  • PREP WRESTLING: Stepping out of...

    Like it or not, North Hardin sophomore Darrius Parrott knows people are always going to compare him to his older brother Marcell Haynes.

    The similarities are definitely there, but Parrott doesn’t want to spend his career in his brother’s shadow. He wants to carve a niche for himself and help lead the Trojans back to the success they experienced in the 1970s and ’80s.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Coming off a lopsided loss to 17th District rival Elizabethtown in which they were held scoreless in the first quarter, the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs came out flat Tuesday against the visiting Fort Knox Lady Eagles.

    Missed shots, bad passes and turnovers led John Hardin coach Bryan Todd to burn two timeouts in the first 3 minutes.

    But the Lady Bulldogs finally got things going behind junior post Michelle Montgomery, who scored a school-record 40 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead John Hardin to a 93-38 home win.

    John Hardin sophomore wing Tajah Haley could miss the rest of the season with what could be a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her knee.

    Haley suffered the injury Jan. 16 in a win over North Bullitt.

    “Obviously we’re going to miss Tajah a lot,” John Hardin coach Bryan Todd said after Tuesday’s win over Fort Knox. “When she was playing I told her, ‘Tajah, it starts with you.’ And that’s true with any point guard: everything starts with the point guard.”

    Lane eight.

    It’s likely the hardest lane for swimmers. That’s where they battle turbulent, wave-filled water and have to avoid having it mess with their minds.

    Seeded last in her heat in lane eight and stuck on the outside with all the water drafting to her, Erin Snider wasn’t supposed to contend for the 50-yard breaststroke title two weekends ago at the 10th annual Rock the Blocks meet in Louisville.
