  • GIRLS' PREP TENNIS PREVIEW...

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers lost several significant pieces from their 11th straight region championship team, but have enough firepower returning that another one is certainly possible.

    Led by senior Natalie Fiepke and juniors Lauran Berger and Mackenzie Snow, the Lady Panthers have significant State and region experience.

    Fiepke was the News-Enterprise Area Player of the Year last season, Berger won a match at State and Snow was part of the area’s most dominant doubles team.

  • BOYS' PREP TRACK PREVIEW:...

    James Webb and the North Hardin Trojans hope last season’s run to the Class 3-A state title wasn’t a one-year wonder.

    The Trojans started the season ranked No. 1 in 3-A by KYTrackXC.com and ended it that way, winning their first state title since 2004 in dominating fashion.

    And with most of that team back, North Hardin hopes to be in contention when State rolls around in May at the University of Kentucky.

  • BOYS' PREP TENNIS PREVIEW:...

    Last season was a banner year for the Central Hardin Bruins – literally.

    They won their first region title and with three battle-tested seniors in Joel Nason, Kevin Britt and Kyle Compton leading the way, the Bruins appear to be armed for another run this season.

    Coach Eric Mitchell, however, is adamant that the past is the past and wants his team to focus on the process of getting back atop the region.

  • PREP BASEBALL: E'town...

    It’s usually harder to hit in cold weather, but don’t tell that to the Elizabethtown Panthers.

    Although they have struggled at the plate so far this season, the Panthers broke loose Wednesday evening despite the cold temperatures to rout the John Hardin Bulldogs, 10-0 in six innings in the 17th District opener for both teams on Ron Meyers Field at Panther Baseball Park.

  • PREP BASEBALL PREVIEW: Bulldogs...

    The John Hardin baseball program might look like a construction zone with the major changes the team has undergone since the end of last season.

    The Bulldogs, who are coming off a 12-26 season where they lost in the 17th District semifinals to Central Hardin, only have two players in the same position as last year.

    Despite the changes, John Hardin does have some experience returning with three seniors back in the lineup and several pitchers who saw time on the mound a year ago.

  • PREP BASEBALL PREVIEW: North...

    The North Hardin Trojans had a small taste of postseason success last season, so they’re hungry for more this year. They don’t want the appetizer portion, but rather the entire full course meal this time around.

    The Trojans are coming off a 19-17 season, which saw them advance to the 5th Region Tournament for the first time since 2006. They shocked Green County to reach the region semifinals before falling to Nelson County, 7-0.

  • PREP BASEBALL PREVIEW: E'...

    If the Elizabethtown Panthers needed any extra incentive entering this season, all they have to do is remember last year.

    The Panthers enjoyed a resurgence, posting a 23-11 record, but they lost in the 17th District semifinals to North Hardin, spoiling what had been a good year after previous back-to-back losing seasons.

  • PREP BASEBALL PREVIEW: LaRue...

    The LaRue County baseball program is going green this season.

    After being inexperienced last season with only two starters back, second-year coach Eric Allen said the Hawks will be even younger and more inexperienced this season as the program undergoes a youth movement.

    “It really does feel like starting over,” Allen said. “Last year we didn’t have a lot of experience but we had seniors who just hadn’t played much because of the big group we had ahead of them that had really been our team for three years.

  • PREP BASEBALL PREVIEW: Knox...

    The Fort Knox Eagles have a changing of the guard at the top once again.

    The Eagles have their fourth coach in as many seasons with Sam Wilson taking over the program from Principal Dr. Gregg Mowen, who guided the team to a 4-28 mark in his only season.

    Wilson is a retired sergeant major who spent 30 years in the Army. He is an assistant coach for the football team and works as a teacher at the school.

    The Meade County Green Wave are armed to make another deep postseason run with the return of their top four pitchers from a season ago.

    The Green Wave went 20-10 and reached the 3rd Region championship before falling to Owensboro Apollo, 1-0. This was coming on the heels of going 27-10 as they won the region title and advanced to the state semifinals.
