  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade's...

    Martel McCullough is fired up.

    During Wednesday’s practice at Hamilton Field, the Meade County senior had a couple of big hits on some of his teammates.

    McCullough said the Green Wave will need that intensity at 7:30 tonight when they take on the Louisville Southern Trojans in the first round of the Class 6-A playoffs.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Canter, Hawks...

    As a water boy for the LaRue County Hawks as a youngster, Caleb Canter remembers that sinking feeling when the team’s season came to an end at the expense of the Corbin Redhounds in the playoffs.

    From 2000-04, the Hawks and Redhounds had a fierce rivalry in the old Class 2-A. Corbin won four of those games, including a 21-0 win in 2002 that Hawk fans still haven’t forgotten.

    Neither has Canter. Now a senior, Canter is pumped for tonight’s 7:30 game with the Redhounds in the first round of the Class 3-A playoffs.


    LEXINGTON As well as Elizabethtown has played down the stretch, the Lady Panthers finally ran into a team Wednesday night which was playing better.

    Covington Notre Dame reserve sophomore midfielder Mandy Arnzen continued her postseason offensive barrage by scoring on a header in the final 4 minutes to lift the top-ranked Pandas over the 10th-ranked Lady Panthers, 1-0 in the opening semifinal of the KHSAA Girls’ Soccer State Tournament at Paul Dunbar High School’s Jon R. Akers Stadium.


    Four area high school soccer officials have parlayed a solid performance Saturday into working an even bigger game Thursday night.

    Jonathan Bryan of Elizabethtown, Sean C. Hall of Cecilia, Thomas (Jeff) Hall of Elizabethtown and Athanasios (T) Mastoroudis of Sonora – who are all veteran members of the Lincoln Trail Soccer Officials Association – have been chosen to officiate Thursday’s 8 p.m. semifinal between the Lexington Paul Dunbar Bulldogs and the Henderson County Colonels as part of the KHSAA Boys’ Soccer State Tournament final four at Dunbar.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins are...

    Senior offensive lineman Wesley Miller doesn’t think the Central Hardin Bruins are done.

    Don’t call them toast just yet.


    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers could be many things tonight.

    Cold. Bus lagged. Sick. Beaten up.

    But one thing they insist they won’t be is afraid.

    Heading into tonight’s showdown at 6 with the top-ranked defending state champion Covington Notre Dame Pandas (24-2-1) in the opening semifinal of the KHSAA Girls’ Soccer State Tournament final four at Lexington Paul Dunbar High School, the 5th Region Tournament champion Lady Panthers (17-5-2) are relatively at ease.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    Having to ride on a bus for more than three hours to take on a district champion won’t be the easiest task at 7:30 p.m. Friday for the Elizabethtown Panthers.

    But what the visiting Panthers (1-9) actually have in their favor when they take on the Bell County Bobcats (8-2) in the first round of the Class 3-A state playoffs is pretty simple: Overconfidence.


    Because they play on a team with such a highly regarded player in Miss Soccer candidate Lexy Hazle, senior left wing Emily Richardson and sophomore right wing Dani Wilson sometimes get ignored by the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ opponents.

    And when that happens, the duo tends to make teams pay.






    CAMPBELLSVILLE — Results from Monday’s dual at Phillips Lanes (x-denotes earned team point; in baker, a team has five bowlers rotate, each bowling two frames; 1-6, 2-7, 3-8, 4-9, 5-10):

    While Burnie Knight was focused on officiating several KHSAA State Volleyball Tournament matches Friday and Saturday, one of his granddaughters, 4-year-old Chloe, was more entertained with his attire.
