  • GIRLS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    Katie Lever didn’t think she was a good enough runner to attract the attention of a Division I school.

    Coaches at schools such as the University of Louisville, Murray State University and Western Kentucky University disagreed. After watching the John Hardin senior cross-country standout turn in a solid performance at the season-opening St. Xavier Tiger Run in August, coaches from those schools remained on Lever’s trail.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Hawks heavy...

    LaRue County’s quest for the school’s first state wrestling championship begins Saturday when the Region 2 Tournament is held at Danville High School.

    The top-ranked Hawks dominated during the regular season, when they went undefeated against in-state competition until a loss to No. 2 Union County in the championship of the State Duals.

  • BOYS' MIDDLE SCHOOL...

    Shooting horribly in front of their largest crowd of the season on the biggest stage against a higher-seeded “home” team they had already lost to didn’t seem like a recipe for success Thursday night for the third-seeded East Hardin Rebels.

    But Harrison Moore and Shane Oberdorf didn’t seem to mind all of those obstacles.

  • BOYS' MIDDLE SCHOOL...

    For three quarters Thursday night, it was Miller time.

    Then, in the fourth, the rest of J.T. Alton’s eighth-grade boys’ basketball team took turns shouldering the load against East Hardin, carrying the team and lifting the Trojans to the Middle School Athletic Conference tournament title at John Hardin.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Hull putting...

    Knowing this was his final season as a LaRue County wrestler, senior Shawn Hull wanted to put everything on the line.

  • SUPER BOWL: Elizabethtown and...

    When Eli Manning walked past Logan Hall in the downtown Indianapolis Marriott hotel, the 13-year-old Elizabethtown resident couldn’t believe his luck.

  • PARALYMPICS: Ogbe motivates...

    He grew up 1-of-12 children in a rural Nigerian area where running water was nonexistent and electricity was a luxury. At age 3, he contracted malaria and polio, which left his left leg paralyzed. For a shot at a better living, he left his family thousands of miles away to attend Bellarmine University and move to Louisville.

    However, the greatest obstacle the multi-time Paralympics gold medalist Dennis Ogbe has tackled is with him no matter where he goes or what he does.

  • 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.
