    BOWLING GREEN — About the only consistent thing this year for the inconsistent Western Kentucky University Hilltoppers has been senior forward Steffphon Pettigrew.

  • BOYS' 17TH DISTRICT TOURNAMENT: Four teams, two region spots (2/24)

    It’s strange how the Boys’ 17th District Tournament worked out. John Hardin and North Hardin get to play teams they swept during the regular season, which has the coaches a little uneasy heading into tonight’s semifinal matchup, considering the adage it’s hard to beat a team three times.

    “People ask me who I’d like to play in the district tournament and I say none of them,” John Hardin coach Mark Wells said. “Whoever you play, it’s going to be a tough game.”

  • GIRLS' 17TH DISTRICT TOURNAMENT: E'town cruises past John Hardin (2/24)

    The 17th District coaches thought Elizabethtown was the clear-cut favorite entering the postseason tournament and the fifth-ranked Lady Panthers showed why Wednesday night.

    The Lady Panthers used a smothering defense to stymie John Hardin and they did a good job of distributing the ball for open shot after open shot on their way to dismantling the Lady Bulldogs, 77-31 in the Girls’ 17th District Basketball Tournament semifinals at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium.
