  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks appeared to be on their way to an easy victory Friday night, but the Green County Lady Dragons had other plans.

    The homestanding Lady Hawks led most of the third quarter by double digits, but Green County made it interesting before LaRue County pulled out a 47-40 victory to remain in the hunt for the No. 1 seed in the 18th District.

    Central Hardin senior guard Matt Nichols scored 11 of his game-high 25 points from the foul line in the final 8 minutes Friday and junior forward Andrew Kinney hit a game-best four 3-pointers to finish with 16 points as the host Bruins held off the visiting Elizabethtown Panthers, 58-52 in a critical 17th District game.

    Nichols also had a team-high eight rebounds as the Bruins (5-6, 1-3) ended a three-game losing streak.

    John Hardin went on a third-quarter defensive blitz.

    The Bulldogs ratcheted up their backcourt press and man-to-man defense up a notch.

    They stuck to their gameplan and wore the Meade County Green Wave out Friday night.

    Leading by just one point at halftime, John Hardin outscored Meade County by 20 points in the third quarter as the Bulldogs rolled to a 67-41 win.

    LaRue County assistant coach Simon Ford kept telling head coach Paul Childress the Hawks were going to turn it on Friday night, but Childress was beginning to have his doubts.

    But true to Ford’s words, LaRue County erupted in the fourth quarter with 21 points to knock off the visiting Green County Dragons, 59-44 and remain undefeated in 18th District play.

    John Hardin is off to its best start in school history.

    And the Bulldogs (11-0) are one of only four undefeated teams left in the state.

    John Hardin rebounded from a disheartening 17th District loss in a dynamic way.

    Disappointed after their 17-point loss to rival North Hardin on Wednesday night, the Lady Bulldogs came back with a hard-nosed defensive effort and rolled to a Thursday evening home blowout win.

    John Hardin forced the visiting Fort Knox Lady Eagles into 39 total turnovers, including 11 in the opening quarter, en route to a 74-22 victory.

    Junior guard Cannon Ray will readily admit that the last time his Central Hardin Bruins took the court, they didn’t do a very good job of interior defense.

    “We didn’t do a very good job of keeping the ball out of the paint and that’s where they got most of their points,” Ray said during practice Thursday, two days after junior Adam Hendrix and senior Chris Sterusky of 17th District rival North Hardin torched his team for 44 points from inside the paint or the foul line.

    Freshman guard Raley Johnson scored a game-high 28 points, but a six-point third quarter doomed the Meade County Lady Waves in a 68-62 loss to visiting Floyd (Ind.) Central on Thursday night.

    Johnson also had six rebounds and one steal for the Lady Waves (2-10), who led 39-38 at halftime but were outscored 16-6 in the third quarter en route to their second loss in four games.

    Sophomore post Maya Luney added nine points, eight rebounds and one block, while freshman guard Carissa Schwartz scored seven points.

  • PREP WRESTLING: LaRue is loaded...

    Longtime LaRue County wrestling coach Gary Canter took a different approach to his team’s schedule this season.

    Instead of focusing the early portion on duals tournaments, Canter entered the King of the Bluegrass at Louisville Fairdale and the Fayette County (Ga.) Christmas Classic.

    The third-ranked Hawks won both, and Canter is optimistic the beefed-up slate will pay big dividends in next month’s state tournament.

    Once senior guard Natalie Greenwell got hot Thursday night, it made it impossible once again for the Central Hardin Lady Bruins to slow down Elizabethtown.

    Greenwell had one of her best shooting nights of the season as Elizabethtown started slow before her Lady Panthers rolled to a 73-28 win over the Lady Bruins at Bruin Gym.

    Greenwell made 8-of-12 shots from the floor, including 5-of-6 from the 3-point line, on her way to a game-high 23 points.
