  • PREP FOOTBALL: Defense sparks...

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so Friday night’s slugfest looked picture perfect to John Hardin’s defense.

    Behind their stingy defense, the top-seeded Bulldogs downed the third-seeded Grayson County Cougars, 33-3 at Bulldog Stadium in the second round of the Class 5-A playoffs to advance to the state quarterfinals for the sixth consecutive season and the seventh time in the last eight years.

  • BASKETBALL: Turley will get Hall...

    Curtis Turley, who won more than 600 games and led four basketball teams to the state Sweet 16, will be introduced today as the state coordinator of the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame.

    A news conference to introduce Turley has been scheduled for 11 a.m. at Pritchard Community Center, where the Hall of Fame has its temporary office. Elizabethtown has been selected as the site of the Hall of Fame, which will open in 2018 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of organized high school basketball competition in the state.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Unbeaten PRP...

    Josh Krupinski hopes Central Hardin can come up with the area’s biggest postseason surprise.

    It’s been 15 years since the Bruins have reached the third round of the playoffs.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade gets...

    One of the oldest clichés in coaching – no matter what sport or level of play – says it’s hard to beat the same opponent twice.

    That’s exactly what the Meade County Green Wave face tonight, when they host the Louisville Butler Bears at 7:30 at Hamilton Field in the second round of the Class 6-A playoffs.

    And the Green Wave, who beat Butler in the regular-season finale two weeks ago, are expecting nothing less than another physical game.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Playing at Bell...

    The LaRue County Hawks have a daunting task ahead of them tonight.

    Not only will they be on the road for the longest trip they’ve taken for a game this season, but they’ll be playing in what first-year coach Josh Jaggers described as one of the loudest stadiums in the state.

    But the Hawks (6-5) insist they aren’t intimidated by facing Bell County (9-2) at 7:30 tonight in the second round of the Class 3-A playoffs.

  • PREP CROSS COUNTRY: Meade's...

    Larry Garner looks at Jacob Robertson and sees a young runner oozing with potential.

    The veteran Meade County cross country coach believes the freshman has all the talent in the world to become one of the best runners he’s ever coached, and perhaps one of the best in the state.

  • MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL:...

    When Avery Buckles drained a 3-pointer to start Tuesday night’s game against the Campbellsville University JV squad, Elizabethtown Community & Technical College men’s basketball assistant Roman Ritchey thought his team would be in for a great night.

    Indeed the Barons were.

    Chris McDonald scored 23 points and had 15 rebounds as the Barons held off Campbellsville, 55-50 to record the school’s first win in 31 years.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade's...

    Alex Hogan isn’t one for hogging the spotlight.

    As a senior offensive lineman for the Meade County Green Wave, he knows he has what’s been called a thankless job – but it’s one he relishes.

    Hogan would much rather be responsible for creating a hole for one of Meade County’s running backs to run through than the one carrying the ball in the Green Wave’s Wing-T attack.

    If one of his teammates rips off a solid run, Hogan knows he’s done his job.

  • PREP CROSS COUNTRY: LaRue's...

    Longtime LaRue County residents think of three people when they hear the name Sandidge.

    LaRue County High School football fans remember the days when Kelly Sandidge and his younger brother Scott were running the Hawks’ offense at quarterback. Kelly went on to have a stellar career at Centre College, and was named to the school’s Hall of Fame this year.

    Some might even think of Terry Sandidge, a former LaRue County baseball standout who can be seen – camera in tow – at just about every LaRue County sporting event or school function.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins'...

    Ryan Woodrum’s right elbow has taken on a variety of different looks this season.

    None of which have been pretty for the Central Hardin senior linebacker.
