    For a team as experienced as they are, the Central Hardin Lady Bruins still get nervous – a fact not lost on team members or their interim coach, Jamie Goodman.

    Coming off a shocking extra-inning road upset of powerhouse Owensboro Catholic three days before, the Lady Bruins stumbled through a 6-4 win against Bullitt Central in their TSOA Tournament opener at Meade-Olin Park.

    Following the first round of the Appalachian Wireless Kentucky State Amateur, former Elizabethtown standout golfer Garrett Hinton is within striking distance of achieving his goal of finishing in the top 20 in the state’s top amateur tournament.

    Hinton, an Eastern Kentucky University sophomore-to-be, fired a 73 at the Kearney Hill Golf Links in Lexington on Tuesday. Hinton is in a 17-way tie for 27th, five shots behind co-leaders Bruce Walters and Patrick Newcomb. Walters, of Pikeville, and Newcomb, of Benton, each carded a 68.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    The North Laurel Lady Jaguars’ drive for five almost ran out of gas.

    Down six runs through four innings and still trailing 8-7 with two outs in the top of the seventh inning to crosstown rival South Laurel in last week’s 13th Region Softball Tournament, North Laurel rallied past the Lady Cardinals to earn its fifth consecutive appearance in this week’s state tournament at Jack Fisher Park in Owensboro.

  • GOLF: Area golfers try to stay...

    Garrett Hinton has one piece of advice for Mike Roberts, who’s competing in the Appalachian Wireless Kentucky State Amateur Championship for the first time starting today: act like it’s any other tournament.

    Hinton, who just wrapped up his freshman year at Eastern Kentucky University, admitted to being slightly nervous when he teed off in last year’s tournament at Gibson Bay Golf Course in Richmond.

    The Central Hardin Bruins didn’t have to wait long to find out their first round opponent for the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament.

  • PREP BASEBALL OPINION: Bruins...

    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.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

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

    Central Hardin’s final five hitters in the lineup did most of the damage to spark the host Bruins to an 8-1 victory over the Campbellsville Eagles and lead them to the 5th Region Baseball Tournament championship for the second consecutive year.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    After his team was beaten soundly by Central Hardin in the regular season, first-year LaRue County coach Aaron Howell knew his Lady Hawks would need a perfect game in order to compete with the 11th-ranked Lady Bruins if they saw each other again in the 5th Region Softball Tournament.

    The Lady Hawks didn’t get their perfect game, but Kristina Krupinski nearly did.

    For The News-Enterprise

    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.
