  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Central Hardin sophomore Josh Krupinski was efficient and effective. The Bruins’ offense didn’t have the same efficiency, but the result was the same nonetheless.

    Krupinski tossed a one-hitter and the Bruins scratched out enough runs to support him as they downed the Campbellsville Eagles, 4-1 in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament’s late semifinal Wednesday night at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field.

    The LaRue County Hawks punched their ticket emphatically to the 5th Region Baseball Tournament championship Wednesday night.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The 5th Region Baseball Tournament had an unscheduled day off Tuesday, but the coaches don’t see it as a big deal.

    While both coaches admit they’d rather not have a break in the tournament, Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson and LaRue County coach Chris Price both said it’s the same for the four remaining teams. It’s not ideal, but there’s nothing to do when Mother Nature calls.

    Bo Wilson isn’t one to shy away from wanting the ball in a big game.

    Wilson struck out 13 and scattered four hits as Meade County knocked off the defending region champion Owensboro Apollo Eagles, 8-3 in the first semifinal at Shifley Park in Owensboro.

    Wilson (9-2) fanned eight hitters in the final three innings.  He allowed two walks and one earned run.

    LEBANON Central Hardin could get base runners in scoring position, but the 13th-ranked Lady Bruins couldn’t do anything with them Tuesday night.

    Once seventh-ranked Green County finally got a runner past first base, Kayla Bale didn’t mess around.

    LEBANON — Give the young Elizabethtown Lady Panthers some credit, because they sure know how to make things interesting.

    After having to rally past one district tournament champion in the 5th Region Softball Tournament quarterfinals Monday, they had to do it again Tuesday night in the tournament’s late semifinal.

    Against the host team, no less.

    Elizabethtown erased an early two-run deficit and had several chances to take the lead before falling in nine innings to the 20th District champion Marion County Lady Knights, 3-2.

    LEBANON There’s an old wives’ tale about a fridge or freezer extending the life of a battery.
