But just like Meade County coach Jerry Garris predicted would happen, the Hornets slowed the tempo down in the second quarter and Meade County’s momentum evaporated.

  • GIRLS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    Central Hardin and North Hardin have had two completely different battles this season

  • BOYS' 17TH DISTRICT...
