  • PREP SWIMMING: Elizabethtown...

    The Elizabethtown High School swim team met its lofty expectations on Friday and Saturday during the 3rd Region Championships at the new pool at Russell County High School in Russell Springs.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Hawks win fourth...

    For the LaRue County Hawks and retiring coach Gary Canter, it’s a good thing region championships aren’t won in November.

    Six Hawks won their weight class Saturday as the Hawks won their fourth straight 2nd Region Wrestling Tournament championship at John Hardin’s Dawg Pound.

    Canter closes his career with 13 region titles.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Moral victories aren’t necessarily celebrated by North Hardin coach Chris Corder and the Lady Trojans, but they’re at the very least acknowledged.

    Case in point was Friday night’s 65-48 loss to the top-ranked Marion County Lady Knights at Ron Bevars Gymnasium. It’s the third closest game the Lady Knights have had this season.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL: From...

    North Hardin senior guard Ruben Gosa knows how special Friday night was, not only to his coach, Ron Bevars, but the school and the community.

    With North Hardin’s 88-60 victory over Marion County, Bevars recorded the 800th win of a career that has spanned more than four decades and been littered with accomplishments and championships. He has transformed the program from mediocrity into a perennial power.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    With the Elizabethtown Panthers missing one of their best players in junior guard Ja’Von Cotton, Chas Jones knew someone needed to step up.

    Jones answered the call Friday night.

    The senior forward finished with 22 points, eight rebounds and four big steals to help the homestanding Panthers upset 5th Region rival Bardstown, 72-58 at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    North Hardin coach Ron Bevars didn’t alter his approach leading into Friday night’s game even though he was on the verge of another milestone, but it was running through the minds of the Trojans.

    Bevars recorded his 800th victory with North Hardin’s 88-60 victory over the Marion County Knights in the gym named after him.

  • PREP BOWLING: Glover finds a...

    LOUISVILLE Kawika Glover’s bowling career at North Hardin didn’t end the way he envisioned it would Thursday morning at Executive Strike & Spare, but he saw a silver lining.

    At least he was there.

    The only area individual of either gender with two individual trips to the Ebonite/KHSAA Bowling State Championships, the senior and 2nd Region Tournament champion finished 22nd in the 32-player event.

  • PREP SWIMMING: E'town...

    After his Elizabethtown Lady Panthers won last year’s 3rd Region Championship in Versailles, Elizabethtown swim coach Mavi Sampaio has a boom-or-bust mentality as the region meet moves to Russell County this year. Preliminaries begin this afternoon, while the finals are Saturday.

    “We’re going to win the girls,” Sampaio said before Wednesday’s practice at T.K. Stone.

    Are there any doubts the Lady Panthers, who have several No. 1 and No. 2 seeds according to the region’s pre-meet psych sheet, should defend?

  • PREP WRESTLING: Bruins hope to...

    Knowing this is Gary Canter’s last region tournament, Central Hardin wrestling coach Russ Pike wouldn’t mind seeing Canter’s LaRue County Hawks win the 2nd Region Tournament this weekend.

    But Pike admits he’d like his Bruins to play spoiler and keep the Hawks from winning their fourth straight title when the tournament begins at 7:30 tonight and continues at 10 a.m. Saturday at John Hardin’s Dawg Pound.

    It would be LaRue County’s 13th region title under Canter, who’s retiring after the season.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: John Hardin to...

    Not only is Bryan Todd looking forward to coaching at his alma mater, but the veteran John Hardin Lady Bulldogs coach is looking for another solid installment of the Duke’s Sporting Goods Valentine’s Shootout.

    The fifth-year event moves to East Hardin Middle School, where Todd graduated from in 1978, on Saturday and features a loaded schedule of five games.
