  • PREP FOOTBALL UPDATE: John...

    This wasn’t the OK Corral, but Joseph K. Ford Stadium saw a shootout Saturday night.

    After trailing by as many as eight in the first half, the John Hardin Bulldogs – ranked second in Class 5-A – rallied to take a seven-point halftime lead and they made it stand up with a 47-37 victory over the host Lexington Catholic Knights – ranked third in Class 4-A – in the Republic Bank Bluegrass Bowl.

    The teams combined for 921 yards of total offense in the back-and-forth affair.

  • PREP FOOTBALL UPDATE: Meade...

    Thomas Wilson and the Meade County Green Wave took out several years of frustration on the Bowling Green Greenwood Gators on Saturday night.

    Wilson accounted for more than 300 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead the Green Wave to a 45-14 win over Greenwood in the Joe Jaggers Bowl’s late game at North Hardin’s Ray Story Stadium.

    Meade County had never beaten Greenwood before Saturday, losing to the Gators four straight years after the teams became district rivals.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Albert's big...

    Two weeks into the season, the LaRue County Hawks are looking for a No. 3 option on offense. However, No. 45 is turning out to be a No. 1 type of playmaker on the other side of the ball.

    The Hawks’ dynamic senior backfield duo of Drew Newberry and Cody Thompson shined again at home Friday night, but it was 5-foot-8, 145-pound senior linebacker Taylor Albert who sparked LaRue County to a 27-24 win over the Shelby County Rockets with a fumble recovery that set up the winning touchdown and two sacks – including one to end the game.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Knox dealt a hard...

    MUNFORDVILLE — First-year Fort Knox coach Shawn Thompson was speechless after Friday’s game against the Hart County Raiders.

    And not in a good way.

  • PREP GOLF ROUNDUP: North Hardin...

    Lydia Gumm made waves last year when the North Hardin High School sophomore golf standout shot a jaw-dropping 61 to win the Kentucky Invitational Tournament at the par-70 Lakewood Country Club in Russell Springs for the fifth straight year.

    Jaws are going to drop again.

    The North Hardin junior duplicated her score Saturday as Gumm recorded her sixth straight KIT victory by eight strokes over Campbellsville’s Ellen Kehoe and Williamsburg’s Becky Sharpe.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Central...

    Senior Noah Wiersema had three goals and three assists as the 17th-ranked Central Hardin Bruins cruised to a 10-0 win in 40 minutes Saturday at 10th District rival Fort Knox.

    Sophomore Ryan Keeney added a team-high four assists for the Bruins (4-1 overall, 1-0 district), while freshman Zach Fonda scored twice.

    Junior Blake Foster and seniors Michael Bell, Jake Bunch, Bubba Sankey and Kyle Weiner scored one goal each. Senior Halen Pruitt and freshmen Alec Burgess and Cullen Duncan had one assist each.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL ROUNDUP: Lady...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks went 3-2 on Friday and Saturday to finish fourth in the Western Kentucky Smackdown volleyball tournament in Hopkinsville.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: No. 3...

    Abby Patterson put third-ranked Elizabethtown on the scoreboard at home Saturday night before Dani Wilson and Lexy Hazle put eighth-ranked Central Hardin away.

    Patterson broke open a scoreless back-and-forth game late in the first half when she headed in a questionable corner kick to give Elizabethtown the lead against the Lady Bruins before Wilson and Hazle both scored in the final 11 minutes as the Lady Panthers pulled away for a 3-0 win.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: North Hardin...

    North Hardin football coach Crad Jaggers’ new offensive scheme worked nearly as well as he envisioned.

    His defense – after a mid-game meltdown – came back to put on a fourth-quarter shutout with a knockout show.
