  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The LaRue County Hawks removed a monkey from their back Monday afternoon, and now it resides with the Elizabethtown Panthers.

    The Hawks knocked off the host Panthers, 3-1 for their first win in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament since 2008. They had lost their last three consecutive quarterfinal games.

    LaRue County (28-9) jumped out to an early lead, which was important after past region failures.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Runs could be at a premium this year in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament with the new Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution-certified bats (BBCOR), giving pitchers the edge. No where will that be truer than the quarterfinals when each team can put their ace on the mound.

    But like always, it’s not the team that has the best pitcher, but the team that has the deepest staff which will likely emerge holding the championship trophy Wednesday night.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The Central Hardin Bruins don’t have the most 5th Region championships or tournament appearances, but what the Bruins do have is the top program in the region these days.

    In a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately world, the Bruins have accomplished the most the last several years and they have the most going for them. Coaching, talent and desire to stay on top have the Bruins atop the baseball world in the region and they are in a position to stay at the top for several seasons.

  • REGION TOURNAMENTS: Dream come...

    Central Hardin assistant baseball coach Demond Thomas has experienced more than his share of memorable moments with the Bruin baseball program. The Bruins have won four 17th District championships, three 5th Region titles and last year’s state crown. But success has come at a price.

  • REGION TOURNAMENTS: Players want...

    Central Hardin sophomores Josh Krupinski and Dillon Goodman have watched their fathers win a 5th Region championship with the Lady Bruin softball program, but now they want to win one of their own.

    Josh and Dillon are members of the baseball team, which opens region tournament play against Green County at 4 p.m. today at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field. Meanwhile, their fathers – Jamie Goodman and Jody Krupinski – will be coaching the softball team, which plays Nelson County at 2 p.m. today at Marion County High School.

  • REGION TOURNAMENTS: Taylors find...

    The Memorial Day holiday weekend is a good chance for families to get together. But for the Taylors, they realize they will be divided today.

    Brice Taylor is the starting second baseman for the Elizabethtown Panthers, while his sister, Brianna, starts at the same position for the Elizabethtown softball team. Both teams will be in the 5th Region Tournament with baseball being held at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field and softball at Marion County High School.

  • 3RD REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The Meade County Lady Waves avoided a certain powerhouse team from Owensboro during Saturday’s 3rd Region Softball Tournament draw meeting at tournament host Daviess County.

    However, longtime Meade County coach Mike Harreld is unsure getting stuck with Option B is such a great thing.

    The Lady Waves (22-15), the 11th District Tournament champions, meet the 9th District runner-up Apollo Lady Eagles (19-17) in the second of Monday’s four quarterfinals at 1 p.m. Meade County earned a 5-3 win over the visiting Lady Eagles on April 17.

  • 3RD REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT...

    Meade County baseball coach Todd Clanton came out of Saturday’s 3rd Region Tournament draw meeting at host Owensboro Apollo confident. Although he might have wanted to replace that ‘c’ with a ‘k’.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The Elizabethtown Panthers and LaRue County Hawks are no strangers to one another, especially when it comes to the postseason.

    The 18th District champion Hawks (27-9) swept the regular-season series with Elizabethtown, but the Panthers (14-22) have a shot at revenge as the teams will meet at 11 a.m. in Monday’s first quarterfinal of the 5th Region Baseball Tournament.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    LEBANONMatt Mardis’ inaugural trip to a 5th Region Softball Tournament draw meeting was fairly ho-hum Saturday morning at Marion County, site of this week’s eight-team single-elimination tournament.

    And as it turned out, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ third-year coach had the best touch – none.
