    The LaRue County Hawks were quite dandy on defense last year, which propelled them to a dynamite season.

    Behind statistically the best defense in the 13-team region – the Hawks allowed less than 0.85 goals per game – LaRue County notched its first postseason win before finishing 11-4-4 with a loss to top-25 Bardstown Bethlehem in the 9th District Tournament semifinals.

    Meade County lost a number of key pieces from last year’s team, but head coach Matt Pollock thinks the Green Wave may be able to reload, rather than rebuild.

    Though they are not a veteran team, the Green Wave shouldn’t have any problems with maturity or leadership this season as 10 of their 22 varsity members are seniors. That could come in handy as the team is looking to make up for lost time following a summer where practices were limited by the extreme heat.

    Second-year Fort Knox girls’ soccer coach Liz Barnes knows it’s been a while since the Lady Eagles have won a 10th District game.

    Since picking up a 1-0 win over North Hardin on Sept. 9, 2002, the Lady Eagles are 0-53-1 against district competition. But with a solid mix of new and returning players, Barnes thinks her team can turn things around.

    An improved defense which allowed 61 goals last season is a big reason Barnes is optimistic the Lady Eagles will have a better season.

    It was a long two days for the Central Hardin Lady Bruins and coach Wendy Boeglen, but the trip to Owensboro was well worth it.

    The Lady Bruins went 7-0 to win the two-day, 25-team Apollo Summer Slam on Friday and Saturday.

    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins have made six consecutive 5th Region Tournament appearances, but they are still searching for their first region title since 2000.

    The Lady Bruins reached the region final last season, falling 1-0 to Elizabethtown. It was the third time in the last six years they’ve lost to Elizabethtown in the region championship.

    Being short on players made last year a long season for the LaRue County Lady Hawks.

    Struggling with depth, the Lady Hawks finished 1-11-1, didn’t score a goal after Sept. 5 and were beaten 11-0 in one half by Nelson County in the 9th District Tournament quarterfinals.

    More than once last year, the Lady Hawks didn’t have enough players to go 11-on-11.

    The last several days have been nerve wracking for Michaela Jacobs. Actually, make that months.

    Jacobs sent in paperwork to the Department of Defense Education Activity to get on Fort Knox’s substitute teacher list in order to coach the boys’ soccer team three months ago.

    By NATHANIEL BRYAN nbryan@thenewsenterprise.com Tiffany Filburn returned to John Hardin on Tuesday to spoil Brian Walters’ return to volleyball. A towering senior middle hitter, Filburn missed both of Meade County’s meetings last year with John Hardin, which went 1-0-1 against the Lady Waves in Filburn’s absence. She showed the Lady Bulldogs what they dod
