  • PREP BASEBALL: Central falls to...

    The Central Hardin Bruins probably don’t know much about fishing, but they will probably remember Tuesday night’s game for the one that got away.

    The fourth-ranked Bruins led 7-5 after six innings, but the 10th-ranked Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park Panthers rallied for two runs in the top of the seventh and added two more in the eighth to pull out a 9-7 victory.

    “We definitely let this get away,” Central Hardin senior catcher Russ Morse said. “We had plenty of chances.”

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Thompson hired as...

    Fort Knox is known for the United States Bullion Depository, which houses a large portion of United States official gold reserves.

    Shawn Thompson doesn’t think that’s the only gold on post. Thompson was hired last week as Fort Knox’s new football coach, taking over for Brandon Combs, who resigned in January. Thompson believes he’s struck it rich.

  • PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP Whelan...

    North Hardin senior pitcher Andrea Whelan recorded her second 19-strikeout game of the season, fanning every Bullitt Central batter at least once, to lead the Trojans to a 2-1 win in 10 innings Tuesday against the Lady Cougars (15-16).

    Whelan (13-14) recorded her 300th strikeout of the season in the third inning, when the game was stopped and she was given a game ball. She also went 3-for-5 with a double and a stolen base.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: LaRue County...

    After his team had blown eight leads in the final two innings, first-year LaRue County coach Aaron Howell thought his Lady Hawks could be in line for another late-game setback Tuesday while visiting cousin Corey Yates and his John Hardin Lady Bulldogs.

    Instead, the Lady Hawks finally caught a break in the top of the ninth inning as junior shortstop Megan Smith reached base on a no-out error error and scored two batters later on a groundout by senior right fielder Cassady Crim as they held on for a 6-5 win.

  • PREP BASEBALL: LaRue County...

    LaRue County repeatedly smashed and dashed any of North Hardin’s comeback hopes.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: Trojans...

    Two lengthy streaks couldn’t be stopped Tuesday night.

    The North Hardin boys won their 14th consecutive conference crown with 178.50 points to outdistance runner-up Bardstown, which finished with 106.50 points, and third-place John Hardin, which had 84.

  • HORSE RACING: Morrows happy with...

    Beth Morrow expected to be crushed if her horse, Mucho Macho Man, fell short of winning the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.

    Two days later, Morrow didn’t have the same feelings she envisioned.

    “There’s not the disappointment like I thought there would be,” Morrow said Monday. “My anticipation was that if we didn’t win, I’d be disappointed. But to come in third in the Kentucky Derby, that’s exhilarating.”

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD:...

    Janaiqua Horne and the North Hardin Lady Trojans are pretty confident heading into the Lincoln Trail Heartland Conference meet.

    They think another conference title is theirs for the taking at LaRue County High School. The Lady Trojans have won at least the last 14 conference meets.

    Even though they’re young and inexperienced, Horne is sure they’ll get No. 15 today. Field events begin at 5:30 p.m., with running events slated for 5:45.
