  • KHSAA BOYS' SOCCER STATE...

    The dream became a reality Tuesday night for the North Hardin Trojans.

    Senior Devin Sowells scored again, junior Taylor Yates had two points, senior Steve Packer notched two assists off long throw-ins and senior Elijah Linscott buried visiting Louisville Fern Creek with a pair of quick-fire insurance goals late as the 5th Region Tournament champion Trojans pulled away from the 6th Region champion Tigers, 4-1 in the opening round of the state tournament at Troy Wade Field.

  • KHSAA BOYS' SOCCER STATE...

    When the North Hardin Trojans play at Troy Wade Field at 7 tonight for the last time this year, standout senior midfielder Elijah Linscott expects to run the gamut of emotions.

    Nervousness, excitement, eagerness – lump ‘em all in there.

  • SPORTS: E'town Sports Park...

    Elizabethtown Sports Park’s preliminary 2013 schedule has been released.

    It’s going to be in full swing in its first full season next year, with more than 40 events slated from the spring through the early fall.

    The Elizabethtown Tourism and Convention Bureau released the schedule Friday, which includes 42 events that run from early March through September.

    Janna Clark, the ETCB sports and sales director, said in a press release the events represent more than 2,000 sports teams, which translates into at least 50,000 visitors.

  • KHSAA GIRLS' SOCCER STATE...

    Lexy Hazle’s consecutive points streak finally ended. So did the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ state tournament quarterfinals drought.

    Consider it a tradeoff.

    After being involved in all four of her team’s goals in its 5th Region Tournament final win last week, the standout senior striker was involved in the Lady Panthers’ first four goals Monday night as Elizabethtown overwhelmed the 6th Region champion Louisville Mercy Jaguars, 5-1 in the first round of the state tournament at Doug Smith Memorial Stadium.

  • MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL:...

    Playing a collegiate basketball game for the first time in 31 years, the Elizabethtown Community & Technical College Barons probably should have expected to have a little rust Sunday afternoon on the road against the Georgetown College Tigers’ junior varsity squad.

    And the Barons most certainly were rusty, turning over the ball 20 times and missing 15 of 21 free throws on the night.

    After wasting a 20-point first-half lead against the hard-charging Barons, the Tigers made 13 free throws in the final 10 minutes to hold on for a 74-69 win.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER STATE...

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers have a love-hate relationship with Doug Smith Memorial Stadium, their home field.

    The love playing on it and they hate losing on it.

    And they’ve had some bad losses there in the last two years, falling 8-1 to Scott County this year in their last regular-season home game and losing 2-0 to Central Hardin in last year’s 5th Region Girls’ Soccer Tournament final.

  • PREP FOOTBALL OPINION: Monday...

    STOCK UP

    The Meade County Green Wave always seem to make these late-season runs and this is proof of that. After starting the season 2-4, the Green Wave have reeled off three consecutive victories in impressive fashion. They’ve done it with a power ground game and a stingy defense. They’ve rushed for nearly 1,000 yards – 984 to be exact – and given up just five touchdowns in those three wins.

  • MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL:...

    Not often in college basketball does a game feature coaches on both benches facing off against their alma maters, but such is the case at 3 p.m. today as the Elizabeth-town Community & Technical College Ba-rons  visit the Georgetown College Tigers’ junior varsity.
    ECTC assistant coach Roman Ritchey played for Georgetown following his days playing for the LaRue County Hawks.

  • MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL:...

    Dr. Dale Buckles said the rest of the Kentucky’s men’s college basketball programs welcomed the state’s newest program – well, sort of – with open arms.
    Buckles, Elizabethtown Com-munity & Technical College’s chief student affairs officers and a former coach of both Barons men’s and women’s teams, said it wasn’t that difficult to piece together the Barons’ 21-game schedule for this winter.

  • MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL:...

    Mike Brady remembers the itchy, short uniforms. The long road trips. The overwhelming opponents.
    But playing for the Elizabethtown Community College Barons from 1979-81 – the men’s basketball program’s final two seasons – still gave the former Meade County High School star and Hardin County resident plenty of reasons to make him look back and smile.
