  • PREP BASEBALL: Central cruises...

    It’s been said on more than one occasion hitting is contagious. If that’s the case, the Central Hardin Bruins have a bad case of it.

    All nine Bruins in the lineup had a hit and scored a run in the first inning to help ninth-ranked Central Hardin cruise to a 17-0 mercy-rule victory over the visiting North Hardin Trojans in a 17th District game Tuesday night.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Panthers take...

    Every time Cannon Pender went up to bat, it seemed like he was seeing triple.

    Of his five plate appearances, Elizabethtown’s sophomore left fielder came up with the bases loaded four times.

  • PREP TENNIS: Monday's...

  • PREP BASEBALL: District schedule...

    The 17th District baseball race begins today with a pair of games, but coaches are quick to point out it’s not the start that counts as much as the finish.

    “I always tell the boys the baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint,” Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson said.

    Central Hardin has heeded Thompson’s words in the past quite well. The Bruins have won the last two district tournament championships and they’ve appeared in four consecutive title games and five of the last six.

  • LOCAL NOTES: Meade's Sipes...

    You’d have to think Ryan Sipes had a pretty successful Saturday across the states’ northern border, eh?

    Racing in front of more than 45,000 fans in Toronto’s Rogers Centre, the Ekron native finished fifth in the Eastern Regional Supercross Lites Class. With 115 points, Sipes is third in the season standings behind Georgia’s Justin Barcia (138 points) and California’s Dean Wilson (122). Wilson won the Toronto race and Barcia was second.


    John Hardin coach Adam Lindsey could barely find the words to describe the outing Cody Creamer had Monday afternoon.

    Lindsey said he had never watched a performance like this, and probably won’t anytime soon.

    A senior right-hander, Creamer struck out a whopping 19 batters and was a walk away from perfection to lead the homestanding Bulldogs to a 3-0 win over 5th Region rival Nelson County.


    The homestanding Elizabethtown Lady Panthers fell behind 6-0 after three innings and couldn’t recover en route to an 11-0 loss to Grayson County on Monday.

    The Lady Cougars won their second straight, while Elizabethtown lost its fifth straight.

    Senior Brittany Daniel had a double and single for Elizabethtown, which was held to four hits and committed five errors.



    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins’ hot start to the season came to a crashing halt Saturday during the second day of the TSOA Tournament at Meade-Olin Park in Brandenburg.

    After rolling through their pool with a 6-4 win over Bullitt Central and a 16-1 win in three innings against Breckinridge County, the Lady Bruins (4-1) dropped a 10-1 decision to No. 9 Meade County in the second round of the single-elimination tournament.


    The North Hardin Trojans went 3-0 over the weekend, picking up wins over Gallatin County, Cumberland County and North Bullitt.

    North Hardin has won four straight since its first game under first-year coach Ace Adcock ended in a 7-7 tie because of darkness at Bullitt Central.

    n Junior Andrew Boyles hit a three-run home run and finished with four RBIs as the Trojans rolled past Gallatin County, 12-1 in five innings Saturday.

    Junior Antonio Simmons had two singles and an RBI for North Hardin, which had nine hits.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Green County,...

    Not too surprisingly, the team that ended last season on top of the 5th Region softball mountain for the first time starts the season back on top.

    The Green County Lady Dragons, who went 37-6 in 2010 and were one of the final six teams remaining in the state tournament, are ranked No. 1 in the first 5th Region softball coaches’ poll conducted by The News-Enterprise.
