  • PREP SOFTBALL PREVIEW: John...

    Deron Bell is coaching the same program he did last year, so it only feels like he has a brand-new team in the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs.

    John Hardin finished 7-19 last season. The Lady Bulldogs had 23 players last year, but only nine are back this season. Confounding matters is John Hardin had just four seniors last year, meaning 11 underclassmen did not return.

    “We had a lot of girls that didn’t come back this year,” Bell said. “For one reason or another, they decided not to play ball this year.”

  • PREP SOFTBALL PREVIEW:...

    With several capable players back from last year and two transfers taking over key positions, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers could be in a position to earn their second 5th Region Tournament berth in three years.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins were forced to make a decision Monday night, and in the mind of Coach Jamie Goodman, it was a no-brainer.

    With two outs in the bottom of the seventh, the tying run on third and Meade County’s Ashley Nikolao at the plate, Goodman had senior pitcher Jessica Nall issue an unintentional intentional walk. It wasn’t a surprising move considering the senior shortstop had already ripped a home run and a double that one-hopped the fence.

  • PREP SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Central...

    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins’ intentions for this season looks like the lyrics to a famous Bachman Turner Overdrive song: Taking care of business.

    The Lady Bruins finished 35-7-1 last season after losing to Boyle County in the state tournament, where they tied for ninth place along with Covington Notre Dame, Montgomery County and Scott County. Although Central Hardin was dominant against 17th District (11-0) and 5th Region (18-0) teams, the 2-2 showing at State left a little to be desired.

  • PREP SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Fort Knox...

    On T-shirts the Fort Knox Lady Eagles will wear throughout this season, the words “we are strong” are written in 12 languages.

    It’s a play on the Army’s “Army Strong” mantra, but longtime Lady Eagles coach Rick Thompson said it applies to his players because he believes they are stronger – mentally and physically – than they were last season.

    “There’s not one thing I don’t like about this team,” Thompson said. “The shirts show how attached we are to each other.”

  • PREP SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Are...

    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins don’t just have high expectations for themselves this season.

    So do the coaches.

    Central Hardin, which finished 35-7-1 last season, entered the season ranked sixth in the state. The Lady Bruins also were ranked first in the preseason 5th Region poll.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: LaRue County...

    Two pitches cost Courtney Johnson two more RBIs Monday afternoon, but the LaRue County senior third baseman was more miffed about her perfect day at the plate coming to a premature end than she was about driving in more runs.
