    Bo Wilson didn’t want January to end.

    The Meade County senior guard was on quite the tear during the month.

    Wilson hit five 3-pointers and scored 19 points to join Meade County’s 1,000-point club Tuesday night to lead the host Green Wave to a 71-59 win over the LaRue County Hawks.


    The John Hardin Bulldogs didn’t place too much emphasis on their second meeting with the Elizabethtown Panthers, but the outcome was much-needed.

    After losing five of their last six to Elizabethtown, the Bulldogs finally gained a measure of revenge as they pulled away in the second half for a 69-50 victory in a 17th District game Tuesday night at the Dawg Pound.


    After a tight first quarter, visiting Green County pulled away from 5th Region rival John Hardin to win for the eighth time in its last nine games Monday night.

    Leading 18-16, the Lady Dragons outscored the Lady Bulldogs by 20 points over the final 24 minutes for a 77-55 win.

    Sophomore post Nawdya Fletcher paced John Hardin (15-7) with 23 points and seven rebounds, while junior post Michelle Montgomery added 16 points and 13 rebounds.

    Sophomore guard Zacchea Small and junior wing Desireah Mills each scored seven points.

  • PREP BOWLING: Great balls of...

    Andrew Boyles remembers the times he’d go out to Dix-E-Town Lanes with his friends and he’d be happy if he broke 100.

    Those memories really aren’t so distant but now, the North Hardin High School senior gets a bit peeved if he doesn’t reach at least 140.


    Tonight’s matchup between the Elizabethtown Panthers and John Hardin Bulldogs might as well be billed as the battle of the boards.

  • ON CAMPUS: Dickerson records...

    Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology senior forward Alisa Dickerson, a former Elizabethtown High School standout, recorded her 23rd career double-double for the Engineers as they earned a 55-44 win Saturday in Cincinnati against Mount St. Joseph.

    Dickerson scored 21 points with a game-high 12 rebounds for Rose-Hulman.

  • PREP WRESTLING: LaRue County...

    The LaRue County Hawks’ quest for another State Duals wrestling championship started strong Saturday, but fizzled late.

    After rolling through their three pool-play matches and then their semifinal, the Hawks suffered a 39-23 loss to Union County in the championship of the annual 16-team tournament at Lexington Henry Clay High School.

    The final match began at 138 pounds and LaRue County led 23-15 after the heavyweights before getting blanked the rest of the final.


    John Hardin High School senior swimmer Dalton Hardesty has a serious competitive edge.

    Just ask his friend and practice teammate, Elizabethtown senior swimmer Emma Coakley.

    They don’t shy away from any challenges.

    Since they were 12 years old, the two have contested each other to a variety of duels – ranging from individual races to report card grades.

    Coakley used to own the water and dominate with her smarts. Five years later, Hardesty has started to curb that trend. He’s taking over and winning the pride battle.


    Juniors Brandon Price and Daveon Greene took control Saturday night and helped guide the John Hardin Bulldogs to a home win.

    Price and Greene finished with 28 points each to help John Hardin pick up a 79-71 victory over Shelbyville Collins.

    The Bulldogs (11-7) have won three of their last four games. They dominated this one early on, outscoring the Titans 23-9 in the second quarter to take a 45-24 halftime lead.

    John Hardin was outscored by Collins by 11 points in the third and two in the fourth but still hung on.
