  • PREP TENNIS: Fiepke's...

    The right foot of Natalie Fiepke may be the greatest barrier to the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers winning their 11th straight Lincoln Heritage Conference Tennis Tournament title.

    The senior, who is the defending region champion and seeded second in the tournament, has been battling a sore Achilles the past few weeks and was in a walking boot Monday.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Area teams...

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association approved a draft of the new football alignment at the Board of Control meeting Tuesday and all seven schools will be affected in some form or fashion.

    The biggest changes are two schools – John Hardin and Fort Knox – are moving down a class, while North Hardin will be moving up.

  • PREP BASKETBALL OPINION: North...

    When North Hardin removed the interim tag from boys’ basketball coach Mike Cofer, it could have been considered the easy thing to do.

    Cofer was already a teacher at North Hardin and it would save the trouble of finding a coach who also needed a teaching job.

    While that might be true, it was the right thing to do.

  • BOYS' PREP LACROSSE:...

    When he put together the Elizabethtown Marksmen Lacrosse Club’s inaugural schedule, boys’ coach/founder Virgil Lyon didn’t want his team to get an inflated self worth.

    Facing only fledgling and struggling programs might have helped the win-loss record, but wouldn’t have been the best for seeing where the club stands overall.

  • PREP ROUNDUP: Lady Panthers...

    Trailing 6-3 and down to their final out at Hart County, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers staged a furious rally to win their third straight game.

    Freshmen Callie Sondergard and Sarah Beth Hundley each had RBI singles and the Lady Panthers scored on an error and a wild pitch en route to six runs in the seventh inning and rally for a 9-7 win over the Lady Raiders on Monday.

    Sophomore Carly Patterson scored on a wild pitch, while sophomore Kiki Seth and senior Brianna Taylor also scored for the Lady Panthers (5-6).

  • TENNIS: Elizabethtown resident...

    One trip to Egypt just wasn’t enough for Bob Love.

    The Elizabethtown-based tennis instructor is going back to teach Egyptian coaches and instructors for the Egyptian Tennis Federation from April 24 to April 30 in New Cairo City.

    “I realize I have a lot to offer and I want to offer it,” he said. “I’m internally driven to help.”

    From what he is told, Love said it’s the first time an instructor will be going to Egypt to hold workshops for other coaches.

  • BOYS' PREP HOOPS: Bevars to...

    After being honored around the area during this past basketball season following his retirement last fall, former North Hardin basketball coach Ron Bevars is being recognized nationally.

    Bevars will be inducted into the National High School Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame in June at Snow King Resort in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

    Selection isn’t limited to only basketball.

  • BOYS' PREP HOOPS: Interim...

    Mike Cofer grew up competing against the North Hardin boys’ basketball program and then coaching against it, so he understands the rich tradition and commitment to winning it has.

    Now, Cofer is in charge of leading the program in its next phase. North Hardin removed his interim label, making him its head coach Friday afternoon.

    Cofer was named interim coach after legendary coach Ron Bevars stepped down Oct. 4. Cofer had been an assistant at North Hardin under Bevars for two years.
