  • BOYS' 10TH DISTRICT SOCCER...

    Midway through the first half of Monday night’s opening quarterfinal of the Boys’ 10th District Soccer Tournament at Central Hardin, Meade County coach Matt Pollock approached the midfield line, kneeled and questioned his third-seeded Green Wave.

    “How many chances are we going to get, guys?” Pollock asked before quickly adding, “And how many of them are we going to waste?”

    The answers, unless he was being rhetorical or sarcastic, were a whole lot and quite a few.

  • BOYS' 10TH DISTRICT SOCCER...

    This week’s Boys’ 10th District Soccer Tournament at Central Hardin is a lot like the Kentucky Lottery – somebody’s gonna win, might as well be you.

    But who is that you?

  • GIRLS' 10TH DISTRICT SOCCER...

    North Hardin showed free can still be valuable in the Girls’ 10th District Soccer Tournament’s first quarterfinal Sunday at John Hardin.

    The fifth-seeded Lady Trojans cashed in on a pair of free kicks to upset the fourth-seeded Meade County Lady Waves, 2-0.

    “We’ve been concentrating on corner kicks and other set pieces and it finally paid off. It’s just that it took all year,” said North Hardin coach Hayley Yourous.

  • GIRLS' 10TH DISTRICT SOCCER...

    Hannah Howard is dangerous close to the goal. Macy Higdon is effective far from it.

    Together, the John Hardin senior duo was too much Sunday for the sixth-seeded Fort Knox Lady Eagles as one of the two was involved in each of their team’s six goals as the third-seeded and tournament host Lady Bulldogs recorded a 6-0 shutout in the Girls’ 10th District Soccer Tournament’s second quarterfinal.

  • GIRLS' STATE GOLF...

    BOWLING GREEN — The range of emotions between North Hardin junior Lydia Gumm and the Central Hardin Lady Bruins were on different ends of the spectrum following the Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA Girls’ State Golf Championship on Saturday.

    Gumm was feeling frustrated and dejected after tying for second place in the state tournament for the third time. She was also the runner-up in 2006 and ’08.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central aims...

    Central Hardin has run this town in volleyball the past two years.

    The Lady Bruins have finished unbeaten in regular-season district play each of the last two seasons, taken home a 17th District Volleyball Tournament championship and won 19 straight district matches – including the postseason. 

    As this year’s district tournament approaches, it’s hard to argue how they won’t stay queens of the court again.

    District and region coaches have yet to figure out how to slow down the No. 14 Lady Bruins’ quick middlea attack.

  • GIRLS' 10TH DISTRICT SOCCER...

    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins made history last year, advancing to their first state tournament elite eight.

    They’ve followed up that successful campaign with their highest ranking in school history (fourth) and a school-record 13-game winning streak leading to a program-best 18-1 record in the regular season.

    And somehow, some way, their chief rival found a way to overshadow all of that.

  • GIRLS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    In dominating fashion Saturday, the South Oldham Lady Dragons showed why they’re a trendy pick to win the Class 2-A state cross country title next month in Lexington.

    Junior Grace Whitworth won the 38-runner race and South Oldham had six runners crack the top 10 to win the four-squad North Hardin Invitational at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

  • BOYS' PREP CROSS COUNTRY:...

    North Hardin sophomore Marcus Terrell knew he was in trouble when he looked ahead and saw South Oldham senior Caleb Chappell pulling away from him on every uphill climb Saturday morning.

    Terrell would close the gap on the downhills only to watch Chappell widen his lead each time the duo ascended a hill during the North Hardin Invitational at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

    Chappell won the 66-runner race in 17 minutes, 22.30 seconds – more than 9 seconds ahead of Terrell, who finished in 17:31.76.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: LaRue...

    Senior Cody Thompson scored in every quarter, running for three touchdowns and catching another, on Friday night as the surging LaRue County Hawks pulled away from the Henry County Wildcats, 40-21 in both teams’ Class 3-A, District 3 opener.

    Thompson had scoring runs of 33, 9 and 29 in the first three quarters and caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Slade Owens in the fourth quarter. Thompson finished with 187 yards on 14 carries as the Hawks won their third consecutive district opener.
