  • GIRLS' MIDDLE SCHOOL...

    Patty Lucas knows the T.K. Stone Lady Panthers are in good hands when Erin Boley is on the floor.

    Boley scored a game-high 21 points to lead host T.K. Stone to a 41-28 win over Stuart Pepper on Thursday in the championship of the Middle School Athletic Conference Eighth-Grade Girls’ Basketball Tournament.

  • GIRLS' MIDDLE SCHOOL...

    In a big moment Thursday night, one of East Hardin’s youngest players delivered a championship for the Lady Rebels.

    Sixth-grader Megan Kolley hit one free throw with 16.7 seconds left in overtime to help East Hardin fend off host T.K. Stone, 37-35 in the Middle School Athletic Conference Seventh-Grade Girls’ Basketball Tournament championship game.

    “I was shaking to death. I didn’t know what I was going to do,” said Kolley, who scored three points. “But I trusted in my team and we believed we could win this.”

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Will Chargers use...

    The formula for disrupting John Hardin’s offense sounds easy enough. Have nine players in the box, bring plenty of pressure and don’t let the John Hardin backs escape.

    It’s something the Bulldogs have seen plenty of the last few games, and it’s something they expect to see more down the line.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin'...

    John Hardin senior quarterback Eli Mitchell never gets caught up in numbers. He’s not worried about completions, yards and touchdowns. He refuses to allow himself to worry about those things.

    Mitchell takes the same approach with those who might want to criticize the job he does. People outside the program don’t seem to give the 6-foot-5, 205-pound quarterback enough credit. If John Hardin wins, it’s because the Bulldogs have great running backs or a great defense. The naysayers take the approach they win in spite of Mitchell.

  • PREP SWIMMING: E'town'...

    Emma Coakley had long considered Vanderbilt University the front-runner for her college destination.

    For two-plus years, the Elizabethtown High School senior swimmer figured she’d move out of state and wind up at the Southeastern Conference school. Then, a two-day visit to home state school and the University of Louisville blew her away.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Harness, Brown...

    The John Hardin backfield has been hampered by injuries lately, but senior halfbacks Quensie Brown and Jeremy Harness both said they expect to play Friday night against Jeffersontown in the Class 5-A, Region 2 championship.

    Harness injured his ankle against Shelby County in the first round of the playoffs and hurt it again against North Hardin on the opening kickoff. He left the game after the first play, but returned. Harness finished with 78 yards on 12 carries and caught five passes for 49 yards.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Berry finds a...

    John Hardin senior Kenyon Berry admits he has been all over the southeastern United States. Such is the life for a “military brat” – as Berry calls himself.

    Berry lived in South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana before moving to Kentucky prior to his junior season. After living a number of places, Berry has a place to call home.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bulldogs know...

    John Hardin coach Mark Brown doesn’t like facing a team twice in the same season. He wasn’t in favor of the playoff format when teams played within their own district in first two rounds. But sometimes it can’t be avoided.

    The KHSAA could shake up the state soccer scene today.

    During its monthly board of control meeting this morning in Lexington, the KHSAA team sports committee is scheduled to discuss a wide-reaching soccer alignment.
