  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    Senior guard Jeremy Harness and the John Hardin Bulldogs are starting to get in sync.

    Harness scored a season-high 24 points to lead the Bulldogs to their fifth consecutive victory – a 61-51 win over the North Hardin Trojans in a 17th District game Friday night at Ron Bevars Gymnasium.

    Harness, who has missed two games because of football, made 9-of-12 shots from the field, including going 5-for-7 from behind the 3-point line. He entered the game shooting 29.7 percent from the field and 26.1 percent from 3-point range.

  • CYCLING: Lucas to compete in...

    Keith Lucas has always been a competitive person, be it road bike racing or mountain bike racing.

    When he was introduced to cyclocross, he wasn’t quite sure what to expect. But the Breckinridge County resident has fallen in love with a sport that combines bicycle racing with racing elements – wooded trails, graded, steep hills and obstacles that require the rider to dismount, carry the bike over or around the obstruction, and remount.

  • PREP BASKETBALL: Big night on...

    Assuming Mother Nature cooperates, there’s a big night of high school hoops ahead.

    There are 17th District doubleheaders at North Hardin and Fort Knox and an 18th District doubleheader at Hart County.

    Longtime North Hardin boys’ coach Ron Bevars just hopes his Trojans (3-11 overall, 2-2 district) are prepared when they tip off at 6 against the visiting John Hardin Bulldogs (7-5, 2-1).

  • PREP BOWLING: Area coaches feel...

    Three of the area’s first-year bowling coaches feel the draft alignment for the postseason is far more worthy of a gutter ball than it is a strike.

    Central Hardin coach Sarah Bauer, North Hardin coach Dan Robbins and John Hardin co-coach Mike Moritz have all expressed their displeasure after the KHSAA released the draft alignment by email at 3:30 p.m. Monday.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The John Hardin High School girls’ basketball team made history in its last meeting with Central Hardin Lady Bruins as the host Lady Bulldogs won, 48-36 on Dec. 13 to end their 0-for-20 career record against their 17th District foes.

    As the teams renew their rivalry at 7:30 tonight on Bruin Gym’s Terry Buckles Court, fifth-year John Hardin coach Bryan Todd said the last meeting is in the past.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Holtsclaw is a...

    On the football field, John Hardin junior Wade Holtsclaw is level-headed. That’s the only way he can be on the gridiron.

    But when he steps on the wrestling mat, Holtsclaw cranks up the intensity. He doesn’t let his emotions get the best of him, but he’s not as even-keeled as he is in football.

    Two sports, two entirely opposite personalities.

  • PREP WRESTLING: Smith resigns as...

    When Keith Smith took over as North Hardin High School’s wrestling coach in 2002, he wanted to return the Trojans to state prominence.

    Smith began to rebuild the program, and North Hardin flourished under his direction.

    The Trojans have placed in the top 10 three times under Smith – including a third-place finish in 2007 – and produced three individual state champions in the last 10 years.
