    Less than 24 hours removed from a stunning loss to John Hardin, the host North Hardin Lady Trojans took out their frustration on Fort Knox.

    When she moved to Fort Knox as a seventh-grader, Kiara Austin thought she had little aspirations of becoming a Division I athlete.

    Five years later, however, that’s exactly what Austin is.

    Austin signed a national letter of intent Friday afternoon in the Fort Knox High School library to run track at Murray State University.

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks headed south in the second half, and with it, so did their hopes of getting the 18th District Tournament’s top seed.

    The Lady Hawks used a strong second quarter to tie the score at halftime, but they made only five field goals in the final 16 minutes as they fell to the visiting Green County Lady Dragons, 59-46 on Friday night.

    The LaRue County Hawks snapped out of a recent offensive funk by turning up their defensive pressure.

    The Hawks forced 23 turnovers which led to easy baskets to spark them to a convincing 62-42 victory over the visiting Green County Dragons in an 18th District game Friday night.

    “We picked up our intensity on defense,” said senior guard Kyle Meredith, who had 13 points and five rebounds. “One guy picked it up and then the next guy picks it up. It spreads to the whole team and everyone feeds off it.”

    Green County’s Micah Jones has been a thorn in the side of LaRue County for years, and the senior guard added some more frustration in her final appearance at LaRue County.

    With the No. 1 seed for the 18th District Tournament on the line, Jones poured in 26 points to go along with 10 rebounds and seven assists as the Lady Dragons pulled away in the second half for a 59-46 victory.

    Jones, a Western Kentucky signee, owns an 11-1 record against the Lady Hawks. She missed all of last year with an injury when LaRue County won both meetings.

    Michelle Montgomery and the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs grew tired of hearing how they had never beaten the North Hardin Lady Trojans.

    After Friday night, that streak is ancient history.

    Montgomery, junior Desireah Mills and sophomore Nawdya Fletcher combined to hit 5-of-8 free throws in the final 25.2 seconds and host John Hardin knocked off North Hardin, 55-51 in a 17th District game at the Dawg Pound.

    The easy part, albeit not a cheap one, for Dr. Strat Warden on Friday was acquiring a piece of area history.

    The more difficult part for the retired Elizabethtown physician is deciding what to do with it.

    In what he deemed a $2,500 donation, Warden became the new and proud owner of the big “E” from half court of the old gym floor from T.K. Stone Middle School. Elizabethtown High School’s basketball teams played on the floor from 1956-71 before moving to their current location at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium at the high school.
