    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.

    LEBANON Led by their middle-school trio, the rookies played like old veterans down the stretch Monday night during the last of the 5th Region Softball Tournament’s four quarterfinals at Marion County’s Talley Field.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    The Adair County Indians are into the 5th Region Baseball Tournament semifinals for the first time in 26 years.

    The Indians (26-13) built a 2-0 lead after two innings and that turned out to be more than enough for senior left-hander Jared Denton, who shut the Bardstown Bethlehem Eagles (17-20) to lead Adair County to a 5-1 victory Monday afternoon at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field.

    Denton struck out nine, while allowing only six hits and one walk.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    When the Central Hardin coaching staff was trying to set up their rotation for the 5th Region Baseball Tournament, senior Derek Westerfield made their choice easy.

    Westerfield lobbied to get the ball and delivered with solid performance, and Central Hardin’s offense gave him plenty of support to help the Bruins to an 8-4 victory over the Green County Dragons on Monday in the region quarterfinals at Elizabethtown’s Ron Myers Field.

  • 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.
