  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT...

    LEXINGTON – The light rain falling at Whitaker Bank Ballpark wasn’t the only reign to fall Monday afternoon.

    Central Hardin’s championship reign officially came to an end as the Bruins fell to the surging South Warren Spartans, 3-1 in the first round of the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament.

    The Bruins know this feeling and they certainly don’t like it. Two years ago, they lost in the first round to Greenup County only to come back last season and win the state championship.

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    LEXINGTON – The Central Hardin Bruins couldn’t have picked a worse time to have one of their worst games.

    Central Hardin’s quest for back-to-back state championships came to a screeching halt Monday afternoon as the Bruins weren’t as sharp as they’ve been this postseason and it cost them dearly.

    South Warren, a two-year-old school appearing for the first time in the KHSAA State Baseball Tournament, eliminated Central Hardin 3-1 in the opening game Monday.

    The Spartans got their first hit off Central starter Josh Krupinski in the bottom of the fourth inning. Jacob Boose advanced to second on a balk. He scored on an overthrow to second base on a pickoff play by the catcher to give South Warren a 1-0 lead.

    Central Hardin tied the game at 1-1 in the sixth when Troy Squires scored on an error.

    The Meade County Green Wave are heading to the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament for the first time in the program’s history. It’s easy to figure out why after one glance at their pitching staff.

    The Green Wave pitching staff has plenty going for them. Talent. Physical ability. Health. Experience. You name it, Meade County’s Big Three – seniors Bo Wilson and Garrett Ledford and junior Jake Wilson – have it.

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Assembling a baseball team is the same as putting a jigsaw puzzle together. A coach has to work to place the pieces in their right spots. One misplaced piece could be the difference in having a good season and a great season.

    Last season, Central Hardin had all the right pieces. The Bruins had a potent lineup capable of scoring runs – and lots of them. They had a dominant pitching staff led by Austin Walters and Dylan Shoffner. They had a rock-solid defense. And most importantly, they had determination to be the best.

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The Central Hardin Bruins didn’t have much time to prepare for the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament, but they are hoping their experience can make up for that.

    The defending state champion Bruins are making their third consecutive trip to the state tournament after winning the 5th Region Tournament on Saturday. They practiced Sunday and then left for today’s game in Lexington.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Myers selected...

    Ron Myers remains a little overwhelmed.

    A little more than three weeks ago, the former Elizabethtown baseball coach had the Panthers’ field named in his honor.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Central Hardin senior Derek Westerfield missed a golden opportunity to stake the Bruins to a lead in the third inning.

    Given a second chance in the seventh, Westerfield took full advantage of it.

    Westerfield launched a two-run home run in the top of the seventh inning to lift the Bruins to a 4-2 victory over the LaRue County Hawks on Saturday in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament championship at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field.

  • WOMEN'S GOLF: Former...

    Karisa Akin was looking forward to playing in her hometown Lady Bug Invitational later this month as a tune-up for the Women’s Kentucky State Golf Amateur Championship, which she won last year.

    Instead, the former Central Hardin High School star will do her State Am preparations hundreds of miles away in a major national event.

    Two days after playing a U.S. Women’s Open qualifier in St. Louis, Akin finished first out of 13 participants Thursday in a U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship at Shoal Creek Golf Club in Kansas City, Mo.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Mother Nature has intervened once again in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament.

    After rains forced the semifinals to be postponed a day Tuesday, heavy storms Thursday forced the championship game between Central Hardin and LaRue County to be called in the second inning. The game will be picked up where it left off at 6:30 p.m. today at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field.
