    Natalie Greenwell was still in bed and yet to start getting ready for school Monday morning when her cell phone began to rumble.

    The buzzing nuisance was a text message from Christian Stefanopoulos, her soon-to-be assistant coach at Morehead State University.

    “She was like, ‘Congratulations,’” said Greenwell, who signed with Morehead State last week. “I was still asleep pretty much and I said, ‘For what?’”

  • PREP SOFTBALL: LaRue County tops...

    For the second time in a span of five days, John Hardin senior pitcher Olivia Greenwell had a tough outing.

    And for the second time in that same span, the opposing team took full advantage.

    The homestanding LaRue County Lady Hawks exploded for 12 runs in the first three innings and finished with 14 hits en route to a 13-6 win Monday night.


    Stevie Delabar was taught early in his professional baseball career it’s best to keep an even keel especially being a pitcher. Whether his team had a lead or he had a bad inning, Delabar never allowed himself to get too high or too low.

    No matter how much he tried to keep his emotions in check Monday, Delabar allowed himself a moment to celebrate. Delabar, a former Central Hardin standout and John Hardin assistant, is expected to sign with the Seattle Mariners today.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    Jordan Daniel showed her unselfish nature early Monday as Central Hardin’s senior catcher hit a pair of sacrifice flies. With the chance to add to her RBI total against the visiting Elizabethtown Lady Panthers, Daniel declined.

    Daniel waved home Ashley Hughes on a passed ball three pitches before smacking a double which would have scored Hughes anyway as the No. 21 Lady Bruins cruised to the 17th District win in six innings, 10-0.

  • PREP BASEBALL: LaRue's...

    Coach Chris Price’s small ball philosophy continues to keep the LaRue County Hawks soaring back into games.

    They’re moving runners over with perfectly executed bunts, staying aggressive on the basepaths and stealing their way back from some significant deficits and turning them into wins.

  • BOYS' PREP TRACK: North...

    The North Hardin High School boys’ track team tried to everything back together Friday afternoon following a faceoff that didn’t go as planned with four-time Class 3-A state champion Louisville Male in a dual meet Thursday.

    A former athlete helped lessen the sting of the loss. Coach James Webb asked Travis Thompson, a 2002 North Hardin graduate, to briefly speak to the current boys’ and girls’ teams.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Schools squeeze...

    It’s the heart of the high school spring sports season, but that doesn’t mean that six of the seven area schools can’t find time to squeeze in a little football.

    Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, John Hardin, LaRue County, Meade County and North Hardin all have concluded their spring football drills. Fort Knox does not currently have a coach after Brandon Combs resigned in the offseason.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: Weekend...

  • SWIMMING: Glenn Mills puts...

    Like Doug E. Doug’s character Sanka Coffie in the 1993 Disney comedy Cool Runnings, the Elizabethtown Dolphins have been feeling very Olympic.

    That’s because as they cap off to their summer practice return, former U.S. Olympic Team member Glenn Mills served as a mentor to the Dolphins during training sessions Friday evening and most of Saturday at the T.K. Stone Middle School indoor pool.
