    Karisa Akin’s defense of her Women’s Kentucky State Amateur championship didn’t start off well Tuesday at the par-72, 5,707-yard Miller Memorial Golf Course in Murray, but the day quietly got better for the former Central Hardin High School and current Middle Tennessee State standout.

  • WOMEN'S STATE AM: All five...

    Morgan Cross was less than thrilled with her greens game Monday during the Women’s Kentucky State Amateur qualifying round at the par-72, 5,707-yard Miller Memorial Golf Course in Murray.

    The Central Hardin Bruins are on top of the high school baseball world in Kentucky.

    The Bruins won the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament with a 21-2 rout of Mercer County on Saturday night at Whitaker Bank Ballpark. They accomplished something no area team has done since 1975 when Elizabethtown won the state title.

    “I’m speechless,” Central Hardin senior Austin Walters said. “It feels like a dream.”

  • WOMEN'S GOLF: Five area...

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    LEXINGTON– Those expecting a pitchers’ duel Friday between Central Hardin and Louisville St. Xavier were highly disappointed.

    After Central Hardin won a 3-2 meeting in the regular season, this one turned into a slugfest with the Bruins scoring six runs in the first two innings and holding on for an 8-6 victory in the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament semifinals at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT...

    LEXINGTON – The Central Hardin Bruins probably weren’t a household name in high school baseball circles when the season began.

    “People in the state know who Central Hardin is now,” Central Hardin senior Levi McCamish said. “If not, they will by tomorrow.”

    And for good reason.
