  • BASKETBALL: Vine Grove...

    The Vine Grove High School Blue Devils are still close — even after 60 years.

    In 1952, the basketball team won the 23rd District and 6th Region tournaments, and marked a moment in history as the only team at Vine Grove to advance to the KHSAA Sweet Sixteen.

    But its record success is not the only famous marker of the team. The players, as well as the cheerleaders, foster a singularly close bond.

  • 18TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    With Kasey Estes stepping into the pitcher’s circle in the 18th District Softball Tournament championship game, the LaRue County Lady Hawks were behind the 8-ball Thursday.

    The second-seeded Lady Hawks hadn’t faced top-seeded Green County’s senior ace this season, and it showed.

    Estes threw a no-hitter, pitching around two errors and a walk, to lead the Lady Dragons to a 4-0 win over tournament host LaRue County.

  • 18TH DISTRICT BASEBALL...

    LaRue County still can’t be dethroned from the 18th District Baseball Tournament winner’s circle.

    After winning their 11th straight championship, the Hawks have a little bit of their swagger back.

  • 17TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    Because his son, Dillon, was playing in the 17th District Baseball Tournament final up the road less than 2 hours after his team was scheduled to host the second-seeded Elizabethtown Lady Panthers in the 17th District Softball Tournament’s championship game, Central Hardin Lady Bruins coach Jamie Goodman had little time to waste Wednesday night.

  • 17TH DISTRICT BASEBALL...

    The Central Hardin Bruins are turning the 17th District Baseball Tournament into the Central Hardin Invitational.

    The Bruins took a lead they would never relinquish in the bottom of the first and sophomore Josh Krupinski tossed a two-hitter as Central Hardin topped the Elizabethtown Panthers, 5-1 on Wednesday night at James R. Aldridge Field.

  • 11TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    When she stepped to the plate for the fourth time Tuesday afternoon, Ashley Nikolao figured she’d be walked again.

    Having reached base all three times against the Hancock County Lady Hornets, the sophomore shortstop wouldn’t have been surprised to be given another free pass.

    Instead, Hancock County junior Mariah Hays tried to jam Nikolao with a high-and-tight fastball on a 3-2 count. Big mistake.

  • 11TH DISTRICT BASEBALL...

    In the locker of every Meade County player is a sign that reminds the Green Wave of last year’s stinging defeat to the Hancock County Hornets in the 11th District Baseball Tournament.

    Garrett Ledford didn’t want to experience that feeling again.

    The senior right-hander flirted with a one-hitter Tuesday night as he finished with eight strikeouts as Meade County blanked the Hornets, 8-0 at Meade-Olin Park.

  • 18TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    Two innings from leading second-seeded LaRue County into the 18th District Softball Tournament final, Brigitte Skaggs lost her release point.

  • 17TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    Mary Beth Russell’s left pitching arm hurt so much last week that Elizabethtown coach Matt Mardis practically had to shut down the Lady Panthers’ senior ace.

    Things still looked fairly bleak Monday when Russell didn’t toss any pitches in practice.

  • 17TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    After back-to-back losses to close the regular season, the 13th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins made sure their battery was fully charged as they opened the postseason Tuesday night.
