  • PREP BASEBALL: E'town...

    The Elizabethtown Panthers had more hits Thursday evening than Michael Jackson or Madonna.

    The Panthers pounded out 15 hits on their way to a 13-3 mercy-rule dismantling of the North Hardin Trojans in a 17th District game at Ron Myers Field.

    “From top to bottom, we’re very capable of hitting like that,” Elizabethtown coach Don Pitts said. “We were hitting throughout the order and it’s good to get that type of production. It’s our most complete game this season.”


    John Hardin High School softball coach Corey Yates resigned Thursday afternoon after 2 1/2 years with the program.

    Yates, who took over for Andrew Hundley before the 2010 season, was 35-47 as John Hardin's head coach. The Lady Bulldogs won 17 games in 2010 and 15 in 2011, but have struggled so far this season as they've gone 3-14.

    John Hardin's district game with No. 18 Central Hardin was canceled Thursday afternoon. No makeup date has been announced.
