  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Lady Trojans...

    As passing mistakes and serving errors mounted, first-year North Hardin coach Richard Lawson was getting frustrated. So was senior setter Leah Shartzer.

    This wasn’t the North Hardin team they had grown accustomed to seeing on the court, and this certainly wasn’t the same Fort Knox squad the Lady Trojans swept twice during the regular season.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Panthers...

    Travis Richardson posted up against the Fort Knox Eagles on Monday night.

    Helping ensure his team one more home game this season, the Elizabethtown junior midfielder had one goal and one assist – hammering a close-range shot off the left post and in to cap off the scoring — to lead the fourth-seeded Panthers to a 3-0 win against the fifth-seeded Eagles in the Boys’ 17th District Soccer Tournament quarterfinal at Doug Smith Memorial Stadium in Elizabethtown.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Monday Morning...


    Take your pick. Central Hardin bounced back to top Louisville Western after a 48-0 drubbing at the hands of John Hardin. LaRue County and Meade County both came off bye weeks and posted victories. Meade County shut down Nelson County’s air assault to gain some momentum heading into its only district game. LaRue County’s win was huge considering it was a district game. And North Hardin picked up a much-needed victory to gain a playoff spot. It was a good weekend for area teams.


  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: District...

    With more than a week in the regular season, Central Hardin senior libero Courtney Helton admits she and the No. 13 Lady Bruins learned a valuable lesson.

    Too much cockiness can lead them to trouble.

    Central Hardin suffered its first loss in more than a month, falling in three sets to No. 24 South Oldham in its opening match in the Jefferson County Invitational. The Lady Bruins believed their own hype and it sent a shockwave of a message to them.


    It’s redemption time for the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.

    In the last three years, they’ve had one long winning streak snapped by one 17th District rival and another unbeaten streak ended by another district foe.

    Plus, less than two weeks ago, Elizabethtown suffered its worst home loss in more than a decade when it blew a 1-0 second-half lead in a surprising 8-1 thrashing at the hands of the Scott County Lady Cardinals.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: District...

    With all due respect to Clint Black, Jim Stone feels the ship has come in for his North Hardin Trojans. It may sail right out of Radcliff and catch a warm trade wind into the region tournament – finally.

    With an unbeaten regular-season record against their four 17th District rivals, the top-seeded Trojans seem primed to end their region tournament drought as the district tournament gets underway tonight at T.K. Stone Middle School’s Doug Smith Memorial Stadium.

  • BOYS' PREP GOLF: John...

    BOWLING GREEN — John Hardin senior Michael Vick and the Elizabethtown Panthers left the Bowling Green Country Club feeling disappointed, but they can take solace in the ending doesn’t ruin what both were able to accomplish this season.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: No. 25 Lady...

    The host Central Hardin Lady Bruins will enter the postseason with a bit of momentum after earning a draw with a top-10 team Saturday.

    No. 25 Central Hardin and No. 8 Oldham County played to a 2-2 draw. The Lady Colonels (15-3-1) have lost just once in their last eight games, while the Lady Bruins (8-6-3) snapped a two-game losing skid.

    Central Hardin freshman Rachel Mobley scored her fourth goal of the year off a pass from senior Olivia Thompson, who notched her team-leading fifth assist.
