  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    OWENSBORO Central Hardin made itself at home early Thursday, while North Laurel looked bewildered at Jack Fisher Park despite the Lady Jaguars’ immense state tournament experience.

    Central Hardin jumped out to a 7-0 lead over the 13th Region champions and cruised to a 10-2 win as the No. 11 Lady Bruins won a first-round game at State for the first time in three tries.

  • KHSAA STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT...

    Shoulder and elbow injuries are always worrisome to baseball players, but to pitchers, they are extremely frustrating and annoying and they create a level of anxiety not often seen before.

    Case in point, Central Hardin senior Dylan Shoffner.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Goodman only...

    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins have something – check that, someone – that no other team at the KHSAA Softball State Tournament can offer: an unbeaten coach.

    Since taking over for Mark Martin in the final week of the regular season, interim coach Jamie Goodman is 6-0.

    Goodman will try to make it 7-0 at 6 p.m. today as the No. 11 Lady Bruins (34-4) take on the No. 13 North Laurel Lady Jaguars (25-12) at Owensboro’s Jack Fisher Park.

    No pressure on him, right?

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Lady Bruins lack...

    Entering today’s KHSAA State Softball Tournament, the North Laurel Lady Jaguars have a team full of experience at State.

    Their opponent, meanwhile, has far less.

  • GOLF: Hintons make the cut at...

    The Hinton trio – Clay, Grant and Garrett – made the cut Wednesday at the Appalachian Wireless Kentucky State Amateur.

    Clay Hinton is in a seven-way tie for 36th with a two-day total of 149, Grant Hinton is in a 13-way tie for 43rd with a total of 150 and Garrett Hinton is in an 11-way tie for 61st with a 152 at Kearney Hill Golf Links in Lexington. The top 70 golfers qualified for today’s final round.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    For a team as experienced as they are, the Central Hardin Lady Bruins still get nervous – a fact not lost on team members or their interim coach, Jamie Goodman.

    Coming off a shocking extra-inning road upset of powerhouse Owensboro Catholic three days before, the Lady Bruins stumbled through a 6-4 win against Bullitt Central in their TSOA Tournament opener at Meade-Olin Park.

  • GOLF: Three in contention to...

    Following the first round of the Appalachian Wireless Kentucky State Amateur, former Elizabethtown standout golfer Garrett Hinton is within striking distance of achieving his goal of finishing in the top 20 in the state’s top amateur tournament.

    Hinton, an Eastern Kentucky University sophomore-to-be, fired a 73 at the Kearney Hill Golf Links in Lexington on Tuesday. Hinton is in a 17-way tie for 27th, five shots behind co-leaders Bruce Walters and Patrick Newcomb. Walters, of Pikeville, and Newcomb, of Benton, each carded a 68.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    The North Laurel Lady Jaguars’ drive for five almost ran out of gas.

    Down six runs through four innings and still trailing 8-7 with two outs in the top of the seventh inning to crosstown rival South Laurel in last week’s 13th Region Softball Tournament, North Laurel rallied past the Lady Cardinals to earn its fifth consecutive appearance in this week’s state tournament at Jack Fisher Park in Owensboro.

  • GOLF: Area golfers try to stay...

    Garrett Hinton has one piece of advice for Mike Roberts, who’s competing in the Appalachian Wireless Kentucky State Amateur Championship for the first time starting today: act like it’s any other tournament.

    Hinton, who just wrapped up his freshman year at Eastern Kentucky University, admitted to being slightly nervous when he teed off in last year’s tournament at Gibson Bay Golf Course in Richmond.

  • YOUTH SPORTS: Arflin receives...

    Tracy Arflin wanted to give his father, Tom, one more major recognition.

    His dad has spent decades building up the North Hardin Youth Football League. And now as his father’s coaching career winds down, he wanted to hold a special community celebration.
