  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Lady Waves...

    The visiting Bardstown Bethlehem Banshees scored two goals in each half as they knocked off 5th Region rival Meade County, 4-0 on Wednesday.

    Bethlehem outshot the Lady Waves (0-3), 23-9.

    Sophomore keeper Jessica Duncan made 14 saves.

    UP NEXT: Meade County hosts Taylor County at 6 p.m. today.

    marion county 1, larue county 0. Junior keeper Kasey Wells made seven saves, but the visiting Lady Hawks (1-3-1) still lost for the third time in four games.

    LaRue County finished with 18 total shots.

  • PREP SPORTS: KHSAA changes...

    The girls and boys of summer are becoming the children of winter.

    Earlier this month, KHSAA commissioner Julian Tackett sent an email to principals, athletic directors and superintendents of the nearly 230 KHSAA member schools informing the recipients that the KHSAA was moving the start date for baseball, softball and tennis regular-season contests to Wednesday, March 7.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown...

    Shortly after the Fort Knox Eagles’ 41-21 dismantling of Elizabethtown was complete Friday night, Panthers assistant coach Jose Rivera got a text from NFL player Brandon Deaderick.

    Some of the text was not suitable for print, but the point of the message from the former Panther star was clear: The last time Deaderick lost to Fort Knox, the Panthers bounced back and advanced to the 2003 Class 2-A state final.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue County...

    Going into last week’s season opener, outgoing LaRue County football coach Rodney Armes was concerned with how his Hawks would handle the veteran North Bullitt Eagles, who outweighed the Hawks at several positions and had a far deeper roster.

    Armes’ answer was what he expected – not very well.

    Even though they had three turnovers, the Hawks managed to stay within striking distance before the Eagles pulled away with a pair of scores in the final 10 minutes.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Norton...

    As a point guard, Lauren Norton’s not expected to grab a lot of boards on the hardwood.

    Put her on the soccer pitch and the Central Hardin senior’s rebounding proficiency goes way up.

    The reigning Area Offensive Player of the Year scored two of her season-high four goals off rebounds, while two of her teammates scored off deflections as well as the eighth-ranked Lady Bruins cruised by the host John Hardin Lady Bulldogs, 7-0 on Wednesday night in a rematch of last year’s 10th District Tournament final.


    Elizabethtown High School girls’ soccer coach Jerry Crabtree still can’t understand how Lexy Hazle plays in the back row for her club team.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Knox travels to...

    Shawn Thompson is a superstitious man, and one who must find a routine and stick with it.

    Prior to last Friday’s game against the Elizabethtown Panthers, the first-year Fort Knox coach drove to Elizabethtown to pick up some equipment for a camera and stopped to eat at Colton’s Steak House in Radcliff on the way back.

    Following Fort Knox’s eye-opening 41-21 win at McAdams Field, Thompson said he’s going to keep his Friday routine going as long as the Eagles keep winning.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: North hopes to...

    Kris Cornett can’t wait to plow someone into the ground.

    While five other area high school football teams played, North Hardin had the opening week off.

    The Trojans’ senior lineman acknowledged the last two weeks of practices and scrimmages have helped his unit clean up its play. But he’s ready and excited to kick off the season for real and to show everyone what their redesigned offense is about.
