    After Russ Mott returned to the field, the Elizabethtown Community & Technical College men’s soccer team returned to the win column.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Panthers...

    Four players had a goal or an assist as the homestanding Elizabethtown Panthers ended their three-game losing streak Saturday afternoon with a 2-0 win against 5th Region rival Nelson County.

    Sophomore Cody Bridges scored in the first half off a pass from junior Conner Kauffeld. Freshman Nick Coffman tallied the insurance goal off an assist from junior Travis Richardson.

    Senior Alec Fields came up with four saves as Elizabethtown (4-12) outshot the Cardinals (9-4-1), 12-4.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: More area...

    Elizabethtown sophomore defensive specialist Rebecca Hepner used to serve with the standard approach.

    But while playing for the Kentucky Heartland Volleyball Club 16s during the summer, she started experimenting with a jump serve.

    She’d toss the ball high in the air, time her leap and then crush the ball with her right hand, sending a powerful shot over the net and at an opposing players’ shoulders.

    It gave her quite a rush. Now she loves it, especially the intimidation factor.

  • BOYS' PREP GOLF:...

    Coach Andy Games thought his Elizabethtown boys’ golf team had labored through a pretty solid season. On Saturday afternoon, his Panthers finally tasted those fruits.

    The Panthers earned their only regular-season win by dominating the 18-team North Hardin Invitational, while friends Michael Vick and Ryan Daniels duked it out in a one-hole playoff for the individual title in the 90-player field at the par-72 Lincoln Trail Country Club in Vine Grove after both players carded 1-over 73s.
