  • PREP WRESTLING: Trojan...

    North Hardin wrestling coach Keith Smith has long believed the Trojan Invitational Tournament is one of the best late-season tournaments offered across the state.

    With 17 teams joining Smith’s Trojans, Saturday’s tournament at Ron Bevars Gymnasium should be no different. Wrestling will start at 10 a.m. Finals are slated to start at 8 p.m.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Crittenden takes...

    When Danny Crittenden found out his family was moving to Radcliff while he was still in middle school, Crittenden had aspirations of playing for Adam Lindsey’s Bluegrass Middle School football team.

    Crittenden had no idea that six years later, he’d be walking down a different path with Lindsey.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    From porous defense on the perimeter to downright bad ball-handling, the homestanding North Hardin Trojans bent several times Tuesday night.

    But the short and spunky Meade County Green Wave didn’t have enough to make sophomore Jordan Brangers and the rest of the Trojans break.

    Brangers scored 18 of his game-high 26 points after halftime to help the Trojans overcome a nine-point deficit with a little more than 12 minutes left, as North Hardin rallied for a 79-74 win in the 104th meeting between the former 17th District rivals.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: E'town...

    The Elizabethtown Panthers made the 17th District race a lot more interesting Tuesday night.

    Behind the senior duo of Chris McDonald and Mitchell Henry, the Panthers knocked off previously unbeaten John Hardin, 74-66 in a district game at the Dawg Pound.

  • PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Central...

    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins’ two-game winning streak came to a screeching halt Monday night.
    The host Lincoln County Lady Patriots led by 15 points at the half and cruised to a 54-18 win over the Lady Bruins.
    The offensive output was Central Hardin’s worst in the Lady Bruins’ 376 games on the KHSAA scoreboard, which began tracking scores online during the 1997-98 postseason.
    Senior guard Alysse Bishop scored nine points for Central Hardin (8-10), which had no other player score more than two points.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: Meade County at...

    Meade County coach Jerry Garris isn’t sure what it takes for his younger, smaller Green Wave to match up with the North Hardin Trojans.

    What he is sure of is this – Meade County doesn’t have it.

    “There’s no way we can prepare for them, and there’s nobody we can put out there who can do what they do. We have to concentrate on what I think we can do and go from there,” said Garris, whose Green Wave (7-9) travel to Radcliff to play the Trojans (10-7) at 7:30 tonight.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    John Hardin coach Mark Wells understands his 12th-ranked Bulldogs are constantly referred to as “the last unbeaten team in the state.”

    A cool moniker to be sure, but Wells has stressed to his team that it better enjoy its run while it lasts.

    “You better say it as long as you can. It may not last much longer,” Wells said.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL...

I took a look at boys’ basketball Monday and now it’s time to turn our attention to girls’ basketball today. So let’s take stock of where we are with five weeks remaining.
