  • BOYS' PREP GOLF: Jury...

    BOWLING GREEN — Elizabethtown freshman Kyle Jury had a hard time putting into words what he had just accomplished.

    Jury finished tied for 23rd place after another solid round Wednesday in the Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA Boys’ State Golf Championship at Bowling Green Country Club.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Wales brings his...

    Louisville Central’s Anthony “Ace” Wales didn’t run over anybody last week and the Elizabethtown Panthers didn’t get run over for once, mainly because both parties’ bye weeks happened to coincide.

    However, both parties’ stats will change at 7:30 Friday night at Elizabethtown’s Doug Smith Memorial Stadium as Wales leads his Yellowjackets (4-2) against the host Panthers (0-6) in both teams’ Class 3-A, District 3 opener.


    Host North Bullitt scored twice in the second half Wednesday to pull away for a 3-1 win over the North Hardin Lady Trojans.

    The Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA Boys’ State Golf Championship began with such promise.

    Elizabethtown freshman Kyle Jury, who teed off in the first group of the day on the first hole, settled down after a shaky front nine to fire a 6-over-par 78 on Tuesday at Bowling Green Country Club.

    “This year I was not as nervous as I was last year,” said Jury, who was making in his second consecutive appearance at State. “I still had some butterflies in my stomach.”


    The 13th-ranked Owensboro Apollo E-Gals avenged a loss last week to Central Hardin with a 25-13, 25-22 road win Tuesday night against the No. 14 Lady Bruins.

    Central Hardin fell to 26-5, while Apollo moved to 20-11. Central Hardin beat Apollo, 25-22, 27-25 on Saturday in the Jefferson County Invitational Tournament at the Ohio Valley Volleyball Center in Louisville.

    No statistics were available.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: North hopes to...

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Lady Panthers...

    Elizabethtown volleyball coach Tim Hinkle was relaxed throughout the Lady Panthers’ senior night.

  • BOYS' PREP GOLF: Area...

    Kyle Jury doesn’t consider himself much of a morning person, but the Elizabethtown freshman is going to try to impersonate one today as he is one of the first three players to tee off in the 106-competitor Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA Boys’ State Golf Championship.

    Jury is in an 8 a.m. threesome with East Jessamine senior Nick McCarthy and Adair County senior Van Giles for the first round of State, which is being contested for the seventh consecutive year at the 6,700-yard, par-72 Bowling Green Country Club.
