  • STATE SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    OWENSBORO Central Hardin finally ran into a team that could outslug the No. 11 Lady Bruins.

    After falling into the loser’s bracket Friday evening with a 2-0 loss to No. 3 Allen County-Scottsville in the winner’s bracket semifinals, the Lady Bruins started slow, rallied and then fell apart in a season-ending 10-8 loss late Friday night to the Calloway County Lady Lakers in the consolation semifinals at the KHSAA Softball State Tournament at Jack Fisher Park.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    OWENSBORO The Central Hardin Lady Bruins have been successful this year because of their experienced and high-scoring offense, solid pitching and usually sure-handed defense.
