    Eleven-year-old Skye Llyless lifted a forkful of mashed potatoes to her mouth Thursday at the former St. James Catholic Church school building on North Miles Street.

    Asked what her favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal is, the West Hardin Middle School student smiled before answering, “I like it all.”

    Skye’s mother, Melissa Llyless, said the Elizabethtown family learned of the annual Thanksgiving dinner at St. James through the middle school’s family resource center.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin looks to slow down Purples (11/23)

    The John Hardin Bulldogs have shown so much improvement since their season-opening 44-27 victory over Lexington Henry Clay, which put up more than 350 yards including 245 on the ground.

    John Hardin’s defense was a work in progress early in the season, and the Bulldogs steadily improved from game to game. In the playoffs, they have turned it up a notch, looking like a typical John Hardin defense.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bulldogs must solve Bowling Green ‘D’ (11/23)

    No team created the John Hardin Bulldogs more problems in recent years than the Bowling Green Purples.

    In last year’s Class 5-A state semifinals, Bowling Green’s pressure defense limited the Bulldogs to 232 yards of total offense.

  • PREP FOOTBALL OPINION: Not as much hype, but this is still a big game (11/23)

    Mention two words to the John Hardin Bulldogs and there are two reactions. Either they cringe at the very mention of those words or they immediately see red with thoughts of last year’s failure swirling in the back of their minds.

    If you haven’t figured it out, those two words are “Bowling Green.”

    “Say the words ‘Bowling Green’ and you blood just starts boiling,” John Hardin senior Jalen Fleming said. “This is our biggest game. This is our state title.”

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: 2012 All-Area Team (11/22)

    Abbey Sorrells has earned a little bit of family bragging rights.

  • BOYS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY: 2012 All-Area Team (11/22)

    Marcus Terrell believes he didn’t get off to the best start this season.

    Coming off a solid sophomore campaign, the North Hardin junior thought his times weren’t where they should be.

    After Terrell ran a 17:03 in the St. Xavier Tiger Run, his times ranged from 16:38 to 17:54 in the next five races. Terrell hit his stride in late October – he won the Central Kentucky Run for the Gold and the Lincoln Trail Heartland Conference meet – when he set and broke his personal record in consecutive races.
