  • GIRLS' ALL-AREA TRACK...

    Dehydrated and exhausted, Tamara Jenkins almost didn’t make the check-in for her final event at the Class 3-A state track meet in May.

    Having helped the North Hardin Lady Trojans win the 400-meter relay and picking up two other medals earlier, Jenkins had only minutes to recuperate and get ready for the 200 dash.

    Jenkins mustered enough strength to finish second in the 200, giving her four medals – an area feat matched on the girls’ side by Fort Knox senior Kiara Austin.

  • BOYS' ALL-AREA TRACK &...

    Years from now, when Central Hardin’s Antoine Keys looks back on his senior season, a lot of great memories should come to mind.

    From winning a region title twice – after winning the 100-meter dash at the Class 3-A, Region 2 meet, he won it again when the race was contested a second time – to capping off his career with four medals at the state meet in May, Keys had a remarkable season.

  • STATE FARM E'TOWN OPEN:...

    The State Farm E’town Open is considered the crown jewel of the eight-event Central Kentucky Tennis Series because of its immense size, but as of now, that gem isn’t as big as it usually is.

    After the women crowned their state amateur champion Friday at Elizabethtown Country Club and the men did the same June 21 in Simpsonville, this week is the kids’ turn in the spotlight with the Kentucky Junior Amateur Championship at three nearby courses.

  • WOMEN'S STATE AM GOLF...

    Golfers usually play with a certain confidence. Some might even see it as cockiness. Look at Tiger Woods when he was at his best. It’s that type of attitude that allows them to be great.

    Karisa Akin is no different.

    Akin has always played with a certain flair. Playing with that edge has made her one of the best golfers to come from this area. She was an outstanding high school player and went onto to enjoy a solid college career.

  • WOMEN'S STATE AM GOLF:...

    Karisa Akin has aspirations of becoming a college golf coach, but the former Central Hardin High School and Middle Tennessee State University star might not want to give up on her playing career just yet.

    Capping off her long and hot week of solid play, Akin drained a 3-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to edge longtime and friendly rival April Emerson, 1-up to win the 86th Women’s Kentucky State Amateur Golf Championship on Friday afternoon at the par-72, 5,603-yard Elizabethtown Country Club.
