    It might be a while before area high school basketball teams are at full strength.

    Meade County senior boys’ forward Cheaney Schwartz and North Hardin sophomore girls’ post Jenna Spencer are likely to miss the season with torn ACLs, while many other players are banged up.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: John...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs did exactly what they needed to do defensively to get right where they want to be.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    The Elizabethtown High School gyms will be filled Saturday with future college talent.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs celebrated senior night three weeks ago when they closed the regular season with a 32-13 victory over Boone County. But for the John Hardin seniors, Friday night will be the final time they play a game at Bulldog Stadium regardless of the outcome.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bulldogs seek...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs are no stranger to playing in region championship games despite the program being around for only 11 years. The same can’t be said for the Jeffersontown Chargers.

    The Bulldogs are playing in their fifth consecutive region title game and sixth in the last seven years. They are 3-2 in those games, including winning their last three. The Bulldogs have beaten three different opponents – Louisville Doss (2008), Oldham County (2009) and Anderson County (2010).

  • GIRLS' MIDDLE SCHOOL...

    Patty Lucas knows the T.K. Stone Lady Panthers are in good hands when Erin Boley is on the floor.

    Boley scored a game-high 21 points to lead host T.K. Stone to a 41-28 win over Stuart Pepper on Thursday in the championship of the Middle School Athletic Conference Eighth-Grade Girls’ Basketball Tournament.

  • GIRLS' MIDDLE SCHOOL...

    In a big moment Thursday night, one of East Hardin’s youngest players delivered a championship for the Lady Rebels.

    Sixth-grader Megan Kolley hit one free throw with 16.7 seconds left in overtime to help East Hardin fend off host T.K. Stone, 37-35 in the Middle School Athletic Conference Seventh-Grade Girls’ Basketball Tournament championship game.

    “I was shaking to death. I didn’t know what I was going to do,” said Kolley, who scored three points. “But I trusted in my team and we believed we could win this.”

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Will Chargers use...

    The formula for disrupting John Hardin’s offense sounds easy enough. Have nine players in the box, bring plenty of pressure and don’t let the John Hardin backs escape.

    It’s something the Bulldogs have seen plenty of the last few games, and it’s something they expect to see more down the line.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin'...

    John Hardin senior quarterback Eli Mitchell never gets caught up in numbers. He’s not worried about completions, yards and touchdowns. He refuses to allow himself to worry about those things.

    Mitchell takes the same approach with those who might want to criticize the job he does. People outside the program don’t seem to give the 6-foot-5, 205-pound quarterback enough credit. If John Hardin wins, it’s because the Bulldogs have great running backs or a great defense. The naysayers take the approach they win in spite of Mitchell.

  • PREP SWIMMING: E'town'...

    Emma Coakley had long considered Vanderbilt University the front-runner for her college destination.

    For two-plus years, the Elizabethtown High School senior swimmer figured she’d move out of state and wind up at the Southeastern Conference school. Then, a two-day visit to home state school and the University of Louisville blew her away.
