  • MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL:...

    Chris McDonald admitted he wasn’t entirely locked into Monday night’s road game, but the stat line didn’t show it for the Elizabethtown Community & Technical College forward.

    A former Elizabethtown High School star, McDonald scored a game-high 26 points on 11-of-14 shooting from the floor and 4-of-4 shooting from the foul line as the Barons rolled to an 86-58 win over the St. Catharine College Patriots’ junior varsity.

  • PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Caverna...

    Despite the visiting Caverna Colonels attempting 27 more free throws, the Fort Knox Eagles had a shot at picking up a season-opening win Monday night.

    But the Eagles’ 3-pointer at the buzzer bounced off the rim, giving the Colonels a 55-53 win.

    Junior guard Michael Armstead led Fort Knox with 13 points and hit three 3s, while junior guard Michael Powell added nine points and seven rebounds. Junior guard Chris Jackson scored eight points, while senior guard/forward Rashaan Allen chipped in with seven points and 10 rebounds.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bulldogs bring...

    The John Hardin football program lost some of its luster after last season’s embarrassing 62-20 loss to Bowling Green in the Class 5-A state semifinals. Everything it had accomplished in recent years was wiped away with one loss.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin...

    The John Hardin seniors began this season with one goal — winning the program’s first state championship. That quest came up 96 seconds short.

    After leading for more than 41 minutes, the Bulldogs suffered another gut-wrenching playoff loss as Bowling Green scored with 1:36 remaining to pull off a shocking 14-13 victory Friday night in the Class 5-A state semifinals at Bulldog Stadium.

  • PREP FOOTBALL John Hardin slows...

    No team has seemed to have an answer for slowing down the Bowling Green offense the last two years until Friday night.

    The John Hardin Bulldogs found a way to do that, but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough as the Purples made enough plays – three to be exact – to pull out a 14-13 victory in the Class 5-A state semifinals at a packed Bulldog Stadium.

    “We played a heckuva defensive game,” John Hardin junior Matt Elam said. “We thought we had it. We let up on just that one play. It was a silly mistake and it cost us big.”

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bulldogs have...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs had no problem moving the ball Friday night. Getting into the end zone was a much different story.

    The Bulldogs rolled up 325 yards of total offense against an aggressive Bowling Green defense, but missed opportunities and a failed 2-point conversion ended up the difference in a 14-13 loss in the Class 5-A state semifinals.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bulldogs lose...

    In his 12 seasons as John Hardin head coach, Mark Brown has seen his share of tough losses, but Friday night’s loss to Bowling Green might rank at the top of the list.

    The Bulldogs have experienced nothing but heartbreak and heartache in the playoffs, and the Purples added another chapter. The Purples used a trick play — a hook and ladder — and then made the conversion with less than 2 minutes to pull out a 14-13 victory and shock John Hardin in the Class 5-A state semifinals.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin looks...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs have shown so much improvement since their season-opening 44-27 victory over Lexington Henry Clay, which put up more than 350 yards including 245 on the ground.

    John Hardin’s defense was a work in progress early in the season, and the Bulldogs steadily improved from game to game. In the playoffs, they have turned it up a notch, looking like a typical John Hardin defense.
