  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Elizabethtown...

    After this week, Elizabethtown’s volleyball team will definitely get a glimpse of where it stands against some of the 5th Region’s top teams.

    The Lady Panthers have faced more than a handful already – but not in a slew of matches like this.

    This week alone, they’ll have taken on three of the region’s elite teams.

  • PREP GOLF: North boys' golf...

    The fifth annual North Hardin Invitational boys’ golf tournament is much like the previous ones. It features a stacked field and is a good prelude to what could happen in the postseason.

    The North Hardin Invitational is Saturday at Lincoln Trail Country Club. The tournament begins at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start. This year’s event features 21 teams.


    Meade County staved off those pesky John Hardin Lady Bulldogs.

    The Lady Waves needed three sets, but hung on for a 25-20, 22-25, 25-17 victory Thursday night over John Hardin.

    Meade County (13-4) won its third straight match and now has three winning streaks of three games or more this season.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Green Wave...

    Junior Chase Long scored twice and the Meade County Green Wave snapped a two-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over visiting Marion County on Thursday.

    Both of Long’s goals came in the first half for the Green Wave (9-6-1), who had lost 5-of-6.

    Junior keeper Alex Fackler made eight saves as Meade County outshot Marion County, 19-8.

    UP NEXT: Meade County hosts John Hardin at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

    ELIZABETHTOWN Results from Thursday's match at the par-36 front nine at Pine Valley Golf Resort:

  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue looks to...

    LaRue County defensive coordinator Josh Jaggers has lost a lot of sleep this week in getting his Hawks prepared to face the Warren East Raiders.

    Stopping the Raiders (4-1) isn’t going to be easy.

    Warren East, which has won three straight entering tonight’s game at 8 in Hodgenville, presents a multi-pronged offensive attack that could give the Hawks (2-3) fits.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins show Perry...

    Central Hardin first-year coach Mark Perry was able to see something from his Bruins for the first time during his tenure last Friday. And it’s something the Bruins can continue to build upon moving forward.

    The Bruins struggled offensively in the first half against the North Hardin Trojans, managing only 6 yards of total offense. They rebounded to take a 21-14 lead before North Hardin scored with less than a minute left to force overtime. After the Trojans took a 24-21 lead, Central Hardin scored a touchdown to pull out the victory.


    Six weeks into the season and we’re finally getting games that matter. That’s right: district games – for some – begin tonight.

    For five- and six-team districts, games begin to count as far as playoffs are concerned. North Hardin travels to Grayson County for a Class 5-A, District 3 game, while John Hardin goes to Louisville Iroquois. In Class 2-A, District 4, Fort Knox hosts Louisville DeSales.

    Meanwhile, Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, LaRue County and Meade County all are still two weeks away from starting district games.


    The Central Kentucky-Western Kentucky Challenge at Doug Smith Memorial Stadium in Elizabethtown has been less a four-game showcase hosted by the currently ranked No. 1 Lady Panthers and more of a domination by the more eastern squads.

    Heading into Saturday’s fifth annual event, Central Kentucky is a commanding 10-2-3 in the event. There were only three games in 2006 and the 2007 event was rained out.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central Hardin...

    Central Hardin locked up the top seed for the 17th District Volleyball Tournament. But the No. 14 Lady Bruins didn’t drop district rival Elizabethtown with their normal killing barrage or high-energy offensive attack.

    Instead, they said dig this.

    Junior Courtney Helton totaled a team-high eight digs, while senior Cheyenne Mills and junior Sydney Hall combined for seven blocks to lead host Central Hardin to a 25-19, 25-15 victory over Elizabethtown on Thursday night.
