  • PREP SPORTS OPINION: High school...

    It seems like only a couple of weeks ago the 2010-11 high school sports season ended with the Central Hardin baseball team celebrating its first state championship at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.

    But here it is the first week of August and another high school sports season is upon us. The offseason seems to get shorter and shorter as I get older. It doesn’t quite seem fair.

    The high school golf season started Monday with volleyball, soccer, football and cross country to follow.

    The sides couldn’t be more opposite. Here was a young third grader playing in first Girls’ 3rd Region Tournament, tugging her pull cart holding her clubs behind her. Her drives weren’t long, but she compensated with precision irons and pinpoint putting. On the other was the two-time region champion who crushed the ball off the tee and had the short game to go with her long drives.

    The latter was former Meade County star Katie Fraley, who went on to win the region tournament and is the last area player to win four consecutive region championships.
