  • PREP FOOTBALL: Knox looks to...

    The last time the Bardstown Tigers played at McAdams Field, Fort Knox snapped a 40-game losing skid with a shocking 27-17 victory.

    Two seasons later, the host Eagles are again in search of a win – only this time, the losing streak isn’t quite as long.

    Fort Knox enters tonight’s game with the Tigers having lost four straight since a season-opening win over Elizabethtown. If ever there was a time for a pick-me-up victory, this would be it.

  • PREP CROSS COUNTRY: Bulldog...

    The ongoing work at Freeman Lake Park has forced John Hardin girls’ cross country coach David Swartz to change things for Saturday morning’s 11th annual Bulldog Invitational.

    The meet will be held on the park’s south side instead of the north side – which was where Swartz had planned to run.

    The girls’ race is at 10 and the boys are set for 11.

  • WOMEN'S GOLF: Games heading...

    Andy Games told his wife, Beverly Games, matter of factly, that she’d be stupid if she didn’t accept an invitation to play next week in one of the USGA’s most prestigious events. One of her best golfing buddies, Kim Hartlage, told Games it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    Still Games, more mom than golfer at this point of her career, wavered before accepting a bid to play for Team Kentucky in the 10th USGA Women’s State Team Championship, which will be held Tuesday through Thursday at The Landings Club in Savannah, Ga.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bulldogs set to...

    If there’s one coach who knows what the John Hardin Bulldogs like to do offensively, it’s Central Hardin defensive coordinator Jesse Simpson.

    Simpson played for John Hardin coach Mark Brown when he was at Nelson County and was an assistant coach for Brown for a year at John Hardin. Simpson was the defensive coordinator at Nelson County the last few years, so he has experience trying to shut down the Bulldogs.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central knocks...

    What looked like such a promising senior night for Meade County’s volleyball team turned into a mental meltdown.

  • MEN'S SOFTBALL: Local team...

    Four years ago, Garrien Martin and Richard Price were atop the softball world. Now they have an opportunity to get back there.

    In 2007, Martin and Price, along with local players Demond Thomas, Fred Ditto and Chad Riggs, were part of the Bertie’s/B&C/Hub City Glass/Miken team, which won the Men’s Class B Slow Pitch title over C-Town/American Funding/Red Rock/Easton in a best-of-five series in Oklahoma City.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Central faces...

    The Central Hardin Bruins know the monumental task at hand Friday night when they travel to rival John Hardin. The Bulldogs are 5-0 and ranked second in Class 5-A. John Hardin hasn’t lost at home in the regular season since 2004, a streak of 30 consecutive games.

    And to compound matters, the Bruins have never beaten John Hardin in eight meetings. In fact, they’ve never played within two touchdowns of the Bulldogs. John Hardin has outscored Central Hardin, 333-102.

  • PREP ROUNDUP: No. 1...

    Junior Abigail Patterson and freshman Dani Wilson each scored to give the top-ranked Elizabethtown Lady Panthers a 2-1 win over No. 6 Louisville Sacred Heart on Wednesday.

    Patterson scored midway through the first half on an assist from senior Taylor Perkins, while Wilson scored unassisted midway through the second half.

    Senior keeper Audrey Duke made four saves for homestanding Elizabethtown (16-2), which closed the regular season on a seven-game winning streak.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Hare,...

    Offensively, Anne Hare got off to a sluggish start this season for John Hardin. But as the temperatures have dropped, the sophomore has warmed up.

    Hare continued her offensive onslaught Wednesday, scoring two goals and assisting on another as the Lady Bulldogs wrapped up the 10th District portion of their schedule with a 3-0 win against the host North Hardin Lady Trojans.

    “I don’t really know how to explain it,” Hare said. “I finished two. I wanted more, but that’s all right.”
