  • PREP CROSS COUNTRY: Area teams...

    Having never qualified for the KHSAA State Cross Country Championships, the Central Hardin Bruins are one confident bunch.

    Led by junior and reigning conference champion Josh Price, eighth-grader Christian Wright and senior Hunter Hood, the Bruins feel this is their year to be one of the teams moving on after Saturday’s Class 3-A, Region 2 meet at Bowling Green’s Kereiakes Park.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue draws tough...

    Longtime LaRue County Hawks coach Rodney Armes thinks the Wayne County Cardinals are one of the toughest three seeds in the state playoffs.

    The Cardinals are 8-2, but lost district games to top-ranked Bell County and No. 11 Corbin. LaRue County (6-4) hosts Wayne County in the first round of the Class 3-A playoffs at 7:30 tonight in Hodgenville.

    The Hawks have gone 4-1 at home this season – their only setback was a 35-14 loss to No. 2 Louisville Central on Oct. 21 – and Armes hopes that bodes well for his team tonight.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Central tries to...

    First-year Central Hardin football coach Mark Perry has tried to rack his brain for ways to handle Louisville DuPont Manual’s athleticism.

    At Elizabethtown High School, Thomas Murley won three state titles running cross country.

    He’s coming out of retirement Sunday to run in the New York City Marathon.

    Murley began running cross country for Elizabethtown in the sixth grade and continued until his senior year in 1996. He won three individual state championships and was named a Foot Locker national finalist his sophomore and senior years.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    Like Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Frank Abagnale Jr. leading on Tom Hanks’ portrayal of Carl Hanratty, Elizabethtown High School senior wide receiver Matt Morgan has been involved in a real-life on-field game of “Catch Me If You Can” with opposing defenses this season.

    Those defenders are still trying to stop him.

    Sure his Panthers have had a bad season record wise as they’re 0-10 and allowing a state-worst 58.8 points per game heading into Friday night’s Class 3-A first-round playoff game at No. 1 Bell County (10-0).

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade needs a...

    The Meade County Green Wave might be slipping and sliding into the playoffs, but junior running back John Clark thinks he knows of a way for them to regain their footing.

    Maybe all their offensive linemen need is a good, old-fashioned pre-game postseason pep talk.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: North Hardin...

    Once playoff time comes around, Aaron House turns into a rabid monster.

    The North Hardin senior offensive/defensive lineman cranks his motor until it hits supersonic gear. Those linemen that he normally just plows to the ground, well now it’s time they get pancaked.

  • ARENA FOOTBALL: Two former area...

    PHILADELPHIA – Two former area residents will soon be suiting up for the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League.

    Late last month, the Soul announced the signings of former University of Kentucky offensive linemen Zipp Duncan and Christian Johnson to the team’s roster.

  • COLLEGE SOCCER: Former E'...

    LEXINGTON — University of Kentucky women’s soccer senior Jenna Goblirsch will not return for her final year of eligibility after suffering a season-ending knee injury during the first training session of preseason, coach Jon Lipsitz announced.

  • KCAA STATE VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT...

    The North Hardin Christian Lady Falcons weren’t supposed to be playing for yet another KCAA State Volleyball Tournament championship this season.

    Not after losing 10 players from last year’s team and returning only four who had significant playing experience.
