  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade County...

    Staring at a three-point deficit in the final 3 minutes and with 87 yards between his team and the end zone, Meade County senior quarterback Jake Wilson wasn’t fazed.

    A 22-yard field goal from junior kicker Aaron Miles gave the Louisville Butler Bears a 24-21 lead with 2:42 remaining Friday night at Hamilton Field in the second round of the Class 6-A state playoffs. But Wilson knew his team had a chance.

  • GIRLS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    LEXINGTON A nagging hip injury wasn’t going to prevent Elizabethtown junior Hannah Godfrey from sharing Saturday with one of her young teammates.

    Godfrey tore a muscle in her right hip while conditioning for swimming season a few weeks ago, potentially putting her season – and in turn, her team’s year – in jeopardy.

    But Godfrey fought through the pain and was pushed by seventh-grade teammate Savannah Kingery during Saturday’s KHSAA State Cross Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park.

  • BOYS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    After his performance Saturday, Sandidge returned home happy yet wanting even more. The LaRue County junior finished fifth in the Class 2-A race, turning in the area’s top individual placing for either gender.

    Sandidge, who was ranked second entering Saturday, covered the 3.1-mile course in 17 minutes, 10.48 seconds.

    Jake Wilson’s Hail Mary wasn’t answered.

    With 5 seconds remaining against Louisville Butler in the second round of the Class 6-A playoffs, the Meade County senior quarterback rolled to his left before lofting a pass to junior Zeb Wilson in the end zone.

    But it bounced off Zeb Wilson’s hands and hit the turf, giving the Bears a 24-21 win in a wild, back-and-forth tilt at Hamilton Field.
