  • PREP BASKETBALL: John Hardin...

    Tonight features a full slate of high school basketball games highlighted by a 17th District showdown between the North Hardin Lady Trojans and John Hardin Lady Bulldogs and three doubleheaders.
    The Lady Trojans (18-5) host John Hardin (18-6) tonight at 7:30. North Hardin sits in second place in the district at 4-2, while the Lady Bulldogs are in third at 4-3. The winner of this game wraps up the second seed for the district tournament although the teams are already locked into meeting again in the district semifinals.


    LEBANON — Because she plays alongside two NCAA Division-I signees who are considered five-star recruits by several ranking services, Marion County senior forward Logan Powell tends to get overshadowed playing for the top-ranked Lady Knights.

    But for the second time in as many meetings against the Lady Panthers, the Norfolk State signee showed she’s a legitimate star in her own right.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Wills is...

    In a match earlier this season, Trea Wills let his emotions get the best of him.

    Wills and Franklin County senior Roderick Ageyman were both disqualified from a 132-pound match at the Lexington Lafayette Invitational when they got into a scuffle.

    First-year North Hardin coach Joe Burroughs, obviously, was upset with his sen-ior. He knew Wills would be aggressive against Ageyman, but not that to extent.

  • PREP WRESTLING: The house that...

    After 23 years, 476 wins, five State Duals championships and countless other achievements, one coach’s legendary career is quickly coming to a close.

    LaRue County’s Gary Canter is retiring at season’s end, and the longtime coach and his family were honored prior to Wednesday’s dual against Oldham County.

    The usually reserved Canter couldn’t help but get a little teary eyed walking onto the mat with his family – wife D.J., son Caleb and daughter Hannah – by his side as fans and former wrestlers gave him a standing ovation.


    Last season, the John Hardin Bulldogs boys’ bowling team was able to count on their Lady Bulldog counterparts to root them on at State.

    That won’t be happening again next week. Because instead of playing the role of cheerleaders, the Lady Bulldogs will be competitors after they earned their first State berth by finishing second to Taylor County in the 2nd Region team tournament Tuesday at Dix-E-Town Lanes.


    The John Hardin Bulldogs boys’ bowling team made history and earned the respect of the region’s top team during Tuesday’s 2nd Region team tournament at Dix-E-Town Lanes.

    John Hardin became the first area team to earn a repeat state tournament trip by placing second to Taylor County for the second straight year.

    The Bulldogs showed they quickly have closed the gap on Taylor County, playing the Cardinals in the seeding qualifier within 43 pins (1,152-1,109).


    Senior guard Troy Squires led four players in double figures with 17 points as the visiting Central Hardin Bruins topped 17th District rival Fort Knox, 63-46 on Tuesday.

    Squires also had four assists and two steals for Central Hardin (9-10, 4-4 district), which will be the No. 3 seed in the district tournament. Senior guard Andy Kerr chipped in with 12 points, two assists and two steals, while senior forward Cody Elmore had 11 points and two assists.

    Senior guard Alex Crowder added 10 points, six rebounds and five steals.


    When John Hardin coach Mark Wells called a timeout less than a minute into the second half, he challenged his team to start playing with more effort and energy.

    John Hardin senior point guard Brandon Price heard Wells’ message loud and clear even though he said it shouldn’t have come to that.
