  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: 2012 All...

    Elijah Linscott led the North Hardin Trojans to new heights this season and he was rewarded handsomely for his efforts.

    The North Hardin senior center midfielder was voted Offensive Player of the Year on the annual The News-Enter-prise/Coaches’ All-Area Boys’ Soccer Team after he helped the Trojans (19-7) sweep the 17th District and 5th Region Tournament titles and earn a berth in the KHSAA State Tournament quarterfinals.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin may...

    The John Hardin program has churned out a number of quality linebackers. But Linebacker High has never had a collective unit like it does this season.

    This group has everything a coaching staff wants. It has size, speed and a nose for the ball, delivering a big hit once one of them gets there.

    “It may overall be the best we’ve had,” John Hardin coach Mark Brown said. “They’re playing as good right now as they have all year. We’ve got a solid group. We have a solid top five.”

  • PREP WRESTLING: Knox faces a...

    Unlike the motto in the popular Hunger Games series, veteran Fort Knox coach Jarvis Cullen doesn’t think the odds will be in his team’s favor this season.

    With only two wrestlers back from last season, the Eagles are going to face a rebuilding year unlike any other in Cullen’s tenure.

    Rebuilding years are nothing new at Fort Knox, but Cullen said none have been this drastic.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Expectations...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs want to raise expectations in Mike Mitchell’s second year in charge of the program. And with higher goals in mind, the Bulldogs are more confident.

    Returning nearly every wrestler from last season will do that for a team.

    In all, John Hardin has 17 wrestlers back – including 12 varsity starters.

    “I expect continued growth as we experienced success last year,” Mitchell said. “We have a lot of experience coming back this year and I want to grow on that experience.”

  • PREP WRESTLING: Hawks starting...

    Heading into what he has said is his final year of coaching, LaRue County’s Gary Canter feels like Bill Murray in the movie “Groundhog Day.”

    Just like Murray’s character waking up to Sonny and Cher singing “I Got You Babe” each morning and repeating the day over and over, the Hawks almost have to start over from scratch every day because of so many newcomers.

    “Practice has been like that movie,” Canter said. “We have had so many newcomers come and go, it feels like we are starting over every day.”

  • PREP WRESTLING: Bruins loaded...

    In his ninth year guiding his alma mater’s wrestling team, Central Hardin coach Russ Pike has 10 reasons to believe the Bruins can contend for the Region 2 title this season.

    With 10 upperclassmen returning, the Bruins are oozing with experience.

    And they’re a pretty talented bunch, to boot. With that combination, Pike has set some lofty – yet very attainable goals – for the Bruins.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bulldogs seeing...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs realize Friday will be the biggest night in the history of the program.  They’ve had this date circled for almost 365 days after last year’s embarrassing 62-20 loss to Bowling Green in the Class 5-A semifinals.


    Mavi Sampaio is just as confident, if not more, that the Elizabethtown girls can win another Region 3 title.

    With all the depth returning, their coach thinks they’re headed for a repeat.


    Coming off a second-place finish at the Region 3 Championship, Elizabethtown took a big hit with the graduation.
