    Eighth-grader Kelsey McGuffin homered in the third inning Wednesday before sophomore Baylee Sullivan and senior Kristina Krupinski hit back-to-back homers in the fifth as the 12th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins held off homestanding Glasgow, 7-6.

    Senior Ashley Hughes went 2-for-5 with one stolen base and one run scored, while Krupinski and McGuffin also singled.

  • PREP BASEBALL: E'town...

    Coming off a one-hit shutout loss to 10th-ranked Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park two days earlier, Elizabethtown coach Don Pitts was worried how his team would respond Wednesday evening against 17th District rival North Hardin.

    Just fine, thank you very much.

    The Panthers pounded out 17 hits, including four for extra bases, en route to a 15-3 win in five innings at Panther Baseball Park.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: Holloway...

    After missing a month because of an injury, Halie Holloway is finally starting to hit her stride again.

    A groin injury suffered at the Heart of the Bluegrass on April 16 nearly derailed Holloway’s season. But the John Hardin senior has returned to the track with a vengeance and with the goal of defending her Class 3-A state championship in the triple jump.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central cruises...

    After a disappointing loss Tuesday night, the Central Hardin Bruins didn’t let it bother them for long.

    Playing less than 24 hours after a 9-7 loss to 10th-ranked Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park, when Central Hardin let a two-run lead in the final inning slip away, the fourth-ranked Bruins jumped out front early and never looked back on their way to a six-inning 14-3 pounding of the homestanding John Hardin Bulldogs in a 17th District game Wednesday evening.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Big first inning...

    Andrea Whelan has never lacked confidence on the softball field and although later than she would have liked, Brittanie Mahanna and the rest of the North Hardin Trojans appear to be playing with that same flair and aggression.

    Mahanna was one of several Trojans with multiple hits and North Hardin used a disastrous first half-inning from John Hardin defensively as it cruised to a 4-0 win Wednesday against the homestanding Lady Bulldogs.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central falls to...

    The Central Hardin Bruins probably don’t know much about fishing, but they will probably remember Tuesday night’s game for the one that got away.

    The fourth-ranked Bruins led 7-5 after six innings, but the 10th-ranked Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park Panthers rallied for two runs in the top of the seventh and added two more in the eighth to pull out a 9-7 victory.

    “We definitely let this get away,” Central Hardin senior catcher Russ Morse said. “We had plenty of chances.”

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Thompson hired as...

    Fort Knox is known for the United States Bullion Depository, which houses a large portion of United States official gold reserves.

    Shawn Thompson doesn’t think that’s the only gold on post. Thompson was hired last week as Fort Knox’s new football coach, taking over for Brandon Combs, who resigned in January. Thompson believes he’s struck it rich.

    Hares Patel and Kevin Britt (CH) def. Bradon Proffitt/Cody Hughes (NH), 6-4, 7-5


    North Hardin senior pitcher Andrea Whelan recorded her second 19-strikeout game of the season, fanning every Bullitt Central batter at least once, to lead the Trojans to a 2-1 win in 10 innings Tuesday against the Lady Cougars (15-16).

    Whelan (13-14) recorded her 300th strikeout of the season in the third inning, when the game was stopped and she was given a game ball. She also went 3-for-5 with a double and a stolen base.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: LaRue County...

    After his team had blown eight leads in the final two innings, first-year LaRue County coach Aaron Howell thought his Lady Hawks could be in line for another late-game setback Tuesday while visiting cousin Corey Yates and his John Hardin Lady Bulldogs.

    Instead, the Lady Hawks finally caught a break in the top of the ninth inning as junior shortstop Megan Smith reached base on a no-out error error and scored two batters later on a groundout by senior right fielder Cassady Crim as they held on for a 6-5 win.
