  • PREP BOWLING: Green River...





    CAMPBELLSVILLE — Results from Saturday’s Green River Invitational baker-only tournament at the 20-lane Phillips Lanes (each team rolled eight baker games for a maximum total of 2,400 pins):

    Boys (8 Teams)


    His Lady Panthers were playing well enough on the floor Friday, but veteran Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd was so incensed by an official’s call that he walked off of it with time still remaining in the first half.

    After cooling off, Mudd returned to enjoy watch his depleted and tired team lock up a share of the 17th District regular-season title with a 63-36 home win over the turnover-prone John Hardin Lady Bulldogs.


    Coaches like to use the old adage when shots are falling everything else looks good. That’s certainly the case for the John Hardin Bulldogs.

    The Bulldogs, which shot 55.3 percent from the field, used a 16-0 run to take a comfortable first-half lead and cruise to a 65-48 victory over the North Hardin Trojans in a 17th District game Friday night at the Dawg Pound.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Hawks keep...

    Without one of their top wrestlers, the LaRue County Hawks showed they have some chinks in their armor.

    In the end, even that wasn’t enough to slow them down Saturday at North Hardin’s Ron Bevars Gymnasium.


    Cameron Wright saved Central Hardin from a collapse. He rediscovered his outside shooting touch in the nick of time and the bank stayed open late for the Bruins senior forward.

    Wright banked in a 3-pointer with 1:19 to go and Central Hardin hit 8-of-10 free throws in the final minute to hang on for a 53-46 home victory over Louisville Eastern.

    The Bruins (8-10) have won two of their last three games.

    Central Hardin let a 13-point lead in the third quarter slip away as Louisville Eastern (9-10) took a 43-42 lead with 1:43 left. 


    The John Hardin Bulldogs took the lead midway through the first quarter and never looked back.

    Tied at 7-all, the Bulldogs used a 16-0 run to take a comfortable lead and cruise to a 65-48 victory over the North Hardin Trojans in a 17-th District game Friday night at the Dawg Pound.

    John Hardin junior forward Daveon Greene scored a game-high 23 points and pulled down eight rebounds. Junior guard Brandon Price added 14 points and dished out eight assists, while sophomore guard Keon Williams had 14 points, six rebounds and five steals.


    A deep Elizabethtown Lady Panthers team put the visiting John Hardin Lady Bulldogs into a deep early hole Friday.

    Playing with serious foul trouble to their two primary posts threats and without three injured players who have started this season, No. 11 Elizabethtown opened the game with a 23-0 run before cruising to a 63-36 win and more importantly a share of the Girls’ 17th District regular-season title.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: Elizabethtown...

    After spending most of the early part of their schedule on the road, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers are preparing to get comfortable at home.

    The 11th-ranked Lady Panthers (13-2 overall, 5-0 17th District) entertain the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs (14-4, 3-2) at 7:30 tonight at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium, where they haven’t lost to a district team since suffering a 75-63 setback to North Hardin on Dec. 4, 2006.


    Eighth-grade forward Erin Boley and freshman guard Darien Huff combined to hit four three throws in the final 29 seconds to help the visiting Elizabethtown Lady Panthers hold off 5th Region rival Hart County on Thursday, 61-54.

    The Lady Raiders (11-9) cut 11th-ranked Elizabethtown’s lead to 57-54 with 37 seconds left on a 3-pointer by senior wing Jordan Strothers, but the youngsters made their free throws to help the Lady Panthers (13-2) win their fourth straight.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Trojan...

    After seeing just how dominant the LaRue County Hawks have been this season, interim North Hardin wrestling coach Joe Burroughs hopes to attract some tougher competition in the years to come for the annual Trojan Invitational Tournament.

    The top-ranked Hawks have yet to lose a match to in-state competition and are coming off a lopsided win in last weekend’s Sycamore (Tenn.) Invitational. LaRue County went 9-2 in the finals and racked up 319 points.
