    Being the coach of the second-ranked team in Class 3-A and hosting the Region 2 meet, veteran North Hardin coach James Webb was under a lot of stress Friday night.

Second, I hoped my athletes performed to their abilities and made it to State as we expected.”

    After moving to Hardin County prior to their junior years, two former prep track stars took the area – and the state – by storm.

    But it’s their head-to-head races that still have people talking.
