  • BOYS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    Will Strickland has fond memories of the Hardin County Fairgrounds.

    It’s the site of some of the Meade County senior’s most dominating performances.

    Saturday was no different as Strickland won the Central Hardin Invitational for the second straight year, winning the 115-runner race in 16 minutes, 40.69 seconds – which was 8 seconds faster than last year’s win.

    “I have one goal in mind, and that’s to get from Point A to Point B as fast as I could,” Strickland said.

  • GIRLS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    When the calendar turns to September, the schedule gets a little hectic for Elizabethtown junior Hannah Godfrey, who must balance morning and afternoon swim practices along with cross country practice.

    Following a tiresome week that featured morning swim practices at 5:30, she was running nearly on empty at Saturday’s Central Hardin Invitational at the Hardin County Fairgrounds.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: John Hardin...

    The John Hardin Lady Bulldogs won once on Friday and twice on Saturday to finish 3-0 and win the title in the four-team Meade County Lady Waves Classic.

    The Lady Bulldogs (8-5-1) earned a 4-1 win over Meade County on Friday before edging Shelby County, 2-1 in their first game Saturday. They ended the round-robin event by hammering Breckinridge County, 10-0 in a 60-minute mercy-rule game.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL ROUNDUP: Central...

    Central Hardin is the queen of the court, literally.

    The No. 11 Lady Bruins captured their own 12-team Queens of the Court Invitational, finishing 5-0 in the Friday-Saturday tournament.

    The Lady Bruins (22-1) defeated Edmonson County 25-7, 25-14 and North Bullitt 21-25, 25-13, 15-4 in pool play Friday, then knocked off Boyle County 25-14, 25-7 in pool play Saturday.

  • MEN'S COLLEGE SOCCER: ECTC...

    With no depth to turn to until the second half, Daniel Ruiz said the Elizabethtown Community & Technical College Barons men’s soccer team played Saturday exactly how it felt on the road against the St. Catharine College Patriots reserves – tired.

    The Barons (1-2) trailed by two goals at halftime and by four in the second half before falling to the Patriots for the second time this season, 5-2.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Nelson...

    BARDSTOWN — With the LaRue County Hawks geared up to stop one of the state’s most potent passing attacks, Ben Jones and the Nelson County Cardinals were content to run on them Friday night.

    Senior quarterback Dylan Beasley entered the game as the state’s leader in passing yards, so naturally the Hawks wanted to limit the damage the Cardinals could do through the air.

    That opened things up for Jones and sophomore running back Charlie Berry, who combined for three touchdowns as they led Nelson County to a 31-15 win.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Meade...

    Meade County ran away from Jeffersontown.

    Thanks to veteran coach Larry Mofield’s halftime switch, the Green Wave are off the schnide and don’t have to deal with a losing streak anymore.

    Junior running back Nick O’Brien rushed for 96 yards and a score and senior running back John Clark rushed for 92 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries in Meade County’s 32-13 homecoming win Friday night.

    Meade County (2-3) totaled 211 rushing yards and four TDs on the ground, giving the Green Wave 11 rushing touchdowns this season.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Central...

    The Central Hardin Bruins relied on their bend-but-don’t-break defense Friday and it didn’t let them down.

    With the North Hardin Trojans driving for a potential game-winning touchdown, junior Alex Thompson intercepted a pass on the Central Hardin 14 with 3:46 left and the Bruins picked up two first downs to secure a 24-21 victory at Ray Story Stadium.

    It was Central Hardin’s fourth consecutive victory over the Trojans. This is Central Hardin first group of seniors to go 4-0 against North Hardin.
