  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Just call it small-ball Central.

    With the usually potent bats of 11th-ranked Central Hardin stymied for a while by Washington County freshman pitcher Hannah Coulter, interim coach Jamie Goodman told his Lady Bruins to put the ball on the ground.

    The tactic worked to shocking success.

  • LOCAL NOTEBOOK: Delabar earns...

    Stevie Delabar is quickly working his way up the Seattle Mariners’ organizational ladder.

    After signing with the Mariners on May 1, Delabar was sent to Class-A High Desert, where he made seven appearances before getting called up to the Jackson Generals, Seattle’s Double-A club.

    Delabar made a splash in his debut with the Generals on May 25, tossing 3 1/3 scoreless innings. He struck out four, but allowed three hits and three walks.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Central Hardin boys’ basketball coach J.C. Wright has spent the last several seasons going to different holiday tournaments and the thought he had was why the Bruins couldn’t do the same.

    Wright and Central Hardin athletic director Chris Bauer discussed the idea at great length in the past year, and after all the talks and finding a sponsor, their efforts came to fruition as Central Hardin will host the Bluegrass Cellular Holiday Hoopfest from Dec. 20-22.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    High school baseball coaches like to describe the season as a marathon, not a sprint. But at this point of the season, the analogy couldn’t be further from the truth.

    The 5th Region Baseball Tournament begins today at Central Hardin High School, starting a three-day race to the state tournament (barring any rain, course). While coaches like to talk about it being a race, that might be true, but it has nothing to do with a team’s legs.

  • 3RD REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT...

    GREENVILLE As a district tournament runner-up, the Meade County Green Wave received a fortunate draw when the 3rd Region Baseball Tournament bracket was released Sunday at host Muhlenberg County.

    The second-round opponent, however, is far less favorable.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    With one swing of the bat last week at North Hardin, Jordan Lasley ended John Hardin’s softball season.

    Lasley’s towering three-run home run to left field forced the mercy rule into effect and gave 11th-ranked Central Hardin a 13-1 win over the Lady Bulldogs in the 17th District Tournament semifinals. The next night, Lasley was at it again as the sophomore shortstop cranked out a triple to help lead her top-seeded Lady Bruins to a 5-1 win over second-seeded North Hardin in the district final.

  • STATE TRACK & FIELD: North...

    LOUISVILLE Finally, Andrew Stewart can call himself a state champion.

    After being touted as one of the best distance runners in the state, the North Hardin senior can back it up.

    Stewart won the 1,600-meter run Saturday during the KHSAA Class 3-A State Track & Field Championships at the University of Louisville’s Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park.

  • STATE TRACK & FIELD MEET:...

    LOUISVILLE A lingering ankle injury contributed to Kiara Austin having an off day Friday at the KHSAA Class 1-A State Track & Field Championships.

    The Fort Knox junior expected to repeat as state champion in the triple jump and contend for a spot on the medal podium in the high jump and long jump at the University of Louisville’s Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park.

    Austin only medaled in one of them, placing second in the triple jump behind Ballard Memorial sophomore Brandi Jones.

  • 3RD REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT...

    BRANDENBURG The host Meade County Lady Waves are in the same 3rd Region Softball Tournament bracket with the last team that beat them this season as well as the team that handed them their final loss last year.

  • GIRLS' STATE TENNIS...

    LEXINGTON For one set, Jenna Sallee played anxiety-free.
