    Elizabethtown had its four-match winning streak snapped right off the bat Friday in the Woodford County Invitational.
    But the Lady Panthers rallied for a third-place finish Saturday in the 10-team tournament.
    Boone County defeated Elizabethtown 26-24, 19-25, 15-7 in the Lady Panthers’ opening pool-play match. Then they defeated Lexington Bryan Station (25-16, 27-26), Anderson County (25-12, 25-18) and Scott County (25-19, 25-19) to advance to the medal round.


    There’s a new rivalry budding in area boys’ cross country.

    With former standout runners Andrew Stewart and John Egan now competing in college, Meade County junior Will Strickland and North Hardin sophomore Marcus Terrell have picked up where those two left off.

    GLASGOW Results from Saturday’s 23-tournament at the 6,277-yard, par-71, Glasgow Country Club:

    6. Central Hardin (322)


    After a 17-point explosion in 24 seconds in the third quarter Friday night, the Bardstown Tigers’ homecoming night sacrificial lamb – the winless Elizabethtown Panthers – probably felt like going home.


    Meade County’s heartache continues.

    After winning their first two games, the Green Wave have now lost three straight.


    The Central Hardin Bruins made it three in a row against the North Hardin Trojans.

    After the Trojans rallied to force overtime, Central Hardin held North Hardin to a field goal on its possession in overtime and senior quarterback Kevin Humphrey scored on a 1-yard run to lift the homestanding Bruins to a 27-24 victory Friday night.


    Cody Thompson put the LaRue County Hawks on his back Friday and carried them to a much-needed win.

    Thompson accounted for more than 250 all-purpose yards and scored four touchdowns to lead the host Hawks to a 38-24 win over the Nelson County Cardinals at Hawk Field.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue tries to...

    Following last week’s 32-20 loss at rival Green County, LaRue County’s Drew Newberry and Caleb Canter found themselves at the hospital getting their ankles examined.

    The backfield mates were each made to wear a walking boot – Newberry on his left foot, Canter on his right – and their status for tonight’s game against visiting Nelson County was up in the air.

    Neither is completely healthy, and longtime LaRue County coach Rodney Armes said Thursday the decision to play tonight is ultimately theirs to make.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Bruins...

    The race for the top two seeds in the Boys’ 10th District Soccer Tournament became even more muddled Thursday night.

    Senior Noah Wiersema scored two goals and assisted on another to lead the host Central Hardin Bruins to a 3-0 win over Meade County in a crucial district game.

    Central Hardin, North Hardin and Meade County are all 3-1 in district play.

    “It keeps us alive for a bye, and that’s really important in the district tournament,” said Bruins coach Mike Wiersema.

  • PREP CROSS COUNTRY: Price twins...

    Josh and Michael Price love to compete against each other, no matter what they’re doing.

    Whether on the track or a cross country course, the Central Hardin juniors thrive on that sibling rivalry.

    Josh, the younger twin by 10 minutes, already has a leg up on Michael in cross country. Josh began running a year before Michael, qualified for the state meet last season and was named the Boys’ Area Sophomore of the Year.
