    Sometimes Anne Hare’s jaw feels like a machine. With as much metal as she has in that part of her body, that’s not surprising.

    Fittingly the offensive play this season for the speedy John Hardin junior striker has matched her jaw – machine-like.

    Less than two years after a four-wheeler accident during winter holiday break sent her to a Louisville hospital and forced her to have immediate surgery – not to mention miss the next month of school – Hare is flourishing for the Lady Bulldogs.


    The 17th, 18th and 11th district tournament seedings and pairings are set for next week.

    For the fifth straight year, No. 13 Central Hardin (8-0 in district) owns the top seed for the 17th District Tournament.

    Fourth-seeded North Hardin (3-5) meets fifth-seeded Fort Knox (0-8) at 6 p.m. Oct. 8 at Elizabethtown. The winner plays the three-time defending champ Lady Bruins at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 9, while second-seeded Elizabethtown (6-2) takes on third-seeded John Hardin (3-5) at 7 p.m.

    The championship is set for 6:30 p.m. Oct. 10.


    A tradition unlike any other – a high school postseason tournament starting on a Sunday – has come to an end.

    Bucking the trend from the past several seasons, neither of the 17th District boys’ or girls’ soccer tournaments will open this coming Sunday. Instead, each tournament’s lone quarterfinal will be held the following Monday evening.



    The John Hardin Bulldogs are starting to come together. Their offense is clicking because everyone is getting more comfortable in their roles. The defense was sluggish early in the season but is beginning to play like a typical John Hardin unit. The Bulldogs still have room for improvement and they will be the first ones to say that.

    The 17th, 18th and 11th district tournament seedings and pairings are set for next week.

    For the fifth straight year, No. 13 Central Hardin (8-0 in district matches) owns the top seed for the 17th District Tournament.


    Their 18-match winning streak was snapped in their first pool-play match Friday night, but the 13th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins rallied Saturday to win the silver division of the 24-team Jefferson County Invitational Tournament.

    After falling to No. 24 South Oldham in three sets (25-22, 23-25, 25-20), the Lady Bruins swept Christian County (25-16, 25-14) before reeling off three wins Saturday in the silver division bracket at the Ohio Valley Volleyball Center in Louisville.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: John Hardin...

    Senior defender Shiann Washington scored twice and the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs won their sixth straight with a 7-0 victory over visiting Breckinridge County on Saturday.

    Senior midfielder Courtney Boyd, senior forward Alex Harrison, senior defender Samantha Johnson, junior midfielder Katie Sivulich and freshman midfielder Kienna Morris also scored for John Hardin (10-5-1).

    Junior keeper Alexis Legaspi didn’t face a shot on goal as the Lady Bulldogs outshot the Lady Tigers, 17-0.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Bulldogs...

    Junior Brandon Peck’s scoring spree led John Hardin to its fifth straight win Thursday night.

    Peck scored four times and sophomore forward Jackson Kirschner added two goals in the second half as visiting John Hardin rolled to a 10-0 win over 17th District rival Fort Knox.

    Junior forward Jeremy Garcia had a goal and three assists, while sophomore defender Jon Westwood, junior wing Zack Shortt and senior defender Brandon Shugan also scored. Sophomore forward Christian Bonifield had three assists for the Bulldogs (11-5-2, 3-1 district).


    Senior setter Abbey Sorrells had 41 assists, three digs, two kills, one ace and one block to lead the 13th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins to a four-set victory over 5th Region rival Marion County on Thursday, 25-10, 21-25, 25-12, 25-14.

    Senior middle hitter Sydney Hall and left-side hitter Afton Conner combined for 30 kills and 12 digs. Senior libero Courtney Helton chipped in with 21 digs, sophomore left-side hitter Lauren Christman added eight kills.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Knox faces...

    If second-year Fort Knox coach Shawn Thompson thought Fort Campbell was an explosive team, wait till he sees what the Bardstown Tigers can do.

    The Tigers, ranked fifth in Class 2-A in the latest Associated Press poll, are averaging 48.6 points per game while limiting their opponents to 17.6 a game.

    Bardstown (5-0) is coming off a 51-7 thrashing of District 4 foe Louisville Shawnee – with all 51 points coming in the first half behind a barrage of Shawnee turnovers.
