  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    GREENSBURG The LaRue County Lady Hawks ran with not just the top team in the 5th Region on Tuesday night, but one of the top squads in the state and even the country in the Marion County Lady Knights.

    After overcoming an early flurry of turnovers inside the Green County High School gym, the Lady Hawks outscored the mighty Lady Knights over the final 17 minutes before falling, 82-60 in the highest-scoring championship game in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament’s 39-year history.

  • BOYS' SWEET 16 BASKETBALL:...

    Talent alone is not a winning component. Talent can take teams so far, but it doesn’t guarantee success. To achieve bigger goals and dreams, teams need other facets.

  • GIRLS' 3RD REGION...

    OWENSBOROMeade County senior Maya Luney can’t help but think her career would still be going if the Lady Waves had just a little more time Monday night in the Girls’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament championship game.

    After falling behind by 16 in the third quarter against Owensboro Catholic, the Lady Waves rallied and cut their deficit to one with just over 2 minutes remaining at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

    But time ran out on Meade County.

    Forget about red because Travis Wootton’s blood runs LaRue County blue and white.

    He coaches at the school where he starred in high school in the late 1980s and early ‘90s and at the school where his older sister, Allison, led the Lady Hawks – who he now coaches – to new heights and their last previous win against 5th Region powerhouse Elizabethtown prior to this season.

    During practice Monday afternoon before the biggest game of their high-school careers, the LaRue County Lady Hawks were foot-loose and fancy-free.

  • GIRLS' 3RD REGION...

    The last time Meade County faced Owensboro Catholic, a future Duke University signee single handedly led the Lady Aces past the Lady Waves in the Girls’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament.

    Then a sophomore, Becca Greenwell torched Meade County for 41 points, 18 rebounds and seven 3-pointers as Owensboro Catholic knocked the Lady Waves out of the postseason in the 2011 quarterfinals.

    MUNFORDVILLE — Is John Hardin becoming the new North Hardin on the hardwood? It certainly appears that way.

    The Trojans dominated the 5th Region for a number of years. They have 12 region championship trophies to prove it. They were the envy of most schools in the region. Their dominance was never more evident than winning the title five times in a span of six years from 1998-2003.

    GREENSBURG The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers didn’t feel pressure to beat top-ranked Marion County on Sunday evening. What the Lady Panthers did feel, however, was the vaunted defense of the undefeated Lady Knights once the three-time defending 5th Region champions turned up the heat.

    GREENSBURG — In a journey to their first appearance in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament’s championship game, Ivy Brown and the LaRue County Lady Hawks must have had Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin” playing on a continuous loop on their Iphones, Ipods and whatever else teenage girls listen to music on these days.
