  • PREP BASEBALL: Freyberger's...

    One of Austin Freyberger’s teammates broke one of baseball’s unwritten rules: never talk to a pitcher who’s throwing a no-hitter.

    Before Freyberger took the mound for the fourth inning, freshman teammate Conner Kindred mentioned the no-hit bid.


    Freyberger took the no-hit bid into the fourth and wound up settling for a two-hit shutout as he led the Elizabethtown Panthers to a 5-0 win Tuesday over 17th District rival John Hardin.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central knocks...

    The little things can make a big difference.

    The Central Hardin Bruins played flawless defense behind pitchers Josh Krupinski and Drew Harrington and they took advantage of their scoring chances Tuesday to post a 6-2 victory over the North Hardin Trojans in a 17th District game at James R. Aldridge Field.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Bo knows how to...

    It’s in the nature of most high-level athletes to play through pain and rush back from injury when possible. That’s the mentality of Meade County senior Bo Wilson.


    Not even wood bats could slow down the sixth-ranked Central Hardin Bruins.

    The Bruins pounded out 18 hits in two games Friday as they beat Franklin-Simpson, 10-0 in five innings and Campbellsville, 9-0 in their own Wooden Bat Classic.

    Saturday’s games were rained out.

    n Sophomore Josh Krupinski threw a one-hitter as Central Hardin (17-4) mercy-ruled Franklin-Simpson.

    Krupinski (4-1) struck out seven and hit one batter.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Sheeran, Hawks...

    Standing on third base with two outs in the seventh Friday afternoon, LaRue County senior Kyle Sheeran couldn’t believe what he was seeing.

    LaRue County senior Jesse Johnson attempted to steal second base, and John Hardin junior catcher Zach Miller tried to throw him out. Sheeran saw his opportunity and stole home to score the winning run as the visiting Hawks topped 5th Region rival John Hardin, 5-4 for their fifth straight win.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Thompson named...

    The search for North Hardin’s next football coach kept leading the committee back to one guy – Brent Thompson.

    Thompson was named North Hardin’s football coach Friday evening after the five-member committee completed its extensive search to find Crad Jaggers’ replacement. Thompson, 36, was an assistant coach last season at North Hardin.

    “I’m ecstatic,” Thompson said Saturday. “It’s a great school and we have great kids. It’s a great opportunity for me.”

  • PREP BASEBALL: Green Wave knock...

    What started out as a pitcher’s duel turned into a high-scoring affair.

    The Meade County Green Wave led 1-0 through five innings before exploding for nine runs in the sixth and then holding on for a 10-6 victory over the Elizabethtown Panthers on Friday in the Elizabethtown Wooden Bat Classic at Ron Myers Field.

    The Green Wave sent 15 batters to the plate in the sixth and their first 10 reached base safely. They used five hits – all singles – and seven walks to break the game open.
