    The John Hardin Bulldogs were paying attention during Monday’s practice when Coach Mark Wells was discussing what they needed to do in order to be successful against the Central Hardin Bruins.

    Need proof?

    The Bulldogs led from wire to wire, jumping out to an 8-0 lead, and held on for a 58-51 victory over the Bruins in a 17th District game Tuesday night on Central Hardin’s Terry Buckles Court.


    The John Hardin Bulldogs were one of the best teams in the 5th Region last year, but they’ve started off a little slow this year.

    But the Bulldogs are showing signs of turning it around. They’ve won their last three games heading into tonight’s showdown at Central Hardin. The game is set for 7:30. The slow start could be attributed to injuries and getting its players late from football, but the Bulldogs said it’s time to start winning.


    Elizabethtown coach James Haire is aware of the struggles North Hardin has had early this season, but he understands the Trojans are a different team than they were in December.

    North Hardin is coming off an 85-36 thrashing of Fort Knox to snap an eight-game losing skid. Senior point guard Jermaine Ruttley played for the first time since the season opener, scoring 21 points and pulling down nine rebounds.


    Junior forward Chanel Roberts scored 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, and senior guard Brianna Woodson scored 21 points as the host North Hardin Lady Trojans cruised to a 69-43 win over Oldham County on Monday.

    Woodson also had six rebounds, five steals and four assists for North Hardin (13-3), which won for the sixth time in seven games.

    Eighth-grade guard Tamiah Stanford added 13 points and four steals, while sophomore guard Kiera Jones had seven points and four assists.



    The Adair County Lady Indians’ long winning streak ended on the road Saturday night with a crashing thud.

    Eighth-grade forward Erin Boley scored a game-high 16 points and senior guard Kaylyn Cecil and sophomore guard Kinsey Mudd scored 11 points each as the host Elizabethtown Lady Panthers hammered Adair County, 74-39.

    Boley led Elizabethtown (12-2) in scoring for the second straight night, while Cecil and Mudd combined to go 10-for-10 at the foul line.

    The Central Hardin baseball team had another whirlwind day when the Bruins visited the state Capitol in Frankfort on Thursday. But that shouldn’t come as a surprise. It’s been that way since they won the KHSAA state tournament in June.

    The Bruins received an invitation from state Sen. Dennis Parrett, D-Elizabethtown, to come to Frankfort to honor the state champions. Central Hardin’s championship was the first state title for a Hardin County School in baseball, basketball or football.
