  • GIRLS' SWEET 16: E'...

    BOWLING GREEN — If the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers need to know how to rebound from a loss in the championship game, all they need to do is look to the program’s past.

    In 1997, the Lady Panthers fell to Hazard, 54-38 in the championship game, but they came back with a vengeance the following season to win 29 games, including a 45-37 victory over Montgomery County to win the program’s only state title.

    BOWLING GREEN — Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd sat on a couch in the Western Kentucky volleyball locker room at E.A. Diddle Arena, going over the game which had just concluded in his mind.

    Mudd admitted most games come down to handful of plays, maybe as little as one or two.

    When asked which play decided Sunday’s championship of the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls’ Sweet 16, Mudd didn’t hesitate before answering the question.

  • GIRLS' SWEET 16 OPINION:...

    BOWLING GREEN – The script followed Elizabethtown’s first three victories at the Houches Industries/KHSAA Girls’ Sweet 16.

    Get off to a good start, build a double-digit lead in the first half and then sit back and watch the other team scramble to get back in it.

    The only problem was this time the Lady Panthers were the ones scrambling.

    BOWLING GREEN — While the snow wouldn’t fall outside for a few hours later, two things didn’t fall inside E.A. Diddle Arena on Sunday afternoon: Elizabethtown’s shots and the No. 1 team in the state.

    The top-ranked Louisville Butler Bearettes never trailed the second-ranked Lady Panthers, who could never get in an offensive rhythm as Butler won its fourth state title with a 49-38 victory in the championship game of the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls’ Sweet 16 in front of 4,284 fans at Western Kentucky.

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers came up just short in their bid for a second state championship Sunday afternoon.

    The Lady Panthers rallied from a 13-point first-half deficit to get within one on three different occasions in the second half, but the Louisville Butler Bearettes hung on for a 49-38 victory in the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls’ Sweet 16 state final in front of 4,824 at Western Kentucky’s E.A. Diddle Arena.

    Elizabethtown, which had won 17 straight games, finishes the season 32-5.

    BOWLING GREEN — State tournament games shouldn’t be easy, but the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers are making it look that way at Western Kentucky’s E.A. Diddle Arena.

    The Lady Panthers built a 37-24 halftime lead against Louisville Sacred Heart, which pulled within three in the third quarter, but they pulled away for a 76-61 victory Thursday night.

    BOWLING GREEN — And then there was one — No. 1.

    Having just put the final touches on their 71-56 win against the George Rogers Clark Lady Cardinals on Saturday night in the semifinals of the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls’ Sweet 16 at Western Kentucky’s E.A. Diddle Arena, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers turned their attention to today’s championship game meeting with top-ranked Louisville Butler.

  • GIRLS' SWEET 16: Defense...

    BOWLING GREEN — It has been said defense wins championships, and the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers took another step closer to a title because of their lockdown team defense.

    The Lady Panthers clamped down on Miss Basketball candidates Makenzie Cann and Eriel McKee, making life miserable for the Anderson County stars, and never allowed the Lady Bearcats to get into an offensive rhythm en route to a 58-37 win Friday night in the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls’ Sweet 16 at Western Kentucky’s E.A. Diddle Arena.

  • PREP BASEBALL/SOFTBALL ROUNDUP:...
