    SEATTLE — A year ago, there couldn’t have been two more unlikely Major Leaguers anywhere than Nathan Adcock and Stevie Delabar.

    You would’ve had a better chance at hitching a ride on the space shuttle than to have the two of them make it to the big leagues.

    And for both to have come out of Hardin County, well … even the two participants are surprised in the extreme.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP...

    The fourth-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins used a balanced attack to earn a 3-1 lightning-shortened win Saturday over the visiting South Warren Lady Spartans. There were 15 minutes left when a storm moved in.

    Senior Lauren Norton and sophomores Mia Wiersema and Sarah Norris scored for the Lady Bruins (9-1), winners of four straight.

    Norton and junior Olivia Thompson had one assist each for Central Hardin, which led 1-0 at the half and outshot the Lady Spartans (4-3) by 19.

    Central Hardin junior goalkeeper Savannah Haberman saved six shots.

    The Bulldogs were supposed to play Graves County late Saturday night, but the game was canceled after storms moved through Hardin County.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Warren...

    Meade County stayed with Class 5-A No. 5 Warren Central for three quarters before the Dragons fired out one last score which gave them control.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPATE: Green...

    LaRue County was anything but special on special teams Friday night in the Hawks’ 32-20 road loss to the Green County Dragons.

    The Hawks (1-3) gave up a kickoff return touchdown for the second straight week. They also allowed the Dragons (3-1) to score three touchdowns from more than 35 yards out.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: North...

    North Hardin’s offense ran over another opponent.

    Even with an injured Michael Brunson, the Trojans rumbled past Louisville Fairdale and former assistant coach Chris Engstrand as they showcased their rushing attack and some defensive prowess, too.

    North Hardin rushed for 408 yards and three scores and held the visiting Bulldogs to just 178 total yards in a 42-16 victory Friday night. The Trojans (2-1) rebounded after suffering their first loss last weekend and in resounding fashion.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: North...

    Senior halfback Zach Evans and the visiting North Oldham Mustangs ran through, around and over Elizabethtown on Friday night in a 62-28 thrashing of the winless Panthers.

    North Oldham (4-0), which entered Friday ranked sixth in the state in rushing yards per game, ran for 453 yards and seven touchdowns – four from Evans – on 40 attempts. The Panthers (0-4), meanwhile, had 7 rushing yards on 33 carries.
