    Adam Billings recently took a look at the preseason team photo of his first Elizabethtown Panthers squad and shook his head in disbelief.

    Of the 36 players in present for that photo, nine players – that’s a fourth of the roster, folks – will not be on the Doug Smith Memorial Stadium sideline for various reasons when the Panthers (0-5) host northern Kentucky small-school power Beechwood (3-1) for homecoming at 8 p.m. Friday.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Central Hardin-John Hardin game could uncloud district seeding (09/22)

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Kleber returns for Eagles (09/22)

    Josh Kleber is champing at the bit, ready to get back to action after serving his two-game suspension.

    Throw in Fort Knox’s bye week, and it’s been a long three weeks of nothing but practice for Kleber.

  • Rineyville Days schedule change could draw audience longer

    Rineyville Days planners think a small schedule change could make a big difference in how long patrons stay at the festival.

    The event takes place this Saturday, rather than the first Saturday in October. That traditional date has conflicted in the past with some other events, most notably Lincoln Days.

    Rineyville Fire Chief Shane Crutcher said area residents have been visiting Rineyville Days, but they leave sooner than they might otherwise because they try to visit both festivals.

    Senior Sarah Greenwell and the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers will have to wait until the weekend to see how it feels to take the field for a full game as the No. 1 girls’ soccer team in the state.

    Wednesday evening against visiting 10th District rival Meade County was their first chance to experience that rush – and it lasted all of 47 minutes.

    Taking the spot of injured senior Tara Gilpin, Greenwell filled in admirably with one goal and three assists as the Lady Panthers rolled to a 10-0 mercy-rule win against the Lady Waves.
