  • BASEBALL: Adcock makes MLB debut...

    KANSAS CITY It sure didn’t take Nathan Adcock long to see his first action for the Kansas City Royals.

    A former North Hardin High School standout, the rookie reliever threw a scoreless eighth inning Thursday afternoon in the Royals’ 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels.


    Senior Cody Creamer and freshman Dale Gumm each homered as the homestanding John Hardin Bulldogs cruised past 17th District rival Fort Knox, 15-5 in six innings Thursday.

    John Hardin (1-1 district) led 9-0 after three innings and 12-1 after four before the Eagles cut the lead to 12-5 in the sixth. But the Bulldogs scored three times to invoke the mercy rule.

    Senior Garrett Mitchell doubled for John Hardin, which had 11 hits.

    Fort Knox (1-5 overall, 0-1) was held to five hits. Sophomore Ryan Borowski took the loss for the Eagles.


    It didn’t matter if she was pitching the ball or hitting it, North Hardin senior Andrea Whelan dominated the Fort Knox Lady Eagles from two sides Thursday in leading the visiting Trojans to a 15-0 mercy-rule 17th District win in four innings.

    Whelan struck out 10 and was a triple from junior Breezy Jackson away from a perfect game. She helped herself by belting three doubles and driving in four runs.

  • CYCLING: Charity bike ride for...

    Sgt. Maj. Paul Gray has given to so many without expecting anything in return over the years. From organizing food drives to delivering food baskets to homes in the area as part of the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps’ annual food delivery program, Gray has been more than willing to offer a hand when it’s needed.

    Now, North Hardin High School girls’ track and cross country coach John Russell thinks it’s time for the community to give something back to Gray.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: LaRue...

    With all seven local schools in attendance, LaRue County boys’ track coach Jeremy Blair feels this year’s LaRue County Invitational could be a pretty intense early-season meet.

    Fifteen schools in all will be competing tonight at LaRue County High School. But the draw is the many intriguing matchups between the seven area squads – Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, Fort Knox, John Hardin, LaRue County, Meade County and North Hardin – the invitational presents.

  • PREP BASEBALL: E'town falls...

    North Hardin coach Ace Adcock wanted to see how his team would respond after a 17-0 loss to Central Hardin on Tuesday and the Trojans answered the challenge, taking an early lead.

    Then it was Elizabethtown coach Don Pitts's turn to see how his young team would react after falling behind early. Pitts had to be pleased with what he saw as the Panthers exploded in the final four innings en route to a 12-1 mercy-rule win on Thursday night in a 17th District game at James R. Aldridge Field.
