  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Lady Panthers...

    Elizabethtown volleyball coach Tim Hinkle was relaxed throughout the Lady Panthers’ senior night.

    Even with his daughter, Rebecca, competing in her second to last home match, he stayed composed.

  • BOYS' PREP GOLF: Area...

    Kyle Jury doesn’t consider himself much of a morning person, but the Elizabethtown freshman is going to try to impersonate one today as he is one of the first three players to tee off in the 106-competitor Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA Boys’ State Golf Championship.

    Jury is in an 8 a.m. threesome with East Jessamine senior Nick McCarthy and Adair County senior Van Giles for the first round of State, which is being contested for the seventh consecutive year at the 6,700-yard, par-72 Bowling Green Country Club.

  • PREP ROUNDUP: Bulldogs fall to...

    Louisville St. Xavier showed the John Hardin Bulldogs exactly why it’s the No. 1 team in the state Monday night.

    After being held in check in the first half, the visiting Tigers scored three in the second to pull away for a 4-0 win.





    ELIZABETHTOWN — Results from Saturday’s meet at Freeman Lake Park:


    1. John Hardin (23)

      1. Katie Lever                               21:13.13

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: No. 1...

    From the time Rob Zoeller arrived in town to start rebuilding the Elizabethtown High School girls’ soccer program, it took the Lady Panthers the better part of 11 seasons to earn the No. 1 ranking in the weekly coaches’ top 25 poll for the first time.

    Elizabethtown (16-2) has spent the past two polls at the top spot and thanks to a suddenly shortened schedule, the Lady Panthers should still be No. 1 when they finally play again.

  • PREP CROSS COUNTRY: Lever wins...

    The News-Enterprise

    John Hardin senior Katie Lever continued her solid start with a win in Saturday’s John Hardin Bulldog Invitational.

    Lever won the 38-runner girls’ race in 21 minutes, 13.13 seconds Saturday morning at Freeman Lake Park in Elizabethtown.

    Eighth-grader Lindsay Atkins finished third (23:15.51), eighth-grader Sarah Swartz was sixth (23:30.69) and sophomore Molly Haebig took ninth (24:13.78) to lead the host Lady Bulldogs to the three-squad team title with 23 points.

  • PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Bruins get...

    In a rematch from last year’s boys’ soccer tournament semifinal, Central Hardin kicked away its frustrations and earned a little retribution.

    Senior Noah Wiersema and sophomore Jordan Mabe each scored goals to lead the Bruins to a 2-0 win Saturday afternoon at No. 20 Daviess County.

    Wiersema scored off an assist from senior Bubba Sankey in the first half, while Mabe scored unassisted in the second.

    Senior keeper Kyle Weiner made eight saves as Central Hardin (10-6) outshot Daviess County, 20-10.


    Central Hardin’s volleyball team finally had its 16-match winning streak snapped.

    The Lady Bruins suffered their first loss in more than a month, finishing 3-2 in the Jefferson County Invitational at the Ohio Valley Volleyball Center this weekend.


    Bardstown’s physical play punished Fort Knox’s football team.

    The visiting Tigers ground up the Eagles as they amassed 512 total yards – including 358 on the ground – in a 49-12 win Friday night at McAdams Field.

    Bardstown senior quarterback Jordan Brewer did most of the damage, rolling through the Eagles’ defense for 133 yards and two scores on 14 carries. Both of those scores came during the second quarter to give the undefeated Tigers (6-0) a 20-0 halftime lead.


    The John Hardin Bulldogs remained perfect in more than one way Friday night.

    The second-ranked Bulldogs thumped the 11th-ranked Central Hardin Bruins, 42-0 in a game delayed by a lighting issue at Bulldog Stadium to remain undefeated this season.

    The Bulldogs (6-0) also improved to 9-0 all-time versus Central Hardin. They’ve outscored the Bruins, 375-102 in the series and they’ve won every game by 15 or more points.
