  • PREP SOFTBALL: Green County,...

    Not too surprisingly, the team that ended last season on top of the 5th Region softball mountain for the first time starts the season back on top.

    The Green County Lady Dragons, who went 37-6 in 2010 and were one of the final six teams remaining in the state tournament, are ranked No. 1 in the first 5th Region softball coaches’ poll conducted by The News-Enterprise.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central tops...

    There’s no debating who the top baseball team in the 5th Region this season.

    In The News-Enterprise’s poll of coaches, every coach – 10 of the 17 voted and two more responded – listed the Central Hardin Bruins as the region favorite. The Bruins topped Elizabethtown in last year’s region championship.

    “They have everybody back,” LaRue County coach Chris Price said. “That’s a lot of experience. There’s a lot of other good teams in the region, but they are expected to win the region again.”

    The Louisville Cardinals and Western Kentucky Hilltoppers will be dipping, ducking, diving and dodging during the annual “Clash of the Commonwealth” sanctioned college dodgeball game tonight at Elizabethtown’s Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium.

    WKU, which will host the National College Dodgeball Association’s national tournament next month, won last year’s Clash, 9-1. According to the NCDA’s online results page, WKU is 8-4 and Louisville is 0-4.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    Even with some key puzzle pieces missing, the picture is starting to come into focus for the red-hot Central Hardin Lady Bruins.

    With junior third baseman Abbie Goedde and junior center fielder Abby Newton stuck in the dugout due to health issues, the unranked Lady Bruins didn’t miss a beat.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Meade starts fast...

    In its season opener, Meade County’s softball team turned what could’ve been a complete disaster into a rally-ending double play.


    First-year LaRue County coach Aaron Howell is still searching for his win as a head coach after the visiting Grayson County Lady Cougars shut out his Lady Hawks, 6-0 on Thursday.

    The Lady Hawks (0-3) were held to six hits – all singles – and committed four errors.

    Junior pitcher Amelia Miller (0-2) allowed four hits, three earned runs and two walks in 1 2/3 innings. She struck out two.

    Senior twins Lyndsay and Valerie Whitlock each went 2-for-3.

    Elizabethtown senior Logan Hartlage didn’t log any innings on the varsity level last year, but he showed Thursday night he’s a fast learner.

    Hartlage tossed five shutout innings to lead the Panthers to a 4-0 victory over the homestanding LaRue County Hawks, who were playing without four starters.

    “Last year, I didn’t play much at all,” Hartlage said. “I’ve been working with (assistant) coach (Don Mullins) during the offseason and just trying to get better.”
