  • BOYS' 11TH DISTRICT...

    CLOVERPORT — In the end, a lousy third quarter was too much for the Meade County Green Wave to overcome Friday night.

    Breckinridge County held Meade County to three points in the third period, turning a four-point lead into an 18-point cushion it wouldn’t relinquish en route to a 63-57 win in the championship of the Boys’ 11th District Basketball Tournament at the Cloverport Sports Center.

  • BOYS' 18TH DISTRICT...

    Trifecta!

  • GIRLS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    With their faithful Elizabethtown student section adorned in swashbuckler garb that would make Johnny Depp proud to be a Pirate of the Caribbean, the sixth-ranked Lady Panthers fittingly pillaged and plundered their way to some record-setting booty Friday night.

  • GIRLS' 18TH DISTRICT...

    Senior twins Valerie and Lyndsay Whitlock – and the LaRue County Lady Hawks – finally have their 18th District Basketball Tournament title.

    After six years and in their final season, the sisters finally got to cut down the nets. 

  • GIRLS' 11TH DISTRICT...

    CLOVERPORT — This time, there were no late-game heroics for the Meade County Lady Waves.

    Thursday night belonged to Breckinridge County junior forward Mary Decker and the rest of the Lady Tigers.

    Decker scored a game-high 26 points and hit all 10 of her free throws to lift her team to a 57-50 win over Meade County in the championship game of the Girls’ 11th District Basketball Tournament at the Cloverport Sports Center.

  • BOYS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    Elizabethtown assured there will be a new 17th District Boys’ Basketball Tournament champion.

    The Panthers took advantage of the Trojans’ porous interior defense – and ate them up in the post throughout the first half.

  • BOYS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs relied on their youngest starter to carry them early on Thursday evening, but once their lead was in jeopardy, the seniors finished off the job.

    Sophomore Brandon Price scored a game-high 21 points and seniors Malcolm Foster and Jeff Richard sparked a 16-0 run to lead the Bulldogs to a 67-48 victory in the Boys’ 17th District Basketball Tournament semifinals at Bruin Gym.

  • GIRLS' PREP SWIMMING:...

    LOUISVILLE Mavi Sampaio loved coaching swimming in college, but the punishing cold of North Dakota began to wear on him and his two daughters, Manuela and Mariana. Keep in mind Mavi spent most of his life in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, and his daughters lived there until Manuela was four and Mariana was two.

  • MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL:...

    BOWLING GREEN — About the only consistent thing this year for the inconsistent Western Kentucky University Hilltoppers has been senior forward Steffphon Pettigrew.

    A former News-Enterprise Area Player of the Year and the only Mr. Basketball the area’s produced, the 6-foot-5, 223-pound Pettigrew will play his final game in front of the Diddle Arena faithful tonight against Sun Belt Conference rival Florida International. Tip is set for 8 with senior night festivities starting at 7:35.

  • BOYS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    It’s strange how the Boys’ 17th District Tournament worked out. John Hardin and North Hardin get to play teams they swept during the regular season, which has the coaches a little uneasy heading into tonight’s semifinal matchup, considering the adage it’s hard to beat a team three times.

    “People ask me who I’d like to play in the district tournament and I say none of them,” John Hardin coach Mark Wells said. “Whoever you play, it’s going to be a tough game.”
