  • PREP GIRLS' BASKETBALL:...

    Elizabethtown’s grueling week finally came to an end.

    Three road games in three days. So much for that challenge presenting any problem.  

  • PREP BOYS' BASKETBALL:...

    With Fort Knox in a 2-3 zone, the Elizabethown Panthers took advantage.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    LEBANON Adelaide Luckett and the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers didn’t look much like a team in a rut Thursday night. Instead, they looked very much like a region tournament contender.

    A senior forward, Luckett posted 14 points and 11 rebounds and senior guard Natalie Greenwell scored a game-high 21 points as the fourth-ranked Lady Panthers earned a 55-46 road win against the eighth-ranked and defending 5th Region Tournament champion Marion County Lady Knights.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    Freshman guard Ivy Brown scored 20 points and eighth-grade guard Alexis Brewer had 19 as the homestanding LaRue County Lady Hawks knocked off Breckinridge County, 59-50 on Thursday night.

    Brown also had seven rebounds and three steals, while Brewer had two assists.

    Junior guard Nancy Howell added eight points and senior forward Lyndsay Whitlock scored six for the Lady Hawks (19-3), who led 25-11 after the first quarter en route to their second straight win.

  • PREP WRESTLING: House willing to...

    In the eyes of North Hardin wrestling coach Keith Smith, junior heavyweight Aaron House made the ultimate sacrifice last season.

    House evolved into one of the state’s top 215-pound wrestlers – he was ranked 13th in his class entering the last two weeks of the regular season. That left his older brother, Steven, in limbo when he wanted to drop from 285 because he felt he was better suited for 215.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL: John...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs learned Thursday night how hard it is to get to the top.

    The Bulldogs built an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter, but they had to hold off the feisty North Hardin Trojans for a 66-63 victory at Ron Bevars Gymnasium. The win gave John Hardin the No. 1 seed for the first time in the program’s history for the upcoming 17th District Tournament.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL: John...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs have recorded one big road win against a 17th District rival this week. Tonight, they head to Ron Bevars Gymnasium in attempt to double their fun against the North Hardin Trojans.

    John Hardin is coming off a thrilling 64-63 win Tuesday night in which the Bulldogs (16-2 overall, 6-1 district) blew an 11-point advantage and a last-minute lead against the Elizabethtown Panthers only to get it back and hold on after a pair of free throws from senior forward Blake Bonner.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Despite having a horrible night at the free-throw line and turning the ball over 16 times, the visiting Hart County Lady Raiders still had a shot to knock off 5th Region foe Elizabethtown on Wednesday night.

    Elizabethtown senior guards Natalie Greenwell and Hannah Hart would have none of it.

    After halftime, Greenwell scored 13 of her 15 points and Hart scored 10 of her 12 to lead the fourth-ranked Lady Panthers to a 55-44 victory at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin'...

    Jeff Richard was all-smiles Wednesday afternoon, which is pretty fitting considering the John Hardin High School senior plans to focus on straightening out smiles once his football career comes to a close and his orthodontic career opens.

    He’s not ready to give up his gridiron days just yet, confirming this much by signing a national letter of intent with Murray State University while decked out in a yellow dress shirt, gold tie and navy blue Racers ball cap.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    Keeping Kentucky players in state for their college careers was little more than an afterthought for Western Kentucky University’s former coaching staff.

    That changed once prodigal son Willie Taggart returned from Stanford to take over his alma mater.

    “We are going to recruit (Kentucky) first and foremost, and then we are going to Florida,” Taggart recently told The Louisville Courier-Journal. He is a Florida native.
