  • PREP FOOTBALL: Central's...

    Central Hardin football coach Mike Lawson thinks the University of Louisville coach Charlie Strong got a recruiting steal in senior kicker John Wallace.

    Wallace, who verbally committed to Louisville on April 27, signed his national letter of intent Wednesday afternoon in the Central Hardin library.

    “He’s as good as anybody in the state, and as good as anybody that’s come out of here in the last five to 10 years,” Lawson said. “He’s only going to get better. He’s got a tremendous upside.”

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Even with a 25-point halftime lead, Central Hardin coach David Robbins still thought the Lady Bruins weren’t showing enough defensive intensity.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    In less than a minute Tuesday night, Blake Bonner morphed from goat to hero.

    After committing a turnover that allowed the Elizabethtown Panthers to take a one-point lead, the John Hardin senior forward hit the tying and go-ahead free throws with 32.7 seconds left and the Bulldogs made the foul shots stand up  in their 64-63 road win against their 17th District rival.

    “I was like, I gotta get the ball back for my team. I messed up,” said Bonner, who had 11 points and a team-high seven rebounds.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    When one of his most experienced players – sophomore forward Chanel Roberts – fouled out midway through the fourth quarter Tuesday night, North Hardin coach James Slaven knew he could count on freshmen guards Domoneque Taft and Kiera Jones.

    The duo came through in a big way at the Dawg Pound.

    Jones hit 3-of-4 3-pointers and Taft had 10 points, six steals and three rebounds to lead visiting North Hardin to a 46-44 win over 17th District rival John Hardin. It was North Hardin’s 23rd straight victory over the Lady Bulldogs.

  • PREP GIRLS' BASKETBALL:...

    Whenever the Lady Trojans face John Hardin, all this energy and emotion pours out of North Hardin coach James Slaven.

    But there’s a reason for all his apprehension.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Fueled by their senior tandem of Mitchell Henry and Chris McDonald, the Elizabethtown Panthers dominated the glass to snap homestanding John Hardin’s 13-game winning streak nearly two weeks ago.

    If that happens tonight in a 17th District game at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium, John Hardin coach Mark Wells said the Bulldogs could be in for a long night.

    Henry had 16 rebounds and McDonald grabbed 11, and Wells said the Panthers had a solid defensive game plan in a 74-66 win at the Dawg Pound on Jan. 18.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Winning his first game as a varsity head coach in a two-point nail biter against his alma mater, Ron Bevars summed up the victory simply.

    “We were lucky to win it,” he said.

    Now more than 35 years and 766 more “lucky” triumphs later, North Hardin’s head coach has tied the state record. The Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches recognizes Bevars and Clay County’s Bobby Keith as the winningest coaches in history with 767 varsity victories.
