  • GOLF: ECC to host benefit for...

    Elizabethtown Country Club PGA professional and general manager Gary Manes wanted a special group to honor for its annual two-man tournament.

    After one of the club’s members was touched by some reading, the group found a charity that hit close to its hearts and the area’s home.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin,...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs realize the importance of tonight’s game versus perennial power Boyle County. At the same time, in the grand scheme of things, it’s just another game on a 10-game regular season schedule.

    The Bulldogs, who host the Rebels tonight at 7:30, are approaching this game as the most important game because it’s the one at hand. But it’s hard not to have some extra motivation. The Rebels are ranked second in Class 4-A and have won five state championships in the last decade.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Both North...

    Junior Elijah Linscott and senior Darren Lewis each scored to lead the host North Hardin Trojans to a 2-0 win over Warren Central on Thursday.

    Sophomore Justin Musselman had the assist on Linscott’s goal in the first half.

    Junior keeper Tyler Malcolm made seven saves as North Hardin (7-2) outshot Warren Central, 15-8.

    UP NEXT: North Hardin plays Boone County at 10 a.m. and Campbell County at 4:30 p.m. Saturday in the John Hardin Bulldog Challenge.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL ROUNDUP:...

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers won their second match in a row with a 25-22, 25-11 win over 17th District rival Fort Knox on Thursday.

    Junior Kate Hula led the Lady Panthers (12-2 overall, 4-1 district) with five kills and four aces, while junior Brittany Stokan had three kills and one ace.

    Sophomore Ashley Clement added two kills.

    No statistics were available for Fort Knox (1-9, 0-5), which lost its third straight.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue County...

    If a humbling loss at Spencer County last week was the frying pan for the LaRue County Hawks, then tonight’s road game with the Green County Dragons is definitely the fire for outgoing coach Rodney Armes.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Central...

    After being anything but offensive their previous two games, the Central Hardin Bruins could have spent the week before their next outing focusing on finishing.

    Their scoring woes looked like they could continue at home Thursday night, but once the 21st-ranked Bruins got back on track against the Elizabethtown Panthers, not much could derail them.

    The Bruins broke away from a deadlocked game late in the first half with a flurry of goals and emerged with a rousing 7-2 win in a rematch of last year’s 10th District and 5th Region tournament finals.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Lady Bruins...

    Three weeks ago, John Hardin gave Central Hardin’s volleyball team a scare in the opening set.

    This time, the Lady Bruins put the Lady Bulldogs down without much of a whimper.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    For the record, the name of the North Oldham Mustangs’ star running back is Zach Evans, not Bob. But unless the Elizabethtown Panthers finally figure out a way to stop the run, Elizabethtown’s Doug Smith Memorial Stadium might as well be Evans’ big red farmhouse when the increasingly familiar rivals clash again at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

    Evans, a senior halfback, is coming off a 158-yard, two-touchdown effort in last week’s 43-14 thrashing of visiting Christian Academy-Louisville to up his season totals to 334 yards and six touchdowns on just 34 carries.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins get '...

    The Central Hardin Bruins realize what’s at stake this week. The Bruins are off to a 2-0 start, posting impressive wins over inferior teams – or at least Central Hardin made those teams look that way.

    But Friday night, the Bruins play at Louisville Butler (1-1). It’s Central Hardin’s first game against a Class 6-A opponent this season and the eighth-ranked Bruins understand this game will be used as a measuring stick to see if they’re as good as their ranking and record say.

  • OPINION: Locals live out MLB...

    Last year at this time, Hardin County didn’t have a single player in Major League Baseball. And it looked like it might be some time before that changed.

    Nathan Adcock was just finishing a season in high Class-A with the Bradenton Marauders, a Pittsburgh Pirates affiliate. Stevie Delabar was out of baseball after another serious arm injury.
