  • 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.

    North Hardin played in its warmest game of the year Monday and Andrea Whelan kept bringing the heat.

    Meade County’s 4-1 loss at Daviess County two weeks ago stunned the Lady Waves at the time.

    But on Monday, it was the Lady Panthers who were left shell-shocked.

    No. 18 Meade County exploded for at least four runs in three innings in the quarterfinals of the 3rd Region Softball Tournament at Meade-Olin Park, beating Daviess County, 14-0 in five innings.

  • 3RD REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    GREENVILLE Through six innings Monday afternoon, the Meade County Green Wave hadn’t produced enough offense to back junior Bo Wilson’s solid outing on the mound.

    Wilson registered six strikeouts through the first six innings against the Grayson County Cougars in the quarterfinals of the 3rd Region Baseball Tournament, but the Green Wave had stranded seven runners – including runners in scoring position in each of the first four innings – at Muhlenberg County.

  • 5th REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Taylor County coach Jeff Gumm admits his team has been streaky this season and the Cardinals showed why Monday in the 5th Region Baseball Tournament.

  • 5TH REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Bouncing back after an opponent has a big inning hasn’t been a problem for the Washington County Commanders lately. Stopping the big inning has troubled the Elizabethtown Panthers late in the season.

    Both trends continued Monday during the quarterfinals of the 5th Region Baseball Tournament. After Elizabethtown grabbed a 2-0 lead, the Commanders cranked up their offense to post a 7-2 victory at Central Hardin High School.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    Aaron Howell tried to loosen the mood Monday night and Ellen Huff said he wasn’t much help.

    But whatever he said must have worked as the Lady Hawks’ senior catcher stroked a tiebreaking single in the top of the eighth inning and LaRue County held on to stun the Adair County Lady Indians, 3-1 in the third 5th Region Softball Tournament quarterfinal in Hodgenville.

    Just call it small-ball Central.

    With the usually potent bats of 11th-ranked Central Hardin stymied for a while by Washington County freshman pitcher Hannah Coulter, interim coach Jamie Goodman told his Lady Bruins to put the ball on the ground.

    The tactic worked to shocking success.

  • LOCAL NOTEBOOK: Delabar earns...
