  • COLLEGE SPORTS: ECTC Barons...

    Having to leave campus to practice on a bumpy, unlined soccer field surrounded by a gravel lot, potential Elizabethtown Community and Technical College men’s and women’s soccer players harbored few delusions of grandeur Wednesday night during their first official get-togethers.

    Fourteen men and 11 women attended the practice, which was pushed back from its earlier scheduled start because of heat concerns.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: Jeffersontown...

    Western Kentucky champion Jeffersontown led by two runs the rest of the game after scoring two runs in the bottom of the first as it beat Ohio champ Fairfield County, 7-3 in a Pool 3 game during Thursday’s opening day of the Ohio Valley Regional 11-year-old tournament at Elizabethtown Sports Park.

    Jeffersontown’s John Ullom went 2-for-3 with one RBI and one run. Brandon Tucker scored twice and stole a base.

    Fairfield County’s Spencer Knight, Jake Richards and Tyler Monk each had at least one hit and one run.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: Effingham 12s...

    Northern Illinois champion Effingham put on an offensive show, pounding out 15 hits and scoring eight runs in the top of the third – after putting Western Kentucky runner-up St. Matthews in a 4-0 hole after half an inning – en route to a 15-0 mercy-rule win in four innings Thursday in a Pool 3 game during the opening day of the Ohio Valley Regional 12-year-old tournament at Elizabethtown Sports Park.

    The Effingham foursome of Lee Hardiek, Cody Jansen, Cody Grove and Jason Devore combined to go 8-for-8 with seven runs scored and five RBIs.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: EABC 12s playing...

    Tyler Durbin sat around and watched as almost every team but his got to play on the fields Thursday at the new Elizabethtown Sports Park.

    As one of the hosts of the Cal Ripken Ohio Valley Regional tournaments this week, Durbin thought the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission 12-year-old All-Stars would at least get to take the field for their first pool play game against Newburgh, Ind.

    Mother Nature had other plans. Along with the Elizabethtown game, three others already in progress and four more evening games were postponed to today.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: EABC 11s honored...

    When Dawson Swift made his first pitch at the Elizabethtown Sports Park on Thursday morning, he felt an immediate adrenaline rush.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: A stormy...

    Officials running the Ohio Valley Regional 11- and 12-year-old tournaments were intent on playing every pool play game Thursday.

    But storms that began moving through the area in the afternoon wouldn’t let up. With intense lightning all around the park, officials decided to postpone the rest of the tournament to today.

    Play resumes at 9 a.m. at the Elizabethtown Sports Park in both divisions.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: EABC 11s success...

    Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission coach Steve Lucas is tired of hearing his 11-year-old All-Stars having home-field advantage during this week’s 12-team Cal Ripken Ohio Valley Regional Tournament at the sparkling Elizabethtown Sports Park.

    Because honestly, his team has as much playing experience on the two ESP fields as the other 11 teams in the four-day tournament that begins today – none.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: OVR Tourneys...

    While the two host Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission All-Star teams had already seen the new Elizabethtown Sports Park, many of the other 22 teams in town this week for the Cal Ripken Ohio Valley Regional got their first glimpse Wednesday night during the opening ceremonies.

    St. Matthews 12-year-olds assistant coach Billy Warden wasn’t among the park newbies, though.

    As a contractor, Warden helped put together the park’s playgrounds as well as the state-of-the-art Miracle Field near the West Park Road entrance.
