  • GIRLS' 3RD REGION...

    OWENSBOROMeade County senior Maya Luney can’t help but think her career would still be going if the Lady Waves had just a little more time Monday night in the Girls’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament championship game.

    After falling behind by 16 in the third quarter against Owensboro Catholic, the Lady Waves rallied and cut their deficit to one with just over 2 minutes remaining at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

    But time ran out on Meade County.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    Forget about red because Travis Wootton’s blood runs LaRue County blue and white.

    He coaches at the school where he starred in high school in the late 1980s and early ‘90s and at the school where his older sister, Allison, led the Lady Hawks – who he now coaches – to new heights and their last previous win against 5th Region powerhouse Elizabethtown prior to this season.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    During practice Monday afternoon before the biggest game of their high-school careers, the LaRue County Lady Hawks were foot-loose and fancy-free.

  • GIRLS' 3RD REGION...

    The last time Meade County faced Owensboro Catholic, a future Duke University signee single handedly led the Lady Aces past the Lady Waves in the Girls’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament.

    Then a sophomore, Becca Greenwell torched Meade County for 41 points, 18 rebounds and seven 3-pointers as Owensboro Catholic knocked the Lady Waves out of the postseason in the 2011 quarterfinals.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    MUNFORDVILLE — Is John Hardin becoming the new North Hardin on the hardwood? It certainly appears that way.

    The Trojans dominated the 5th Region for a number of years. They have 12 region championship trophies to prove it. They were the envy of most schools in the region. Their dominance was never more evident than winning the title five times in a span of six years from 1998-2003.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    GREENSBURG The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers didn’t feel pressure to beat top-ranked Marion County on Sunday evening. What the Lady Panthers did feel, however, was the vaunted defense of the undefeated Lady Knights once the three-time defending 5th Region champions turned up the heat.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    GREENSBURG — In a journey to their first appearance in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament’s championship game, Ivy Brown and the LaRue County Lady Hawks must have had Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin” playing on a continuous loop on their Iphones, Ipods and whatever else teenage girls listen to music on these days.

  • GIRLS 3RD REGION BASKETBALL...

    OWENSBORO — Maya Luney couldn’t really believe what she was seeing.

    The Ohio County Lady Eagles had whittled Meade County’s 15-point lead to three with 1:17 remaining Saturday, and Luney’s career flashed before her eyes.

    “It’s an awful feeling when you feel like it’s slipping away,” the senior center said. “That’s not to be negative or anything like that. When you feel it slipping away, you just don’t know what to do.”

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks understand they’re on the cusp of history. They also understand that looking forward to the future could cause them problems in the present.

    That’s why the 18th District Tournament champions are solely focused on the task at hand today, a 2 p.m. date with the 19th District champion Nelson County Lady Cardinals in the opening semifinal of the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament at Green County High School in Greensburg.
