  • PREP SOFTBALL/BASEBALL ROUNDUP:...

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers snapped out of an offensive funk with a big win over 17th District rival Fort Knox on Tuesday.

    Seventh-grader Erin Boley had two singles, a double and a triple, and junior Sydney Herzog had two doubles and four RBIs as the visiting Lady Panthers rolled past the Lady Eagles, 11-2.

    Elizabethtown (2-6 overall, 1-0 district) had scored just three runs during a four-game skid. But the Lady Panthers had 11 hits against the Lady Eagles (1-2, 0-1), who lost their second straight.

  • MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Adcock...

    Nathan Adcock was in the Kansas City Royals locker room Sunday when manager Ned Yost walked by and called him into the office.

    “When the manager comes and says ‘come with me,’ my heart dropped to my feet,” Adcock said. “My heart dropped 6 feet below my feet.”

    Adcock didn’t know what to expect from the impromptu meeting. Had the Royals worked out a deal to keep the Rule 5 draftee? Was he being sent back to the Pittsburgh Pirates? Was he being sent to the minors, which meant any team could pick him up?

  • PREP BASEBALL: LaRue's...

    The LaRue County Hawks dropped their first two games, but they have turned things around, stringing together three consecutive wins.

    But the euphoria of their winning streak took a hit Tuesday when the Hawks learned junior pitcher/shortstop Jesse Johnson will miss the rest of the season. Johnson heard a pop in his elbow Saturday when he was pitching against Campbellsville.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: North's...

    North Hardin girls’ basketball coach James Slaven has been coaching for as long as he can remember, but Slaven realized during this past season it was time to take a step back.

    Slaven resigned as coach Tuesday, stepping down after four years. He compiled a 73-45 record and guided the Lady Trojans to four consecutive 17th District Tournament runner-up finishes and reached the 5th Region final in 2008. Slaven will remain at North Hardin as a teacher and athletic director.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central cruises...

    It’s been said on more than one occasion hitting is contagious. If that’s the case, the Central Hardin Bruins have a bad case of it.

    All nine Bruins in the lineup had a hit and scored a run in the first inning to help ninth-ranked Central Hardin cruise to a 17-0 mercy-rule victory over the visiting North Hardin Trojans in a 17th District game Tuesday night.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Panthers take...

    Every time Cannon Pender went up to bat, it seemed like he was seeing triple.

    Of his five plate appearances, Elizabethtown’s sophomore left fielder came up with the bases loaded four times.

  • PREP BASEBALL: District schedule...

    The 17th District baseball race begins today with a pair of games, but coaches are quick to point out it’s not the start that counts as much as the finish.

    “I always tell the boys the baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint,” Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson said.

    Central Hardin has heeded Thompson’s words in the past quite well. The Bruins have won the last two district tournament championships and they’ve appeared in four consecutive title games and five of the last six.
