  • 11TH DISTRICT BOYS'...

    No matter if his team has won 20 games or nine, Meade County coach Jerry Garris is a firm believer that anything can happen when the postseason starts.

    While trying to get the Green Wave fired up for the Boys’ 11th District Basketball Tournament, Garris pointed to the Pikeville Shelby Valley Wildcats – who, after winning the state title in 2010, made it back to the state tournament in 2011 after winning nine games in the regular season.

  • 11TH DISTRICT GIRLS'...

    LEWISPORT — To the Meade County Lady Waves, Monday was just like another day of practice.

    They worked on every play in their arsenal and fine-tuned things ahead of Thursday’s Girls’ 11th District Basketball Tournament championship game against tournament host Hancock County.

    All 14 players on top-seeded Meade County’s roster scored as the Lady Waves rolled to an 89-22 win over fourth-seeded Cloverport Frederick Fraize.

  • 17TH DISTRICT BOYS'...

    Elizabethtown sophomore Zach Patterson admits he didn’t shoot the ball well during the Panthers’ practice at John Hardin’s Dawg Pound on Sunday afternoon.

    No one could tell the way he shot it Monday night.

    Patterson came off the bench to nail five 3-pointers and score a game-high 21 points to spark fourth-seeded Elizabethtown to a 78-43 rout of the fifth-seeded Fort Knox Eagles in the quarterfinal of the Boys’ 17th District Basketball Tournament at John Hardin.

  • 11TH DISTRICT GIRLS'...

    Heading into the Girls’ 11th District Basketball Tournament, the Meade County Lady Waves are one confident bunch.

    Shooting the ball well can have that type of affect on a team.

    In seven of their final nine games, the top-seeded Lady Waves (19-9) hit eight or more 3-pointers as they closed the regular season by winning 8-of-9. Meade County has shot better than 40 percent from the field in six of those games.

  • 18TH DISTRICT BOYS'...

    No team in the history of the Boys’ 18th District Basketball Tournament has won the title five straight times, although history looks it will be made this week at Hart County.

    Led by star senior point guard Kelton Ford, the top-seeded and four-time defending champion LaRue County Hawks appear primed to make that history.

  • 17TH DISTRICT BASKETBALL: Here...

    High school teams have put in plenty of work this season. Teams began practicing Oct. 15. They have put in countless hours in the gym, working on shooting, rebounding and defense. Most of them had two scrimmages and then have played 25 or more games. There have been ups and downs for each and every team, but it’s gotten us to this point. So what have we learned so far this season?

    Here are 10 things we think we know:

  • Boys' 17th District Preview...

    Marion County coach Montrell Irvin has had a first-hand look at the top four teams in the 17th District.

    It hasn’t been a pleasant experience for Irvin’s Knights, who lost twice to Elizabethtown, once to Central Hardin in the Campbellsville University Holiday Classic, once at North Hardin and once on their home floor to John Hardin.

    So which team stood out to Irvin? He didn’t have to ponder the question too long before making an emphatically case for the district’s top seed.

  • BASEBALL: Adcock signs deal,...

    It’s been a busy last few days for Kansas City Royals right-handed pitcher Nate Adcock.

    On Friday, the former North Hardin star was 1-of-7 players who agreed to one-year contracts with the Royals. Adcock agreed to a deal worth $500,540.

    According to the Kansas City Star, “Those salaries are what each player would make if he remains in the majors for the entire season. The major-league minimum salary for 2013 is $490,000. Players make substantially less if sent to the minors.”

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Morgan Turner and the Meade County Lady Waves weren’t shooting the ball the way they’re accustomed to against the Central Hardin Lady Bruins on Friday. Shots they usually made were bouncing off the rim and even wide-open looks weren’t falling.

    Though the Lady Waves were struggling from the field, the Lady Bruins couldn’t keep up. Meade County turned a seven-point lead into a double-digit advantage in the second quarter and eventually cruised, 70-31.

  • PREP WRESTLING: John Hardin...

    LEXINGTONThough he was facing the state’s top-ranked 220-pound wrestler in his first state championship match, Cameron Mattingly knew he had no reason to be intimidated.

    The John Hardin junior had nothing to lose against undefeated Campbell County sophomore Austin Myers during Saturday’s night’s KHSAA State Wrestling Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Alltech Arena.
