  • PREP WRESTLING: Central's...

    Being a first-year varsity wrestler, Central Hardin sophomore Matt Daugherty had modest expectations of himself.

    After biding his time, Daugherty figured he wasn’t going to go undefeated or ascend the state rankings.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade's...

    Attending a game with Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta was more than enough to convince Thomas Wilson that the U.S. Naval Academy was the right place for him.

    While on an official visit, the Meade County senior quarterback went to the Air Force-Navy game Oct. 1 and realized Navy was where he wanted to be.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin'...

    John Hardin seniors Jeremy Harness and Hunter Holloway found their comfort zones on visits to Murray State, so it was only natural both of them choose to play for the Racers on Wednesday afternoon.

    Harness, a 5-foot-8, 170-pound wideout, and Holloway, a 6-5, 265-pound defensive lineman, both signed national letters of intent in front of a small gathering in the John Hardin High School commons area.


    Cameron Wright had a thunderous dunk on Friday night to spur his Bruins past visiting 17th District rival North Hardin.

    As Central Hardin closed out district play at home Tuesday night against the Fort Knox Eagles, Wright went up to the rim to do it again.

    Or not.

    The senior forward lost control of the ball and tried to lay it up instead. After missing the gimme, he salvaged the play by getting fouled.


    North Hardin ended a six-game losing streak by going inside to its big man. Senior forward Adam Hendrix totaled team highs of 28 points and eight rebounds Tuesday night to lead the visiting Trojans to a 59-43 victory over Adair County.

    Senior guard Jermaine Ruttley added 15 points, six rebounds and three assists to give the Trojans (4-16) their first win since Jan. 6.

    Leading just 22-19 at halftime, North Hardin outscored Adair County (16-8) by 13 points in the second half.

    Bo Wilson didn’t want January to end.

    The Meade County senior guard was on quite the tear during the month.

    Wilson hit five 3-pointers and scored 19 points to join Meade County’s 1,000-point club Tuesday night to lead the host Green Wave to a 71-59 win over the LaRue County Hawks.


    The John Hardin Bulldogs didn’t place too much emphasis on their second meeting with the Elizabethtown Panthers, but the outcome was much-needed.

    After losing five of their last six to Elizabethtown, the Bulldogs finally gained a measure of revenge as they pulled away in the second half for a 69-50 victory in a 17th District game Tuesday night at the Dawg Pound.


    After a tight first quarter, visiting Green County pulled away from 5th Region rival John Hardin to win for the eighth time in its last nine games Monday night.

    Leading 18-16, the Lady Dragons outscored the Lady Bulldogs by 20 points over the final 24 minutes for a 77-55 win.

    Sophomore post Nawdya Fletcher paced John Hardin (15-7) with 23 points and seven rebounds, while junior post Michelle Montgomery added 16 points and 13 rebounds.

    Sophomore guard Zacchea Small and junior wing Desireah Mills each scored seven points.

  • PREP BOWLING: Great balls of...

    Andrew Boyles remembers the times he’d go out to Dix-E-Town Lanes with his friends and he’d be happy if he broke 100.

    Those memories really aren’t so distant but now, the North Hardin High School senior gets a bit peeved if he doesn’t reach at least 140.
