    When the Central Hardin Bruins and Elizabethtown Panthers get together on the hardwood, one thing is always certain: the game is going to be intense.

    The Bruins and Panthers renew their rivalry tonight at 7:30 at Bruin Gym in the 17th District opener for both teams.

    “We’re ready. I don’t know what the outcome will be, but we’re ready to play,” Central Hardin coach J.C. Wright said Thursday evening. “It’ll be good to see where we’re at and work on things that will make us better.”

    Awesome was the buzzword Friday night during Central Hardin’s celebration of its 2011 KHSAA state baseball championship.

    Central Hardin celebrated its first boys’ state championship as the players and coaches were presented their championship rings during halftime of the boys’ basketball game against Elizabethtown. The team received a standing ovation from both fan bases as the ceremony began. The school also had a banner placed in the gym honoring the team’s accomplishment.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Even with a runaway 17th District win, the North Hardin Lady Trojans didn’t provide maximum effort.

    First-year coach Chris Corder thought they were too lackluster and players agreed. They’re learning that having a strong mental game is just as important as talent.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    With a 22-point halftime lead over 18th District rival Hart County, the LaRue County Hawks hit a lull and went ice cold coming out of the locker room Friday night.

    Settling for long jump shots and 3-pointers, the Hawks were held scoreless for nearly 5 minutes after halftime. Veteran coach Paul Childress burned two timeouts in that span, and got on his players for not executing the game plan.

    The Hawks responded with an 18-8 run to close the third quarter en route to an 81-53 win over the visiting Raiders.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The scouting report LaRue County coach Travis Wootton drew up for the Hart County Lady Raiders was a simple one: keep tabs on senior guards Lexee Wilson, Jordan Strother and Leah Burd.

    Task not accomplished.

    Burd, Wilson and Strother combined to hit six 3-pointers as the visiting Lady Raiders knocked off 18th District rival LaRue County, 52-32 on Friday night.
