    Because she’s projected to be a defender in college, senior Emily Richardson wanted Elizabethtown Lady Panthers coach Jerry Crabtree to move the wing to defense this season.

    But after another standout offensive game Wednesday night, Richardson’s backline experiment appears to have gone up in smoke.

    Richardson recorded a hat trick in a 22-minute span, while fellow senior Maddie Conway was involved in the Lady Panthers’ first three goals as No. 10 Elizabethtown cruised to a 10-0 win at 17th District rival North Hardin.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central Hardin...

    Apparently, time was of the essence Tuesday night for Central Hardin and the 15th-ranked Lady Bruins didn’t waste much of it continuing their mastery of a 17th District rival.

    Coming off a long but highly successful weekend in the Bluegrass Invitational at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington, the Lady Bruins returned to the area and needed just 51 minutes – that’s including six timeouts – to beat the host John Hardin Lady Bulldogs in straight sets, 25-7, 25-8, 25-6.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    In the win column for the first time in 13 games, the Elizabethtown Panthers didn’t get much rest – overall or on their laurels – Saturday following their 23-15 rally past the visiting Fort Knox Eagles the night before in the Panthers’ season-opener.

    Five turnovers, one big defensive miscue and upward of a dozen penalties showed the Panthers were far from perfect.

  • BASEBALL: The Players'...

    Steve Delabar has had a swift rise from substitute teach to Major League pitcher, and it has created a quite a whirlwind for Joe Newton.

    Newton, the owner of The Players’ Dugout, has been involved with Jamie Evans developing the Velocity program which Delabar used to relaunch his baseball career after a serious injury to his right elbow.

    Delabar was featured on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel on March 20. The show generated plenty of buzz about the throwing program and has led to people from across the country calling Newton.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin'...

    The strength of the John Hardin Bulldogs was supposed to be their defense this season, but through a scrimmage and one game, the defense has been shaky to say the least.

    Meanwhile, the offense, which has nine new starters, was expected to struggle at the start of the year. But that hasn’t been the case as the Bulldogs put up 41 points in their scrimmage and 44 against Lexington Henry Clay in the season opener.
