  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Even with a runaway 17th District win, the North Hardin Lady Trojans didn’t provide maximum effort.

    First-year coach Chris Corder thought they were too lackluster and players agreed. They’re learning that having a strong mental game is just as important as talent.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    With a 22-point halftime lead over 18th District rival Hart County, the LaRue County Hawks hit a lull and went ice cold coming out of the locker room Friday night.

    Settling for long jump shots and 3-pointers, the Hawks were held scoreless for nearly 5 minutes after halftime. Veteran coach Paul Childress burned two timeouts in that span, and got on his players for not executing the game plan.

    The Hawks responded with an 18-8 run to close the third quarter en route to an 81-53 win over the visiting Raiders.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The Bardstown Tigers had a hard time Friday night in Radcliff with John Hardin’s new big Greene monster.

    The visiting Tigers countered with a big game from one of their smallest players.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The scouting report LaRue County coach Travis Wootton drew up for the Hart County Lady Raiders was a simple one: keep tabs on senior guards Lexee Wilson, Jordan Strother and Leah Burd.

    Task not accomplished.

    Burd, Wilson and Strother combined to hit six 3-pointers as the visiting Lady Raiders knocked off 18th District rival LaRue County, 52-32 on Friday night.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The Elizabethtown Panthers started off 17th District play on the right foot.

    The Panthers outscored the Central Hardin Bruins, 16-6 in the third quarter and then held on for a 55-46 victory Friday night in a district game on Central Hardin’s Terry Buckles Court.

    Elizabethtown (2-2 overall, 1-0 in district) was led by senior Jansen Flood with 17 points, seven rebounds and three assists. Sophomore guard Bryce Byrd added 12 points, while sophomore guard Nic McDonald had 10 points, six rebounds and three assists.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Five locals to...

    Five local football seniors have been selected to play in the Best of the Bluegrass All-Star football game.

    The game pits players from the Greater Louisville Football Coaches Association against players from the rest of the state. The game replaced the annual All-Star game between players from Kentucky and Tennessee. The game will be Sunday at 2 p.m. at Louisville St. Xavier High School.

  • BASEBALL: Delabar, Adcock to...

    Stevie Delabar and Nathan Adcock both have reached the Major Leagues, but both still want to help the community where they got their baseball careers started.

    The Players Dugout will host a youth Velocity seminar at 3 p.m. Sunday. Delabar, a Seattle Mariners pitcher, and Adcock, a Kansas City Royals pitcher, will be in attendance and discuss the program and how it’s benefitted them. The seminar is free, but attendees should bring a folding chair with them.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Bruins to receive...

    Central Hardin baseball coach Todd Thompson has had plenty of time to think about what the Bruins accomplished last season when they won the KHSAA state tournament.

    “I’ve had time to reflect back on the year as a whole, and it was just a special year,” Thompson said. “It was a special group of boys.”

    The Bruins will be back together tonight for the first time since July. They won the championship in June and they returned to Whitaker Bank Ballpark in July for a special ceremony prior to a Lexington Legends game.
