  • PREP FOOTBALL: Shipley leads...

    SHELBYVILLE — Friday was a banner night for Shelby County senior Zach Shipley in more ways than one.

    The quarterback ran for 52 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries and was 4-of-11 passing for 66 yards and another score as Shelby County pulled away for a 28-0 over the visiting LaRue County Hawks, giving the Rockets their first season-opening win at Robert Doyle Stadium in 2007.

    It was also a bit of redemption for the Rockets (1-0), who suffered a 27-24 road loss to the Hawks in 2011 and a 19-7 loss in Hodgenville in 2010.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Central Hardin...

    The Grayson County Cougars were like a snowball rolling downhill. Once the Cougars got started, the Central Hardin Bruins had no way of stopping them.

    The Cougars used their ground attack to turn a seven-point deficit into a 14-point lead on their way to a 21-14 victory over the homestanding Bruins in the first game of the Swope Nissan/First Citizens Bank Bowl.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Louisville...

    All the momentum the Elizabethtown Panthers gained by winning their season opener last week seemed to slip away Friday night.

    After winning for the first time since the 2010 season, the Panthers took a step back as they fell behind early and never recovered.

    “I think we were overconfident,” Elizabethtown senior Josh Williams said. “We didn’t come out like we should have. We’re better than what we showed. This is a big letdown, but we just have to get better for next week.”

  • PREP GOLF: Bulldog Classic...

    When John Hardin coach David Allan started the Bulldog Classic, he did so because there weren’t any tournaments close to home for the weekend. A year later, Allan’s vision has grown into one big tournament.

    After attracting 17 teams last year, this year’s Bulldog Classic has swelled to 24 teams and it was even larger before a few teams dropped out. The tournament will start at 7:30 a.m. Saturday at Lindsey Golf Course on Fort Knox.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Injuries mount...

    One game into the season, the Fort Knox Eagles are a pretty banged-up bunch.

    Already short on numbers, the injury bug has bitten the Eagles hard this week heading into their game tonight against visiting Hart County at McAdams Field.

    Seniors Aaron Stark and Brandon Gulick, junior Adam Kiphuth and sophomore Ishmael Price all suffered injuries and were limited this week in practice.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: North anxious to...

    Saturday night can’t get here soon enough for the North Hardin Trojans. After a month of beating up on each other and two scrimmages, the Trojans are anxious for the season to get started.

    North Hardin is the last area team to start the season as the Trojans play the Greenwood Gators at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the first game of the Joe Jaggers Bowl. The Meade County Green Wave take on South Oldham in the nightcap.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: North boys...

    Host Louisville Eastern scored on a penalty kick in the first half and added an insurance goal late in the second to fend off the North Hardin Trojans, 2-0 on Thursday.

    It was the third straight game against a top-25 opponent for No. 25 North Hardin (2-2). Eastern (2-0-1) is ranked No. 22.

    “We outplayed them in the second half,” said veteran North Hardin coach Jim Stone. “We were down 1-0 5 minutes into the game, but they didn’t score again until about 7 minutes left. In between that time, we played very well.”

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL ROUNDUP: LaRue...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks breezed to their sixth win of the season Thursday, a three-set victory over 5th Region rival Fort Knox.

    Host LaRue County finished with three more aces than the Lady Eagles had points as it rolled to a 25-4, 25-5, 25-12.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade looks to...

    Just three years ago, South Oldham went 0-10, got shut out twice and was limited to seven points or less four other times.

    That was before Jamie Reed arrived.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central Hardin...

    Before the season started, Central Hardin senior Alneisha Butler was worried about losing her starting spot as a middle hitter.
