  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Green Wave...

    Junior Chase Long scored twice and the Meade County Green Wave snapped a two-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over visiting Marion County on Thursday.

    Both of Long’s goals came in the first half for the Green Wave (9-6-1), who had lost 5-of-6.

    Junior keeper Alex Fackler made eight saves as Meade County outshot Marion County, 19-8.

    UP NEXT: Meade County hosts John Hardin at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

  • PREP GOLF ROUNDUP: Thursday...





    ELIZABETHTOWN Results from Thursday's match at the par-36 front nine at Pine Valley Golf Resort:

  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue looks to...

    LaRue County defensive coordinator Josh Jaggers has lost a lot of sleep this week in getting his Hawks prepared to face the Warren East Raiders.

    Stopping the Raiders (4-1) isn’t going to be easy.

    Warren East, which has won three straight entering tonight’s game at 8 in Hodgenville, presents a multi-pronged offensive attack that could give the Hawks (2-3) fits.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins show Perry...

    Central Hardin first-year coach Mark Perry was able to see something from his Bruins for the first time during his tenure last Friday. And it’s something the Bruins can continue to build upon moving forward.

    The Bruins struggled offensively in the first half against the North Hardin Trojans, managing only 6 yards of total offense. They rebounded to take a 21-14 lead before North Hardin scored with less than a minute left to force overtime. After the Trojans took a 24-21 lead, Central Hardin scored a touchdown to pull out the victory.


    Six weeks into the season and we’re finally getting games that matter. That’s right: district games – for some – begin tonight.

    For five- and six-team districts, games begin to count as far as playoffs are concerned. North Hardin travels to Grayson County for a Class 5-A, District 3 game, while John Hardin goes to Louisville Iroquois. In Class 2-A, District 4, Fort Knox hosts Louisville DeSales.

    Meanwhile, Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, LaRue County and Meade County all are still two weeks away from starting district games.


    The Central Kentucky-Western Kentucky Challenge at Doug Smith Memorial Stadium in Elizabethtown has been less a four-game showcase hosted by the currently ranked No. 1 Lady Panthers and more of a domination by the more eastern squads.

    Heading into Saturday’s fifth annual event, Central Kentucky is a commanding 10-2-3 in the event. There were only three games in 2006 and the 2007 event was rained out.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central Hardin...

    Central Hardin locked up the top seed for the 17th District Volleyball Tournament. But the No. 14 Lady Bruins didn’t drop district rival Elizabethtown with their normal killing barrage or high-energy offensive attack.

    Instead, they said dig this.

    Junior Courtney Helton totaled a team-high eight digs, while senior Cheyenne Mills and junior Sydney Hall combined for seven blocks to lead host Central Hardin to a 25-19, 25-15 victory over Elizabethtown on Thursday night.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Wiersema...

    As a forward, Noah Wiersema likes goals. As a goalkeeper, Kyle Weiner does not.

    The combination of those two Central Hardin players having solid nights Thursday made for a tough evening for the host John Hardin Bulldogs as Wiersema was involved in his team’s first two goals and Weiner continued his torrid play in net as the visiting Bruins rolled to a 4-0 win in their 10th District finale.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Wounded...

    Adam Billings recently took a look at the preseason team photo of his first Elizabethtown Panthers squad and shook his head in disbelief.

    Of the 36 players in present for that photo, nine players – that’s a fourth of the roster, folks – will not be on the Doug Smith Memorial Stadium sideline for various reasons when the Panthers (0-5) host northern Kentucky small-school power Beechwood (3-1) for homecoming at 8 p.m. Friday.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Central...

    With just four games left before the end of the boys’ 10th District soccer schedule, one thing is certain – nothing.

    Four of the six teams have just one loss and two of those meet at 7 tonight as the John Hardin Bulldogs (9-4-1 overall, 1-1 district) host the reigning district and 5th Region tournament champion Central Hardin Bruins (7-6, 3-1).
