  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    Before the season began, the LaRue County Lady Hawks weren’t scheduled to host the 12th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins.

    After Friday night, the hosts might have wished they hadn’t changed their minds.

    Senior Kristina Krupinski threw five shutout innings, senior Ashley Hughes reached base seemingly at will and junior Abbi Goedde had the big hit in the Lady Bruins’ five-run fifth inning as runner-stranding Central Hardin eased past its 5th Region rival, 9-1.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central runs...

    The Central Hardin Bruins had an offensive explosive this weekend, scoring 46 runs in three wins in a round robin at Nelson County to run their winning streak to five.

    The sixth-ranked Bruins pounded North Bullitt, 18-2, and shut out Nelson County, 12-0 on Saturday and they rolled past Grayson County, 16-5 on Friday.

    — North Bullitt took a 1-0 lead in the second, but the Bruins racked up 18 runs in the final four innings.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Meade cruises to...

    The Meade County Green Wave were battery charged Saturday morning, while the Elizabethtown Panthers looked like they were in need of a good set of jumper cables.

    Junior catcher Brady Smith and senior pitcher Garrett Ledford combined to drive in four runs and Ledford held the Panthers in check as the Green Wave pulled away for a 10-4 victory at Meade-Olin Park.

  • COLLEGE BASEBALL: Greenwell...

    Several colleges were interested in Chase Greenwell’s services, but one could offer something the others couldn’t match. That made his decision rather simple.

    Greenwell, the former Elizabethtown standout who has spent the last two years at John A. Logan College, committed to play at Morehead State next season. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Greenwell chose Morehead State over Murray State, Middle Tennessee State and Campbell in North Carolina.

  • PREP TENNIS: Meade teams off to...

    Meade County tennis coaches Michele Miller and Mark Zweifel think they have the program rolling ahead at last.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: Weather...

    Jessica Gabhart didn’t get the win she wanted Saturday, but she did pick up one win at the North Hardin Invitational at the Jeter-McKinney Track Complex.

    An Elizabethtown junior, Gabhart won the pole vault by one foot over Erlanger St. Henry senior Jackie Brockman. She won with a height of 8 feet, 6 inches.

  • In gathering of legends, Ron...

    With Kentucky basketball royalty in attendance, a local coach took center stage just a few thousand yards from the gym where he first learned to dribble.

    As a prelude to the Legends of Kentucky Basketball benefit golf scramble, Charlie and Claudia Thurman hosted a shrimp boil Thursday night for a couple dozen roundball notables, including North Hardin head coach Ron Bevars.

  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: North...

    Long considered the state meet before the state meet, this year is no exception for the North Hardin Invitational.

    And it’s back on its normal weekend on the schedule – the second Saturday in May.

    In all, at least 20 schools will be represented Saturday at the Jeter-McKinney Track Complex in Radcliff. All seven area schools – Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, Fort Knox, John Hardin, LaRue County, Meade County and North Hardin – will be competing starting at 9:30 Saturday morning.

  • PREP ROUNDUP: Coty almost hits...

    Senior Isaac Coty was a homer shy of the cycle and drove in three runs to lead the visiting North Hardin Trojans to a 12-5 win over Bardstown Bethlehem on Thursday.

    Eighth-grader Markus Bell singled, doubled and drove in a run, while junior Andrew Boyles had an RBI double for the Trojans (14-13-1).

    Sophomore Eli Carman (2-2) struck out five in six innings. He allowed seven hits, three walks and three runs – two earned.
