    Central Hardin baseball coach Todd Thompson has had plenty of time to think about what the Bruins accomplished last season when they won the KHSAA state tournament.

    “I’ve had time to reflect back on the year as a whole, and it was just a special year,” Thompson said. “It was a special group of boys.”

    The Bruins will be back together tonight for the first time since July. They won the championship in June and they returned to Whitaker Bank Ballpark in July for a special ceremony prior to a Lexington Legends game.

    The North Hardin boys’ basketball program has had some bad luck and just unimaginable situations over the last few years.

    This year, though, might be the worst compared to the others.

    In 2006, Chris Tharpe transferred to North Hardin only to be ruled ineligible by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. The following year, James and Jamarious Sykes moved to Georgia prior to the start of the season.


    The host Central Hardin Bruins held the Grayson County Cougars to eight points in the fourth quarter, turning a tie ballgame into a 63-52 win Tuesday night.

    Central Hardin (2-1) trailed 29-24 before outscoring the Cougars, 39-23 in the second half.

    Senior Andrew Kinney led the Bruins with 26 points, five rebounds and three steals, while senior Cameron Wright had a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

    Junior Troy Squires and senior Cody Crim each scored eight points.


    Sophomore Domeneque Taft scored 20 points and hit four 3-pointers to lift the visiting North Hardin Lady Trojans to an 89-41 win over 5th Region rival Bardstown Bethlehem on Tuesday.

    Taft also had seven assists and four steals, while junior Chanel Roberts posted a double-double with 20 points, 11 rebounds and three steals. Eighth-grader Tamiah Stanford chipped in with 14 points and four steals, and sophomore Tashara Jackson scored 14.


    John Hardin basketball coach Mark Wells can’t wait until the Bulldogs start to get healthy again.

    With six players still trying to run their way back into shape from football season, he acknowledged they are still putting together a plan.
