  • HUNTING: Local man bags big deer...

    Bill Heath has been hunting so long he’s lost track of how many deer he’s taken over the years.

    This time, Heath won’t have any problems remembering the deer he took the second day of opening weekend.

    Hunting on a friend’s farm near Cecilia, the Elizabethtown resident bagged his biggest buck yet: a six-pointer with a 20-inch spread that, based on estimations by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, weighed nearly 300 pounds before Heath field dressed it.

    North Hardin coach James Slaven was concerned with how his young Lady Trojans would react in their season opener at Hart County on Monday night.

    Slaven didn’t have to wait long to get his answer.

    North Hardin fell behind 16-0 in the first 5 minutes and North Hardin didn’t score until junior Brianna Woodson hit a free throw with 2:16 left in the first quarter.

    Despite the shaky start, the Lady Trojans overcame it, going toe-to-toe with one of the most experienced teams in the 5th Region before falling to Hart County, 78-63.

  • PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Fort...

    The host Fort Knox Eagles turned a two-point lead after the first 8 minutes into a double-digit cushion at halftime as they toppled 5th Region rival Caverna, 67-61 in both teams’ season opener Monday night.

    Senior Jermell Rogers paced Fort Knox with 20 points, six rebounds and two steals, while senior Gadiel Mendez added 17 points and five assists. Senior Brandon Cullum chipped in with 10 points, seven rebounds and three assists and Rashad Orange had 12 rebounds and eight points.

    For the first quarter Monday night, the Meade County Lady Waves had high hopes of knocking off former 17th District rival Elizabethtown.

    Freshman guard Raley Johnson hit 4-of-6 3-pointers to spark the homestanding Lady Waves to a one-point lead at the end of the period.

    Then, just like coach Josh Hurt predicted in the preseason, Meade County’s inexperience began to show. Elizabethtown outscored the Lady Waves, 25-15 in the second quarter and pulled away in the second half on its way to a 78-55 victory in both teams’ season opener.
