  • HORSE RACING: Morrows happy with...

    Beth Morrow expected to be crushed if her horse, Mucho Macho Man, fell short of winning the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.

    Two days later, Morrow didn’t have the same feelings she envisioned.

    “There’s not the disappointment like I thought there would be,” Morrow said Monday. “My anticipation was that if we didn’t win, I’d be disappointed. But to come in third in the Kentucky Derby, that’s exhilarating.”


    Janaiqua Horne and the North Hardin Lady Trojans are pretty confident heading into the Lincoln Trail Heartland Conference meet.

    They think another conference title is theirs for the taking at LaRue County High School. The Lady Trojans have won at least the last 14 conference meets.

    Even though they’re young and inexperienced, Horne is sure they’ll get No. 15 today. Field events begin at 5:30 p.m., with running events slated for 5:45.


    Visiting John Hardin pounded out 17 hits, including six doubles, in a 16-0 five-inning romp over 17th District rival Fort Knox on Monday.

    Senior Paul Pickerrell had three doubles and three RBIs, while senior Garrett Mitchell had two doubles. Senior Cody Creamer went 2-for-4 with three runs scored and two RBIs.

    Sophomore Garrett Ray added a single and two RBIs for John Hardin (12-12 overall, 5-2 district), which won its third straight.

    Junior Sam Brashear (2-4) struck out three in two innings.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    Jordan Lasley returned to the lineup in emphatic fashion Monday, while Central Hardin went back to the win column the same way.

    The Lady Bruins’ sophomore shortstop went 2-for-4 with a bases-clearing double in her first game after a lengthy stay in the hospital as No. 14 Central Hardin cruised past the homestanding Elizabethtown Lady Panthers, 7-0.

    Lasley spent five days in the hospital last week with a previously undiagnosed cortisol deficiency, which caused her to miss her team’s last seven games.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Meade squeaks out...

    With a one-run lead in the sixth inning, Meade County softball coach Mike Harreld went for a surprise tactic.

  • LOCAL NOTEBOOK: Meade native...

    What happens in Vegas ends up in Ryan Sipes’ trophy case.

    Sipes, a Meade County native, ended his motorcycle racing season in dramatic fashion Saturday night at Sam Boyd Stadium in Sin City, winning the inaugural Monster Energy/Dave Coombs Sr. East/West Shootout for AMA Supercross Lites riders.

    “(This is) cool,” Sipes told Tom Wera of ultimatemotorcyling.com. “After losing the East main (event) the way I did, it’s nice to come back and get this (win). I feel good and I feel that was the best way to end the season.”
