    The North Hardin Trojans will field a young squad this season, but youth shouldn’t be confused with inexperience.

    Despite only having possibly one senior in the starting lineup and most days starting six players who are sophomores or younger, it’s not like these Trojans are new to the varsity level. In fact, most of them started last year and some of them are entering their third year in the lineup.

    Since the 2002 season, no Fort Knox team has won 10 games.

    In his second season on post, Roy Taylor would like to change that.

    The Eagles have come close twice – winning eight games in 2008 and 2005 – and Taylor thinks he has the pieces in place to reach the goal this season.

    Things are looking up for the Meade County Green Wave baseball program.

    Meade County closed last season with a flurry, winning six of its last 10 games. In the stretch, the Green Wave beat Central Hardin and LaRue County – two 5th Region Tournament teams – and then won the 11th District Tournament before falling in the first round of the 3rd Region Tournament.

    Searching for the perfect recipe to win the 5th Region Baseball Tournament is not an exact science. There are many factors to consider, but when trying to pick a favorite most coaches start in the 17th District.

    “Year in, year out, you have to consider the 17th District first,” North Hardin coach Greg Gumm said.

    John Hardin coach Adam Lindsey has never felt this way entering a season in his four years with the baseball program.

    Lindsey can’t contain his excitement when he discusses the Bulldogs, who return six starters from last year’s 13-13 squad.

    “These kids have played together for four years and some of these kids have started two or three years,” Lindsey said. “They are a close-knit group, closer than we’ve had since I’ve been here.

    LaRue County doesn’t go through rebuilding years often, but the Hawks could be in for one this season.

    The Hawks, who went 15-15 last season and won their ninth consecutive 18th District title, have plenty of holes, including nearly their entire pitching staff, and they will be relying on a number of underclassmen to fill those positions.

    By GREG CREWS gcrews@thenewsenterprise.com LEXINGTON — Three sets of North Hardin hands went to the air, swiping at Jordan Gilbert’s floater in the lane, but the ball was just beyond their reach — as was the game.

    Karissa Jackson wants her senior year to be just as successful as her freshman and sophomore years were.

    Fort Knox went 18-15 in 2007 and 19-16 in 2008, the team’s best two seasons in the last nine years. Jackson, who’s been with the team since she was a sixth-grader, felt the Lady Eagles took a step backward with a 7-18 campaign last year.

    LEXINGTON — A star was born Thursday evening during the PNC/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen State Basketball Tournament. That star was North Hardin sophomore Jermaine Ruttley, the young Trojan guard who has grown by leaps and bounds this season and was at his best in the final two games of the season. Ruttley’s statistics weren’t gaudy. Ruttley had nine po
