    LEXINGTON– When Meade County’s Class of 2012 gathers for its reunions 10, 20 or maybe even 50 years down the road, there will be many special memories remembered and some new ones shared.

    For five members – Daniel Kaiser, Garrett Ledford, Brady Smith, Bo Wilson and Andrew Zabel – of this year’s senior class, they’ll recall the 2012 baseball season, the year a special team made Meade County history in more ways than one.

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT: Meade...

    LEXINGTON — The Meade County Green Wave’s quest for the their first baseball state championship came up just a little short Friday night, but the foundation has been laid for a strong future.

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT: Meade...

    LEXINGTON – The Meade County Green Wave finally cranked up their bats in the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament, but the two parts – pitching and defense – of their game that brought the Green Wave to this point let them down.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central's...

    When Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson put him on the mound for the first time last season, Drew Harrington wasn’t sure he’d like pitching.

    As a sophomore, Harrington was the Bruins’ No. 3 pitcher behind seniors Dylan Shoffner and Austin Walters. Harrington went 5-0 with a 2.83 ERA and closed out wins over Owensboro Apollo and Louisville St. Xavier in the state tournament.

  • PREP SPORTS: Select Preps...

    The News-Enterprise is about to honor the area’s best in prep athletics.

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT: Meade...

    LEXINGTON – The Meade County Green Wave have a simple philosophy: If the other team doesn’t score it can’t win.

    Senior Garrett Ledford tossed six shutout innings in the quarterfinals of the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament before the Ashland Tomcats scored two meaningless runs in the seventh for a 4-2 victory Thursday night at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.

    Meade County coach Todd Clanton had no reservations about starting two eighth-graders – Kase Mattingly and John Michael Millay – this season, but he’s been pleasantly surprised how the young duo has performed.

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT: Meade...

    Meade County junior Kaleb Lancaster fell into a lot of bad habits with his swing, so his focus the entire offseason was to correct those flaws. Sounds easy enough, right?

    Identifying the errors in a swing is the easy part, but breaking those old habits is a much more difficult task. Lancaster, though, was determined to get it right.

    “It was extremely hard,” he said. “It took about four or five months to get it right. From the beginning of October to February, all through that time, that’s the only thing I worked on.”

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT: Meade...

    When Meade County coach Todd Clanton hears about the Ashland Tomcats, it’s like he’s listening to a scouting report of his own team.

    The teams have nearly identical styles and records. The similar teams meet at 8:30 tonight in the quarterfinals of the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament at Whitaker Bank Ballpark in Lexington.
