    Green County’s Micah Jones has been a thorn in the side of LaRue County for years, and the senior guard added some more frustration in her final appearance at LaRue County.

    With the No. 1 seed for the 18th District Tournament on the line, Jones poured in 26 points to go along with 10 rebounds and seven assists as the Lady Dragons pulled away in the second half for a 59-46 victory.

    Jones, a Western Kentucky signee, owns an 11-1 record against the Lady Hawks. She missed all of last year with an injury when LaRue County won both meetings.


    The LaRue County Hawks snapped out of a recent funk with a convincing 62-42 victory over the visiting Green County Dragons in an 18th District game Friday night.

    The Hawks (16-6 overall, 6-0 in district) had lost four of their previous seven games.

    LaRue County will be the top seed for the district tournament. The Hawks have won three consecutive district tournaments and they are 34-4 in the last five years in district play.


    Michelle Montgomery and the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs grew tired of hearing how they had never beaten the North Hardin Lady Trojans.

    After Friday night, that streak is ancient history.

    Montgomery, junior Desireah Mills and sophomore Nawdya Fletcher combined to hit 5-of-8 free throws in the final 25.2 seconds and host John Hardin knocked off North Hardin, 55-51 in a 17th District game at the Dawg Pound.

    The easy part, albeit not a cheap one, for Dr. Strat Warden on Friday was acquiring a piece of area history.

    The more difficult part for the retired Elizabethtown physician is deciding what to do with it.

    In what he deemed a $2,500 donation, Warden became the new and proud owner of the big “E” from half court of the old gym floor from T.K. Stone Middle School. Elizabethtown High School’s basketball teams played on the floor from 1956-71 before moving to their current location at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium at the high school.


    The Elizabethtown Panthers got into the type of groove Friday night that left most of them baffled – and left the Fort Knox Eagles flustered.

    After the teams traded a pair of baskets, Elizabethtown scored the next 37 points en route to a 93-37 win over the Eagles that allowed the Panthers to clinch the top seed outright for this month’s district tournament that they’ll host.


    On a night when Elizabethtown honored its proud past, Erin Boley and Reaunna Cleaver showed what the Lady Panthers have to look forward to in the future.

    The duo combined to score Elizabethtown’s first 27 points Friday as the depleted Lady Panthers rolled to a 76-22 win over 17th District rival Fort Knox in the first game of a rare girl/boy doubleheader at T.K. Stone Middle School.

    The only member of Elizabethtown’s varsity who still attends T.K. Stone, Boley scored her team’s first eight points.

    The Central Hardin, John Hardin and North Hardin bowling teams will compete in the first Hardin County Tournament of Champions is set for 10 a.m. Saturday at Dix-E-Town Lanes.

    ** In varsity and JV singles, each school will submit its top four boys and top four girls to bowl a three-game series. Awards will be given for highest single game and best three-game average. For JV, bowlers must be sophomores or younger and cannot compete in both varsity and JV.


    After Taylor Perkins had once again scored a game-winning goal against his team, Central Hardin coach Hal Bender joked about the Lady Bruins’ luck stopping the versatile Elizabethtown senior.

    “Man, will I be glad when that girl finally graduates because she’s a heckuva player,” Bender said Oct. 13 after Perkins scored the game’s only goal as her Lady Panthers edged the Lady Bruins in the Girls’ 10th District Soccer Tournament final at John Hardin.


    Elizabethtown attacked Marion County mercilessly in the first half.

    The Lady Panthers challenged the two-time defending 5th Region champ Lady Knights with drives, defense and a whole lot of chutzpah on their home court Thursday night.
