  • 3RD REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    GREENVILLE Through six innings Monday afternoon, the Meade County Green Wave hadn’t produced enough offense to back junior Bo Wilson’s solid outing on the mound.

    Wilson registered six strikeouts through the first six innings against the Grayson County Cougars in the quarterfinals of the 3rd Region Baseball Tournament, but the Green Wave had stranded seven runners – including runners in scoring position in each of the first four innings – at Muhlenberg County.

  • 5th REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Taylor County coach Jeff Gumm admits his team has been streaky this season and the Cardinals showed why Monday in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament.

    The Cardinals exploded for seven runs in the top of the second and coasted to a 10-2 victory over the LaRue County Hawks in the first round of the region at Central Hardin High School.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Bouncing back after an opponent has a big inning hasn’t been a problem for the Washington County Commanders lately. Stopping the big inning has troubled the Elizabethtown Panthers late in the season.

    Both trends continued Monday during the quarterfinals of the 5th Region Baseball Tournament. After Elizabethtown grabbed a 2-0 lead, the Commanders cranked up their offense to post a 7-2 victory at Central Hardin High School.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Aaron Howell tried to loosen the mood Monday night and Ellen Huff said he wasn’t much help.

    But whatever he said must have worked as the Lady Hawks’ senior catcher stroked a tiebreaking single in the top of the eighth inning and LaRue County held on to stun the Adair County Lady Indians, 3-1 in the third 5th Region Softball Tournament quarterfinal in Hodgenville.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Just call it small-ball Central.

    With the usually potent bats of 11th-ranked Central Hardin stymied for a while by Washington County freshman pitcher Hannah Coulter, interim coach Jamie Goodman told his Lady Bruins to put the ball on the ground.

    The tactic worked to shocking success.

  • LOCAL NOTEBOOK: Delabar earns...

    Stevie Delabar is quickly working his way up the Seattle Mariners’ organizational ladder.

    After signing with the Mariners on May 1, Delabar was sent to Class-A High Desert, where he made seven appearances before getting called up to the Jackson Generals, Seattle’s Double-A club.

    Delabar made a splash in his debut with the Generals on May 25, tossing 3 1/3 scoreless innings. He struck out four, but allowed three hits and three walks.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Central Hardin boys’ basketball coach J.C. Wright has spent the last several seasons going to different holiday tournaments and the thought he had was why the Bruins couldn’t do the same.

    Wright and Central Hardin athletic director Chris Bauer discussed the idea at great length in the past year, and after all the talks and finding a sponsor, their efforts came to fruition as Central Hardin will host the Bluegrass Cellular Holiday Hoopfest from Dec. 20-22.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    High school baseball coaches like to describe the season as a marathon, not a sprint. But at this point of the season, the analogy couldn’t be further from the truth.

    The 5th Region Baseball Tournament begins today at Central Hardin High School, starting a three-day race to the state tournament (barring any rain, course). While coaches like to talk about it being a race, that might be true, but it has nothing to do with a team’s legs.

  • 3RD REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT...

    GREENVILLE As a district tournament runner-up, the Meade County Green Wave received a fortunate draw when the 3rd Region Baseball Tournament bracket was released Sunday at host Muhlenberg County.

    The second-round opponent, however, is far less favorable.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    With one swing of the bat last week at North Hardin, Jordan Lasley ended John Hardin’s softball season.

    Lasley’s towering three-run home run to left field forced the mercy rule into effect and gave 11th-ranked Central Hardin a 13-1 win over the Lady Bulldogs in the 17th District Tournament semifinals. The next night, Lasley was at it again as the sophomore shortstop cranked out a triple to help lead her top-seeded Lady Bruins to a 5-1 win over second-seeded North Hardin in the district final.
