  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue County...

    LaRue County has already gotten over last week’s 28-0 road loss to the Shelby County Rockets. Yet last year’s 21-20 road loss to the Spencer County Bears is still a sore spot for the Hawks.

    Last year, the Hawks outgained the Bears in yards, 260-230, and blew a couple of leads to allow the Bears to end a 19-game losing streak dating to 2009. The win was the first for Spencer County coach Mike Marksbury, a former Fort Knox assistant.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins adjust to...

    If Central Hardin struggled to stop Grayson County’s rushing attack, just think what Elizabethtown senior running back Josh Williams could do.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Lady Bruins...

    After a quick first-set victory, the Central Hardin Lady Bruins had a second-set letdown for the second consecutive match.

    Their lack of focus proved first-year coach Bill Rineker’s point.

  • PREP GOLF ROUNDUP: Thursday...






    VINE GROVE — Results from Thursday’s nine-hole match at the par-36 Lincoln Trail Country Club:

    Meade County

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Knox turns focus...

    After knocking off longtime rival Elizabethtown in the 2011 season opener, the Fort Knox Eagles celebrated.

    And rightfully so. Teams should celebrate a win over a rival. But second-year coach Shawn Thompson thought the Eagles should have been flagged for excessive celebration.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Meade downs...

    Senior defender Jacob Waldecker scored with 53 seconds left Thursday night, giving the Meade County Green Wave an insurance goal in a 3-1 win over former district foe Elizabethtown.

    Senior midfielder Chase Long scored on a penalty kick in the first half and senior midfielder Zach Ledford also scored off an assist from Waldecker as Meade County extended its unbeaten streak to seven games.

    Senior keeper Alex Fackler made four saves for the Green Wave (5-0-2), who finished with 11 shots on frame.


    In a rematch from last season’s 5th Region Tournament quarterfinals, Bardstown Bethlehem once again held the advantage over the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.

    Visiting Bethlehem rallied after losing the first two sets to hand Elizabethtown its second loss in three matches with a five-set victory Thursday, 22-25, 16-25, 25-17, 25-23, 15-13.

    Senior Kate Hula led Elizabethtown (10-3) with eight kills, seven aces and two blocks, while senior Brittany Stokan chipped in with eight kills, four blocks and two aces.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Late...

    Taylor Yates made a mistake Thursday night, but veteran North Hardin Trojans Jim Stone coach will surely let it slide.

    A junior midfielder, Yates was supposed to finish off a diving header during his back-post run on senior left outside defender Chaffin Blair’s high lofted ball from the left wing.

    The finish was nice. The header? Nope.

  • PREP GOLF ROUNDUP: Wednesday...





    SHEPHERDSVILLE — Results from Wednesday’s Hardin-Bullitt Challenge at the par-36 Heritage Hill Golf Course. The top six scores from each county comprise the team scores:

    Hardin County 240, Bullitt County 265

  • PREP FOOTBALL: North Hardin...

    The North Hardin Trojans figure after their season-opening 56-33 loss to Greenwood in the Joe Jaggers Bowl they have nowhere to go but up.

    It’s not the way the Trojans planned to begin the season after a 6-6 season which saw them reach the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2004. But the main goal is learning from what went wrong and correcting it.
