  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    LEXINGTON Central Hardin senior Matt Nichols has seen this tactic from teams before, but this time was different.

    At least the outcome was.

    With runners on second and third in the top of the fifth, Owensboro Apollo elected to intentionally walk senior Ryan Squires to get to Nichols, who made the Eagles regret their decision.

  • PREP BASEBALL: John Hardin'...

    Coaching three sports for several years took a hit on Adam Lindsey and as a result, he’s decided to give up coaching the sport involving a bat.

    After five seasons in charge of the John Hardin Bulldog baseball program, Lindsey tendered his resignation last week.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Graffree accepts...

    Central Hardin senior-to-be Patrick Graffree has had a whirlwind last three days, but he wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

    The 6-foot-4, 277-pound defensive end attended the University of Kentucky’s camp Sunday, and a day later, Graffree had a scholarship offer from Wildcat coach Joker Phillips. Graffree accepted on the spot, choosing Kentucky over Western Kentucky, Louisville, North Carolina State and Tennessee, all of which showed an interest in him.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Bruins face...

    Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson realizes how good the Owensboro Apollo Eagles are. Especially since the Eagles are nearly a carbon copy of his Bruins.

    “I was talking to a coach earlier today and he said, ‘They are a lot like you guys,” Thompson said. “They have a coach in Coach (Bob) Mantooth who has over 800 wins and is very well respected. He’s one of the best coaches in the state. They have a veteran ballclub. They play some young kids, but they are a very experienced team.”

  • ATHLETICS: Toppers on Tour stops...

    A countdown on the home page of Western Kentucky University athletics tells fans the season-opening game with the University of Kentucky in Nashville, Tenn., is 79 days away.

    Hearing second-year coach Willie Taggart speak Tuesday during the school’s Toppers on Tour stop at Freeman Lake Park, one might think the game was mere days away.

    Taggart, a former Hilltopper standout who is only 1-of-4 players to have their jersey retired by the school, is amped for the game already.

  • COLLEGE BASEBALL: Down 6-0,...

    Kyle Medley’s plan worked out perfect.

    And the inaugural Snappy Tomato Baseball Classic received a bit of a surprising result.

  • STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT:...

    LEXINGTON The Central Hardin Bruins did a complete 180 after what happened to them in last season.

    The Bruins put together one of their most complete games of the season – getting a superb pitching performance from senior Austin Walters, banging out 11 hits and playing flawless defense – to cruise past the George Rogers Clark Cardinals, 9-0 on Monday night in the first round of the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central faces...

    LEXINGTON The Central Hardin Bruins are hoping their experience from last season will pay off this season.

    The Bruins are making their second consecutive appearance in the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament. They play the George Rogers Clark Cardinals at 8:30 tonight at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.

  • 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.
