  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER PREVIEW: Meade County (08/15)



    After graduating 13 players, Meade County girls’ soccer coach Dan Shook understands why some coaches in the 10th District might not expect much out of the Lady Waves this season.

    Shook, however, is not one of those coaches.

    “Thirteen seniors are gone. There was a concern about what kind of vacuum that would leave, but a lot of these girls have stepped up and filled spots,” Shook said. “So far, I’ve seen a lot of good things from the girls; good, positive work ethics.”

  • PREP SOCCER PREVIEW: Georgetown dream has been a nightmare for area region champs (08/15)



    Getting to the state tournament recently hasn’t been an issue for area high school soccer programs. It’s sticking around that’s a problem.

    The Elizabethtown and John Hardin boys have combined for three consecutive appearances at State, while the Elizabethtown and Central Hardin girls have combined for 10 straight berths to State since 2000.

    But all of those appearances haven’t equated to much success as area teams are 2-11 in the first round and 0-2 in the quarterfinals since 2000.
