  • 17TH DISTRICT BASEBALL...

    North Hardin senior Brady Patterson celebrated his 18th birthday in style Monday evening.

    Patterson was a home run shy of the cycle to spark the fourth-seeded Trojans to a 14-1 mercy-rule rout of the fifth-seeded Fort Knox Eagles in the 17th District Baseball Tournament’s lone quarterfinal at James R. Aldridge Field.

    “I’ve been seeing it well lately,” said Patterson, who went 3-for-4 with three runs and four RBIs. “I hope to keep that momentum going and come out tomorrow with the same type of at-bats.”

  • 11TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Meade...

    Only one area team has already earned a region tournament berth, but veteran coach Mike Harreld isn’t about to let his Meade County Lady Waves rest on their laurels just yet.

    The top-seeded Lady Waves (21-15), who are hosting this week’s 11th District Tournament at Meade-Olin Park in Brandenburg, are already in Tuesday night’s final thanks to their 4-0 combined regular-season record against the second-seeded Hancock County Lady Hornets (16-20) and the third-seeded Breckinridge County Lady Tigers (4-17).

  • 18th DISTRICT BASEBALL: Hawks...

    The LaRue County Hawks are accustomed to being the kings of the 18th District, but they don’t feel like it much these days.

    The district tournament, which is being held at LaRue County, starts night with the two semifinals. LaRue County (25-9) hosts Caverna (1-29) at 5:30, followed by Green County (17-16) taking on Hart County (12-22) at 8. The championship is at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

  • 18TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL: LaRue...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks hope history repeats itself.

    In their first year under the tutelage of coach Aaron Howell, the Lady Hawks had an up-and-down regular season in 2011 before rallying to earn a spot in the 5th Region Tournament final.

    So as the 18th District Tournament opens with both semifinals Tuesday in Hodgenville, second-seeded LaRue County (12-20) would love to be able to conjure up some more postseason magic.

  • 17th DISTRICT BASEBALL: Bruins...

    The Central Hardin Bruins are gaining momentum at the right time of the year. That’s good news for the defending state champions, but not so much for the rest of the 17th District.

    The Bruins had a rough day at the Louisville Invitational Tournament, getting shut out twice on April 27. But they bounced back to win back-to-back district games, scoring 27 combined runs in victories over Elizabethtown and John Hardin.

  • 11th DISTRICT BASEBALL: Meade...

    The Meade County Green Wave have taken the program to heights not often reached, but they have no plans on slowing down now.

    The Green Wave have tied the school record for wins in a single season, according to Coach Todd Clanton. The 1979 team won 20 games and this year’s club matched that number with Saturday’s 17-0 rout of John Hardin.

  • 17TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Central...

    Central Hardin steamrolled its way through 17th District and 5th Region competition last year as the Lady Bruins swept both postseason tournaments before tying for fifth in the state tournament in Owensboro.

    As they host the district tournament this week, the top-seeded Lady Bruins (23-10) look primed to accomplish the feat once again, but with a vastly different look.

  • PREP BASEBALL ROUNDUP: Meade...

    The host Meade County Green Wave erupted for 10 runs in the bottom of the second inning as they cruised to a 17-0 win in five innings Saturday against the John Hardin Bulldogs.

    Jake Wilson and Garrett Ledford each had three hits and scored three runs for the Green Wave (20-9). Wilson had a double and one RBI.

  • PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Meade...

    The Meade County Lady Waves had a busy day Saturday.

    They went 3-2, falling to No. 22 Daviess County, 4-3 in the final of the Monroe Classic at Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park and Louisville Fern Creek.

    Meade County (21-15) opened with an 8-3 loss to Daviess County before beating Pleasure Ridge Park 6-0 in its second pool game.

    The Lady Waves earned a 3-1 win over North Oldham in the quarterfinals before rolling to a 13-0 win over Fern Creek in the semifinals.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Teague,...

    Radcliff resident Linda Brangers was one exhausted mom.

    After spending four hours in line with her 9-year-old son Zachary for former University of Kentucky basketball player Anthony Davis’ autograph nearly one month ago, they waited even longer at Towne Mall in Elizabethtown on Saturday.
