  • 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.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    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.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Playing against a senior-laden Central Hardin squad, a rising youngster stole the show early in the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ home opener Thursday night.

    Eighth-grade forward Erin Boley scored 10 of her game-high 16 points in the first 9 minutes as the Lady Panthers jumped on Central Hardin from the start before cruising to a 67-34 win over the Lady Bruins.

    Boley made two jumpers and a free throw in Elizabethtown’s first five possessions as the Lady Panthers (10-2 overall, 4-0 district) opened with an 8-2 run.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    After pulling off one big 17th District victory earlier this week, the Central Hardin Lady Bruins are hoping for a little more magic tonight when they visit the homestanding Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Holtsclaw...

    John Hardin junior strong safety Wade Holtsclaw couldn’t hide his excitement when talking about his invitation to the U.S. Army National Combine this weekend in San Antonio.

    Host Louisville Mercy closed the game on an 11-1 run to hand Elizabethtown its second loss of the season, 72-61 on Tuesday.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Jansen Flood’s first shot swished through the net. 

    So did a whole lot more.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The Central Hardin Bruins had an answer every time the North Hardin Trojans made a run Tuesday night and those responses usually came from one of their reserves.

    The Central Hardin bench – namely senior Jared Cromartie and juniors Alex Crowder and Tyler McCullough – produced 27 points to help the Bruins to a 70-59 victory over North Hardin in a 17th District game at Ron Bevars Gymnasium.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Many state girls’ basketball coaches and college recruiting evaluators have been enamored by the LaRue County duo of sophomore wing Ivy Brown and freshman guard Alexis Brewer.

    However, the Lady Hawks’ young tandem were no match for the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs’ unsung trio Tuesday night in Radcliff.
