  • PREP TRACK: E'town...

    With 12 No. 1 seeds for the Class 2-A, Region 2 Meet, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers had some lofty expectations to live up to Thursday night.

    They met them all, and took the drama out of the region meet with a dominating performance.

    Spurred by senior Jessica Gabhart and freshman Darien Huff, Elizabethtown won 12 gold medals to roll to its seventh straight region title at Central Hardin High School’s Bruin Field.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central rallies...

    Sometimes it’s not about how many hits a team gets, but when the hits come that makes the difference.

    After falling behind 2-0, the Central Hardin Bruins collected seven of their eight hits in the final four innings as they rallied to tie the game before exploding for five runs in the seventh to hand the homestanding LaRue County Hawks a 7-2 loss Thursday evening in a matchup of the 5th Region’s top two teams.


    With 11 No. 1 seeds – plus one gold medal already secured – for tonight’s Class 2-A, Region 2 meet, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers seem like a shoo-in to win their seventh straight title.

    Longtime Elizabethtown coach Dickie Jones, however, doesn’t exactly look at things like that.

    He knows the Lady Panthers will have their work cut out for them at Central Hardin High School’s Bruin Field beginning at 5:30 p.m. Running events start at 6.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Hart County beats...

    Trailing 3-2, the visiting Hart County Raiders erupted for seven runs in the sixth inning and tacked on three in the seventh to top 5th Region foe Fort Knox, 12-3 on Wednesday.

    Fort Knox (3-22) lost its ninth straight, while Hart County (10-19) beat the Eagles for the second time this season and snapped a four-game losing skid. The Raiders won 9-8 in eight innings in Munfordville on April 12.

    Senior Trevor Rice had an RBI double for the Eagles, while senior Matt Hubner had three singles and freshman Matt Borowski hit two singles.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    Wednesday didn’t have the feel of a normal 17th District softball game.

    As such, the defenses didn’t feel the need to show up, either.

    Traveling to John Hardin for the third – and hopefully, final – time this season to try to take on the Lady Bulldogs, 14th-ranked Central Hardin finished with seven errors and John Hardin made nine more as the Lady Bruins eventually emerged with a 15-2 win in five ugly innings.

  • PREP TENNIS: Marion County...

    Dejected. Frustrated. Sickened. Disappointed.

  • PREP TENNIS: It's all in...

    It’s finally AnnLauren Fiepke’s time.

    After two years of finishing 5th Region Tennis Tournament runner-up, the top-seeded Elizabethtown senior girls’ singles player captured that coveted title.


    Junior Garrett Morgan drove in sophomore Preston Patterson with a single in the bottom of the eighth inning Tuesday as the Elizabethtown Panthers ended their four-game losing streak by rallying by 5th Region rival Green County, 5-4.

    The visiting Dragons (15-13) entered the bottom of the seventh with a 4-2 lead.

    Junior Cannon Pender doubled, while sophomore Jon Tarrence added two RBIs for the Panthers (11-17).

    Eighth-grader Hunter Sullivan worked a scoreless eighth for his third win of the year.


  • PREP TRACK: Knox girls and boys...

    BARDSTOWN — Kiara Austin put last season to rest with a stellar performance during Tuesday’s Class 1-A, Region 3 Meet at Bardstown.

    Hampered by nagging leg injuries, Austin had a less-than-spectacular junior year. But at Garnis Martin Field, the Fort Knox senior made sure the past remained behind her.

    Austin won 100-meter hurdles, long jump and triple jump and helped lead Fort Knox to victory in the 1,600 relay. She set personal records of 17 feet, 6 inches in the long jump, 36-07 in the triple and 15.11 seconds in the 100 hurdles.

  • PREP TENNIS: E'town girls...

    Reza Haider looked like he was about to get skunked in his 5th Region Tournament boys’ singles semifinal match.

    Central Hardin junior Tad Skaggs, the No. 3 seed, was taking it to the second-seeded Elizabethtown senior in their first set.
