    The Central Hardin Bruins have been waiting to exhale the entire season. Now they finally can.

    Central Hardin began the year with high expectations, and deservedly so. When a team wins a region title and returns all but one player the following year, there’s a belief the team should win it again.

    The Central Hardin Bruins used the bottom to reach the top.

    Butler County flashed plenty of offense Tuesday night, but senior pitcher CheyAnne Gaskey didn't really need it.

    Gaskey struck out 13, propelling the No. 10 Lady Bears to a 5-0 win over 18th-ranked Meade County in the semifinals of the 3rd Region Softball Tournament at Meade-Olin Park in Brandenburg.

    The Lady Waves (25-7) had their season ended in similar fashion last year, losing to Butler County in the 2010 region semifinals.

    GREENVILLE Something the Meade County Green Wave had struggled with throughout the season might have cost them a shot at playing for a region championship.

    Meade County went 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position and tournament host Muhlenberg County broke the game open with an eight-run fourth inning en route to an 8-0 win Tuesday in the semifinals of the 3rd Region Baseball Tournament at Mustang Field.

    The Green Wave (16-16) stranded runners in scoring position in the first, third, fourth and fifth innings.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Central Hardin’s potent offense only produced five hits, but the Bruins found other ways to be productive, even getting a little help from the Taylor County Cardinals.

    The Bruins drew nine walks and Taylor County made seven errors as Central Hardin rolled to a 14-3 mercy-rule victory in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament semifinals Tuesday night at Central Hardin High School.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    It’s as if first-year LaRue County coach Aaron Howell was serenading his Lady Hawks with the sweet words of … Jim Valvano?

    After his team rallied for an extra-inning win in Monday’s quarterfinals, the Lady Hawks put on their rally caps again, fighting back from a huge hole in the first inning to stun the North Hardin Trojans, 7-6 in 10 innings Tuesday in the late 5th Region Softball Tournament semifinal in Hodgenville.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    With one hard swing of her bat, Kristina Krupinski took out a year’s worth of frustrations out on the Green County Lady Dragons.

    Central Hardin’s standout senior pitcher crushed a home run to right field in the Lady Bruins’ opening at-bat and jumpstarted her team to a convincing 8-2 win over the defending champions in the 5th Region Softball Tournament’s early semifinal at LaRue County.

    The shot from the area’s home run leader landed on top of the batting cage a good 20 feet beyond the 206-foot fence.
