  • 17TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Central...

    Central Hardin steamrolled its way through 17th District and 5th Region competition last year as the Lady Bruins swept both postseason tournaments before tying for fifth in the state tournament in Owensboro.

    As they host the district tournament this week, the top-seeded Lady Bruins (23-10) look primed to accomplish the feat once again, but with a vastly different look.

  • PREP BASEBALL ROUNDUP: Meade...

    The host Meade County Green Wave erupted for 10 runs in the bottom of the second inning as they cruised to a 17-0 win in five innings Saturday against the John Hardin Bulldogs.

    Jake Wilson and Garrett Ledford each had three hits and scored three runs for the Green Wave (20-9). Wilson had a double and one RBI.

  • PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Meade...

    The Meade County Lady Waves had a busy day Saturday.

    They went 3-2, falling to No. 22 Daviess County, 4-3 in the final of the Monroe Classic at Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park and Louisville Fern Creek.

    Meade County (21-15) opened with an 8-3 loss to Daviess County before beating Pleasure Ridge Park 6-0 in its second pool game.

    The Lady Waves earned a 3-1 win over North Oldham in the quarterfinals before rolling to a 13-0 win over Fern Creek in the semifinals.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Teague,...

    Radcliff resident Linda Brangers was one exhausted mom.

    After spending four hours in line with her 9-year-old son Zachary for former University of Kentucky basketball player Anthony Davis’ autograph nearly one month ago, they waited even longer at Towne Mall in Elizabethtown on Saturday.

  • PREP TRACK: Lady Trojans record...

    LOUISVILLE — Brianna Woodson and the North Hardin Lady Trojans thought they were being overlooked by everyone in the state.

    The Lady Trojans, though, used that for some extra motivation Saturday at the Class 3-A state meet at the University of Louisville’s Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park.

  • PREP TRACK: Lady Panthers bring...

    LOUISVILLE — Elizabethtown coaches Dickie Jones and Jeff McNeil believed they had a championship-caliber team in the girls’ 3,200-meter relay.

    They kept telling senior Brittany Whitworth, junior Lexy Hazle and sophomores Hannah Godfrey and Katherine Kennedy that they could win the state title.

  • GIRLS' STATE TENNIS...

    LEXINGTONAfter reaching the KHSAA State Tennis Tournament’s sweet 16 for the first time in her career, AnnLauren Fiepke had only a quick stay.

  • PREP BASEBALL/PREP SOFTBALL...

    Andrew Boyles and Markus Bell combined for three home runs as the North Hardin Trojans rolled to an 11-3 win Thursday against the visiting LaRue County Hawks.

    Boyles went 4-for-4 with two homers, four runs batted in and scored three times. Bell scored two runs, one of which came on the freshman’s three-run homer in the Trojans’ four-run fourth inning.

    North Hardin’s Brady Patterson had two doubles and two runs, while Antonio Simmons singled, stole a base and drove in two.

    Sy Ogden (3-1) got the win, striking out six in six innings.

  • PREP TRACK: Trojans set sights...

    Senior Josh Ortega had a tough decision to make. He could either participate in North Hardin’s graduation Saturday, or he could help the Trojans compete for the Class 3-A state title.

    Walking across the stage to receive their diploma is something high school seniors look forward to from the first day of school in August, but Ortega couldn’t pass up the possibility of becoming a state champion at the University of Louisville’s Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park.

    “I’m missing graduation for this. We better win,” he said.

  • PREP TRACK: Lady Panthers bring...

    Balancing the many different schedules of some of his athletes has made Dickie Jones’ head spin at times.

    As coach of the Elizabethtown girls’ track team, Jones has had to find the perfect balance with so many of his athletes participating in multiple sports.

    But somehow, Jones has managed to do just fine.
