  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    After Monday night, it’s going to be a lot easier for LaRue County fans to remember the last time their Lady Hawks beat the vaunted Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.

    Junior guard Ivy Brown found sophomore guard Alexis Brewer for a deep 3-pointer to give LaRue County the lead for good with 5:42 left in the game as the homestanding Lady Hawks stunned the sixth-ranked Lady Panthers, 49-39.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Mark Brown...

    Mark Brown has been considering retirement for several years, but after nearly four decades in football, he finally decided the time was right.

    Brown built John Hardin into a perennial power after previous coaching stops at Nelson County and Marion County. He spent 36 years coaching, the last 32 as a head coach.

    “It’s been a good run,” Brown said. “I’ve enjoyed every moment of it.

  • PREP SWIMMING: Fort Knox's...

    Monica and Miriam Smith didn’t realize how serious swimming was until they arrived at Fort Knox.

    The sisters had spent the past four years in Seoul, swimming on a developmental team which had around 80 swimmers and a more laid-back atmosphere.

    Then, second-year coach Jonas Sosa showed them what it was like to really work. They went from practicing three days a week and swimming around 1,000 yards a day in Seoul to going five days a week and 4,000 yards a day – not including meets – at Fort Knox.

  • PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP:...

    Up four early in the second half, the Perry County Central Commodores pulled away in the final 15 minutes for a 68-46 win over the Elizabethtown Panthers on Friday night in the consolation bracket semifinals of the Toyota Classic at Scott County.

  • PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP:...

    Without two injured senior starters – center Tyler McCullough (back and shoulder) and guard Alex Crowder (ankle) – the Central Hardin Bruins struggled offensively Saturday, falling to host Marshall County in the Gunner’s Magic Train Classic, 47-35.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Central's...

    When freshman Dalton Parr lost his spot in Central Hardin’s starting lineup, he didn’t mope about it.

    It just made him work that much more to earn his place – and he made a strong case to be considered for a starting spot Saturday.

    Parr defeated Louisville St. Xavier’s Mitchell Esterle, 17-14 to win the 170-pound title at the North Hardin Trojan Invitational Tournament at Ron Bevars Gymnasium.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL: John...

    John Hardin has two stars in seniors Brandon Price and Daveon Greene, but the high-scoring Bulldogs are far from a two-man show.

    Friday night, they made that point very clear to the North Hardin Trojans.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Remove the first 10 minutes Friday night and the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs gave the seven-time defending 17th District Tournament champion Elizabethtown Lady Panthers everything they wanted at the Dawg Pound in Radcliff.

    But in that first 600 seconds, Reauna Cleaver and the Lady Panthers – again – had landed the equivalent of a first-round knockout.
