  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Unlike more than 250 teams in the state, the John Hardin Bulldogs’ record is still perfect, even though two upperclassmen and second-year coach Mark Wells note that their on-court play has been anything but perfect.

    “I knew that we could be good, but I didn’t know that we could be this good,” said junior guard Jeremy Harness, whose 15th-ranked Bulldogs (12-0 overall, 3-0 district) are one of only two unbeaten teams left in Kentucky. “I knew that if everyone came in and played together, we could be good.”

  • PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Nichols...

    Senior guard Matt Nichols converted a three-point play and the homestanding Central Hardin Bruins came up with two steals in the final 12 seconds to hold on for a 52-51 Monday night win over 5th Region rival Marion County.

    Trailing 51-50 after the Knights took the lead with about 25 seconds left, Nichols (16 points) hit a jump shot and free throw to put the Bruins (6-6) ahead.

    Senior forward Austin Barnett chipped in with 14 points, seven rebounds and four steals, while junior forward Andrew Kinney had 10 points, four rebounds and three assists.

    Jauan Akins showed that you can go home again. And he had a swell time doing it Saturday.

    Matt Nichols is a firm believer that the best things in life – OK, high school hoops – are indeed, free.

    The Central Hardin senior guard scored 11 of his game-high 25 points from the foul line in the final 8 minutes Friday and junior forward Andrew Kinney buried a game-best four 3-pointers, as the host Bruins held off the visiting Elizabethtown Panthers, 58-52, in a critical and slow-moving 17th District contest.

  • PREP WRESTLING: LaRue County,...

    The LaRue County Hawks are considered the team to beat yet again in Region 2, but coach Gary Canter readily admits there are still things his team can improve on.

    There wasn’t much fault to be found Friday and Saturday, however.

    With very few miscues, the Hawks went 4-0 in the Region 2 Duals at John Hardin to lock up the region’s top seed for the upcoming Kentucky Wrestling Coaches’ Association State Duals.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks appeared to be on their way to an easy victory Friday night, but the Green County Lady Dragons had other plans.

    The homestanding Lady Hawks led most of the third quarter by double digits, but Green County made it interesting before LaRue County pulled out a 47-40 victory to remain in the hunt for the No. 1 seed in the 18th District.

    Leading by just one point at halftime, John Hardin outscored Meade County by 20 points in the third quarter as the Bulldogs rolled to a 67-41 win.
