  • PREP SWIMMING: E'town girls believe they can finish in top two (02/11)

    VERSAILLES — It’s not like Elizabethtown coach Mavi Sampaio has high expectations for his Lady Panthers in this weekend’s 3rd Region Championships.

    He only expects his team to finish in the top two with host Woodford County.

    “Oh, yeah, I definitely think we can do that. Why not go for first?” Elizabethtown senior Emma Coakley said during a break in practice Wednesday at T.K. Stone Middle School. “Right now the top team is Woodford County for the girls, but we were close to them last time.”

  • SWIMMING: Giles sisters on opposite teams during regionals

    Sisters Casey and Jesse Giles swim for the same club. They don’t think that’s strange because Elizabethtown’s Dolphin Swimming has plenty of siblings on its ever-growing roster.

    Most everyday after school, the sisters travel to T.K. Stone Middle School for Dolphins practice. They’ll talk about what they had for lunch, homework, funny things said by the lockers between classes and other such things. After practice, they might go get something to eat and then go home.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL: Todd in love with John Hardin's field (02/11)

    To ensure you have a room at a swank hotel or a table at a nice restaurant, sometimes a long-term reservation is in order.

    To play in a quality girls’ basketball event such as the Duke’s Sporting Goods Valentine’s Classic at John Hardin is apparently no different.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL: Lady Panthers facing two top-five teams (02/11)

    Adelaide Luckett doesn’t look at the last two weeks as a grueling schedule for her team. Instead, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ standout senior forward looks at the slate as a measuring stick.

    In a 10-day span, Luckett and her teammates have played or will play the reigning 5th Region Tournament champion, the defending state tournament champion and the second-ranked team in the state, which just so happens to have a player good enough to say no to Connecticut.

    The News-Enterprise

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: UK's Coyle talks at Chamber meeting (02/11)

    While basketball and football command attention, the University of Kentucky athletics department is much more.

    As an example, Kentucky’s deputy athletic director relayed a story about his boss while addressing Thursday’s luncheon meeting of the Elizabethtown-Hardin County Chamber of Commerce.

  • Cool and Unique Classes: Science, social studies and family consumer sciences

    Some classes at area high schools seem more like the TV shows “CSI,” “Law & Order” or “Project Runway” than readin’, writin’ or ‘rithmatic.

    Take the Forensics class taught by Deborah Whelan at North Hardin High School, for example.

  • A Picasso of sorts hanging at library

    What started as an offer to display student artwork at Hardin County Public Library became so picture- perfect it was donated instead.
    “It’s just in the perfect space,” said Kim Bland, adult services librarian, as she stood near a student copy of Pablo Picasso’s “Guernica.”

    Students from Tapestry of Grace Home School Co-op donated their artwork Thursday to the library in a formal presentation.
    “We were just going to hang it,” co-op instructor Margaret Cooney said.
