  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN OPINION...

    When the basketball season began, John Hardin senior guard Jeremy Harness’ heart was in it. His head, on the other hand, was filled with everything except basketball.

    Harness’ dream of winning a state championship in football was dashed in horrific fashion. The Bowling Green Purples dismantled the Bulldogs, 62-20. It was a painful ending to such a brilliant prep football career, which saw Harness set numerous John Hardin records.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN: Pieces...

    Brandon Price and Jeremy Harness expected immediate results this season. Ervin Montgomery and Daveon Greene thought it might take some time. Coach Mark Wells kept preaching patience – to his players and himself.

    So when the John Hardin Bulldogs’ season got off to a rocky start, there was concern. Price and Harness, who both started last season, thought the Bulldogs would pick right up from the previous year when they went 22-4.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: First 16 in...

    LEXINGTON — Six of the 16 initial honorees in the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame were represented in Tuesday's tipoff news conference that introduced the concept statewide.

    A Lexington news conference on the eve of the KHSAA Boys' State Tournament outlined the Hall of Fame's mission and concept and also served as a chance to celebrate some of the game's brightest stars.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN: Hall...

    In most of Johnson Central’s contests, the young Golden Eagles’ game plan has been simple and effective: Get the ball to Shane Hall.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN OPINION...

    When John Hardin coach Mark Wells looks back at 2012 years from now, it will always hold a special place in his heart. It’s one of those years that will stand out personally and professionally.

    Earlier in the year, Wells and his wife, Kristi, found out they were expecting their second daughter. The couple has a daughter, Kiley, who just celebrated her second birthday in February.

  • BOYS' SWEET SIXTEEN: Greene...

    Despite his immense size and gaudy statistics, Daveon Greene is a relative newcomer not only to the John Hardin Bulldogs, but to the sport of basketball in general.

    Greene knew little about John Hardin and even less about the Bulldogs’ hardwood history before transferring from Ohio last April, less than a month after earning Division-II Southwest All-District special mention honors while playing for Bellbrook.

    Consider the 6-foot-2, 240-pound forward a quick learner.

  • GIRLS' GOLF: Gumm wins...

    Lydia Gumm didn’t have the best weekend on the links, but the North Hardin High School senior did just enough to win her second International Junior Golf Tour championship of the season.

    Gumm fired a two-day total of 156 (78-78) to win the IJGT Border Battle at Callaway Gardens Resort’s Mountain View course in Pine Mountain, Ga., on Sunday.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL SWEET...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs are going to the Boys’ Sweet Sixteen for only the second time in the program’s history. Their first-round opponent has been there more often, but not much.

    John Hardin (22-8) meets the Johnson Central Golden Eagles (25-10) at 8 p.m. Thursday at Rupp Arena in the final game of the first round. Getting back to the state tournament has been a huge goal for the Bulldogs since their first trip.

  • PREP BASEBALL ROUNDUP: Meade...

    Meade County got off to a hot offensive start in its season opener.

    Senior Bo Wilson went 3-for-5 and combined for a no-hitter with junior pitcher Jake Wilson on the mound Saturday afternoon as Meade County shut out Fort Knox, 16-0 in five innings.

    Meade County (1-0) scored eight runs in each of the first two innings en route to the blowout.

    Bo Wilson pitched the first three innings and recorded eight strikeouts, while Jake Wilson went the final two and had six strikeouts and walked one.

  • PREP BOWLING: Taylor County...

    Although they have little to do with offense in baseball or horse racing wins, the Taylor County Lady Cardinals completed a regular-season triple crown against their 2nd Region bowling rivals.
