  • YOUTH BASEBALL: EABC 11s honored...

    When Dawson Swift made his first pitch at the Elizabethtown Sports Park on Thursday morning, he felt an immediate adrenaline rush.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: A stormy...

    Officials running the Ohio Valley Regional 11- and 12-year-old tournaments were intent on playing every pool play game Thursday.

    But storms that began moving through the area in the afternoon wouldn’t let up. With intense lightning all around the park, officials decided to postpone the rest of the tournament to today.

    Play resumes at 9 a.m. at the Elizabethtown Sports Park in both divisions.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: EABC 11s success...

    Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission coach Steve Lucas is tired of hearing his 11-year-old All-Stars having home-field advantage during this week’s 12-team Cal Ripken Ohio Valley Regional Tournament at the sparkling Elizabethtown Sports Park.

    Because honestly, his team has as much playing experience on the two ESP fields as the other 11 teams in the four-day tournament that begins today – none.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: OVR Tourneys...

    While the two host Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission All-Star teams had already seen the new Elizabethtown Sports Park, many of the other 22 teams in town this week for the Cal Ripken Ohio Valley Regional got their first glimpse Wednesday night during the opening ceremonies.

    St. Matthews 12-year-olds assistant coach Billy Warden wasn’t among the park newbies, though.

    As a contractor, Warden helped put together the park’s playgrounds as well as the state-of-the-art Miracle Field near the West Park Road entrance.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: Offense driving...

    Jey Gregory and the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission 12-year-old All-Stars have prided themselves on having a top-notch defense over the last few summers.

    But last week during the Cal Ripken West Kentucky State Tournament in Louisville, the team’s offense came to life in a big-time fashion.

    Elizabethtown scored 14 or more runs in three of its four games en route to the title at Germantown. EABC outscored its four opponents – Prairie Village, Jeffersontown, St. Matthews and West Louisville – by a whopping 45 runs.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: ECTC Barons’ AD...

    During an organizational meeting Friday night, longtime Elizabethtown Community and Technical College president Dr. Thelma White told her future Baron sports participants they were students first and athletes second.

    Sports will still come second to acting athletic director Dr. Dale Buckles as well.

    Buckles will miss tonight’s inaugural women’s and men’s soccer practices because he has to teach a twice-a-week Psychology 110 class from 6 to 8:45.

  • GIRLS' PREP GOLF: E'...

    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins have dominated the 3rd Region, winning eight of the last nine tournaments. But adding number nine won’t be an easy task for the Lady Bruins.

    Central Hardin should be challenged by a familiar foe and a new one. The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers, who haven’t won a region title since 2008, have reloaded and the North Hardin Lady Trojans, led by star Lydia Gumm, will field a team for the first time in six years.

  • BOYS' PREP GOLF: Panthers...

    The Central Hardin Bruins reached the mountain top last season as they won the program’s first 5th Region championship. Now the trick becomes staying there, which could prove to be more difficult than their climb there.

    There are plenty of teams lining up to challenge, starting with the Elizabethtown Panthers, who look to rebound this season after a disappointing finish last year.
