  • 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.

  • PREP SOFTBALL/PREP BASEBALL...

    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.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Wilson, Meade...

    Meade County’s Bo Wilson thought his fastball lacked its usual pop, but that’s about all he could find wrong with his pitching performance Tuesday evening.

    The senior right-hander tossed a one-hit shutout to lead the Green Wave to a 5-0 victory over the North Hardin Trojans at James R. Aldridge Field.

    “My fastball wasn’t popping like it usually does, but I was trying to keep them off-balance,” Wilson said. “I had to mix it up. They hit the ball hard, but right at people.”

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    North Hardin had no problem Tuesday night getting two outs on the 14th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins. That third out proved to be quite elusive, however.

    The visiting Lady Bruins scored all of their runs with one out left in an inning – including their nine-run top of the fourth – as they locked up the No. 1 seed for this month’s 17th District Softball Tournament with a 13-0 rout of the host Trojans.

  • PREP SOFTBALL/PREP BASEBALL...

    Freshman Bailey Blair struck out seven and threw a perfect game Monday as the North Hardin Trojans topped visiting 17th District rival Fort Knox, 15-0 in a game that was stopped in the second inning last week.

    Blair also helped herself out with a single, double and four RBIs. Sophomore Dalani Rainwater added a single, two runs and an RBI for North Hardin (7-13).
