  • PREP BOWLING: North girls,...

    Central Hardin learned during Wednesday’s season-opening matches at Dix-E-Town Lanes that for a first-year squad, the Lady Bruins have a pretty good team. Now they just need a bigger one.

    Junior Keri Johnson led the Lady Bruins with a two-game 276 – tops among the 17 girls from Central Hardin, John Hardin and North Hardin who rolled twice individually – but the Lady Bruins still dropped their season-opening matches.

  • PREP BOWLING: Area teams ready...

    Could spare you the (bad) puns, but that’s not going to happen.

    So as three area schools are bowled over to be able to participate in the newest KHSAA-sanctioned sport, Central Hardin, John Hardin and North Hardin aren’t pinning their hopes on anything outlandish as a state championship, but rather, they’re hoping to strike it rich in the fun and growth departments.

    Visiting North Hardin couldn’t hold on to a four-point halftime lead Tuesday night.

    Louisville Doss outscored North Hardin by 11 in the second half en route to a 77-70 win in both teams’ season opener.

    Senior Jermaine Ruttley paced the Trojans with 26 points, seven assists and four steals, while senior Adam Hendrix chipped in with 24 points, nine rebounds and two steals.

    Senior Sam Coachman added nine points and three rebounds.



    It’s definitely noticeable some of Elizabethtown Lady Panthers’ veteran players have retooled their games.

    Senior Kaylyn Cecil has added some aggressiveness. There’s a more confident Anna Bowling and a more vocal, patient and tenacious Tara Gilpin.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Green Wave...

    The Meade County Green Wave return a wealth of experience from last season, but veteran coach Bob Davis doesn’t have too much confidence in his team just yet.

    Meade County enters the season ranked 16th in the state by kentuckywrestling.com and has four wrestlers in the top 10, but Davis is a little unsure of his team right now.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Holtsclaw back,...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs are going through a rebuilding year under first-year coach Michael Mitchell.

    Leading the cast of returnees is junior Wade Holtsclaw, a fifth-year starter who will join the team in the coming weeks as football season just ended for John Hardin. Holtsclaw will bump up to 160 pounds this season.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Knox has just 11...

    It’s been a long time since the Fort Knox Eagles have been able to fill all 14 weight classes.

    This year is no different as the Eagles only have 11 wrestlers out for the team.


    Sophomore Mike Powell scored 11 points and sophomore Chris Jackson chipped in with 10 as the Fort Knox Eagles beat 5th Region rival Caverna, 45-36 on Monday in both teams’ season opener.

    Junior Rashaan Allen added nine points, while freshman Anthony Little scored six.


    Fort Knox (1-0)

    Mike Powell 11, Chris Jackson 10, Rashaan Allen 9, Anthony Little 6, Mike Armstead 3, Brandon Franklin 3, Jessie Stewart 2, Dakota Williams 1.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Bruins return 13...

    The Central Hardin Bruins only have to replace five seniors from last year’s squad, but those five were a pretty talented bunch.

    Gone are Zach Heck, Robert Robey, Cameron McGaw, Kenny Richardson and co-Wrestler of the Year Kyle Terry. The quintet combined for 11 wins at the state tournament, and Terry was runner-up at 130 pounds.

    Terry also won four straight region championships from 2008-11.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Youth movement...

    Keith Smith enters his ninth season at North Hardin with one of the youngest lineups he’s ever had.

    Eight freshmen have moved up from the middle school program, which has flourished the last few seasons under the direction of assistant coach Joe Burroughs. Because of the development of the middle school team, the Trojans will be able to field a full 14-wrestler lineup for the first time in at least three seasons.
