    Individual Results

  • GIRLS' MIDDLE SCHOOL...

    LEXINGTON — The T.K. Stone Lady Panthers made Patty Lucas’ return to the bench a memorable experience.

    Tournament MVP Erin Boley scored 15 points and Darien Huff had seven as the Lady Panthers beat Somerset Southern, 43-36 on Saturday to win the Kentucky Basketball Academy’s Eighth-Grade Girls’ Basketball Tournament championship at Rupp Arena.

    In her first game back since the death of her mother, Mary Lou Rogers Todd, Lucas was perfectly content letting Elizabethtown High School coach Tim Mudd continue coaching her team.

  • Bulldog fans

    John Hardin students and fans filled Bulldog Stadium on a freezing Friday night to cheer on the Bulldogs as they played Christian County in the Class 5-A state semifinal. Heavy jackets and blankets were a neccisity as the temperatures dropped below 30-degrees with a slight breeze. As the Dawgs fell behind, the mood of the crowd turned blue also and not from just the weather. Some stayed to the bitter end while others kept cheering. Here are a few scenes from the event.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bulldogs can...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs treaded water for most of the first three quarters Friday night.

    Despite a shaky start which saw John Hardin fall behind 6-0, the Bulldogs rallied to build a 14-6 halftime lead, and then managed to grab a 20-19 lead with 3:20 left in the third quarter after the Christian County Colonels reeled off 13 consecutive points to start the second half.

    But then the flood gates opened and John Hardin was swarmed under by a wave of big plays by the Colonels.

  • BOYS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    North Hardin senior Andrew Stewart has dominated the area cross country scene for the last three years.

    In that same time frame, he’s also dominated the voting for Runner of the Year on the All-Area Boys’ Cross Country Team.

    Stewart once again was a unanimous pick for the award, garnering all six possible first-place votes for the maximum 30 points. Stewart was a unanimous selection for the third straight year.

  • GIRLS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    Between swimming practice and dance rehearsals, Hannah Godfrey found a way to fix cross country into her already busy schedule this fall.

    “She’s somebody who’s got a lot of activities between swimming and cross country and dance,” second-year Elizabethtown coach Jack Breunig said. “She jumped from one practice to the other.”

    While balancing her three activities, the Elizabethtown freshman transformed into one of the area’s best runners – and it showed over the final month of the season.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Christian County...

    Most games when the John Hardin Bulldogs step on the field, they are going to be more athletic than their opponent, but that certainly won’t be the case tonight.

    The Bulldogs (13-0) host the Christian County Colonels (11-2) at 7:30 tonight in the Class 5-A state semifinals at Bulldog Stadium. The game might resemble a track meet more than a football as both teams are blessed with a number of athletes.

    “They have speed, speed and more speed,” John Hardin coach Mark Brown said. “They will be the best team we’ve played all year.

  • GIRLS' MIDDLE SCHOOL...

    By the time last weekend ended, the T.K. Stone eighth-grade girls’ basketball team was a tired pack of Lady Panthers.

    Based on the results, that was just fine with them.

    After beating Meade County’s Stuart Pepper Middle School in the Middle School Athletic Conference Tournament final on Nov. 18, the Lady Panthers headed to Lexington for the Kentucky Basketball Academy’s eighth-grade girls’ state tournament.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Defensive line...

    John Hardin senior defensive end Matt Linton looked around at the beginning of the season and he was completely surrounded by new faces.

    Linton was the lone returner from last year’s defensive line, which was a disruptive force for opposing offenses. Gone was sack leader Stanley Johnson at end and defensive tackles William Burford and Justin Taylor.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Wright has played...

    Cornerbacks, by nature, usually attract attention to themselves. Look at famous NFL cornerbacks like Deion Sanders, Champ Bailey, Asante Samuel, Al Harris and Darrelle Revis, all of whom people are aware of for how they play and what they say.

    John Hardin senior cornerback Anthony Wright breaks the mold of a typical cornerback. The soft-spoken Wright prefers to let his play do all his talking for him.
