    The general consensus is that everyone is once again chasing both North Hardin teams in the Class 3-A, Region 2 meet.

    The teams are going for their third straight region crowns at 10 a.m. Saturday, but Lady Trojans coach John Russell thinks his team is part of the pack that will be chasing Bowling Green at the Jeter-McKinney Track Complex.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: E'...

    When looking over the performance list for Thursday’s Class 2-A, Region 2 meet, Elizabethtown coach Dickie Jones saw that his Lady Panthers could potentially score more than 200 points if the seeds held to form and if some athletes got points in events they weren’t expected to place in.

    The Lady Panthers hit the 200-point mark and won their sixth straight region title in dominating fashion over runner-up Warren East, 200-77 at Central Hardin High School. LaRue County was third with 45 points.

    Jenna Sallee has reached elite company.

    The Elizabethtown senior swung her way to her third straight 5th Region Tournament singles title Thursday afternoon, making her one of only four area players to ever record the feat.

    Still, after defeating junior teammate and second-seed AnnLauren Fiepke 6-1, 6-1 in the final, the girls’ top seed was just happy watching the final boys’ doubles match, sitting with her friends and enjoying her last region tournament.

    Finally, she could relax.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: Cardinal Caravan...

    Cierra Robertson-Warren stepped into the spotlight Wednesday and nearly upended the big bird.

  • PREP ROUNDUP: Lancaster records...

    Junior Brittany Lancaster struck out seven and improved to 11-0 as the 18th-ranked Meade County Lady Waves rolled to a 10-0 win over Jeffersonville, Ind., on Wednesday.

    Lancaster gave up only a single in five innings.

    “She threw extremely well,” said Meade County coach Mike Harreld.

    Senior Kayla Padgett hit a walk-off two-run homer and finished 4-for-4 with three runs scored, while senior Kristin Benton and junior Nicole Brown each went 1-for-3 with two RBIs.

    BARDSTOWN — The Fort Knox boys’ and girls’ track teams are sending 13 athletes to the KHSAA State Track & Field Championships next Friday at the University of Louisville.

    Of those 13, six are sophomores or younger.

    Eighth-graders Sydney Hill (3,200-meter run), Regene Gill (100 hurdles, 400 and 800 relays) and Whitney Anderson (400 and 800 relays), freshmen Andre Dean (pole vault) and Kevin Dyer (400 relay) and sophomore Kierra Priest (400 and 800 relays) all qualified for the state meet at Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: Lady...

    When it comes to winning region championships, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers have had no match over the last five years.

    Elizabethtown has won the last five Class 2-A, Region 2 championships, winning by an average of 65.8 points in that span. But coach Dickie Jones said things could be a little more interesting today at Central Hardin High School.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central's...

    Central Hardin softball coach Mark Martin resigned Wednesday effective immediately and assistant coach Jamie Goodman will finish the season as interim coach.

    Central Hardin athletic director Chris Bauer said Martin cited personal and health reasons for his resignation. Martin had compiled a 135-81-1 record since taking over the program in 2006. He led the Lady Bruins to a seventh-place finish in the 2008 state tournament. During his tenure, the Lady Bruins won one 5th Region title and two 17th District championships.

    Demond Thomas realized when he was in college what he wanted to do in the future – he wanted to be a head coach. He just didn’t know that first opportunity would be of a girls’ team.

    Thomas was hired Wednesday as the new Central Hardin girls’ basketball coach, taking over for David Robbins who resigned after two seasons. Robbins was 21-33 in his tenure, including a 13-13 mark this season.
