  • PREP FOOTBALL: Knox facing must-...

    This season started out with so much promise for the Fort Knox Eagles.

    Fort Knox began the year with a surprising 41-21 victory over longtime foe Elizabethtown and appeared to be headed for big things under first-year coach Shawn Thompson.

    My how much has changed in two months.

  • 17TH DISTRICT VOLLEYBALL...

    Nerves, negative energy and no points.

    That’s how Thursday’s 17th District Volleyball Tournament final started out for defending champ Central Hardin.

  • BOYS' 10TH DISTRICT SOCCER...

    After he scored the game’s first goal 14 minutes in, the Meade County Green Wave took Central Hardin’s Noah Wiersema out of the equation.

    That was just fine with Jordan Mabe.

    A sophomore midfielder, Mabe scored two goals as the tournament host Bruins knocked off Meade County, 4-0 in the Boys’ 10th District Soccer Tournament final Thursday night.

  • GIRLS' 10TH DISTRICT SOCCER...

    It only seems like she’s been in hiding for a while, but Central Hardin’s No. 1 public enemy resurfaced with a vengeance Thursday night.

    Elizabethtown senior Taylor Perkins scored the game’s only goal with 24:51 remaining in the first half and the Lady Panthers’ defense stifled Central Hardin once again as the top-seeded Lady Panthers edged the second-seeded Lady Bruins, 1-0 in the final of the Girls’ 10th District Soccer Tournament at John Hardin.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Panthers vividly...

    Kyle Todd and the Elizabethtown Panthers haven’t forgotten how LaRue County senior halfback Cody Thompson ran all over them last season in Hodgenville.

    As a junior, Thompson rushed for a game-high 259 yards and three touchdowns on 19 carries to lead the Hawks to a 52-28 win.

    The Panthers are well aware the Hawks still have that big-play ability as the Class 3-A, District 3 rivals meet at 7:30 Friday night at Doug Smith Memorial Stadium.

  • 17TH DISTRICT VOLLEYBALL...

    Elizabethtown coach Tim Hinkle is confident the Lady Panthers will be plenty amped up tonight.

  • 17TH DISTRICT VOLLEYBALL...

    When stressful situations arise, Abbey Sorrells and Sydney Hall have a way to diffuse them.

    The Central Hardin volleyball players huddle together and have a pow-wow if they are near each other on the court.

  • BOYS' 10TH DISTRICT SOCCER...

    With so many other 10th District teams dominated by seniors and his Green Wave loaded with juniors, Meade County boys’ soccer coach Matt Pollock was planning on big things next year.

    So much for that plan, Coach. Your youngsters have grown up quick.

    Junior Austin Lancaster buried arguably the shot of the week, while junior Alex Fackler had another solid night in goal as the third-seeded Green Wave once again beat the second-seeded North Hardin Trojans, 1-0 in the district tournament’s late semifinal Wednesday at Central Hardin.

  • BOYS' 10TH DISTRICT SOCCER...

    Wednesday night’s opening semifinal of the Boys’ 10th District Soccer Tournament at Central Hardin turned out to be lost and found.

    The fourth-seeded John Hardin Bulldogs lost Noah Wiersema and the standout senior striker found the back of the net twice for the top-seeded tournament hosts.

    Senior wing Judah Thomas, an All-Area tennis player, added one goal and one assist in his district debut for the Bruins, who pulled away for a 4-2 win to find their way to consecutive region tournament berths for the first time since the late 1990s.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Hawks look to...

    Josh Jaggers is a firm believer that the Elizabethtown Panthers are better than their record suggests.

    Elizabethtown enters Friday night’s game with Class 4-A, District 4 rival LaRue County having lost eight straight. Jaggers thinks the Panthers would have had more success if their schedule wasn’t as tough as it was.
