  • REGIONAL SOFTBALL: LaRue plays host

    Last year, the Central Hardin Lady Bruins hoped to meet the Green County Lady Dragons in the 5th Region Softball Tournament final.

    That didn’t happen. And it won’t happen this year, either.

    During Saturday morning’s region tournament draw meeting at host LaRue County, the ninth-ranked Lady Dragons (28-6) and the No. 11 Lady Bruins (31-4) both drew into the top bracket, meaning they could meet in the early semifinal at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

    LaRue County completed its decade-long 18th District Baseball Tournament sweep.

    Junior Slade Owens had three hits and four RBIs, junior Kyle Sheeran broke out of a hitting funk and junior pitcher Wesley Kessinger untangled himself out of a handful of jams as LaRue County defeated Green County, 11-1 in six innings in Wednesday night’s championship game at Hart County.

  • 18th District Baseball: Hawks defeat Hart

    MUNFORDVILLE — LaRue County coach Chris Price thought the Hawks looked way too timid Monday evening.

    In the first five minutes, they allowed the first two batters to reach base. They committed an error. And they looked nothing like the nine-time defending 18th District Baseball Tournament champions.

    Then came a 27-minute lightning delay, during which Price reminded the Hawks to become more assertive.

  • DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks fall to Green

    Brigitte Skaggs had the Green County Lady Dragons on the ropes.

    The LaRue County freshman pitcher had struck out nine batters through 6 1/3 innings, keeping the Lady Hawks in the game against the four-time defending 18th District Softball Tournament champions at Hart County High School on Tuesday.

    Then came the seventh inning.

    Second-seeded LaRue County committed two costly errors – including one that led to the game-winning run – as top-seeded Green County rallied for a 3-2 victory to win its fifth consecutive district title.

    With the faint hue of green appearing in thousands of gardens and farms, the growing season has officially begun in Kentucky. While most of the resulting produce is destined for store shelves and personal pantries, there is growing demand for it to appear in kitchens that haven’t seen locally-grown fruit and vegetables for decades but are keys to children’s nutrition.
