  • BASEBALL: Adcock to make first...

    Kansas City rookie pitcher Nathan Adcock will make his first Major League start Saturday when the Royals host the St. Louis Cardinals at Kauffman Stadium.

    Adcock, who the Royals selected in the Rule 5 draft at the winter meetings, had never pitched above the Class A level until this season. In eight relief appearances, Adcock is 1-0 with a 2.16 earned run average although he’s given up 19 hits including two homers in 16 2/3 innings.


    Senior Kristina Krupinski took a no-hitter into the seventh inning Thursday as 11th-ranked Central Hardin held on for a 4-2 win over the Breckinridge County Lady Tigers in Jamie Goodman’s first game as the Lady Bruins’ interim coach.

    Krupinski (21-1) struck out three and didn’t give up a hit or earned run until senior Rachel Pile homered after a Lady Bruin error to allow a runner on base.


    The News-Enterprise

    Senior Brenton Smith went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and drove in one as the visiting Meade County Green Wave pulled away from the North Hardin Trojans on Thursday, 6-1.

    Junior Bo Wilson doubled and had one RBI for Meade County (14-13), which has won 3-of-4. Sophomore Jake Wilson added a double, single and two runs.

    Junior Garrett Ledford (6-3) went the distance for Meade County, which led 2-1 entering the fifth inning. Ledford struck out five, walked one and scattered four hits without giving up an earned run.

  • PREP TENNIS: North's Castro...

    For the first time in his high school career, North Hardin junior Chrys Castro collected an individual championship.

    There could be a multitude of reasons why.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: North...

    The general consensus is that everyone is once again chasing both North Hardin teams in the Class 3-A, Region 2 meet.

    The teams are going for their third straight region crowns at 10 a.m. Saturday, but Lady Trojans coach John Russell thinks his team is part of the pack that will be chasing Bowling Green at the Jeter-McKinney Track Complex.


    When looking over the performance list for Thursday’s Class 2-A, Region 2 meet, Elizabethtown coach Dickie Jones saw that his Lady Panthers could potentially score more than 200 points if the seeds held to form and if some athletes got points in events they weren’t expected to place in.

    The Lady Panthers hit the 200-point mark and won their sixth straight region title in dominating fashion over runner-up Warren East, 200-77 at Central Hardin High School. LaRue County was third with 45 points.

  • PREP TENNIS: Sallee, Lady...

    Jenna Sallee has reached elite company.

    The Elizabethtown senior swung her way to her third straight 5th Region Tournament singles title Thursday afternoon, making her one of only four area players to ever record the feat.

    Still, after defeating junior teammate and second-seed AnnLauren Fiepke 6-1, 6-1 in the final, the girls’ top seed was just happy watching the final boys’ doubles match, sitting with her friends and enjoying her last region tournament.

    Finally, she could relax.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: Cardinal Caravan...

    Cierra Robertson-Warren stepped into the spotlight Wednesday and nearly upended the big bird.

  • PREP ROUNDUP: Lancaster records...

    Junior Brittany Lancaster struck out seven and improved to 11-0 as the 18th-ranked Meade County Lady Waves rolled to a 10-0 win over Jeffersonville, Ind., on Wednesday.

    Lancaster gave up only a single in five innings.

    “She threw extremely well,” said Meade County coach Mike Harreld.

    Senior Kayla Padgett hit a walk-off two-run homer and finished 4-for-4 with three runs scored, while senior Kristin Benton and junior Nicole Brown each went 1-for-3 with two RBIs.


  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: Knox...

    BARDSTOWN — The Fort Knox boys’ and girls’ track teams are sending 13 athletes to the KHSAA State Track & Field Championships next Friday at the University of Louisville.

    Of those 13, six are sophomores or younger.

    Eighth-graders Sydney Hill (3,200-meter run), Regene Gill (100 hurdles, 400 and 800 relays) and Whitney Anderson (400 and 800 relays), freshmen Andre Dean (pole vault) and Kevin Dyer (400 relay) and sophomore Kierra Priest (400 and 800 relays) all qualified for the state meet at Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park.
