  • 17TH DISTRICT BASEBALL...

    The Central Hardin Bruins know exactly when to get the bats cranked up.

    Central Hardin’s offense came to life at the start of the postseason – much like the last two years – as the Bruins pounded out 14 hits to cruise to a 15-3 mercy-rule victory over the North Hardin Trojans in the 17th District Baseball Tournament semifinals Tuesday evening at James R. Aldridge Field.

  • 18TH DISTRICT BASEBALL...

    Jesse Johnson admits he likes pitching in pressure situations.

  • 11TH DISTRICT BASEBALL...

    From the time Bo Wilson arrived at Meade-Olin Park on Monday afternoon, Meade County coach Todd Clanton knew his senior right-hander was locked in.

    With their season on the line, Wilson threw a gem to lead the Green Wave into the championship of the 11th District Baseball Tournament.

    Wilson struck out 11 and gave up just two hits as tournament host Meade County topped the Breckinridge County Fighting Tigers, 4-1 in the lone semifinal.

  • 17TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    Maybe it figured that quite possibly the wildest game in 17th District Softball Tournament history was decided by one of the most calm, cool and collected players on the field.

    Although she didn’t look the part in the batter’s circle.

    But once she stepped to the Bruin Field plate with one out and the bases loaded Monday night, John Hardin senior shortstop Catherine Greenwell capped off her 5-for-5 evening with a slap bunt up the middle to help her fourth-seeded Lady Bulldogs rally past the fifth-seeded Fort Knox Lady Eagles, 17-16.

  • 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.
