  • PREP FOOTBALL: North hopes to...

    Kris Cornett can’t wait to plow someone into the ground.

    While five other area high school football teams played, North Hardin had the opening week off.

    The Trojans’ senior lineman acknowledged the last two weeks of practices and scrimmages have helped his unit clean up its play. But he’s ready and excited to kick off the season for real and to show everyone what their redesigned offense is about.


    The homestanding Fort Knox Lady Eagles snapped a six-match losing streak with a 25-16, 19-25, 25-23 win over 5th Region rival LaRue County on Tuesday.
    Fort Knox (1-6) beat LaRue County (2-4) for the first time since Sept. 6, 2003. The closest the Lady Eagles came to beating the Lady Hawks since was a two-set tie on Sept. 15, 2007.
    No statistics were available for Fort Knox.
    Sophomore middle hitter Ivy Brown paced LaRue County with eight kills, four blocks and two digs, while junior setter Lauren Meredith had eight assists, two aces and two digs.


    Senior Todd Lucas scored the second of his two goals on a penalty kick in the final six minutes to help the Elizabethtown Panthers avoid a major collapse in a 4-3 win Tuesday at Taylor County.
    Senior Robert Baker also scored twice for the Panthers (2-1), who outshot Taylor County 23-8 and led 3-0 at the half. Sophomore Conner Kauffield and senior Kyle Curry each had an assist for Elizabethtown.
    UP NEXT: Elizabethtown hosts No. 16 Bardstown Bethlehem at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.


    The usual suspects had an off game Tuesday night for North Hardin, but two more Trojans filled their offensive shoes against the John Hardin Bulldogs.

    Senior Ryan Caves hooked up with sophomore Ryan Vanover in the final 16 minutes and North Hardin’s defense did the rest as the Trojans recorded a 1-0 victory in both teams’ 10th District opener.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central downs...

    Waiting for high-ball kills isn’t Sydney Hall’s game.

    No, the Central Hardin High School junior volleyball player wants to put them away in speedy fashion.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins '...

    The Central Hardin Bruins have patiently waited for the 2011 season to begin, but their patience is starting to wane.

    The Bruins have gone through the preseason, attending camp at Morehead State and having two scrimmages – one against Bardstown and one at Mercer County. After beating up on each other for weeks, they are ready to face someone new.

  • PREP GOLF ROUNDUP: Monday's...






    SHEPHERDSVILLE — Results from Monday’s match at the par-36 Heritage Hill Golf Club:


  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Lady Bruins...

    Seniors Lauren Norton and Meredith Cross and sophomore Mia Wiersema each scored to lead the host Central Hardin Lady Bruins to a 4-0 win over Louisville Eastern on Monday.

    Senior Sam Donahue, junior Haley Ennis and Hailey Anderson each had an assist for the Lady Bruins (4-0), who scored their fourth goal on an own goal.

    Junior keeper Savannah Haberman made two saves.

    UP NEXT: Central Hardin plays at John Hardin at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: North Hardin...

    Justice Bayless said the North Hardin Lady Trojans are hitting their stride, while fourth-year LaRue County coach Ben Schell said it could be a month before his youthful and snakebitten team gets everything in order.

    That combination made for a frustrating evening Monday for Schell and a surprisingly easy victory for Bayless and her buddies, who cruised to a 25-17, 25-15 win over the host Lady Hawks.


    Elizabethtown pulled out a thrilling SON Cup championship game win, keeping the Lady Panthers’ unbeaten start intact.
