  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    Throughout the first half, North Hardin coach Chris Corder’s face turned as red as the Nelson County Lady Cardinals’ uniform stripes.

    With his team down one at halftime, he could’ve chewed out players.

    He could’ve displayed his frustrations after the Lady Trojans committed more turnovers than they had points or even used an emotional plea.

    Instead, he reminded his team over and over to go back and do what it does best.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers had their way with the Washington County Commanderettes during the regular season, but Coach Tim Mudd has cautioned his team it won’t be as easy this time around.

    Elizabethtown (24-5) plays Washington County (12-15) at 6 tonight in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament quarterfinals at Central Hardin High School. The Lady Panthers topped Washington County, 73-32 on Jan. 26. Mudd said his team must be in the right frame of mind in order to keep its season alive.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    There is no mathematical formula to figuring out the favorite for the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament, but if there was, it sure would help.

    Ask the coaches involved in the tournament and you might get eight different answers. That explains how wide open the tournament is this season, which is a rarity. Most years coaches are able to pinpoint the favorite. Or at least, the co-favorites.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION...

    Coach Chris Corder hopes the North Hardin Lady Trojans can keep their relentless pressure defense going all game.

    They have to control the tempo in the Girls’ 5th Region Tournament’s opening game.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL...

    There will be a sense a familiarity when the Boys’ 5th Region Tournament starts this week.

    Never is that more evident than the first round matchup between the John Hardin Bulldogs and the Bardstown Bethlehem Eagles. Current John Hardin coach Mark Wells was an assistant for Artie Braden, who started the Bulldogs’ program and led them to their only region title in 2006.

  • 3RD REGION TOURNAMENTS: Green...

    Jerry Garris was happy to see his Meade County Green Wave’s quarterfinal opponent for the Boys’ 3rd Region Basketball Tournament: Butler County.

    The Bears (11-19) and the Owensboro Apollo Eagles (14-14) are the only two teams with non-winning records in the eight-team field at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

    That’s the good news. The bad news: If the Green Wave advance, they could meet the ninth-ranked Ohio County Eagles in Friday’s semifinals.

  • PREP SWIMMING: Hardesty, Coakley...

    LOUISVILLE Two weekends ago, John Hardin senior Dalton Hardesty outraced one of his top rivals to take the Region 3 Swimming Championships 100-yard butterfly crown.

    This time, Woodford County junior Newell Hicks edged him out by one place for a top-five State spot.

  • PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Falcons...

    North Hardin Christian’s dynamic duo of Ruben Gosa and Carlos Jones combined for 51 points as the host Falcons beat the Hillview MICAH Lions, 63-58 in the KCAA 2nd Region Tournament championship Friday night.

  • BOYS' 17TH DISTRICT...

    Brandon Price redeemed himself.

    After what he deemed a disappointing performance in the Boys’ 17th District Basketball Tournament semifinals, the junior guard saved John Hardin with his ability to get to the foul line and hit his free throws in Saturday’s district championship.

    And he helped the Bulldogs finally finish a title game off.
