    From the time Rob Zoeller arrived in town to start rebuilding the Elizabethtown High School girls’ soccer program, it took the Lady Panthers the better part of 11 seasons to earn the No. 1 ranking in the weekly coaches’ top 25 poll for the first time.

    Elizabethtown (16-2) has spent the past two polls at the top spot and thanks to a suddenly shortened schedule, the Lady Panthers should still be No. 1 when they finally play again.

  • Soldiers' best friends

    During K-9 training at Fort Knox, men in ACUs command dogs, their words sharp and short. The dogs obey, focused and fierce.

    But business can’t hide companionship. The men easily switch their tone when praising the dogs for doing a good job. Just like any dog lover they say “you’re such a good dog” while rubbing the dogs’ heads. The dogs playfully respond, tails wagging and tongues hanging.

    Bardstown’s physical play punished Fort Knox’s football team.
