    Senior Keon Williams received the cherry to go on top of what has been a sweet, treat-filled basketball career at John Hardin.

  • PREP TENNIS: E'town locks up girls' title (4/18)

    There were certainly times during the quarterfinals and semifinals Thursday that the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ title streak in the Lincoln Heritage Conference Tournament seemed in doubt.

    But thanks to several key comebacks in singles play – which included a gutsy performance by senior Natalie Fiepke – and more dominance by the Lady Panthers’ doubles teams, Elizabethtown has already clinched its 11th straight conference title going into the finals today at Freeman Lake Park.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Jones' clutch hit lifts Central Hardin past Meade County (04/18)

    After Central Hardin senior Amber Hiller capped off her perfect night at the plate Thursday night, it was up to the youngest Lady Bruins starter to come through in the clutch.

    Two pitches after failing on a suicide bunt which could have given Central Hardin the win – and got Hiller hurt in the process – eighth-grader Meredith Jones hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the eighth inning to help sixth-ranked Central Hardin earn its second 5-4 win this season against No. 13 Meade County.

  • HCS school lunches will go up a dime next school year

    Hardin County Schools had food issues to resolve Thursday on the board’s meeting agenda.

    School lunch prices again will be increased by a dime next school year. Full-price meals for students will cost $2.40, up from $2.30 this year. A federal regulation that was part of the 2011 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids establishes a formula for meal prices and requires the district to implement annual 10-cent increases.

    Based on family income, many students in the district qualify for free lunches or reduced-price meals, which are set next year at 40 cents per day.
