    The John Hardin Bulldogs have recorded one big road win against a 17th District rival this week. Tonight, they head to Ron Bevars Gymnasium in attempt to double their fun against the North Hardin Trojans.

    John Hardin is coming off a thrilling 64-63 win Tuesday night in which the Bulldogs (16-2 overall, 6-1 district) blew an 11-point advantage and a last-minute lead against the Elizabethtown Panthers only to get it back and hold on after a pair of free throws from senior forward Blake Bonner.

    Despite having a horrible night at the free-throw line and turning the ball over 16 times, the visiting Hart County Lady Raiders still had a shot to knock off 5th Region foe Elizabethtown on Wednesday night.

    Elizabethtown senior guards Natalie Greenwell and Hannah Hart would have none of it.

    After halftime, Greenwell scored 13 of her 15 points and Hart scored 10 of her 12 to lead the fourth-ranked Lady Panthers to a 55-44 victory at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin'...

    Jeff Richard was all-smiles Wednesday afternoon, which is pretty fitting considering the John Hardin High School senior plans to focus on straightening out smiles once his football career comes to a close and his orthodontic career opens.

    He’s not ready to give up his gridiron days just yet, confirming this much by signing a national letter of intent with Murray State University while decked out in a yellow dress shirt, gold tie and navy blue Racers ball cap.

    Keeping Kentucky players in state for their college careers was little more than an afterthought for Western Kentucky University’s former coaching staff.

    That changed once prodigal son Willie Taggart returned from Stanford to take over his alma mater.

    “We are going to recruit (Kentucky) first and foremost, and then we are going to Florida,” Taggart recently told The Louisville Courier-Journal. He is a Florida native.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Central's...

    Central Hardin football coach Mike Lawson thinks the University of Louisville coach Charlie Strong got a recruiting steal in senior kicker John Wallace.

    Wallace, who verbally committed to Louisville on April 27, signed his national letter of intent Wednesday afternoon in the Central Hardin library.

    “He’s as good as anybody in the state, and as good as anybody that’s come out of here in the last five to 10 years,” Lawson said. “He’s only going to get better. He’s got a tremendous upside.”

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Even with a 25-point halftime lead, Central Hardin coach David Robbins still thought the Lady Bruins weren’t showing enough defensive intensity.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    In less than a minute Tuesday night, Blake Bonner morphed from goat to hero.

    After committing a turnover that allowed the Elizabethtown Panthers to take a one-point lead, the John Hardin senior forward hit the tying and go-ahead free throws with 32.7 seconds left and the Bulldogs made the foul shots stand up  in their 64-63 road win against their 17th District rival.

    “I was like, I gotta get the ball back for my team. I messed up,” said Bonner, who had 11 points and a team-high seven rebounds.
