    OWENSBORO — The Central Hardin High School volleyball team rebounded from one of the Lady Bruins’ worst performances at the Apollo Summer Slamdown with one of their best.

    After a 2-3 showing last year in one of western Kentucky’s top opening-weekend tournaments, the unranked and upstart Lady Bruins went 7-0 Friday and Saturday to win the 25-team tournament that featured two ranked teams in the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches’ Association preseason top 25 poll.

    The John Hardin Lady Bulldogs have been on the defensive the last couple of years, but coach Brittany Carter is hoping to see her team be on the offensive this season.

    The Lady Bulldogs, who went 8-8-3 last season, scored only 36 goals last season, averaging less than two goals a game.

    After graduating 13 players, Meade County girls’ soccer coach Dan Shook understands why some coaches in the 10th District might not expect much out of the Lady Waves this season.

    Shook, however, is not one of those coaches.

    “Thirteen seniors are gone. There was a concern about what kind of vacuum that would leave, but a lot of these girls have stepped up and filled spots,” Shook said. “So far, I’ve seen a lot of good things from the girls; good, positive work ethics.”

    Josh Hardin was ready to give up coaching soccer after the North Hardin Christian Falcons went 3-6 last season in the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association.

    Hardin was content with stepping away from the team he’d coached for six seasons – three as a head coach – and the sport he grew up playing.

    Getting to the state tournament recently hasn’t been an issue for area high school soccer programs. It’s sticking around that’s a problem.

    The Elizabethtown and John Hardin boys have combined for three consecutive appearances at State, while the Elizabethtown and Central Hardin girls have combined for 10 straight berths to State since 2000.

    But all of those appearances haven’t equated to much success as area teams are 2-11 in the first round and 0-2 in the quarterfinals since 2000.

    North Hardin boys’ soccer coach Jim Stone came into the preseason with worries about how the team would play without Tyler Blankenship, who scored 60 percent of the team’s goals in his senior season.

    It didn’t take long for the Trojans to put their coach’s mind at ease.
