    B.J. Carman isn’t one to boast about his achievements for the LaRue County Hawks.

    The 182-pound senior knows there’s a fine line between confidence and cockiness, and he doesn’t want to cross it.

    Instead, he’ll let his on-the-mat work speak for itself. Entering this weekend’s KHSAA State Wrestling Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Alltech Arena, Carman is 53-1 and one of the favorites to win a state title.

    Thirteen was unlucky on the road Tuesday for the Elizabethtown Panthers.

    The Panthers were held to just 13 points in the second half as the host Louisville Trinity Shamrocks extended their winning streak to 13 games as the state’s top-ranked team pulled away, 64-37.

    Trinity, the defending state tournament champion, has won 15-of-17. Elizabethtown has lost 4-of-5.

    Elizabethtown (14-12) trailed by one early in the second quarter and by 10 early in the third before Trinity (24-4) began to pull away.

    The John Hardin Bulldogs were not in a celebratory mood despite rolling to their 13th consecutive victory Tuesday night.

    John Hardin senior point guard Brandon Price and LaRue County senior point guard Kelton Ford are good friends off the court, and the two will have plenty to talk about when they get together next time.

    The conversation might turn to how they were selected the Co-Player of the Year by the 5th Region Coaches Association. Price and Ford are two of only three players to receive all possible 16 votes.

  • FOOTBALL: Elam receives offer...

    A long-time dream is beginning to become reality for John Hardin junior defensive tackle Matt Elam.

    Elam has dreamt of playing college football since he began playing the game and that is beginning to look like a definite possibility after this past weekend.

    The 6-foot-5, 350-pound Elam attended the University of Kentucky’s junior day Saturday, when he attended the Wildcats’ game against Auburn. Kentucky assistant coach Neal Brown offered Elam a scholarship at the game.
