    Adelaide Luckett thinks Elizabethtown is making progress.

    The Lady Panthers’ defense surely did in Friday night’s physical 17th District game.


    Jordan Daniel didn’t have the best shooting night Thursday night. But the Central Hardin senior guard hit a clutch shot when her team needed it most.

    With the visiting Lady Bruins leading by four with less than 3 minutes left, Daniel calmly sank a 3-pointer from the right wing to push the lead to seven and Central Hardin held on for a 53-42 over John Hardin in a crucial 17th District game at the Dawg Pound.


    North Hardin put the basketball in the hands of its steady point guard.

    And everyone got out of Trevino Coney’s way – Elizabethtown players included.

    With his team down by a point, Coney found a hole in the defense, drove the length of the court and hit a game-winning layup with 3.3 seconds left to lift visiting North Hardin to a 77-76 victory over 17th District rival Elizabethtown.

    Coney stayed patient and went to work.


    The John Hardin Bulldogs continue to live on the edge. No one can seem to get them off it.

    The Bulldogs trailed by 12 in the first half Thursday night before rallying in the second half. They overcame poor free throw shooting down the stretch and held off a furious Central Hardin comeback to post a 51-48 victory in a 17th District game at the Dawg Pound.

  • DRAG RACING: Rineyville's...

    Drag racing is in Andy Warren’s blood.

    He grew up watching his dad and older brother, John Sr. and John Jr., competing in races, and waiting for his time to get behind the wheel.

    When he was old enough to drive, Warren got his chance.

    Seventeen years later, Warren is starting to taste success. Warren, 32, wrapped up his second consecutive National Muscle Car Association class title at the Nostalgia Muscle Car World Finals in St. Louis in December.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: Snow shifts...

    Tuesday’s snowfall made it easy to figure out who had a high school basketball game that night – nobody.

    All seven games on the docket were cancelled, and some teams didn’t wait long to reschedule.

    The North Hardin boys, who have had two of their last three games snowed out, will play at Elizabethtown at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. On Friday, the North Hardin girls play at Elizabethtown.

  • Ex-Kentucky player Krebs lives...

    Mark Krebs watched his mother, Terri, battle breast cancer for nearly a decade. She went through 390 chemotherapy treatments and seven surgeries before succumbing to the illness in June.

    Doctors gave her nine months. She fought for nine years.

    Now Krebs, a former University of Kentucky men’s basketball player, is spreading his family’s message with his own book, “Beyond A Dream.” And he hopes he hit home with some Elizabethtown residents Tuesday afternoon at Barnes & Noble.

    Families stay together – no matter what.


    After his team lost a game he thought it should have won Friday night, veteran Elizabethtown coach James Haire wondered how his Panthers would rebound Saturday when they hit the road to take on a Daviess County squad that started 11-0.

    Closer to home Saturday, longtime North Hardin coach Ron Bevars was looking for his Trojans to stay competitive in the 17th District race with a visit to Fort Knox.


    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.”


    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.
