  • GIRLS' SWEET 16: State...

    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:...

    The North Hardin Trojans picked up two wins over the weekend to start the regular season.

    North Hardin routed Bullitt Central, 14-3 on Saturday and held off Louisville DuPont Manual, 8-7 on Friday.

    n North Hardin (2-0) erupted for 13 runs in the third inning, turning a one-run deficit into a 12-run advantage.

    Senior Graham Mathews went 3-for-4 with two doubles, five RBIs and two runs, while sophomore A.J. Morales had two doubles, two RBIs and a run. Sophomore Justin Davis added two singles and three runs.

    BOWLING GREEN — Another highly touted opponent, another rout for Elizabethtown after another well-balanced night for the Lady Panthers’ starters.

    A game after all five starters scored in double digits in the Lady Panthers’ romp past Louisville Sacred Heart, six Lady Panthers scored at least six points as they cruised past the Anderson County Lady Bearcats, 58-37 in the final quarterfinal Friday night in the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls’ Sweet 16 at Western Kentucky’s E.A. Diddle Arena.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Prior to stepping on the court Thursday night for her Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ game against Louisville Sacred Heart in the first round of the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls’ Sweet 16 Basketball Tournament at Western Kentucky University’s E.A. Diddle Arena, sophomore forward Erin Boley learned she was the recipient of a major award.

    Gatorade/USA Today announced Boley as its 2013-14 Gatorade Kentucky Girls’ Basketball Player of the Year.

  • GIRLS' SWEET 16 OPINION:...

    BOWLING GREEN – If one was wondering how the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers would act on the grandest stage – the Houchens Industries Girls’ Sweet 16 – in Kentucky high school basketball, they weren’t alone.

    Even Coach Tim Mudd admitted it was a concern.

    The Lady Panthers provided an emphatic answer, using a 15-0 first-quarter run to build a double-digit lead and they never looked back en route to a dominating 76-61 victory over Louisville Sacred Heart on Thursday evening at Western Kentucky’s E.A. Diddle Arena.

  • GIRLS' SWEET 16 NOTEBOOK: E...

    BOWLING GREEN — Elizabethtown’s penchant for playing many defenses, and playing them well, is not exactly a secret in the coaching circles.

    Still, Lady Panthers coach Tim Mudd said it was hard for opposing offenses to try to simulate his team in practice.
