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

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central knocks...

    Mother Nature couldn’t have intervened at a better time for the Central Hardin Bruins on Thursday evening.

    The LaRue County Hawks tied the score at 3-3 in the top of the sixth, but before the bottom half of the inning could start, the umpires stopped the game because of lightning. The game was delayed more than 90 minutes.

    When the game resumed, the sixth-ranked Bruins broke the game open with a five-run sixth inning to knock off LaRue County, 8-4 in a matchup of two of the top teams in the 5th Region.

    Senior Ashley Hughes went 2-for-5 with one stolen base and one run scored, while Krupinski and McGuffin also singled.

  • PREP BASEBALL: E'town...

    Coming off a one-hit shutout loss to 10th-ranked Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park two days earlier, Elizabethtown coach Don Pitts was worried how his team would respond Wednesday evening against 17th District rival North Hardin.

    Just fine, thank you very much.

    The Panthers pounded out 17 hits, including four for extra bases, en route to a 15-3 win in five innings at Panther Baseball Park.
