    On first glance, the bottom half of the 5th Region Baseball Tournament bracket appears to be loaded.

    Three of the four teams with winning records in the tournament, which will be held at Central Hardin, are in bottom half of the bracket. All three teams have 24 or more victories.

    Defending region champion Central Hardin, the 17th District champion, meets the 19th District runner-ups Nelson County Cardinals (12-20) at 6:30 p.m. Monday. The Bruins (29-4) beat Nelson County, 12-0 on May 14.

  • REGIONAL SOFTBALL: LaRue plays...

    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.
