  • BOYS' PREP GOLF: John...

    BOWLING GREEN — John Hardin senior Michael Vick and the Elizabethtown Panthers left the Bowling Green Country Club feeling disappointed, but they can take solace in the ending doesn’t ruin what both were able to accomplish this season.





    BARDSTOWN — Results from Saturday’s meet at Hillbilly Heaven:


    8. Elizabethtown (227)

    44. Shane England                           18:57.84


    The 17th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins closed the regular season Saturday by going 1-1 in a tri-match at Lexington Tates Creek.

    Central Hardin beat No. 25 Pulaski Southwestern 3-2 (19-25, 25-17, 23-25, 25-20, 15-6) and lost to No. 14 Tates Creek 3-2 (28-30, 25-15, 25-22, 22-25, 15-12).

    Senior left-side hitter Afton Conner led Central Hardin (31-4) with 28 kills, 17 digs, four aces and one block, while senior middle hitter Sydney Hall added 25 kills, six blocks, six digs and two aces.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: No. 25 Lady...

    The host Central Hardin Lady Bruins will enter the postseason with a bit of momentum after earning a draw with a top-10 team Saturday.

    No. 25 Central Hardin and No. 8 Oldham County played to a 2-2 draw. The Lady Colonels (15-3-1) have lost just once in their last eight games, while the Lady Bruins (8-6-3) snapped a two-game losing skid.

    Central Hardin freshman Rachel Mobley scored her fourth goal of the year off a pass from senior Olivia Thompson, who notched her team-leading fifth assist.


    Zeb Wilson would have been one of Nelson County’s top targets Friday night.

    Only Wilson didn’t play for the visiting Cardinals as he is a Meade County junior defensive back.

    Wilson had a career-high three interceptions and senior linebacker Brandon Kennedy added another as the Green Wave shut down the state’s top passing attack in a 43-7 win at Hamilton Field.


    Since scoring 47 points in their season-opening win over the Adair County, the LaRue County Hawks have been in an offensive slumber.

    Entering Friday night, LaRue County had scored just 57 points in its next five games and gone 1-4 in that stretch.

    The hibernating Hawks woke up against Class 3-A, District 3 foe Henry County.

    Three running backs – seniors Caleb Canter, Kelton Ford and Matthew Hornback – each rushed for more than 100 yards as LaRue County crushed the Wildcats, 42-15.


    With a sophomore and first-year starter running his offense, Central Hardin coach Mark Perry knows Koree Krupinski is going to experience a few growing pains along the way.

    Such was the case Friday night against the Louisville Western Warriors.

    Krupinski threw four interceptions, but the Warriors couldn’t convert them into points as Central Hardin forced them into three punts and one turnover on downs en route to a 27-6 win at Bruin Field.


    North Hardin senior Kirk Oxendine had a career night Friday night at Louisville Iroquois.

    Entering the game with 10 receptions for 191 yards and two touchdowns, the receiver caught five passes from junior Andrew Rugerio for 206 yards and four touchdowns as the Trojans earned a Class 5-A, District 3 win against the Raiders, 41-0.

    Oxendine accounted for the Trojans’ first four touchdowns, scoring on a 26-yard reception in the first quarter, 41 and 54-yard receptions in the second quarter and on a 61-yard pass in the third quarter.


    LOUISVILLE Hunter Sullivan survived his trial by fire Friday night. The Elizabethtown Panthers didn’t survive theirs against the Class 3-A juggernaut.

    A freshman, Sullivan became the fifth player to play quarterback for the Panthers after senior Josh Williams suffered a high ankle sprain early in Elizabethtown’s 55-0 loss to the host Central Yellowjackets.
