  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL: Slow start dooms John Hardin against Lady Hawks (01/16)

    A pair of technical fouls seemed to take the energy out of the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs on Saturday night.

    After falling into a big hole against LaRue County, the visiting Lady Bulldogs rallied to slice their deficit to 12 points on a 3-pointer by senior guard Kristin Shonkwiler with 50.7 seconds left in the third period.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL: Hawks cruise past Hart (01/16)

    The LaRue County Hawks realized the Hart County Raiders weren’t at full strength, so they might have been thinking a win was going to come easy.

    It didn’t. At least not at first.

    The Raiders jumped out to an 11-6 lead, prompting LaRue County coach Paul Childress to call a timeout where he challenged his team to start playing better on both end of the court.

    LaRue County responded just as Childress hoped, taking the lead less than 2 minutes later and rolling to a 77-43 victory over the visiting Raiders in an 18th District game Friday night.
