  • 11TH DISTRICT BOYS'...

    This game took Meade County coach Jerry Garris by surprise.

    After picking up an overtime win and a blowout victory over Hancock County in the regular season, the longtime Green Wave coach didn’t know what to expect from his team Tuesday night.

    But Meade County took the sting out of the Hornets early and coasted into the championship game of the 11th District Tournament.

    Senior forward Thomas Wilson scored 16 points to lead four players in double figures as the host Green Wave cruised to an 82-36 win in the second semifinal.

  • 17TH DISTRICT BOYS'...

    The 17th District’s hottest team didn’t have too much trouble with its opening-round opponent Tuesday night.

    The North Hardin Trojans blitzed the Fort Knox Eagles in each of the first two periods and the Trojans rolled into Thursday’s semifinals.

    After taking care of one youth-filled team, the Trojans are gunning for another.   

  • 11TH DISTRICT GIRLS'...

    Facing Cloverport Frederick Fraize in the Girls’ 11th District Basketball Tournament semifinals gave the Meade County Lady Waves plenty of chances to see what they’ll be facing in two nights.

    The Lady Aces ran a zone defense Monday night, something the host Lady Waves could expect to see Thursday after rolling to a 64-6 win.

  • 18TH DISTRICT BOYS'...

    GREENSBURG LaRue County didn’t let Caverna hang around this time.

  • 17TH DISTRICT GIRLS'...

    For coach Demond Thomas, the postseason opener Monday night for his Central Hardin Lady Bruins was much like a time-delayed text on his players’ phones – sure they got the message, but why did it take so long, exactly?

    After a lackluster first half in their quarterfinal against the fifth-seeded Fort Knox Lady Eagles, senior forwards Abbi Goedde and Alexis Johnson combined for 22 second-half points as the fourth-seeded Lady Bruins pulled away for a 55-38 in the 17th District Tournament at John Hardin.

  • FRIDAY PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP:...

    Junior guard Brandon Price scored 28 points to lead visiting John Hardin to its fifth straight win Friday night in a 64-57 victory over the Taylor County Cardinals.

  • SATURDAY PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP...

    The Fort Knox Lady Eagles had their two-game winning streak snapped in their regular-season finale.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Early in the first quarter, Meade County coach Josh Hurt thought the Lady Waves looked deflated.

    Then, their bench – and freshman forward Morgan Turner – came to the rescue and pumped them up.

  • PREP WRESTLING: LaRue's Ray...

    LEXINGTON Bernard Ray stood up with 2 seconds left, realizing he finally had achieved his dream of winning a state title.

    It was the only title the once-favored LaRue County Hawks would win on this night.

    Ray, a senior, beat Johnson Central senior John Conley, 10-6 to win the 182-pound championship in the finals of Saturday’s KHSAA State Wrestling Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Alltech Arena.

  • BOYS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    Central Hardin’s vaunted 1-3-1 defense stifled Meade County into a second-half spell.

    And the Green Wave never got out of their funk Friday night.
