    For the first quarter Monday night, the Meade County Lady Waves had high hopes of knocking off former 17th District rival Elizabethtown.

    Freshman guard Raley Johnson hit 4-of-6 3-pointers to spark the homestanding Lady Waves to a one-point lead at the end of the period.

    Then, just like coach Josh Hurt predicted in the preseason, Meade County’s inexperience began to show. Elizabethtown outscored the Lady Waves, 25-15 in the second quarter and pulled away in the second half on its way to a 78-55 victory in both teams’ season opener.

  • OPINION: Basketball season has a...

    The 2010 high school football season concluded Friday night. And what a season it was.

    The John Hardin Bulldogs reached the Class 5-A state semifinals for a third consecutive season. It was another stellar season as the Bulldogs went 13-1. The Central Hardin Bruins set a school record for wins, won a playoff game for the first time since 1997 and ended up 9-3. The North Hardin Trojans were back in the playoffs, while the Elizabethtown Panthers made a late charge.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: Hoops season...

    Area high school basketball coaches have had six weeks to get their teams ready for the 2010-11 season and now they’ll get to see the fruits of their labor.

    The high school season gets under way with four games tonight and four more Tuesday night. Tonight’s slate includes two girls’ games – Elizabethtown at Meade County at 7:30 and North Hardin at Hart County at 8 – and a Fort Knox-Caverna girl/boy doubleheader.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: North's...

    The season isn’t beginning the way the defending 5th Region champion North Hardin Trojans envisioned.

    The Trojans, who finished last season 27-5, were one of the preseason favorites to win the region, but they were dealt a major loss Saturday night when junior point guard Jermaine Ruttley went down with possibly a season-ending injury.

    “That’s a pretty big blow to take,” North Hardin coach Ron Bevars said.

  • GIRLS' MIDDLE SCHOOL...

    LEXINGTON — The T.K. Stone Lady Panthers made Patty Lucas’ return to the bench a memorable experience.

    Tournament MVP Erin Boley scored 15 points and Darien Huff had seven as the Lady Panthers beat Somerset Southern, 43-36 on Saturday to win the Kentucky Basketball Academy’s Eighth-Grade Girls’ Basketball Tournament championship at Rupp Arena.

    In her first game back since the death of her mother, Mary Lou Rogers Todd, Lucas was perfectly content letting Elizabethtown High School coach Tim Mudd continue coaching her team.

  • Bulldog fans

    John Hardin students and fans filled Bulldog Stadium on a freezing Friday night to cheer on the Bulldogs as they played Christian County in the Class 5-A state semifinal. Heavy jackets and blankets were a neccisity as the temperatures dropped below 30-degrees with a slight breeze. As the Dawgs fell behind, the mood of the crowd turned blue also and not from just the weather. Some stayed to the bitter end while others kept cheering. Here are a few scenes from the event.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bulldogs can...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs treaded water for most of the first three quarters Friday night.

    Despite a shaky start which saw John Hardin fall behind 6-0, the Bulldogs rallied to build a 14-6 halftime lead, and then managed to grab a 20-19 lead with 3:20 left in the third quarter after the Christian County Colonels reeled off 13 consecutive points to start the second half.

    But then the flood gates opened and John Hardin was swarmed under by a wave of big plays by the Colonels.

  • BOYS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    North Hardin senior Andrew Stewart has dominated the area cross country scene for the last three years.

    In that same time frame, he’s also dominated the voting for Runner of the Year on the All-Area Boys’ Cross Country Team.

    Stewart once again was a unanimous pick for the award, garnering all six possible first-place votes for the maximum 30 points. Stewart was a unanimous selection for the third straight year.
