  • 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.

  • GIRLS' SWEET 16: Lady...

    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.

  • GIRLS' SWEET 16: Meade...

    BOWLING GREEN – A 3-pointer at the buzzer was a dagger that pierced the hearts of the Meade County Lady Waves.

    Anderson County senior Makenzie Cann nailed a 3-pointer to end the first quarter to give the Lady Bearcats a 13-12 lead. The momentum gained by Cann’s shot seemed to carry over to the second quarter as the Lady Bearcats opened with back-to-back 3s to open up a seven-point lead.

  • GIRLS' SWEET 16: All five...

    BOWLING GREEN — Not many days in a teenager’s life can top what Thursday was for Erin Boley.

    The Elizabethtown sophomore forward posted a double-double and junior forward Reauna Cleaver scored a game-high 20 points as the Lady Panthers pulled away from Louisville Sacred Heart, 76-61 in the first round of the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls’ Sweet 16 at E.A. Diddle Arena.

  • GIRLS' SWEET 16 TOURNAMENT...

    Having played shooting guard all through middle school, Addi Lynch was a bit surprised when Meade County coach Josh Hurt wanted the ball in her hands more as a freshman.

    Hurt figured the laidback Lynch could be a calming presence for the Lady Waves, so he moved her to the point and shifted Kelsey Sutton to shooting guard.

  • GIRLS' SWEET 16: Meade...

    Anderson County coach Tony Kays admittedly doesn’t know much about the Meade County Lady Waves, his team’s first-round opponent in the Girls’ Sweet 16, but he knows enough to realize Meade County is capable of playing with anyone.

    All Kays needs to do is look at the Lady Waves’ schedule and pinpoint two games: a 65-54 loss to No. 1 Louisville Butler on Feb. 11 and Sunday’s 66-53 win over Owensboro Catholic in the 3rd Region Tournament championship.
