  • PREP GOLF: Lady Bruin...

    The Lady Bruin Invitational has always been one of the state’s premier golf tournaments and this year’s field proves that.

    Central Hardin coach Chris Adams has 19 teams and more than 100 golfers entered in Saturday’s event at Lindsey Golf Course on Fort Knox. The tournament, which begins at 12:45 p.m. with a shotgun start, has attracted teams from across the state and one from Ohio.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Lady Panthers...

    Without its top defensive specialist, Elizabethtown mixed, matched and muddled its way through a full five-set 17th District road victory Thursday.

    For now, the Lady Panthers are unbeaten in district play and atop the standings. But only by the skin of their teeth.


    Sophomore forward Dorothy Suzanne and junior midfielder Lexi Lopez each scored twice and junior midfielder Kiera Jones had four assists Wednesday as the North Hardin Lady Trojans topped visiting 17th District rival Fort Knox, 6-2.

    Freshman forward Jasmine Green and senior forward Auburn Yates also scored for the Lady Trojans (2-0 overall, 1-0 district), who led 3-1 at the half.

    Senior keeper Ariana Martinez made 12 saves.

    Sophomore defender Emma Stenman and junior defender Christina Rice scored for Fort Knox (0-2, 0-1).

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    Among many of the troubles for the winless Elizabethtown Panthers last year was moving the ball on the ground.

    That’s not looking like much of a problem entering the second year of the Adam Billings era.

    Billings unveiled the Panthers’ pro-style I-formation offense to mild success last week in a 21-21 tie in a home scrimmage against Louisville Moore. Senior halfback Josh Williams led the way by scoring all three touchdowns and churning out 191 combined yards rushing and receiving on 21 touches.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin'...

    The atmosphere at John Hardin’s football practice changed this week. After four weeks of beating up on one another and a scrimmage against Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park, the Bulldogs understand the pressure and intensity ramps up now.

    John Hardin opens the season Friday night as the Bulldogs travel to Lexington Henry Clay. The Bulldogs have won 10 consecutive season openers since dropping their first one in 2001.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue County...

    Josh Jaggers gets to go home Friday night to face a longtime friend.

    Making his head coaching debut for the LaRue County Hawks, Jaggers travels to collegiate alma mater Campbellsville University to take on the Adair County Indians in the 8:30 nightcap of the opening day of the Forcht Bank Bowl at Finley Stadium.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Panthers...

    Veteran Elizabethtown boys’ soccer coach Jon Parsons knows it not how a game starts that matters, but how it’s finished.

    After falling behind to visiting 17th District rival Fort Knox early in the first half, the Panthers rallied with eight unanswered goals for an 8-2 win in both teams’ season openers Tuesday night.

    “I’m very proud of my boys in the way we battled back,” Parsons said. “We had to adjust and come out and regroup in the second half. I’m proud of how we responded.”

    LEITCHFIELD — Results from Tuesday’s match at the par-36 Legacy Golf Course:


  • BASEBALL: Delabar pitches way to...

    The Toronto Blue Jays have had some pretty good pitchers in their 35-year history, but none of them accomplished what Steve Delabar did Monday night.

    Delabar, a 29-year-old right-handed relief pitcher, struck out four batters in the 10th inning and also picked up the win as the Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox, 3-2 in 11 innings.
