  • 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.

  • BOYS' PREP GOLF: Area boys...

    North Hardin senior Ryan Daniels remembers being a youngster on the high school golf scene. He recalled what it was like trying to make a name for himself against the veterans.

    Now, Daniels is one of several veterans in the area and he prefers being in this position as opposed to his younger days.

  • GIRLS' PREP GOLF: Gumm...

    The first time we saw Lydia Gumm on the high school golf scene she was only 9 years old. The little girl with the bright ear-to-ear smile was easy to recognize. Not because she was usually the smallest girl on the course, but she tugged a pull cart which held her clubs behind her.

    Gumm was a typical 9-year-old in many regards. She liked listening to music and hanging out with friends. But what was uncharacteristic of many girls her age was her unbelievable golf game.

  • YOUTH TRACK: Seven area athletes...

    Since he formed the Kentucky Elite in 2000, Chris Jelks has been fortunate to coach some of the area’s top track athletes during the summer months.

    From the likes of Byron Lewis, Angela Knott and Jamaal Folks in the program’s first few years to Brandon Bagley and Andrew Stewart, the Elite has featured some of the area’s best prep track stars.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: Buckles calls...

    Dr. Dale Buckles jokes he was the youngest male to be hired as a full-time staff member at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

    He’s certainly been around long enough to coach a men’s basketball team and women’s basketball squad for the Barons, watch them both evaporate into thin air and witness the former reappear again along with men’s soccer, women’s soccer and women’s tennis.
