  • 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.

  • STATE TRACK & FIELD: North...

    LOUISVILLE Finally, Andrew Stewart can call himself a state champion.

    After being touted as one of the best distance runners in the state, the North Hardin senior can back it up.

    Stewart won the 1,600-meter run Saturday during the KHSAA Class 3-A State Track & Field Championships at the University of Louisville’s Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park.

  • STATE TRACK & FIELD MEET:...

    LOUISVILLE A lingering ankle injury contributed to Kiara Austin having an off day Friday at the KHSAA Class 1-A State Track & Field Championships.

    The Fort Knox junior expected to repeat as state champion in the triple jump and contend for a spot on the medal podium in the high jump and long jump at the University of Louisville’s Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park.

    Austin only medaled in one of them, placing second in the triple jump behind Ballard Memorial sophomore Brandi Jones.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central's...

    The Central Hardin Bruins continued their winning ways – only it was a different victory.

    The Bruins placed five players on the All-Region baseball team selected by 5th Region coaches. Seniors Russ Morse, Ryan Squires and Austin Walters made the first team, while sophomores Drew Harrington and Troy Squires were selected to the second team.

    Five other Bruins – seniors Levi McCamish, Matt Nichols, Dylan Shoffner and Taylor Wilson and junior Cannon Ray – were honorable mention selections.

  • 5th REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    On first glance, the bottom half of the 5th Region Baseball Tournament bracket appears to be loaded.

    Three of the four teams with winning records in the tournament, which will be held at Central Hardin, are in bottom half of the bracket. All three teams have 24 or more victories.

    “The bottom of the bracket is a little tough,” Taylor County coach Jeff Gumm said. “But the bottom line is when you get to region, you need to play good to win.”

  • STATE TRACK & FIELD: Jump...

    LOUISVILLE Being the two-time defending Class 3-A triple jump state champion, a lot of pressure was riding on the shoulders of Halie Holloway.

    The John Hardin senior didn’t seemed fazed by it as she won her third straight championship in the event Saturday at the KHSAA State Track & Field Championships at the University of Louisville’s Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park.

    Holloway won with a jump of 36 feet, 4 inches to beat Lexington Paul Dunbar sophomore Kierra Mohammed by 3.25 inches.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT...

    A slight smile crept across Donnie Baker’s face Saturday and the 5th Region Softball Tournament draw wasn’t even over yet.

    The North Hardin Trojans’ veteran coach had already heard what he wanted to hear at host LaRue County as ninth-ranked Green County and No. 11 Central Hardin drew into the same half (top) of the bracket.
