  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins focus on...

    T.J. Gordon thinks his team will need more than that “Central Hardin grit” to stop the Bullitt East Chargers.

    The Central Hardin senior wide receiver/cornerback acknowledges some other attributes will come into play this week, too.

  • PREP GOLF: North Hardin...

    North Hardin boys’ golf coach Nathan Quesenberry was a little concerned with his team’s tournament. He only had about 10 teams committed to play and he was trying hard to lure some more.

    Quesenberry’s diligent work paid off as the sixth annual North Hardin Invitational on Saturday at Lincoln Trail Country Club in Vine Grove features another quality field. Quesenberry said he has 16 teams in the tournament, which is down five from last season.


    Senior striker Alex Cook scored off a corner kick from senior midfielder Marshall Metcalf with less than a minute remaining to lift the LaRue County Hawks to a 2-1 win over the Franklin-Simpson Wildcats on Thursday night in the Barren County Trojan Classic.

    Cook, who leads the area with 28 goals, gave the Hawks (8-4) the lead in the opening 13 minutes on a free kick.

    LaRue County sophomore keeper Holden Blair saved six shots by the Wildcats (7-3) as the Hawks outshot Franklin-Simpson, 17-8.


    After dropping the first set to host John Hardin, the Meade County Lady Waves rallied for a four-set win over the Lady Bulldogs on Thursday, 24-26, 25-19, 26-24, 25-19.

    Meade County (10-6) won for just the third time in its last seven matches. No statistics were available for the Lady Waves.

    John Hardin (6-14) lost for the eighth time in nine matches.

    Senior middle hitter Rachel Green led the Lady Bulldogs with 21 blocks, eight kills and one ace, while senior outside hitter Tori Nelson added eight kills, two assists, one ace and one block.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Knox gets...

    Fort Knox junior running back Antonio Copeland insists his team’s 1-3 start is a thing of the past.

    The real season starts at 7:30 tonight at Louisville Iroquois High School as the Eagles kick off Class 2-A, District 4 play against Louisville DeSales.


    One of the biggest regular-season cross country meets is Saturday – and four area schools will get an early glimpse of the state course in the process.

    The Franklin County Invitational provides runners from across the state an opportunity to run on the course they’ll traverse if they make it to the KHSAA State Cross Country Championships in November at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: John...

    After a play worked so well early for John Hardin, the Bulldogs didn’t waste time going back to it Thursday night against the host Central Hardin Bruins.

    Jeremy Garcia really didn’t mind in the least bit.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Lady Bruins...

    Central Hardin locked up the top seed Thursday night for next month’s 17th District Tournament.

    But first-year coach Bill Rineker admitted the No. 11 Lady Bruins aren’t where they need to be. And it’s all his fault.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: North Hardin...

    The North Hardin Trojans don’t have time to dwell on the one that got away, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

    The Trojans dominated the Central Hardin Bruins, racking up 519 yards of total offense, but mistakes – 11 penalties and four turnovers – cost them a shot at a victory. Instead of being 3-1, the Trojans are 2-2 after a 24-21 loss.

    North Hardin has no time to mope around about the defeat as the undefeated and 12th-ranked Grayson County Cougars come to Ray Story Stadium in Radcliff on Friday. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
