    Bryce Byrd and the balanced Elizabethtown Panthers are youth in revolt – all the way to the top of the 17th District.

    The sophomore guard was 1-of-7 Panthers who scored at least seven points Friday as homestanding Elizabethtown overcame a horrendous night at the foul line to complete a regular-season sweep of the Central Hardin Bruins, 71-61.

    Byrd had 12 points, four rebounds and a game-high seven assists as the Panthers (9-4 overall, 3-0 district) won their fourth straight.

    Jermaine Ruttley had been waiting for this night, his chance to return the hardwood after missing several weeks with a stress fracture.

    The North Hardin senior guard was diagnosed with the injury following the Trojans’ season opener Nov. 29 and missed the next 11 games.

    After being cleared to play this week, Ruttley wasted little time making an impact Friday night against 17th District rival Fort Knox. He scored North Hardin’s first five points and finished with 21 points as the Trojans rolled to an 85-36 win at Ron Bevars Gymnasium.

    Meade County (9-6) led 19-17 at the end of the first, but was outscored 27-17 in the second period.

  • PREP WRESTLING: LaRue rolls into...

    The gap between the LaRue County Hawks and the rest of the Region 2 teams hasn’t gotten any smaller.

    Outside of three losses last month at the Smoky Mountain Duals, the top-ranked Hawks have continued to roll right along. LaRue County finished tied for third in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., in an event featuring seven of the southeast’s top-ranked teams.

    The Hawks hope to continue their torrid start this weekend as they host the Region 2 Duals beginning at 6:30 tonight. Action resumes at 9:30 Saturday morning.

    John Hardin coach Bryan Todd thinks sophomore post Zacchea Small has been overlooked by opposing teams this season.

    People should start taking notice of Small now.

    Small scored 24 points and had six rebounds, five steals and two assists Thursday to lead the visiting Lady Bulldogs to an 82-29 win over 17th District rival Fort Knox.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: Pivotal...

    The first Friday of the New Year gives high school basketball fans some choices as there are two 17th District boys’ games, an 18th District doubleheader and a matchup of former district foes.

    Elizabethtown hosts Central Hardin and Fort Knox plays at North Hardin in two key 17th District games. LaRue County travels to Green County to renew its rivalry with the Dragons in the 18th District. Meanwhile, John Hardin hosts Meade County in a battle of former 17th District rivals.

    During the preseason, John Hardin and North Hardin were the easy choices when asked to pick a favorite to win the 17th District this year. It’s hard to argue with the coaches’ logic. John Hardin still returned plenty of talent despite losing four seniors. Meanwhile, North Hardin had a roster stocked full of athletic players and senior point guard Jermaine Ruttley was back in the fold after missing his junior season because of an injury.
