  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Lady Hawks down...

    HORSE CAVE — The LaRue County Lady Hawks will get another opportunity to play for a district title after sweeping tournament host Caverna in the 18th District Volleyball Tournament semifinals Monday night.

    Junior middle hitter Ivy Brown had nine digs, seven aces, five blocks and a match-high 19 kills to lead second-seeded LaRue County to a 25-10, 25-7, 25-23 win – and a rematch with longtime nemesis Green County in tonight’s title match at 7 – over the third-seeded Lady Colonels.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: North...

    Lexi Lopez more than showed her offensive skills Monday night, but both the North Hardin junior midfielder and veteran Lady Trojans coach Hayley Yourous admitted the player’s celebration skills could use some work.

    Lopez assisted her team’s first two goals and scored the latter two, getting involved in all of North Hardin’s goals, as she led the fourth-seeded Lady Trojans to a 4-0 win over the fifth-seeded Fort Knox Lady Eagles in the Girls’ 17th District Soccer Tournament quarterfinal at Troy Wade Field in Radcliff.

  • OPINION: Good week to be a fan...

    After one tremendous week for high school sports, another one is here. If you’re a fan of high school sports, this is an exciting time of year.

    Last week, area golfers and teams took center stage with the state tournaments at Bowling Green Country Club. This week, district soccer and volleyball tournaments take place. And the week concludes with three area rivalry games in football.

  • 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...

    STOCK UP

    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.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER:...

    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.
