  • PREP BOWLING: Great balls of...

    Andrew Boyles remembers the times he’d go out to Dix-E-Town Lanes with his friends and he’d be happy if he broke 100.

    Those memories really aren’t so distant but now, the North Hardin High School senior gets a bit peeved if he doesn’t reach at least 140.


    Tonight’s matchup between the Elizabethtown Panthers and John Hardin Bulldogs might as well be billed as the battle of the boards.

  • ON CAMPUS: Dickerson records...

    Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology senior forward Alisa Dickerson, a former Elizabethtown High School standout, recorded her 23rd career double-double for the Engineers as they earned a 55-44 win Saturday in Cincinnati against Mount St. Joseph.

    Dickerson scored 21 points with a game-high 12 rebounds for Rose-Hulman.

  • PREP WRESTLING: LaRue County...

    The LaRue County Hawks’ quest for another State Duals wrestling championship started strong Saturday, but fizzled late.

    After rolling through their three pool-play matches and then their semifinal, the Hawks suffered a 39-23 loss to Union County in the championship of the annual 16-team tournament at Lexington Henry Clay High School.

    The final match began at 138 pounds and LaRue County led 23-15 after the heavyweights before getting blanked the rest of the final.


    John Hardin High School senior swimmer Dalton Hardesty has a serious competitive edge.

    Just ask his friend and practice teammate, Elizabethtown senior swimmer Emma Coakley.

    They don’t shy away from any challenges.

    Since they were 12 years old, the two have contested each other to a variety of duels – ranging from individual races to report card grades.

    Coakley used to own the water and dominate with her smarts. Five years later, Hardesty has started to curb that trend. He’s taking over and winning the pride battle.


    Juniors Brandon Price and Daveon Greene took control Saturday night and helped guide the John Hardin Bulldogs to a home win.

    Price and Greene finished with 28 points each to help John Hardin pick up a 79-71 victory over Shelbyville Collins.

    The Bulldogs (11-7) have won three of their last four games. They dominated this one early on, outscoring the Titans 23-9 in the second quarter to take a 45-24 halftime lead.

    John Hardin was outscored by Collins by 11 points in the third and two in the fourth but still hung on.


    The Central Hardin Lady Bruins ended a four-game losing streak as they rolled to a 77-35 home victory Saturday night over 17th District rival Fort Knox.

    Central Hardin (8-15 overall, 3-5 district) raced out to a 23-0 lead after the end of the first quarter and never looked back.

    Senior forward Abbie Goedde finished with a double-double of 17 points and 10 rebounds. Sophomore guard Aislynn Barnes added 14 points and a team-high six assists, while senior forward Alexis Johnson had 11 points and senior guard Kasey Smallwood had 10. 

  • PREP SWIMMING: Elizabethtown...





    FORTKNOX — Results from Saturday’s 16-team tournament at Fort Knox High School:


      1. Central Hardin                          239.50 points


    Veteran Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd loves the bang-up job his banged-up Lady Panthers have done this season against 17th District teams.

    However, he does wish his young and depleted squad would cool it with the close calls.

    Up 17 against North Hardin with less than 11 minutes to play Saturday night, host Elizabethtown let its big lead dwindle to one possession four times before holding on for a 57-51 win.
