Today's Sports


    For the last week, we have been inundated with talk about realignment. Turn on ESPN radio and the talk is about who is moving where. Go on the Internet and the story tells you who is staying and who is leaving.

    There has been talk of so-called 16-team super conferences. The landscape of college athletics seems to be on shaky ground. Universities aren’t looking at what’s best, but what can make them the most money. Look at what we heard about the last week.


    Senior Hannah Howard kept herself pretty busy Wednesday night against visiting 10th District foe Fort Knox.

    Howard scored four goals and assisted on three others to lead the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs to a 10-1 win over the Lady Eagles.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Kleber returns...

    Josh Kleber is champing at the bit, ready to get back to action after serving his two-game suspension.

    The Fort Knox senior running back was suspended for two games by the KHSAA after getting ejected from the Eagles’ 26-18 loss to Hart County on Aug. 26.

    Throw in Fort Knox’s bye week, and it’s been a long three weeks of nothing but practice for Kleber.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Top seed for...

    Two of the area’s premier volleyball teams are ready for Round 2.

    The top seed for the 17th District Tournament is up for grabs at 7:30 tonight.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: No. 1...

    Senior Sarah Greenwell and the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers will have to wait until the weekend to see how it feels to take the field for a full game as the No. 1 girls’ soccer team in the state.

    Wednesday evening against visiting 10th District rival Meade County was their first chance to experience that rush – and it lasted all of 47 minutes.

    Taking the spot of injured senior Tara Gilpin, Greenwell filled in admirably with one goal and three assists as the Lady Panthers rolled to a 10-0 mercy-rule win against the Lady Waves.

  • PREP GOLF ROUNDUP: Tuesday'...

    John Hardin’s serving was on Tuesday night and the Lady Bulldogs aced their way past 17th District rival Fort Knox.

    John Hardin totaled 17 aces and rolled to a 25-9, 25-7 win over visiting Fort Knox.

    Senior Taylor Cecil totaled team-highs of eight aces and six assists, while senior Amanda Aumack had three aces and two kills. Senior Meaghan Warsaw and junior Tori Nelson added two kills apiece, while junior Bryanna Fraley had two aces.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin'...

    When the Miami Dolphins won Super Bowl VII, their defense was called the No-Name Defense because the team’s stellar offense received most of the attention.

    John Hardin’s defense can relate. The second-ranked Bulldogs have plenty of stars on the offensive side of the ball, but it’s the defense that’s been a pleasant surprise through the first four games.
