  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    HARNED — With 23 seconds left and his team down one Friday night at 11th District rival Breckinridge County, Meade County coach Jerry Garris called a timeout and designed a play to get the ball into the hands of his son, junior guard Chase Garris.

    Garris got the ball as planned, but Breckinridge County senior guard Timmy Tucker came up with a steal with less than 8 seconds remaining. After getting the ball past midcourt, however, the Fighting Tigers were called for an over-and-back.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Draw could be...

    LaRue County wrestling coach Gary Canter knows how important it is to get drawn into a good pool at the Kentucky Wrestling Coaches’ Association State Duals.

    But with what he feels is one of the strongest fields the event has had in quite some time, there may not be such a thing as a good draw.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Having lost 3-of-4 entering Thursday night’s 17th District game at Fort Knox, John Hardin coach Bryan Todd wanted his Lady Bulldogs to turn up their defensive intensity.

    The Lady Bulldogs did, as they held the Lady Eagles without a field goal until late in the fourth quarter en route to a 72-13 win.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    After watching their 13-game winning streak come to an end last week, senior guard Malcolm Foster and the John Hardin Bulldogs came to Fort Knox with a little chip on their shoulders.

    The Eagles couldn’t knock it off.

    Foster scored a game-high 26 points and senior forward Blake Bonner added 15 to lead the visiting Bulldogs to an 88-50 win over Fort Knox in a 17th District game.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: North Hardin...

    The surging North Hardin Trojans are hoping for another 17th District win in the present tonight, but before they host the Central Hardin Bruins, they’ll look to the past.

    Prior to the 6 p.m. scheduled tip-off of the first game of the girl/boy doubleheader, former North Hardin standout center Jason Eitutis will have his jersey retired in the gymnasium named for his coach, Ron Bevars.

  • PREP WRESTLING: From motormouth...

    Shaquille Cox learned at a young age it’s not good to be boastful.

    Cox admitted he sometimes bragged about himself when he was in middle school, but his attitude quickly changed as soon as he got to high school.

    Because of that, the 140-pound LaRue County senior has become one of the top wrestlers in the state. Cox is ranked fifth in his weight class, and sports a 22-1 record entering Saturday’s Kentucky Wrestling Coaches’ Association State Duals at Lexington Henry Clay.
