    In a rematch from last season’s 5th Region Tournament quarterfinals, Bardstown Bethlehem once again held the advantage over the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.

    Visiting Bethlehem rallied after losing the first two sets to hand Elizabethtown its second loss in three matches with a five-set victory Thursday, 22-25, 16-25, 25-17, 25-23, 15-13.

    Senior Kate Hula led Elizabethtown (10-3) with eight kills, seven aces and two blocks, while senior Brittany Stokan chipped in with eight kills, four blocks and two aces.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Late...

    Taylor Yates made a mistake Thursday night, but veteran North Hardin Trojans Jim Stone coach will surely let it slide.

    A junior midfielder, Yates was supposed to finish off a diving header during his back-post run on senior left outside defender Chaffin Blair’s high lofted ball from the left wing.

    The finish was nice. The header? Nope.

  • PREP GOLF ROUNDUP: Wednesday...





    SHEPHERDSVILLE — Results from Wednesday’s Hardin-Bullitt Challenge at the par-36 Heritage Hill Golf Course. The top six scores from each county comprise the team scores:

    Hardin County 240, Bullitt County 265

  • PREP FOOTBALL: North Hardin...

    The North Hardin Trojans figure after their season-opening 56-33 loss to Greenwood in the Joe Jaggers Bowl they have nowhere to go but up.

    It’s not the way the Trojans planned to begin the season after a 6-6 season which saw them reach the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2004. But the main goal is learning from what went wrong and correcting it.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Green Wave look...

    There’s no doubt Meade County coach Larry Mofield respects the dominance and tradition carried on by the John Hardin football program.


    Junior forward Anne Hare and senior midfielder Courtney Boyd each had a hat trick as the host John Hardin Lady Bulldogs rolled to a 7-0 win over 5th Region rival LaRue County on Wednesday.

    Junior Lexi Mink also scored for John Hardin (5-3-1), which won its second straight.

    Senior keeper and junior reserve Lexi Legaspi combined for one save.

    The Lady Hawks (3-3-1) lost for the second time in four games. Senior keeper Kasey Wells made 13 saves.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Meade,...

    Don’t tell Jaycee Serrano games against Hardin County teams don’t matter to the Meade County Lady Waves anymore.

    Just because they’re no longer in the same district with the likes of Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, John Hardin and North Hardin doesn’t mean matchups against those teams are any less significant to the Lady Waves sophomore striker.

    Serrano score twiced and senior forward Allie Backstrom and junior midfielder Micaela Ray also scored as visiting Meade County and North Hardin played to a 4-4 tie Wednesday at Troy Wade Field.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: John Hardin...

    John Hardin got its revenge.

    All those service and serve-receive troubles that plagued the Lady Bulldogs against 17th District rival North Hardin in their five-set season-opener didn’t return again.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Wilson...

    Elizabethtown’s offensive plan bordered on insanity Wednesday night against the homestanding and two-time defending 5th Region Tournament champion Central Hardin Lady Bruins. The ninth-ranked Lady Panthers kept trying to do the same thing and kept getting the same result.

    Natalie Fiepke and Dani Wilson finally changed that.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin faces...

    Undefeated starts are nothing new for the John Hardin Bulldogs, who have won their first two games of the season six consecutive times and nine of the last 11 years.

    Coach Mark Brown doesn’t know, though, how good the Bulldogs actually are. They’ve beaten Lexington Henry Clay and West Jessamine, both of which are 0-2. He said the next two games – at Meade County and Boyle County – will be a good measuring stick to know where the Bulldogs stand.
