  • PREP VOLLEYBALL ROUNDUP: Central...

    Central Hardin finally suffered its first loss this season, to a top-10 team no less, and finished third in the Bluegrass Invitational at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin...

    LEXINGTON— The 2012 season started the same way last season ended for the John Hardin Bulldogs.

    Less than 5 minutes into their season opener at Lexington Henry Clay, the Bulldogs found themselves in a 13-0 hole. It brought back flashbacks of last season’s crushing 62-20 defeat to Bowling Green in the Class 5-A state semifinals. In that loss, the Bulldogs fell behind 34-0.

    “They came out and smacked us in the mouth,” John Hardin senior Wade Holtsclaw said. “They were ready to play and we had to get it in gear.”

  • GIRLS' PREP GOLF: Gumm wins...

    The Lady Bruin Invitational has been around for a decade, but the tournament witnessed a couple things which hadn’t been accomplished the first nine years.

    North Hardin senior Lydia Gumm fired a 1-under-par 72 on Saturday at Lindsey Golf Course on Fort Knox to win the tournament for a record fourth time. Caldwell County graduate Emma Talley won the event three times.

  • FRIDAY FOOTBALL UPDATE: John...

    LEXINGTON— The John Hardin Bulldogs overcame a horrendous start Friday night to finish with the same result as the previous 10 years.

    The Bulldogs won their 11th consecutive season opener, but it didn’t come easily on Lexington Henry Clay’s John G. Heber Field at Dr. Robert J. Bell Stadium. The Devils jumped out to a 13-0 lead, but John Hardin rallied to take a 22-21 and then pulled away in the second half for a 44-27 victory.

  • FRIDAY FOOTBALL UPDATE: LaRue...

    CAMPBELLSVILLE — LaRue County’s stable of running backs helped Josh Jaggers record his first win as the Hawks’ coach at his former home stadium.

    Seniors Caleb Canter and Matthew Hornback and junior Austin McDowell combined for five rushing touchdowns to lead LaRue County to a 47-7 rout of the Adair County Indians in Friday’s second game of the Forcht Bank Bowl at Campbellsville’s University’s Finley Stadium.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Collins staves...

    After his team was outmuscled throughout the entire first half at home Friday night, Meade County coach Larry Mofield turned to a new offense.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    After a season full of heartbreak and disappointment, maybe it figured the Elizabethtown Panthers would have to endure at least another half of some more failure in their season opener at home Friday night.

    Behind a standout effort from workhorse senior running back Josh Williams, a slow-starting but productive night from senior quarterback Austin Campbell and a markedly improved defense, the Panthers overcame four first-half turnovers and a halftime deficit to rally by the Fort Knox Eagles, 23-15 in possibly the rivals’ last meeting at Doug Smith Memorial Stadium.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: St. Catharine...

    By TOM BYSTREK

    For The News-Enterprise

    If familiarity breeds contempt, as the saying goes, then Saturday’s soccer match between the Elizabethtown Community & Technical College Barons and the St. Catharine College Patriots should be a spirited affair. On the two teams there are a combined 15 players who spent their high school careers in programs in Hardin County schools.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: ECTC Barons play...

    This weekend’s season- and program-opener for the men’s soccer team at Elizabethtown Community & Technical College is a lot like a trip to Las Vegas: Good luck winning when the house holds a big edge.

    The fledgling Barons originally thought Saturday’s 2 p.m. game against the host St. Catharine College Patriots would be against the school’s junior varsity program. Instead, the homestanding NAIA program chose to make ECTC one of its two allotted scrimmages.
