    After graduating 13 players, Meade County girls’ soccer coach Dan Shook understands why some coaches in the 10th District might not expect much out of the Lady Waves this season.

    Shook, however, is not one of those coaches.

    “Thirteen seniors are gone. There was a concern about what kind of vacuum that would leave, but a lot of these girls have stepped up and filled spots,” Shook said. “So far, I’ve seen a lot of good things from the girls; good, positive work ethics.”

    Josh Hardin was ready to give up coaching soccer after the North Hardin Christian Falcons went 3-6 last season in the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association.

    Getting to the state tournament recently hasn’t been an issue for area high school soccer programs. It’s sticking around that’s a problem.

    The Elizabethtown and John Hardin boys have combined for three consecutive appearances at State, while the Elizabethtown and Central Hardin girls have combined for 10 straight berths to State since 2000.

    But all of those appearances haven’t equated to much success as area teams are 2-11 in the first round and 0-2 in the quarterfinals since 2000.

    North Hardin boys’ soccer coach Jim Stone came into the preseason with worries about how the team would play without Tyler Blankenship, who scored 60 percent of the team’s goals in his senior season.

    It didn’t take long for the Trojans to put their coach’s mind at ease.

    The Central Hardin Bruins have been slowly building the program back up to the level it needed to be since Mike Wiersema took over three years ago.

    After a 10-4-4 record last year and a successful preseason, one might think the Bruins would be giddy with anticipation of the upcoming season. But Wiersema is quick to point out a good week at camp and the Bluegrass State Games doesn’t mean much.

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers are after a decade of dominance.

    The Lady Panthers went 15-8-2 last year in their first season under coach Jerry Crabtree and lost to Louisville DuPont Manual in the first round of the state tournament.

    With nine starters and 11 reserves back from that squad, the Lady Panthers are heavy favorites to win their ninth straight 10th District Tournament championship and their 10th consecutive 5th Region Tournament title.
