  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Nelson...

    BARDSTOWN — With the LaRue County Hawks geared up to stop one of the state’s most potent passing attacks, Ben Jones and the Nelson County Cardinals were content to run on them Friday night.

    Senior quarterback Dylan Beasley entered the game as the state’s leader in passing yards, so naturally the Hawks wanted to limit the damage the Cardinals could do through the air.

    That opened things up for Jones and sophomore running back Charlie Berry, who combined for three touchdowns as they led Nelson County to a 31-15 win.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Meade...

    Meade County ran away from Jeffersontown.

    Thanks to veteran coach Larry Mofield’s halftime switch, the Green Wave are off the schnide and don’t have to deal with a losing streak anymore.

    Junior running back Nick O’Brien rushed for 96 yards and a score and senior running back John Clark rushed for 92 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries in Meade County’s 32-13 homecoming win Friday night.

    Meade County (2-3) totaled 211 rushing yards and four TDs on the ground, giving the Green Wave 11 rushing touchdowns this season.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Central...

    The Central Hardin Bruins relied on their bend-but-don’t-break defense Friday and it didn’t let them down.

    With the North Hardin Trojans driving for a potential game-winning touchdown, junior Alex Thompson intercepted a pass on the Central Hardin 14 with 3:46 left and the Bruins picked up two first downs to secure a 24-21 victory at Ray Story Stadium.

    It was Central Hardin’s fourth consecutive victory over the Trojans. This is Central Hardin first group of seniors to go 4-0 against North Hardin.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE:...

    Apparently their performance against rival Nelson County was just a warm-up for the Bardstown Tigers’ trio Keano Young, Deion Tonge and Donshais Calbert. Their encore performance Friday night on the road against the Elizabethtown Panthers was perhaps more impressive.

    The threesome combined for 359 rushing yards and helped account for all of their team’s eight touchdowns as the unbeaten Tigers stormed past the battered and bruised Panthers, 55-20.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP:...

    Ties just keep piling up for the Meade County Green Wave.

    Senior defender Jacob Waldecker scored midway through the first half Thursday night, but the visiting Central Hardin Bruins notched the equalizer when sophomore midfielder Zach Fonda scored in the 68th minute as the former district rivals played to a 1-1 tie in Brandenburg.

    Waldecker scored off a throw in from senior midfielder Austin Lancaster, while Fonda’s goal was off an assist from sophomore midfielder Cullen Duncan.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue County...

    Entering the season, first-year LaRue County coach Josh Jaggers said the secondary would be the strength of his Hawks’ defense.

    He’ll need his cornerbacks and safeties to be strong tonight as the Hawks (2-2) hit the road to Bardstown to take on the pass-happy Nelson County Cardinals (1-3).

  • PREP CROSS COUNTRY: Central...

    With 24 teams and around 940 total runners flocking to the Hardin County Fairgrounds, Kris Mix and the Central Hardin cross country teams are prepared to host the biggest Central Hardin Invitational in recent memory.

    The girls’ varsity race is at 10 a.m.

    “This is going to be the biggest meet we’ve hosted in a while,” Mix said. “We’re ready. I think we run a meet that is friendly to middle and elementary runners, more so than perhaps the larger meets. And we’re also hosting region this year, so that’s a draw.”

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central Hardin...

    First-year Central Hardin volleyball coach Bill Rineker is spicing life up for the No. 11 Lady Bruins.

    They’ll face all new opponents tonight and Saturday in their 12-team Queens of the Court Invitational.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL ROUNDUP: Lady...

    Senior middle hitter Alneisha Butler and sophomore left-side hitter Lauren Christman combined for 14 kills to lead No. 11 Central Hardin to a 25-4, 25-4, 25-5 win over 17th District foe Fort Knox on Thursday.
