  • BASEBALL: Delabar to be featured...

    It’s been said and written on more than one occasion that Steve Delabar’s tale of going from a physically broken down minor-league baseball pitcher turned John Hardin High School assistant coach/substitute teacher to a 28-year-old rookie relief pitcher with the Seattle Mariners has basis for a blockbuster movie.

    At minimum, Delabar’s yarn is good enough for a long-running, acclaimed sports newsmagazine on a major television network.

  • BOYS' PREP BOWLING: North...

    CAMPBELLSVILLE — The John Hardin Bulldogs started the season as the last area boys’ bowling team to pick up a win. They’ll end it as the last one standing.

    Putting together their best bakers of the season, the Bulldogs used a rotation of all 11 players on the roster en route to earning a runner-up finish to the powerhouse and tournament host Taylor County Cardinals on Saturday in the 2nd (Mid Kentucky) Region Bowling Tournament at Phillips Lanes.

  • GIRLS' PREP BOWLING:...

    CAMPBELLSVILLE — With her face flush red, Keri Johnson plopped down in a chair and blew up a strand of her blond hair.

    The Central Hardin junior felt like he had run a marathon, when in reality, she had just went through a gauntlet.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN: John...

    LEXINGTON — The John Hardin Bulldogs had a losing record entering January and they ended up playing on the next to last day of the season.

    After dropping five of their first eight games, the Bulldogs won 20 of their next 23, including 11 straight before falling to the Scott County Cardinals, 61-40 in the quarterfinals of the PNC/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen at Rupp Arena.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN :...

    LEXINGTON — The popular thing in sports is to make guarantees. New York Jets coach Rex Ryan does it. Detroit Tigers closer Jose Valverde did it in the team’s series with the New York Yankees. Former Cleveland Cavaliers guard Mo Williams foolishly did it back before LeBron James took his talents elsewhere. The most famous one of all was Joe Namath’s before Super Bowl III.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN: Cold...

    LEXINGTON — John Hardin’s offense carried the Bulldogs to the PNC/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen, but it ultimately is what doomed them once they reached Rupp Arena.

    No matter who shot the ball or how close, the Bulldogs struggled to knock down shots Friday night in the state quarterfinals and the Scott County Cardinals made them pay. The Cardinals pulled away in the final 12 minutes for a 61-40 victory.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN OPINION...

    LEXINGTON – It wasn’t a thing of beauty for the John Hardin Bulldogs, but it will be remembered forever nonetheless around the school.

    Thursday night’s 49-36 victory over the Johnson Central Golden Eagles in the first round of the PNC/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen at Rupp Arena was John Hardin’s first in the state tournament. It probably doesn’t erase the painful memories of 2006 – the Bulldogs’ only other appearance – but the significance wasn’t lost on the Bulldogs.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN: John...

    LEXINGTON Much of the pregame hype entering the final of the eight quarterfinals at the PNC/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen State Basketball Tournament centered around Johnson Central’s 6-foot-7 sophomore center Shane Hall.

    Instead, John Hardin’s Brandon Price showed it should have been centered around someone much, much shorter.
