  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    If the Elizabethtown Panthers want to avoid another long trip to Bell County for the first round of the Class 3-A playoffs, they must take care of business at 7:30 tonight as they entertain District 3 rival Henry County.

    If Henry County wins, the Wildcats (2-6) will be the No. 3 seed and play at second-seeded Wayne County when the playoffs open Nov. 2.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Central still a...

    This may be one of the weirdest circumstances second-year Central Hardin coach Mark Perry has faced.

  • PREP CROSS COUNTRY: Central...

    Inspired in part by taking his team to the Memphis Twilight each year, North Hardin girls’ cross country coach John Russell wanted to create a similar race in this area.

    After more than a year of planning and with help from area rivals Elizabethtown and John Hardin, the Central Kentucky Run for the Gold is ready for its debut Saturday night at the Elizabethtown Sports Park.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Eagles turn focus...

    With their playoff hopes dashed in last week’s loss to Louisville Shawnee, the Fort Knox Eagles will try to spoil things for the Christian Academy of Louisville Centurions.

    Christian Academy (6-2) has already locked up the Class 2-A, District 4 title and is looking to run through district play undefeated when it travels to McAdams Field tonight at 7:30.

    More importantly, second-year coach Shawn Thompson just wants to end the season in a positive way. Since beating Hart County in Week 2, the Eagles (1-7) have lost six straight.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Green Wave...

    Jake Wilson loves a good rivalry game.

    Be it Central Hardin, John Hardin or North Hardin, the Meade County senior quarterback thinks there aren’t many things better than lining up against a rival on a Friday night.

    That’s why Wilson especially likes when the Green Wave face the Trojans. There’s so much history and tradition in this rivalry that gets Wilson pumped up when the teams meet.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Minor tweaks help...

    Some minor tweaks to their offensive line have sparked the LaRue County Hawks’ ground game each of the past two weeks.

    The Hawks have had three running backs eclipse the 100-yard mark in wins over Class 3-A, District 3 rivals Henry County and Elizabethtown since first-year coach Josh Jaggers made some adjustments up front.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION SOCCER...

    Two years of postseason heartbreak was enough for the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers. They were determined to get back to the state soccer tournament after coming up short in 2010 and ’11.

    Thanks to sophomore Dani Wilson being in the right place at the right time on a second-half goal and some superb passing from senior Lexy Hazle, the Lady Panthers are still rolling right along.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION SOCCER...

    BARDSTOWN — With Queen’s “We Are The Champions” blaring from the Cardinal Stadium loudspeakers, the North Hardin Trojans hugged, high-fived, sent their pointer fingers toward the sky and reacted to their many fans in attendance.

    It was a fitting celebration and coronation for Devin Sowells and the Trojans, who are the Boys’ 5th Region Soccer Tournament’s champions for the first time since 1991.

  • 5TH REGION VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT...

    LEBANON – Senior middle hitter Sydney Hall called it beautiful history.

    The No. 17 Central Hardin Lady Bruins reached an unprecedented feat, recording their third straight 5th Region Volleyball Tournament title Thursday night.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION SOCCER...

    Since Madison Conway suffered a season-ending ACL tear Aug. 29, Elizabethtown senior Abby Patterson said she hasn’t been a factor on corner kicks as she was when Conway was still taking them for the Lady Panthers.

    So Patterson is finding others ways to be effective instead.
