  • GIRLS' PREP TRACK: Gray...

    James Webb wasn’t surprised. Neither was John Russell.

    Not much surprises the North Hardin coaches anymore when it comes to Kianna Gray.

    The star junior was named the Gatorade Kentucky Girls’ Track & Field Athlete of the Year on Thursday for the second straight season.

    “I was not surprised because I don’t think anyone outperformed her at State,” Webb said of his reaction after finding out Gray had won.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: Smith named...

    Cam Smith doesn’t remember his dad, Kenny, ever telling him he was nominated for the Sonny Chaput Award.

    So when the 12-year-old’s name was called Thursday night before his Rangers took on the Tigers in Game 2 of the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission World Series on Sonny Chaput Field at University Drive Park, his surprise was understandable.

    Smith took home the 40th annual honor, which rewards a player’s attitude and effort more than performance and has been handed out yearly since 1975.

  • COLLEGE BASEBALL: Thomas named...

    LEXINGTON – Former Elizabethtown and University of Kentucky star catcher Micheal Thomas was named Wednesday to the Southeastern Conference’s community service team by the league office.

    A redshirt senior and two-year starter, Thomas was honored for his work in the Lexington community in the last five years. Thomas completed his Kentucky career in 2014 and led the Wildcats to the NCAA Tournament’s Louisville Regional final. After the season, he was taken in in the 22nd round by the Detroit Tigers in the MLB draft.

  • GOLF NOTEBOOK: Hinton climbs...

    Clay Hinton continued to climb the leaderboard during Wednesday’s second round of the Clark’s Pump-N-Shop Marathon Kentucky State Amateur.

    A day after a 1-under 71, the Elizabethtown resident picked up his play in the second round, carding six birdies on his way to a 4-under 68 at the par-72, 6,842-yard Cherry Blossom Golf & Country Club in Georgetown.

    Hinton, who started on No. 1, is in a three-way tie for eighth with the Paducah tandem of Chris Griffin and Matthew Zakutney.

  • GOLF ROUNDUP: Hinton in...

    One area player is in contention after the first round of the Clark’s Pump-N-Shop Marathon Kentucky State Amateur.

    Elizabethtown’s Clay Hinton fired a 1-under 71 Tuesday and is four shots back of co-leaders Tom Campbell of Danville and Denver Haddix Jr. of Lexington at the par-72, 6,842-yard Cherry Blossom Golf & Country Club in Georgetown.

    Hinton, who started on No. 10, is in a 13-way tie for 12th and was the only local under par.

  • PREP BASEBALL: John Hardin coach...

    After spending more than two and half decades coaching the game of baseball, Greg Gumm has decided to take a break from the sport.

    Gumm resigned last week as John Hardin’s baseball coach after spending four years with the program, including the last three as the head coach. He compiled a 52-59 record in three years, including going 21-16 this season.

  • NOTEBOOK: Area flavor in Men...

    While it is being held at Cherry Blossom Golf & Country Club in Georgetown, the Clark’s Pump-n-Shop Marathon Kentucky State Amateur will have a strong local flavor.

    Especially in the 2:24 p.m. threesome teeing off on the 10th hole today.

    In that trio are former Elizabethtown star Mike Brumfield, former John Hardin and University of Louisville standout Karsten Clements and former Elizabethtown star Clay Hinton. Karsten’s younger brother, Jimmy Kev, is behind them in the 2:33 p.m. threesome on the 10th hole.

  • MEN'S GOLF: Hicks opens...

    Dustin Hicks picked up right where he left off.

    After winning last year’s Men’s Invita-tional at Elizabethtown Country Club, the former Central Hardin star carries a three-stroke lead into the final 18 holes today.

  • PRO FOOTBALL: Former Panther...

    There isn’t much of an offseason for an NFL player. Not with strength and conditioning activities, on-field workouts, organized team activities (OTAs) and mini-camps.

    But defensive lineman Brandon Deaderick always makes time to return to his roots to give back to the community he grew up in and starred in before making football’s highest level with a free clinic for those aspiring to do what Deaderick has done.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: Indiana all-...

    The Kentucky senior all-stars had a tough weekend against their Indiana counterparts as the boys’ and girls’ teams combined to lose all four games. The Kentucky girls, who included LaRue County’s Ivy Brown, were swept for the first time since 2009. The Kentucky boys, who featured John Hardin’s Keon Williams, lost for the 13th straight time to Indiana.
