  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Flores...

    Ray Flores knows he has a big task ahead of him.

    Just after preseason practice started, Flores was tabbed as head coach of the Fort Knox boys’ soccer team – and given the objective of getting the program turned in the right direction.

    Flores is the team’s fourth coach in the last four seasons – and the team’s seventh since 2001. He replaces Michaela Jacobs, who was 6-12-2 last year. Fort Knox won just 19 games the past three seasons under former coaches Alex Molina, Jose Huerta and Jacobs.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Green...

    Meade County boys’ soccer coach Matt Pollock expects the first quarter of the season to be a little bumpy.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Falcons...

    Before his sixth season as head boys’ soccer coach at North Hardin Christian got underway, Josh Hardin wasn’t even sure if he would have enough players to field a team.

    Because of the low turnout, Hardin chose to cancel summer practice and the team’s annual camp at Campbellsville University. Hardin thought about having his squad compete as a club team instead of at the varsity level in the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association.

    Then school started, and the turnout increased – and Hardin’s outlook changed.

  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: North...

    Coming off a 12-8-3 record and a district tournament semifinal appearance, North Hardin boys’ soccer coach Jim Stone thinks the Trojans are in for a banner season.

    Leadership, goal-scoring, defense and unity are all there this year.


    Meade County’s girls' soccer team came so close to taking down some of the top 10th District teams last year.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Kness-...

    If you would have asked her 20 years ago, Karina Kness-Kuhl couldn’t imagine coaching a high school sport.

    That changed in late September of last season when Kness-Kuhl was chosen to replace Liz Barnes as coach of the Fort Knox girls’ soccer team.

    Fort Knox started 0-12-2 and hadn’t scored a goal in 10 games before Kness-Kuhl took over. The Lady Eagles were mercy ruled four times in that span.


    Ivy Brown and Allison Evans combined for 18 kills to lead the homestanding LaRue County Lady Hawks to a 25-15, 26-24 win over 18th District rival Caverna on Thursday.

    Brown had 10 kills and one ace, while Evans had eight kills and two blocks for the Lady Hawks (2-0 overall, 1-0 district).

    Lauren Meredith added 11 assists, and Miranda Hornback had two kills and one ace.

    UP NEXT: LaRue County plays at district rival Hart County at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central rolls...

    After Monday night’s coaching chaos, Central Hardin’s volleyball team looked much more comfortable than in its season-opening match.

    The Lady Bruins stayed loose. They attacked the net. And they even had new coach Jeff Crady dancing with them a little by the end of their 17th District match.
