  • PREP WRESTLING: Every team is...

    As the 2nd Region Wrestling Tournament draw meeting wrapped up Sunday afternoon, one thing was abundantly clear: every team – yet again – is chasing the LaRue County Hawks.

    Third-ranked LaRue County received eight No. 1 seeds for the 10-team tournament that begins at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at Central Hardin’s Bruin Gym. Finals are scheduled to start at 6 p.m.

    The Hawks are vying for their third consecutive title. They won nine straight from 1999-2007; John Hardin won back-to-back titles in 2008-09.

  • PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: North...

    Senior De’Angelo Hicks also had a double-double (10 points, 16 rebounds) for the Falcons, who improved to 19-2. Sophomore Carlos Jones added eight points and freshman Javon Cotton had seven.

  • PREP SWIMMING: E'town girls...

    VERSAILLES — It’s not like Elizabethtown coach Mavi Sampaio has high expectations for his Lady Panthers in this weekend’s 3rd Region Championships.

    He only expects his team to finish in the top two with host Woodford County.

    “Oh, yeah, I definitely think we can do that. Why not go for first?” Elizabethtown senior Emma Coakley said during a break in practice Wednesday at T.K. Stone Middle School. “Right now the top team is Woodford County for the girls, but we were close to them last time.”

  • SWIMMING: Giles sisters on...

    Sisters Casey and Jesse Giles swim for the same club. They don’t think that’s strange because Elizabethtown’s Dolphin Swimming has plenty of siblings on its ever-growing roster.

    Most everyday after school, the sisters travel to T.K. Stone Middle School for Dolphins practice. They’ll talk about what they had for lunch, homework, funny things said by the lockers between classes and other such things. After practice, they might go get something to eat and then go home.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    To ensure you have a room at a swank hotel or a table at a nice restaurant, sometimes a long-term reservation is in order.

    To play in a quality girls’ basketball event such as the Duke’s Sporting Goods Valentine’s Classic at John Hardin is apparently no different.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Adelaide Luckett doesn’t look at the last two weeks as a grueling schedule for her team. Instead, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ standout senior forward looks at the slate as a measuring stick.

    In a 10-day span, Luckett and her teammates have played or will play the reigning 5th Region Tournament champion, the defending state tournament champion and the second-ranked team in the state, which just so happens to have a player good enough to say no to Connecticut.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: UK's Coyle...

    While basketball and football command attention, the University of Kentucky athletics department is much more.

    As an example, Kentucky’s deputy athletic director relayed a story about his boss while addressing Thursday’s luncheon meeting of the Elizabethtown-Hardin County Chamber of Commerce.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL OPINION:...

    LEXINGTON — After Kentucky’s loss at Florida on Saturday night, Kentucky coach John Calipari knew he had to do something to get his young team’s attention if the Wildcats were going to change the course they were on.

    Calipari called his team “selfish” early this season and the Wildcats were falling into that trap. They had become too worried about their scoring and not about the game’s other fundamental parts. Calipari sat down with the team and challenged each player.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Central's...

    Kyle Terry knows this is it, his last shot to win a state championship.

    Terry had that chance as a junior last season, but those hopes were dashed with a loss to Independence Simon Kenton’s Kevin Cooper in the 130-pound semifinals.

    With his confidence shaken, Terry didn’t win another match and finished 3-3 to take sixth place. Just getting on the medal podium was no consolation, especially when Terry was a considered a favorite to win the title.

  • PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: North...

    The city of Campbellsville hasn’t been all that friendly to the North Hardin Trojans this season.

    Visiting North Hardin lost its fourth game in the city Tuesday night, as it fell to 5th Region rival Campbellsville, 74-71 in double-overtime.

    Senior guard Trevino Coney paced the Trojans (15-9) with 29 points, nine rebounds and two assists, while senior forward Chris Sterusky posted a double-double with 10 points and 17 rebounds.
