  • PREP WRESTLING: Central, LaRue,...

    Central Hardin, LaRue County and Meade County are heading to the KWCA State Duals.

    All three teams qualified Saturday for the prestigious event this month in Louisville.

    Meade County went 3-0, topping Central Hardin, 44-22 in the final during the Section 1 (large school) Duals at Graves County. The Green Wave also beat Daviess County, 72-9 and Graves County, 78-6.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL: Up...

    The LaRue County Hawks nearly experienced déjà vu Friday night at home against 18th District rival Hart County.

    After getting out to a huge lead and holding on for a four-point road victory in December against the Raiders, the Hawks had it happen again. This time, they watched a pair of 17-point leads whittle down to four before emerging with a 46-38 win.

    “Can’t you just put ‘Hawks win’ and go on?” sighed veteran LaRue County coach Paul Childress. “Do you really have to write anything about this one?”

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    With one half of the LaRue County Lady Hawks’ dynamic duo sidelined with an injury, the tandem’s other half took over at point guard and took over the game Friday night against visiting 18th District rival Hart County.

    Junior Ivy Brown had game highs in points (33), rebounds (eight), steals (six), assists (four) and blocks (two), matching LaRue County senior center Alisha Durbin as the Alexis Brewer-less Lady Hawks rolled past the Lady Raiders, 66-25.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins finally ended their 13-game losing streak and recorded their first 17th District win.

    Their two little sparkplug guards, eighth-grader Mariah Helton and freshman Jasmine Zaehringer, provided them with a shot of life off the bench.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    In his first varsity start, Dillon Glenn had a career night Friday.

    The Central Hardin junior forward’s energetic performance gave coach J.C. Wright a reason to keep him in the starting lineup.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd doesn’t mind turning to his bench because he understands most night, one of his substitutes – if not all – is going to provide a spark.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers have owned the 17th District for some time. How long? Only one North Hardin Lady Trojan has ever been a part of a win over Elizabethtown.

    The Lady Panthers, who have won seven straight district championships, have beaten North Hardin 10 consecutive times since the Lady Trojans’ 57-52 victory Jan 16, 2009. Elizabethtown hosts North Hardin at 7:30 tonight at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium.

    North Hardin coach Chris Corder said clearing a mental hurdle against Elizabethtown would be huge for the Lady Trojans.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    Star senior Beth Rates had 31 points as the homestanding Hancock County Lady Hornets avenged an earlier loss to 11th District rival Meade County with a 65-63 win in double overtime Thursday night.

    Sophomore forward Morgan Turner led Meade County (10-7, 3-1 district) with 25 points and 12 rebounds, while senior center Maya Luney also had a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

    Sophomore guard Addi Lynch chipped in with eight points and six assists for the Lady Waves, who led 21-9 after the first quarter.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Duals aren'...

    Creatures of habit typically aren’t big fans of change.

    Just ask longtime Central Hardin coach Russ Pike and veteran LaRue County coach Gary Canter.

    One of the state’s premier events – the State Duals – has undergone a drastic change this season.

    The Kentucky Wrestling Coaches’ Association voted to split the event into two divisions – big school and small school – and separate them into six sectionals with up to 10 teams in each.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Combs is back in...

    When Shawn Thompson was told in December he wouldn’t be allowed to return as coach of the Fort Knox football team next season, athletic director Jackie Prather said the administration wanted to go in a different direction.

    The school found a new direction with an old coach.

    Fort Knox officially introduced Brandon Combs, who coached for three years before resigning following the 2010 season, as its next coach Thursday afternoon.
