    Four pitchers combined on a one-hitter to lead the visiting North Hardin Trojans to a 14-0 win in five innings over 17th District rival Fort Knox on Tuesday.

    Junior Andrew Boyles (2-2), senior Aaron Yates, sophomore Eli Carman and senior Isaac Coty shut the Eagles (2-13 overall, 0-4 in district) down. Boyles struck out four and allowed the one hit in two innings.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Morse, Central...

    Central Hardin senior Russ Morse has a reputation of coming through with clutch hits during his career.

    No one knows it better than the Elizabethtown Panthers.

    Morse crushed a tie-breaking two-run homer in the fifth inning to lift the ninth-ranked Bruins to a 5-1 victory over Elizabethtown in a pivotal 17th District game Tuesday evening at Central Park.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Hughes, Lady...

    Central Hardin softball coach Mark Martin had saved this trick play for years.

    With the bases loaded and the Lady Bruins needing some type of pick-me-up against North Hardin ace Andrea Whalen, he decided to put a deceptive rundown ploy to use.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Natalie Greenwell was still in bed and yet to start getting ready for school Monday morning when her cell phone began to rumble.

    The buzzing nuisance was a text message from Christian Stefanopoulos, her soon-to-be assistant coach at Morehead State University.

    “She was like, ‘Congratulations,’” said Greenwell, who signed with Morehead State last week. “I was still asleep pretty much and I said, ‘For what?’”

  • PREP SOFTBALL: LaRue County tops...

    For the second time in a span of five days, John Hardin senior pitcher Olivia Greenwell had a tough outing.

    And for the second time in that same span, the opposing team took full advantage.

    The homestanding LaRue County Lady Hawks exploded for 12 runs in the first three innings and finished with 14 hits en route to a 13-6 win Monday night.

  • MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Delabar...

    Stevie Delabar was taught early in his professional baseball career it’s best to keep an even keel especially being a pitcher. Whether his team had a lead or he had a bad inning, Delabar never allowed himself to get too high or too low.

    No matter how much he tried to keep his emotions in check Monday, Delabar allowed himself a moment to celebrate. Delabar, a former Central Hardin standout and John Hardin assistant, is expected to sign with the Seattle Mariners today.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    Jordan Daniel showed her unselfish nature early Monday as Central Hardin’s senior catcher hit a pair of sacrifice flies. With the chance to add to her RBI total against the visiting Elizabethtown Lady Panthers, Daniel declined.

    Daniel waved home Ashley Hughes on a passed ball three pitches before smacking a double which would have scored Hughes anyway as the No. 21 Lady Bruins cruised to the 17th District win in six innings, 10-0.

  • PREP BASEBALL: LaRue's...

    Coach Chris Price’s small ball philosophy continues to keep the LaRue County Hawks soaring back into games.

    They’re moving runners over with perfectly executed bunts, staying aggressive on the basepaths and stealing their way back from some significant deficits and turning them into wins.
