  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL: E'town, Central face off tonight (01/07)

    Junior guard Cannon Ray will readily admit that the last time his Central Hardin Bruins took the court, they didn’t do a very good job of interior defense.

    “We didn’t do a very good job of keeping the ball out of the paint and that’s where they got most of their points,” Ray said during practice Thursday, two days after junior Adam Hendrix and senior Chris Sterusky of 17th District rival North Hardin torched his team for 44 points from inside the paint or the foul line.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Meade falls (01/07)

    Johnson also had six rebounds and one steal for the Lady Waves (2-10), who led 39-38 at halftime but were outscored 16-6 in the third quarter en route to their second loss in four games.

    Sophomore post Maya Luney added nine points, eight rebounds and one block, while freshman guard Carissa Schwartz scored seven points.

  • PREP WRESTLING: LaRue is loaded ... again (01/07)

    Longtime LaRue County wrestling coach Gary Canter took a different approach to his team’s schedule this season.

    Instead of focusing the early portion on duals tournaments, Canter entered the King of the Bluegrass at Louisville Fairdale and the Fayette County (Ga.) Christmas Classic.

    The third-ranked Hawks won both, and Canter is optimistic the beefed-up slate will pay big dividends in next month’s state tournament.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL: E'town routs Central again (01/07)

    Once senior guard Natalie Greenwell got hot Thursday night, it made it impossible once again for the Central Hardin Lady Bruins to slow down Elizabethtown.

    Greenwell had one of her best shooting nights of the season as Elizabethtown started slow before her Lady Panthers rolled to a 73-28 win over the Lady Bruins at Bruin Gym.

    Greenwell made 8-of-12 shots from the floor, including 5-of-6 from the 3-point line, on her way to a game-high 23 points.
