  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: North Hardin...

    Richard Lawson’s coaching debut got off to a heart-pounding start in what was a crazy night of introductions.

    With the initiation of best 3-of-5 into volleyball matches this season, the North Hardin Lady Trojans coronated their new coach by going the distance against 17th District rival John Hardin.

  • MEN'S GOLF: Thirteen area...

    More than a dozen players with area ties are among the 157 men teeing it up today and Wednesday in the Kentucky Open at the 7,103-yard, par-72 Traditions Golf Club in Hebron.

    The championship is scheduled to be a 54-hole stroke play competition. The low 70 players (and ties) through Wednesday make the cut for Thursday’s final 18-hole round.

    Elizabethtown resident professional Micheal Carter Demary is in the opening threesome. He tees off at 8 a.m. today from hole one and 12:45 p.m. Wednesday from hole 10.

  • BASEBALL: Rosenberg shines in...

    The Philadelphia Phillies made news Friday when they continued their fire sale by trading right-handed pitcher Joe Blanton – who had been slated to pitch that night against the Arizona Diamondbacks – to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

    The move had a local connection, too, as the Phillies recalled former Meade County High School and ex-University of Louisville star pitcher B.J. Rosenberg from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take Blanton’s roster spot.

    Give Rosenberg credit for trying to make the most of his return to the big leagues.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Green Wave make...

    The Meade County Green Wave haven’t been able to go to football camp the last few seasons, but once Coach Larry Mofield was able to secure a spot in the camp there was one thing he knew his team would do.

    And it didn’t have much to do with football.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Experience...

    There’s an old saying about what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.
    If that’s the case, the LaRue County Lady Hawks should be more powerful this season after last year’s struggles.
    LaRue County went 12-21 in 2011, losing to Green County in the 18th District Tournament final and to eventual champion Central Hardin in the 5th Region Tourna-ment quarterfinals. But with four starters and five reserves back, the Lady Hawks could be back among the region’s elite like they’ve gotten accustomed to under coach Ben Schell.
