Today's Sports

  • PREP BASKETBALL: E'town...

    The Duke’s Summer Shootout may be lacking a few teams from last season, but the three-day event still managed to attract some of the top girls’ basketball teams from across the state.

    In its 10th year, the shootout features 19 varsity and 14 junior varsity teams playing today-Wednesday at Elizabethtown High School’s main and auxiliary gyms and Morningside Elementary School.

  • GOLF: Montgomery wins Men's...

    Couple the fact that he was still getting over a recent bout of tonsillitis with the fact that he wasn’t playing his best golf and it’s not hard to see why Stevie Montgomery had all but canceled his morning tee time today in the Southern Amateur Championship qualifier at The Club at Old Stone in Bowling Green.

    After a stellar round Sunday in the final round of the annual Men’s Invitational at Elizabethtown Country Club, the former John Hardin High School standout changed those plans in a big-time way.

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    As Ryan Squires lay on the field at Doug Smith Memorial Stadium, two thoughts kept swirling in his mind. He reflected on what he should have done, but at the same time he had his mind on his future.

    Squires collided with Elizabethtown junior Todd Lucas during a 17th District soccer match on Sept. 9, 2010. After the collusion, the Central Hardin senior tried to stand up and he immediately collapsed to the turf, unable to put any weight on his right leg.

  • STATE SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    OWENSBORO Coaches say it every season: These seniors will be hard to replace.

    Although the phrase has been uttered so many times it seems cliché by now, it’s also true when describing the three graduating starters for the No. 11 Central Hardin Lady Bruins.

  • STATE SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    OWENSBORO Friday wasn’t the end of a great run for the Central Hardin softball program. Instead, the returning Lady Bruins look at it as only the beginning.

    “We’ll be back. We’ll definitely be back. I’m confident we’ll be around,” said sophomore first baseman Brianna Blair, who went 4-for-11 in four state tournament games with three runs scored and two RBIs.

  • GOLF: Barr grabs first-round...

    Joseph Barr is halfway home in defending his Elizabethtown Men’s Invitational title.

    With the help of a 9:40 a.m. tee time, the University of Kentucky junior-to-be posted the lowest round of the day and surged to a two-shot lead after Saturday’s opening round.

  • STATE SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    OWENSBORO Central Hardin finally ran into a team that could outslug the No. 11 Lady Bruins.

    After falling into the loser’s bracket Friday evening with a 2-0 loss to No. 3 Allen County-Scottsville in the winner’s bracket semifinals, the Lady Bruins started slow, rallied and then fell apart in a season-ending 10-8 loss late Friday night to the Calloway County Lady Lakers in the consolation semifinals at the KHSAA Softball State Tournament at Jack Fisher Park.

  • Central Hardin eliminated from...

    OWENSBORO -- After winning twice, Central Hardin lost back-to-back games Friday and was eliminated from the KHSAA Softball State Tournament.

    The Lady Bruins season ended with an explosive 10-8 match with Calloway County. Earlier, Central was defeated 2-0 by Allen County-Scottsville in the winner's bracket semifinal.

    Central rallied for six runs in the fifth inning to take a short-lived 8-4 lead. Calloway recovered the lead in the bottom half of the inning with five runs and added another in the sixth.

  • YOUTH TENNIS: Elizabethtown...

    The Elizabethtown Tennis Commission’s Youth Tennis Tournament begins Saturday at the University Park Drive Tennis Courts.

  • YOUTH SWIMMING: Summer Classic...

    The Elizabethtown Summer Classic kicks off what will be an action-packed summer for the Elizabethtown-based Dolphin Swim Team.
