  • BOYS' MIDDLE SCHOOL...

    Bluegrass coach David Jenkins thought his team overachieved a bit last season when the Colts lost to East Hardin in the Middle School Athletic Conference’s seventh-grade boys’ basketball tournament at John Hardin.

    One year later, there’s not much more the season Colts could have achieved.

    Three Bluegrass players scored 13 points or more on Thursday night as the top-seeded Colts capped off their record-breaking perfect season with a convincing 50-25 rout of the second-seeded Rebels in the MSAC seventh-grade final at West Hardin.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin'...

    John Hardin senior Domonick Brown imagined this day countless of times, but when it finally arrived, the emotion of it still swept him off his feet.

    Brown, a 6-foot, 240-pound linebacker, capped a magical high school career when he signed a national letter of intent to play at Eastern Kentucky on Wednesday morning in front of family and friends.

  • PREP BOWLING: Area trio hoping...

    There are three area individuals competing today in the second Ebonite/KHSAA Bowling State Individual Championships at Louisville’s Executive Lanes. And wouldn’t you know it, the only one with a past State history is the one who is the least at ease.

    “I am really nervous,” said North Hardin senior Kawika Glover. “There are a lot more expectations going in as the region champ.”

    Glover finished 23rd out of 32 at State last year, rolling games of 183, 191 and 195 to miss the quarterfinals by 77 pins.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: John...

    She didn’t realize it at the time, but Shiann Washington made history Wednesday afternoon when the John Hardin senior signed a national letter of intent to play women’s soccer on the NCAA Division-I level for Morehead State University.

    Although she only played one season for John Hardin – she started as a freshman and sophomore at North Hardin and sat out her junior season due to KHSAA transfer requirements – Washington became the first D-I signee in the Lady Bulldogs’ 12-season history.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: E'...

    It didn’t take long for Emily Richardson to fall in love with the University of Evansville.

    After taking a visit to the college in the fall, the Elizabethtown senior knew Evansville was where she wanted to spend the next four years of her life.

    Richardson was also considering Morehead State and a few other in-state schools, but knew Evansville was the place for her.

  • PREP WRESTLING: LaRue's...

    Being the son of a coach can be tough. It can have its perks, but everything isn’t always peachy keen between father and son.

    Just ask LaRue County senior 170-pounder Caleb Canter (45-0), the son of Hall of Fame wrestling coach Gary Canter.

    If the Hawks don’t do something correctly in practice, Caleb is the one who typically feels the brunt of his dad’s frustration. Even if it’s not him who’s messing up, Caleb is usually the one getting chastised.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    Junior center Zacchea Small’s double-double helped the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs match the school record for wins with a 56-52 victory over 5th Region foe Caverna on Tuesday.

    Small had 14 points, 10 rebounds and four steals for John Hardin (19-7), which can break the record with a win Saturday. Senior post Michelle Montgomery chipped in with 12 points and seven rebounds, while junior guard Tajah Haley had 12 points and eight assists.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    Troy Squires went from ice-cold to red-hot Tuesday night.

    After missing his first three 3-pointers against the visiting Adair County Indians, the Central Hardin senior guard buried each of his next seven tries from behind the arc to lead the Bruins to a 67-41 win over their 5th Region rival.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin...

    After failing to win the 5th Region Softball Tournament in 2012, the Central Hardin Lady Bruins are fully expected to go back to the state tournament this year.

    When a statewide coaches’ poll was released Monday, the Lady Bruins found themselves at the top of the 5th Region preseason rankings.

    While that was news to Central Hardin coach Jamie Goodman, it wasn’t entirely unexpected.

  • 2ND REGION WRESTLING TOURNAMENT...

    With four No. 1 seeds under their belts, the LaRue County Hawks are locked and loaded for a run at their fourth consecutive 2nd Region Wrestling Tournament title.

    The draw was held Sunday at host John Hardin. The tournament starts at 7:30 Friday night with the first two rounds. It resumes at 10 a.m. Saturday with the finals later that night. Admission is $7 per person each day.
