  • PREP TRACK & FIELD: North...

    The general consensus is that everyone is once again chasing both North Hardin teams in the Class 3-A, Region 2 meet.

    The teams are going for their third straight region crowns at 10 a.m. Saturday, but Lady Trojans coach John Russell thinks his team is part of the pack that will be chasing Bowling Green at the Jeter-McKinney Track Complex.
