  • BOYS' BASKETBALL SWEET...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs are going to the Boys’ Sweet Sixteen for only the second time in the program’s history. Their first-round opponent has been there more often, but not much.

    John Hardin (22-8) meets the Johnson Central Golden Eagles (25-10) at 8 p.m. Thursday at Rupp Arena in the final game of the first round. Getting back to the state tournament has been a huge goal for the Bulldogs since their first trip.

  • PREP BASEBALL ROUNDUP: Meade...

    Meade County got off to a hot offensive start in its season opener.

    Senior Bo Wilson went 3-for-5 and combined for a no-hitter with junior pitcher Jake Wilson on the mound Saturday afternoon as Meade County shut out Fort Knox, 16-0 in five innings.

    Meade County (1-0) scored eight runs in each of the first two innings en route to the blowout.

    Bo Wilson pitched the first three innings and recorded eight strikeouts, while Jake Wilson went the final two and had six strikeouts and walked one.

  • PREP BOWLING: Taylor County...

    Although they have little to do with offense in baseball or horse racing wins, the Taylor County Lady Cardinals completed a regular-season triple crown against their 2nd Region bowling rivals.

  • PREP BOWLING: John Hardin trio...

    Their high school soccer season ended in October, but three John Hardin girls are getting their kicks in as members of another Lady Bulldogs sports team.

    On the soccer pitch, seniors Chelsey Cobler and Anjelica Dones and junior Samantha Mazzorato-Smith helped John Hardin to a 9-8-2 record this past fall. In the bowling alley, the three have helped the Lady Bulldogs’ inaugural team to an 8-3 record and top-four finishes in all three of their tournaments entering Saturday’s first John Hardin Invitational at Dix-E-Town Lanes.

  • WOMEN'S GOLF: State Am...

    One golf course's pass landed an area course a treasure.

    The Falls Resort & Golf Club (formerly Lafayette Golf Club) in Falls of Rough was slated to host the women's State Amateur for the second time in nine years, but the Women’s Kentucky State Golf Association shifted the 2012 State Amateur from Grayson County to Elizabethtown Country Club (ECC) from June 25-29 at the suggestion of The Falls management.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL: Oh...

    When he was growing up, Brandon Price can’t count how many times his older brother, Ricky, reminded him of the fact he helped the John Hardin Bulldogs to the Sweet Sixteen in 2006.

    “Since the day he went to State, he’s always been talking about it,” Brandon said. “He always tells me about it all the time.”

  • HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS: An honor for...

    Long before Andre Woodson burst on the national scene at the University of Kentucky, high school sports fans in Kentucky witnessed Woodson’s special talents on the gridiron and the hardwood.

    Woodson enjoyed a stellar career at North Hardin High School where he piled up a remarkable list of accomplishments while helping the Trojans to plenty of wins. Woodson’s achievements were recognized Tuesday night as he was inducted into the 5th Region Athletic Directors Hall of Fame at Central Hardin High School prior to the boys’ region championship.

  • PREP BASKETBALL OPINION:...

    Some teams have trouble adapting their style of play to what other teams do. Up-tempo teams don’t like to slow down. Teams that play a deliberate, slow-paced game don’t want to be sped up.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    Over the past three-and-a-half weeks, Brandon Price has put on all kind of dazzling, jaw-dropping performances.

    He’s hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer lifting that capped a crazy comeback win over Jeffersontown, sunk game-sealing free throws to capture the Boys’ 17th District Basketball Tournament title game and hit a game-tying jumpshot that helped the John Hardin Bulldogs force overtime and an eventual win over LaRue County in the 5th Region Tournament semifinals.  

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    It wouldn’t have been strange to walk in the John Hardin locker room at halftime and hear Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” The Bulldogs found themselves in a nine-point hole after trailing by as many as 15 in the first 16 minutes.

    Instead of hitting the panic button, the Bulldogs stayed the course and continued to follow the game plan despite the deficit. Most importantly, they believed they could come back.
