  • PREP BASEBALL: Creamer fans 12...

    Cody Creamer wasn’t at his best, but he was still good enough to lead his John Hardin Bulldogs to a pivotal 17th District win Friday night at home.

    The senior right-hander struck out 12 and threw a no-hitter – after a lengthy first inning, that is – as the Bulldogs knocked off the North Hardin Trojans, 4-1.

    Creamer (5-1), an Eastern Kentucky University signee who has struck out 87 in nine appearances, made his first appearance in a week.

    It showed.


    Chris Corder feels like he’s stepping into the perfect job. North Hardin officials believe they’re getting the ideal coach to take over the girls’ basketball program.

    This is what is meant by a win-win situation.

    North Hardin hired Corder on Thursday night to replace James Slaven, who stepped down in March. Slaven compiled a 73-45 record and guided the Lady Trojans to four consecutive 17th District Tournament runner-up finishes and reached the 5th Region final in 2008.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central rallies...

    The Central Hardin Bruins gave the Elizabethtown Panthers a lesson in Baseball 101.

    After falling behind early, the fourth-ranked Bruins rallied by making fundamental baseball plays – bunts, sacrifice flies and solid defense – to knock off the Panthers, 12-6 on Saturday in a 17th District clash at Panther Baseball Park.

    “We clawed it out,” said sophomore Troy Squires, who collected two singles and scored two runs. “We came out flat. We were not ready to play. We were a little lethargic. We kept after it and got it going.”


    Junior Antonio Simmons kept rolling offensively, going 3-for-4 with a double, a homer and five RBIs to lift the North Hardin Trojans to a 13-3 win in six innings over 17th District rival Fort Knox on Thursday.

    Junior Brady Patterson went 3-for-4 with a triple, three runs and two stolen bases, while junior Andrew Boyles was 2-for-3 with four runs. Senior Aaron Yates doubled twice and scored.

    Senior Tyler Hinds (3-5) got the win. He walked three and struck out one in one inning.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: North Hardin...

    With Mary Beth Russell’s shoulder bothering her, Elizabethtown coach Matt Mardis didn’t want to work the Lady Panthers’ junior ace Thursday if he didn’t have to. But by doing so, the visiting North Hardin Trojans got in plenty of work offensively.

    Every North Hardin starter had a hit or scored as the Trojans rolled past their 17th District rival in three innings, 21-0.

  • PREP TENNIS: Fifth Region Tennis...

    This year’s 5th Region Tennis Tournament will lose one special treat.
    Elizabethtown coach Karen Henson, the tournament’s director, said during Wednesday’s seeding/draw meeting at Elizabethtown that unlike in years past, students won’t have to miss school if the weather cooporates.
    The tournament kicks off at 4:30 p.m. May 13, with first-round girls’ singles and doubles matches at Elizabethtown’s University Drive Park Tennis Courts. Boys’ first-round singles and doubles matches are set for 10 a.m. May 14.


    Sophomore Zach Ditto had two doubles and three RBIs and senior Cory Farrow had two singles, a triple and three RBIs to lead the visiting Elizabethtown Panthers to a 15-0 win over Fort Knox in five innings in a 17th District game Wednesday.

    Senior Will Sidebottom added a double and two RBIs, while sophomore Garrett Morgan singled twice and drove in a run.

    Eighth-grader Austin Freyberger (1-1), junior Ryne Kauffeld and Farrow combined on a one-hitter. Freyberger struck out two and gave up a single to Fort Knox junior Matt Hubner in two innings.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Who calls the...

    The art of catchers calling their own game at the high school level has become a rarity. Instead, most high schools have gone to the wristband approach. The catcher, who is wearing a wristband, receives the sign from the bench, consults the band, and then relays the sign to the pitcher.

    Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, LaRue County and Meade County all use a similar approach, mainly working off a wristband to signal in pitches. North Hardin coaches signal in pitches as well. John Hardin is the only school which doesn’t have a coach signal in pitches.
