    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).

    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.

    After being the bridesmaid a couple of times, Taylor County junior Megan Hedgespeth was finally a bowling bride Monday afternoon.

    Having finished second last year in both the 2nd Region Tournament in Campbellsville and the KHSAA State Tournament in Louisville, Hedgespeth earned some redemption Monday when she dominated the 28-player girls’ individual division of the region tournament at Dix-E-town Lanes.

    Hedgespeth entered the eight-player semifinals with a 151-pin lead and finished the semifinals with a 147-pin hold on the No. 1 seed.

    Even when qualifying for the four-player boys’ stepladder playoffs looked dire Monday afternoon at Dix-E-Town Lanes, North Hardin senior Kawika Glover never lost hope during the 2nd Region Bowling Tournament.

    Sitting next to last entering the eight-player two-game semifinals, Glover finally caught fire with a 255 in the opener – third-highest in the 100 total boys’ games. He followed it up with a 178 to earn the No. 3 seed, and more importantly, 1-of-4 spots in next week’s state tournament in Louisville.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Hawks'...

    Having spent the majority of his life in Ohio, Gary Canter was surprised when a teaching job in Kentucky came his way.

    It was 1985 and Canter had just earned his teaching degree. He didn’t know much about Hodgenville, but was happy to finally get a chance to be a teacher. So he and his wife D.J. packed up and headed south.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    North Hardin senior guard Nick Lewis might not enjoy the anxious moments when he finds his team trailing, but Lewis and his teammates don’t mind the end result.

    Lewis and the Trojans are making a habit of earning come-from-behind victories this season and they did it again Monday night. Trailing by nine at halftime, North Hardin rallied to take a third-quarter lead en route to a 51-48 victory over the Central Hardin Bruins in a 17th District game at Ron Bevars Gymnasium.
