  • PREP BOWLING: High schools...

    Just like in volleyball a few years back, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association is about to be bowled over and struck down by the explosive growth of another sport.

    But unlike volleyball, area schools – and 5th Region schools for that matter – aren’t jumping in headfirst.

  • WOMEN'S WEIGHTLIFTING:...

    Jennie Gray has started to dazzle bodybuilding judges with her figure.

    After only two statewide competitions, the Elizabethtown resident is cleaning up.

  • PREP SPORTS: Games pushed back...

    Mother Nature must not be a fan of spring sports.

    Heavy rain and severe thunderstorms have wreaked havoc on the Bluegrass State, forcing the cancellation and postponement of several baseball and softball games – not to mention track meets and tennis matches – this week.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Weight changes...

    The National Federation of High School Associations has changed the landscape of prep wrestling.

    In its meeting April 4-6 in Indianapolis, the NFHS wrestling rules committee voted on several changes.

    Among them is the first complete weight-class overhaul in 23 years. Beginning with the 2011-12 season, weight classes are 106 pounds, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220 and 285.

    LaRue County coach Gary Canter said the weight classes are similar to what they were when he wrestled in high school in the 1970s.

  • COLLEGE NOTEBOOK: Garrett Hinton...

    Garrett Hinton, an Eastern Kentucky University freshman and former Elizabethtown standout, shot a 1-over 73 during the first round of the Ohio Valley Conference Championship on Monday at GreyStone Golf Club in Dickson, Tenn.

    Following two delays Tuesday, Hinton was in a four-way tie for 25th and was 4 over through 15 holes.

    On Monday night, Hinton was one of five freshmen chosen for the OVC’s All-Newcomer team.

  • OPINION: District baseball race...

    The 17th District baseball race has gotten much more interesting after last week’s games. It would be nice to see what this week’s games would bring, but Mother Nature obviously doesn’t feel the same.

    Central Hardin is the only team in control of its own destiny. The Bruins are 5-0 with road games remaining at John Hardin, Fort Knox and Elizabethtown. A win in two of the three games would guarantee the Bruins the top spot in the district tournament.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: North Hardin...

    Visiting North Hardin battled back from three one-run deficits Monday – including entering the top of the seventh inning – as the Trojans came away with a 6-3 upset of No. 19 Green County in 10 innings.

    Senior Andrea Whelan struck out 13 of the 43 batters she faced, walked four and scattered seven hits. She helped herself by going 3-for-5 with a double, two RBIs, one run scored and one stolen base.

  • PREP BASEBALL/SOFTBALL: Coaches...

    The soggiest April on record has forced several cancelations and postponements in every spring sport.

    According to the Fort Knox Weather Center, Hardin County had been hit by nearly 11 inches of rain – the most since the county saw 6.1 inches in 2008 – as of noon Monday. More rain hit the area later Monday afternoon, with more forecast for today and Wednesday.

  • GOLF: Kentucky Legends of Sports...

    Charlie Thurman wanted to turn next month’s Kentucky Legends of Sports golf tournament into the premier one in the state.

    So, he beefed up the competition and secured even more elite-level talent. There’s a “Sky Walker,” an Olympic gold-medal winner and even an NBA champ.

  • PREP BASEBALL: The Year of the...

    The batter’s box has become a much safer place in the last few years. Area standouts like Nathan Adcock, Sean Bouthilette, Joe Nash, Aaron Mayfield and others have moved on.

    But this season area hitters have become downright comfortable in the batter’s box. Batting averages are soaring and earned run averages are taking the brunt of it.
