  • GIRLS' PREP GOLF: Gumm wins...

    The Lady Bruin Invitational has been around for a decade, but the tournament witnessed a couple things which hadn’t been accomplished the first nine years.

    North Hardin senior Lydia Gumm fired a 1-under-par 72 on Saturday at Lindsey Golf Course on Fort Knox to win the tournament for a record fourth time. Caldwell County graduate Emma Talley won the event three times.


    LEXINGTON— The John Hardin Bulldogs overcame a horrendous start Friday night to finish with the same result as the previous 10 years.

    The Bulldogs won their 11th consecutive season opener, but it didn’t come easily on Lexington Henry Clay’s John G. Heber Field at Dr. Robert J. Bell Stadium. The Devils jumped out to a 13-0 lead, but John Hardin rallied to take a 22-21 and then pulled away in the second half for a 44-27 victory.


    CAMPBELLSVILLE — LaRue County’s stable of running backs helped Josh Jaggers record his first win as the Hawks’ coach at his former home stadium.

    Seniors Caleb Canter and Matthew Hornback and junior Austin McDowell combined for five rushing touchdowns to lead LaRue County to a 47-7 rout of the Adair County Indians in Friday’s second game of the Forcht Bank Bowl at Campbellsville’s University’s Finley Stadium.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Collins staves...

    After his team was outmuscled throughout the entire first half at home Friday night, Meade County coach Larry Mofield turned to a new offense.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    After a season full of heartbreak and disappointment, maybe it figured the Elizabethtown Panthers would have to endure at least another half of some more failure in their season opener at home Friday night.

    Behind a standout effort from workhorse senior running back Josh Williams, a slow-starting but productive night from senior quarterback Austin Campbell and a markedly improved defense, the Panthers overcame four first-half turnovers and a halftime deficit to rally by the Fort Knox Eagles, 23-15 in possibly the rivals’ last meeting at Doug Smith Memorial Stadium.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: St. Catharine...


    For The News-Enterprise

    If familiarity breeds contempt, as the saying goes, then Saturday’s soccer match between the Elizabethtown Community & Technical College Barons and the St. Catharine College Patriots should be a spirited affair. On the two teams there are a combined 15 players who spent their high school careers in programs in Hardin County schools.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: ECTC Barons play...

    This weekend’s season- and program-opener for the men’s soccer team at Elizabethtown Community & Technical College is a lot like a trip to Las Vegas: Good luck winning when the house holds a big edge.

    The fledgling Barons originally thought Saturday’s 2 p.m. game against the host St. Catharine College Patriots would be against the school’s junior varsity program. Instead, the homestanding NAIA program chose to make ECTC one of its two allotted scrimmages.


    Junior middle hitter Autumn Bruner and junior outside hitter Kristen Brown combined for 12 kills as Meade County beat Grayson County in three sets Thursday, 18-25, 25-20, 25-22.

    The Lady Waves (2-1) handed the Lady Cougars (4-5) their fifth loss in six matches.

    Senior middle hitter Billie Weick added seven kills, two aces and one dig, while senior libero Bethany Roberts had nine digs and five aces.

    Junior setter Olivia Kasey chipped in with 18 assists, one dig, one ace and one kill.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: North routs...

    Sophomore forward Geoff Nelson scored twice, while junior midfielders Taylor Yates and Kevin Gray each had one goal and one assist Thursday as the host North Hardin Trojans routed the 13th-ranked Bardstown Bethlehem Eagles, 5-1.

    Senior defender Kage Rhodes also scored for the Trojans (2-0), while senior midfielder Elijah Linscott and junior midfielder Justin Musselman each had an assist.

    Senior keeper Tyler Malcolm made seven saves.
