  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL: Price leads Bulldogs over Eagles, 87-66 (12/09)

    With most of their team adjusting from a lengthy run in the football postseason, the John Hardin Bulldogs heavily relied on one of their youngsters who got hot in the first half.

    Sophomore guard Brandon Price scored 15 of his 22 points in the first half on 7-of-10 shooting and just missed a triple-double to lead the homestanding Bulldogs to an 87-66 win Wednesday night against visiting 17th District rival Fort Knox.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL: North Hardin opens with win against Fort Knox (12/05)

    With junior starting point guard Jermaine Ruttley hospitalized in Louisville and likely done for the season, the North Hardin Trojans plan on using a by-committee approach to handling the ball.

    Whether senior Trevino Coney keeps the job or the Trojans continue with a divide-and-conquer tactic, this much is certain – get the ball to Jordan Brangers.

    The sophomore shooting guard scored a career-high 30 points, mostly on assists from Coney, and the Trojans opened the season with a103-66 win Friday against visiting 17th District rival Fort Knox.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL: Central rallies past Nelson (12/01)

    Senior guard Matt Nichols recorded a 20-20 game as the Central Hardin Bruins were able to overcome a 12-point, second-quarter deficit to beat visiting 5th Region rival Nelson County, 67-57 on Tuesday.

    Nichols notched game highs with 24 points and 20 rebounds, while junior forward Andrew Kinney added 12 points, four rebounds and four steals.

    Sophomore forward Alex Crowder chipped in with 11 points, and junior guard Cannon Ray hit 3-of-6 3-pointers and finished with nine points and three assists.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL: Central beats Nelson (12/01)

    Seven players scored at least five points as the balanced Central Hardin Lady Bruins used a 3-point barrage to down the visiting Nelson County Lady Cardinals on Tuesday night, 78-65.

    Senior guard Alysse Bishop hit all three of her 3-point attempts as she scored a team-high 18 points for Central Hardin (1-0), which owned a 10-point halftime lead and buried 10-of-19 attempts from the arc.

    Junior forward Abbi Goedde was 2-of-2 from the arc and scored 17 points, while senior guard Jordan Daniel also hit two 3s and finished with 16 points.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL: E'town beats Lady Waves, 78-55 (11/30)

    For the first quarter Monday night, the Meade County Lady Waves had high hopes of knocking off former 17th District rival Elizabethtown.

    Freshman guard Raley Johnson hit 4-of-6 3-pointers to spark the homestanding Lady Waves to a one-point lead at the end of the period.

    Then, just like coach Josh Hurt predicted in the preseason, Meade County’s inexperience began to show. Elizabethtown outscored the Lady Waves, 25-15 in the second quarter and pulled away in the second half on its way to a 78-55 victory in both teams’ season opener.

  • Bulldog fans

    John Hardin students and fans filled Bulldog Stadium on a freezing Friday night to cheer on the Bulldogs as they played Christian County in the Class 5-A state semifinal. Heavy jackets and blankets were a neccisity as the temperatures dropped below 30-degrees with a slight breeze. As the Dawgs fell behind, the mood of the crowd turned blue also and not from just the weather. Some stayed to the bitter end while others kept cheering. Here are a few scenes from the event.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Catch Us If You Can (11/17)

    Gone are the days of Woody Hayes’ famed 3 yards and a cloud of dust. Gone are the days of seeing college powers such as Oklahoma and Texas running the wishbone. Teams lining up in the I-formation or the Veer seem to be on the way out as well.

    The Wing-T offense might be headed down that same path, but it’s not going out of style at John Hardin, which has used the offense since the program began. The Bulldogs spice it up with their mind-blowing moves, breath-taking cuts and awe-inspiring runs.

    In the first two rounds of the Class 5-A playoffs, the John Hardin Bulldogs haven’t had to leave the friendly confines of Bulldog Stadium.

    But that changes this Friday as the Bulldogs travel to play the Anderson County Bearcats at Hollie Warford Jr. Stadium in Lawrenceburg. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.

  • PREP BASEBALL: John Hardin's Creamer signs with EKU (11/15)

     

    When Cody Creamer stepped on the mound to pitch this summer, he could often look in the crowd and spot a coach from Eastern Kentucky University in attendance.

    It showed Creamer the Colonels’ coaching staff was interested in him and he rewarded them Friday in the John Hardin High School library by signing a national letter of intent to continue his baseball career with the Colonels.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: E'town falls to North Oldham (11/13)

    GOSHEN The Elizabethtown Panthers found a way to play themselves back into the game after falling behind early by two touchdowns on the road Friday night.

    Then they played themselves right back out of it.

    Elizabethtown led with less than 10 minutes remaining, but four turnovers and five unsportsmanlike conduct penalties in the fourth quarter alone doomed the Panthers in a 35-20 come-from-ahead loss to the host North Oldham Mustangs in the second round of the Class 3-A playoffs.
