  • GIRLS' 11TH DISTRICT...

    CLOVERPORT — Raley Johnson has never hit a bigger shot than the one she hit Monday night in the 11th District Tournament semifinals.

    Scarlett Powers and Morgan Turner and the rest of the Meade County Lady Waves knew they were in good hands.

    With the game tied at 55, Meade County got the ball back with 3.8 seconds left after a Hancock County turnover. Meade County coach Josh Hurt called a timeout and called a play to get Johnson the ball.

  • GIRLS' 18TH DISTRICT...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks have their first 18th District Tournament semifinal victory in coach Travis Wooton’s six-year tenure.

    Senior twins Valerie and Lyndsay Whitlock will finally have their chance at their first district title.

    But it took them a half to rid themselves of some nerves before they returned to their bread-and-butter inside game. Then, they dominated low to continue their record-setting season.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Since she first stepped on the floor as a middle schooler, Elizabethtown senior point guard Natalie Greenwell has been a model of consistency for the powerhouse Lady Panthers.

    Still, she found a way to pull a fast one on her teammates and even her family last week.

  • BOYS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    The Boys’ 17th District coaches have been talking about the parity in this district for the last few years, but this season it might be as balanced as ever. The line between winning and losing is razor thin.

    Look at what has happened this season. The fourth-seeded Central Hardin Bruins beat the third-seeded Elizabethtown Panthers. The Panthers knocked off the top-seeded John Hardin Bulldogs. The Bulldogs are the only team to beat the second-seeded North Hardin Trojans.

  • GIRLS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    Just when it looked as if the Fort Knox was going to hang around long enough to make a game out of it for once, Michelle Montgomery and John Hardin pushed the pedal to the metal and sped away.

    Montgomery, a sophomore center, scored six of her game-high 24 points in a 14-2 run to close the first half as the fourth-seeded Lady Bulldogs finally pulled away from the fifth-seeded Lady Eagles, 70-41 on Monday night in the 17th District Tournament’s lone quarterfinal at Elizabethtown’s Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium.

  • BOYS' 18TH DISTRICT: LaRue...

    The LaRue County Hawks didn’t have quite the finish they were looking for, but they still have the chance to make a bit of history.

    The Hawks, facing massive losses to graduation and transfers, rocketed out of the gate by winning 11 of their first 14 games. A three-point loss Jan. 15 at 5th Region foe Adair County started a span in which the Hawks dropped 7-of-11 to close the regular season.

  • GIRLS' 11TH DISTRICT...

    Scarlett Powers was a non-factor the last time the Meade County Lady Waves played 11th District rival Hancock County.

    Using a 2-3 zone, the Lady Hornets took Powers out of the Lady Waves’ game plan. Meade County coach Josh Hurt expects more of the same at 8 tonight in the semifinals of the 11th District Tournament at Cloverport Frederick Fraize.

    Powers didn’t make a field goal and was held to two points in a 52-46 overtime win at Hancock County on Feb. 15.

  • GIRLS' 18TH DISTRICT...

    Twins Valerie and Lyndsay Whitlock have the perfect setup for their final season.

    The only two LaRue County Lady Hawks seniors have never won a postseason game during their six-year playing careers – dating all the way back to middle school.

    Now, everything could be aligned so they can finally earn that elusive win and even bring home a district title.

    This year, LaRue County has set the school record for wins, earned the 18th District tournament’s top seed and could be playing for the title on its home floor.

  • GIRLS' 17th DISTRICT...

    The Girls’ 17th District Basketball Tournament has turned into the Elizabethtown Invitational.

    The Lady Panthers have dominated the tournament in recent years and they are shooting for an unprecedented sixth consecutive championship. No team has ever accomplished the feat. Central Hardin and Elizabethtown are the only two teams to win five in a row since the tournament began in 1975.

  • NFL: Masthay, community kick up...

    For once, Big Blue Nation appears to have met its match: Cheeseheads.

    And yet, neither one comes close to the growing community support for an adorable 2-year-old girl battling cancer.

    Tim Masthay, a former University of Kentucky punter who helped kick the Green Bay Packers to a Super Bowl title earlier this month, was greeted by a crowd of hundreds Saturday during his appearance at Play It Again Sports in Elizabethtown.
