  • 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.

  • PREP SOCCER: KHSAA releases...

  • PREP SOCCER: Soccer shakeup? (11...

    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.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs realize they didn’t play the perfect game against North Hardin on Friday night. But after each game, they know there will be things to work on and correct and the 31-10 victory over the Trojans is no different.

    “We realize we have things to work on,” John Hardin senior defensive end Blake Cavinee said. “We always have something to work on even when we win. We will watch the film and see where we need to get better. We’ll get those things fixed and get ready for J’town.”

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Jaggers says...

    North Hardin coach Crad Jaggers saw the Trojans take steps forward in his fourth year over the program.

    The Trojans won six games for the second consecutive season and they recorded a playoff win for the first time since 2004, beating Bullitt East, 35-14. The Trojans also beat Meade County for the first time in Jaggers’ tenure.

    Although they lost to John Hardin, 31-10 on Friday night in the second round of the Class 5-A playoffs, Jaggers said he is encouraged by what he saw.

  • BOYS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    LEXINGTON With only two runners returning from last season’s top-10 squad, Meade County coach Larry Garner wasn’t quite sure what to expect from his Green Wave.

    How’s another top-10 finish sound, Coach?

    Juniors Will Strickland and Jacob Waldecker both had top-40 finishes to help Meade County finish seventh in the Class 3-A race during Saturday’s KHSAA State Cross Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park.
