  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central aims for repeat (10/08)

    Central Hardin has run this town in volleyball the past two years.

    The Lady Bruins have finished unbeaten in regular-season district play each of the last two seasons, taken home a 17th District Volleyball Tournament championship and won 19 straight district matches – including the postseason. 

    As this year’s district tournament approaches, it’s hard to argue how they won’t stay queens of the court again.

    District and region coaches have yet to figure out how to slow down the No. 14 Lady Bruins’ quick middlea attack.

    They’ve followed up that successful campaign with their highest ranking in school history (fourth) and a school-record 13-game winning streak leading to a program-best 18-1 record in the regular season.

    And somehow, some way, their chief rival found a way to overshadow all of that.

  • BOYS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY: Terrell finishes second, Trojans win team title at own meet (10/09)

    North Hardin sophomore Marcus Terrell knew he was in trouble when he looked ahead and saw South Oldham senior Caleb Chappell pulling away from him on every uphill climb Saturday morning.

    Terrell would close the gap on the downhills only to watch Chappell widen his lead each time the duo ascended a hill during the North Hardin Invitational at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

    Chappell won the 66-runner race in 17 minutes, 22.30 seconds – more than 9 seconds ahead of Terrell, who finished in 17:31.76.
