Eagles in the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament semifinals Monday at Green County High School.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    GREENSBURG Artie Braden has led Bardstown Bethlehem to one surprising 5th Region Boys’ Basketball Tournament win, but the ole ball coach isn’t sure he can do it again when his Eagles (11-13) take on the Elizabethtown Panthers (15-12) in tonight’s late semifinal at 8 at Green County High School.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    LEBANON After his team notched a regular-season win at Marion County, Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd was pretty upfront about his thoughts.

    “It’s nice, but it’s not the one that matters,” Mudd said after that game.

    When he woke up this morning following his Lady Panthers’ 53-52 loss to host Marion County in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament final Saturday night, it’s a good bet Mudd felt the same way as he did then.
