  • PREP FOOTBALL: North anxious to...

    Saturday night can’t get here soon enough for the North Hardin Trojans. After a month of beating up on each other and two scrimmages, the Trojans are anxious for the season to get started.

    North Hardin is the last area team to start the season as the Trojans play the Greenwood Gators at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the first game of the Joe Jaggers Bowl. The Meade County Green Wave take on South Oldham in the nightcap.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: North boys...

    Host Louisville Eastern scored on a penalty kick in the first half and added an insurance goal late in the second to fend off the North Hardin Trojans, 2-0 on Thursday.

    It was the third straight game against a top-25 opponent for No. 25 North Hardin (2-2). Eastern (2-0-1) is ranked No. 22.

    “We outplayed them in the second half,” said veteran North Hardin coach Jim Stone. “We were down 1-0 5 minutes into the game, but they didn’t score again until about 7 minutes left. In between that time, we played very well.”

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL ROUNDUP: LaRue...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks breezed to their sixth win of the season Thursday, a three-set victory over 5th Region rival Fort Knox.

    Host LaRue County finished with three more aces than the Lady Eagles had points as it rolled to a 25-4, 25-5, 25-12.

    Just three years ago, South Oldham went 0-10, got shut out twice and was limited to seven points or less four other times.

    That was before Jamie Reed arrived.

    Before the season started, Central Hardin senior Alneisha Butler was worried about losing her starting spot as a middle hitter.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Coming off...

    Last week was a bit of a football pinnacle for first-year LaRue County coach Josh Jaggers, whose Hawks gave him his first career victory with a convincing 47-7 win over the Adair County Indians in the second game of the Forcht Bank Bowl at Campbellsville University.

    There’s only one problem.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP...

    Junior midfielder Shelbi Brooks and junior forward Abby Modrowski each had a goal and an assist as the visiting LaRue County Lady Hawks tied Bullitt East, 4-4 on Wednesday.

    Freshman forward Savannah Brooks and freshman midfielder Nichole Thomas also scored for the Lady Hawks (2-2-1).

    Senior keeper Kasey Wells made six saves.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Central...

    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins took advantage of a confused John Hardin defense to pick up their first win of the season Wednesday.

    A foul just outside the 18-yard box gave the host Lady Bruins a direct free kick. The Lady Bulldogs thought it was indirect free kick, which meant another Central Hardin had to touch the ball before they could score.

    But Central Hardin senior midfielder Haley Ennis banked the shot in off the right post 5 minutes into the game, and the Lady Bruins’ defense made it stand up in their 17th District opener, 1-0.
