  • PREP VOLLEYBALL ROUNDUP: Central...

    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins went 4-1 in the Owensboro Apollo SummerSlam, falling to eventual tournament champion Lexington Tates Creek in the gold bracket championship.

    Central Hardin (6-1) won its pool by beating Henderson County, 21-25, 25-21, 15-11 and Paducah Tilghman, 25-15, 25-22.

    After losing 24-26, 25-18, 15-7 to Tates Creek, the Lady Bruins knocked off Paducah Christian Fellowship, 25-9, 24-26, 15-5, and Meade County, 25-19, 25-11.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Flores...

    Ray Flores knows he has a big task ahead of him.

    Just after preseason practice started, Flores was tabbed as head coach of the Fort Knox boys’ soccer team – and given the objective of getting the program turned in the right direction.

    Flores is the team’s fourth coach in the last four seasons – and the team’s seventh since 2001. He replaces Michaela Jacobs, who was 6-12-2 last year. Fort Knox won just 19 games the past three seasons under former coaches Alex Molina, Jose Huerta and Jacobs.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Green...

    Meade County boys’ soccer coach Matt Pollock expects the first quarter of the season to be a little bumpy.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Falcons...

    Before his sixth season as head boys’ soccer coach at North Hardin Christian got underway, Josh Hardin wasn’t even sure if he would have enough players to field a team.

    Because of the low turnout, Hardin chose to cancel summer practice and the team’s annual camp at Campbellsville University. Hardin thought about having his squad compete as a club team instead of at the varsity level in the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association.

    Then school started, and the turnout increased – and Hardin’s outlook changed.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: North...

    Coming off a 12-8-3 record and a district tournament semifinal appearance, North Hardin boys’ soccer coach Jim Stone thinks the Trojans are in for a banner season.

    Leadership, goal-scoring, defense and unity are all there this year.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Lady...

    Meade County’s girls' soccer team came so close to taking down some of the top 10th District teams last year.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Kness-...

    If you would have asked her 20 years ago, Karina Kness-Kuhl couldn’t imagine coaching a high school sport.

    That changed in late September of last season when Kness-Kuhl was chosen to replace Liz Barnes as coach of the Fort Knox girls’ soccer team.

    Fort Knox started 0-12-2 and hadn’t scored a goal in 10 games before Kness-Kuhl took over. The Lady Eagles were mercy ruled four times in that span.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL ROUNDUP: LaRue...

    Ivy Brown and Allison Evans combined for 18 kills to lead the homestanding LaRue County Lady Hawks to a 25-15, 26-24 win over 18th District rival Caverna on Thursday.

    Brown had 10 kills and one ace, while Evans had eight kills and two blocks for the Lady Hawks (2-0 overall, 1-0 district).

    Lauren Meredith added 11 assists, and Miranda Hornback had two kills and one ace.

    UP NEXT: LaRue County plays at district rival Hart County at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central rolls...

    After Monday night’s coaching chaos, Central Hardin’s volleyball team looked much more comfortable than in its season-opening match.

    The Lady Bruins stayed loose. They attacked the net. And they even had new coach Jeff Crady dancing with them a little by the end of their 17th District match.
