    The Hawks (6-5) trailed 10-9 with less than 7 minutes remaining in the third quarter before outscoring the Redhounds 27-6 over the final 18:07. After outgaining LaRue County in offensive yards in the first half, 170-160, the Redhounds (5-6) managed just 109 yards on 24 plays.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Three...

    Three area seniors are first-team selections on the Kentucky Girls’ Soccer Coaches’ All-State Team, which was released Wednesday.

    Making the first team were Elizabethtown forward Lexy Hazle, Elizabethtown left wing Emily Richardson and Central Hardin goalkeeper Savannah Haberman.

    Hazle, a Bellarmine University commitment, scored a team-high 28 goals and recorded a team-best 23 assists as she led the Lady Panthers (17-6-2) to the 17th District and 5th Region tournament titles.

  • PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    The queen is ready to reclaim her throne.

    After a broken foot kept her from defending her Class 2-A, Region 2 championship last year, now-healthy Elizabethtown junior Hannah Godfrey is favored to win her second title in three years during Saturday morning’s meet at Ephram White Park in Bowling Green.

  • PREP CROSS COUNTRY: North's...

    Veteran North Hardin boys’ cross country coach James Jackson thinks Marcus Terrell is one of the area’s hottest runners over the last two weeks.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade's...

    Martel McCullough is fired up.

    During Wednesday’s practice at Hamilton Field, the Meade County senior had a couple of big hits on some of his teammates.

    McCullough said the Green Wave will need that intensity at 7:30 tonight when they take on the Louisville Southern Trojans in the first round of the Class 6-A playoffs.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Canter, Hawks...

    As a water boy for the LaRue County Hawks as a youngster, Caleb Canter remembers that sinking feeling when the team’s season came to an end at the expense of the Corbin Redhounds in the playoffs.

    From 2000-04, the Hawks and Redhounds had a fierce rivalry in the old Class 2-A. Corbin won four of those games, including a 21-0 win in 2002 that Hawk fans still haven’t forgotten.

    Neither has Canter. Now a senior, Canter is pumped for tonight’s 7:30 game with the Redhounds in the first round of the Class 3-A playoffs.
