  • GIRLS' PREP TRACK: Russell...

    A familiar face is back to help lead the North Hardin Lady Trojans to yet another Class 3-A, Region 2 championship.

    John Russell returns after a year away from coaching track and field as the Lady Trojans gear up for a run at their third straight region championship. Russell, who stepped down after the 2009 season, took a year off to spend more time with his wife, Michelle, and their two children, Gabe and Gracie Ann.

  • BOYS' PREP TRACK: North,...

    Longtime coach James Webb is primed and ready to get the North Hardin Trojans back to the top a year after what he called was a disappointing sixth-place finish at the KHSAA Class 3-A State Track & Field Champion-ships.

    Webb had high expectations after the Trojans won the Mason Dixon Games, which has long been considered the state championships of the indoor season, last March.

    But the Trojans faltered at State last season, when they were expected to contend with perennial power Louisville Male for the state title.

  • PREP TRACK: Another gold rush...

    This one’s for the girls.

    After sharing the track and field spotlight with the likes of former Fort Knox star Courtney Edwards and former John Hardin standout Brandon Bagley, the spotlight belongs to the girls this season. In two seasons, the dynamic duo won 12 gold medals between them before taking their talents to LSU and the University of Kentucky, respectively. Edwards is a walk-on, while Bagley is a scholarship athlete.

  • PREP BASEBALL/SOFTBALL ROUNDUP:...

    Senior Ryan Carek was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to lift the homestanding John Hardin Bulldogs to a 6-5 win over Glasgow on Monday in both teams’ season openers.

    Sophomore Garrett Ray scored the winning run.

    Senior Jacob Skaff got the win in relief of senior Cody Creamer, who struck out nine in five innings.

    Creamer singled twice and drove in a run, while junior Claudio Deaza had two singles and two RBIs.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Lady Eagles...

    After back-to-back disappointing seasons, the Fort Knox Lady Eagles could be flying a little higher this season.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Knox takes step...

    After recording one of its most successful seasons in a decade, Fort Knox’s baseball program is back in the hole again.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Meade County...

    Meade County lost its top offensive weapon. But Mike Harreld thinks the Lady Waves still have enough firepower to bring home another 11th District Tournament title and contend for a 3rd Region Tournament championship.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: E'town could...

    Matt Mardis fully understood that the combination of a first-year coach (himself), a new pitcher (sophomore Sidney Herzog) and a rather inexperienced supporting cast was going to lead to a long learning year as he took over the Elizabethtown softball program.

    “Last year we struggled on the mound but we were inexperienced all the way around,” said Mardis, who went 5-25 last year.

    Unlike last year, the Lady Panthers don’t lack pitching experience this season.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: North gets a shot...

    After many years of having plenty of older players at his beck and call, veteran North Hardin softball coach Donnie Baker is kind of enjoying the Trojans’ quite evident youthful enthusiasm this season.

    “When you graduate that many seniors in a row, eight last year and eight the previous year, you’re going to be young,” Baker said. “And oh, my god, is this my youngest team. By far. By so far.”
