  • BOWLING: A lesson in longevity...

    Bowling has been called a lifetime sport because participants young or old can still have success.

    Pearl Bell, who is proof of that, did something last month that many professional bowlers haven’t done on tour.

    The 85-year-old Hardin County resident and veteran of the Tuesday morning Young at Heart weekly league at Dix-E-Town Lanes picked up the wicked 4-6-7-10 split last month.

    It didn’t take her long to remember the last time she had pulled off the feat, which requires knocking down the back two left pins and the back two right pins.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    Senior guard Jermaine Ruttley scored 26 points Tuesday and senior post Adam Hendrix had a double-double of 22 points and 13 rebounds as the visiting North Hardin Trojans knocked off Louisville DeSales, 74-63.

    Ruttley also had eight rebounds, six steals and four assists for the Trojans (6-16), who won their third straight.

    Senior forward Jauan Akins, playing for the first time since December, added 12 points and five rebounds.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    The host Central Hardin Lady Bruins couldn’t dig themselves out of a first-quarter hole.

    Central Hardin was held to five points in the first period en route to a 60-40 loss to 5th Region rival Green County on Tuesday.

    Senior wing Abby Newton paced the Lady Bruins (8-17) with 15 points, while sophomore guard Aislynn Barnes had 10 points, six rebounds and three steals. Senior post Alexis Johnson added nine points and nine rebounds.

    The News-Enterprise

    North Hardin junior guard Domeneque Taft erupted for a career-high 26 points and the Lady Trojans trounced Louisville Fern Creek, 93-41 on Monday to earn their second straight win.

    Taft went 4-of-9 from 3-point range and also had five steals, while senior guard Brianna Woodson scored 20 points.

    Junior forward Chanel Roberts recorded a double-double with 13 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists and five steals for North Hardin (18-8). Eighth-grade guard Tamiah Stanford added 13 points.

  • PREP WRESTLING: LaRue receives...

    DANVILLE — When it comes to seeding the Region 2 Wrestling Tournament, nothing really surprises longtime LaRue County coach Gary Canter.

    Following a dominant regular season in which they didn’t lose a match to in-state competition until the State Duals final against Union County, the top-ranked Hawks received seven top seeds for Saturday’s tournament that begins at 10 a.m. at Danville High School.

  • ON CAMPUS: Randles excels for CU...

    Former area athletes P.J. Randles, David McKellar, Tiana Benjamin and Kamika Joyner qualified for the National Christian College Athletic Association Indoor Championships while competing for Campbellsville University in Upland, Ind., on Saturday.

    Randles, a former North Hardin star, broke the school record in the 55-meter hurdles as he finished second in 7.94 seconds. He also qualified in the triple and long jumps. Randles finished second in the triple jump (13.75 meters) and seventh in the long (6.22 meters).

  • PRO FOOTBALL: Deaderick achieves...

    Everyone has dreams growing up. Brandon Deaderick was no different. He grew up with aspirations of being a professional football player. He wanted to be the next Bruce Smith or Reggie White.

    The first time Deaderick stepped on a football field, he was convinced this is what he wanted to do with his life. Some children want to be a fireman or police officer or a doctor. Deaderick’s dream was to one day play in the NFL.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER:...

    Samantha Matherly is not the most vocal individual, especially not from the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ talented soccer program,

    What the senior midfielder/defender didn’t provide in voice, Matherly instead gave her team savvy, skill and speed – and a lot of it.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The area’s top foul shooter made up for his off-target shooting and a late fourth-quarter miss.

  • PREP BOWLING: All programs have...

    The Dawgs had their day Saturday, but the afternoon wasn’t exactly a complete loss for North Hardin and Central Hardin, either.

    Paced by season bests from junior Lucas Ward and sophomore Morgan Parsons, John Hardin swept all four individual titles in the inaugural Hardin County Tournament of Champions at Dix-E-Town Lanes.

    Ward and Parsons rallied to win the mixed doubles title, while North Hardin and Central Hardin combined to split the four team competition.
