  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: 2010 All-Area...

    On a team loaded with talent, one player stood out above the rest: Maddie Lewis.

    While her statistics may not have been as gaudy as some of her teammates, what made Lewis stick out most in the minds of the area’s seven head coaches was her work ethic.

    “I always work hard, no matter what,” said Central Hardin’s senior libero. “That was my goal, to never give up on myself or the team.”

  • BOYS' PREP GOLF: 2010 All-...

    North Hardin junior Anthony Irwin blossomed this season into the player many thought he could be.

    Irwin, who didn’t play last season, won the 5th Region Tournament in September with a 2-under-par 71 at Lincoln Trail Country Club. It was a memorable day for Irwin, who had a hole-in-one on the par-3, 188-yard second hole to spark his round.

    Irwin’s accomplishments earned him Area Player of the Year honors in the annual News-Enterprise/Coaches All-Area Boys’ Golf Team. It was something which caught him off guard.

  • GIRLS' PREP GOLF: 2010 All-...

    The Area Player of the Year award might need to be changed to Lydia Gumm Player of the Year.

    Gumm, the North Hardin sophomore, was named the Player of the Year for a fifth consecutive year in the annual News-Enterprise/Coaches All-Area Girls’ Golf Team. Since The News-Enterprise began doing postseason awards for all sports, no one has won the top honor five times.

    “It’s a huge honor,” Gumm said. “It was a really fun year. It was a memorable year.”


    ELIZABETHTOWN — Top-eight results for Central Hardin (CH), Elizabethtown (ET), Fort Knox (FK), John Hardin (JH) and North Hardin (NH) from Saturday’s six-school Elizabethtown Invitational at T.K. Stone Middle School:

    Girls’ 200-Yard Medley Relay


    The homestanding North Hardin Christian Lady Falcons were held to 11 points in the first half en route to a 51-23 loss to Lexington Blue Grass Baptist on Friday night.

    The Lady Falcons (0-1) fell behind 29-11 at the half.

    Shamyiah McCamish paced North Hardin Christian with nine points and five rebounds, while Haley Daniels chipped in with five points and two assists.

    Shontice Taylor added four points.



    The John Hardin Bulldogs are lucky they’re waking up this morning with a film session to attend later today. Maybe a better word is fortunate.

    Lucky makes it sound like their 28-24 come-from-behind victory over the Anderson County Bearcats in the Class 5-A, Region 2 championship Friday night at Warford Stadium was a fluke, which it certainly wasn’t.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: John Hardin...

    LAWRENCEBURG — John Hardin’s march to the Class 5-A state semifinals this season will be remembered for “The Drive,” much like the Denver Broncos win over the Cleveland Browns in the AFC championship game in 1987.

    The Bulldogs found themselves trailing – that’s right, trailing – in the fourth quarter for the first time this season with 62 yards standing between them and a date in the state semifinals.

    “I have to admit I got scared,” John Hardin senior cornerback Anthony Wright said.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Two prolific...

    The scoreboard operator at Anderson County’s Warford Stadium might be the busiest man tonight when the Bearcats host the John Hardin Bulldogs.

    John Hardin and Anderson County have two of the most prolific offenses in Class 5-A. The Bulldogs average a staggering 43.8 points a game, a state best in their class, while Anderson County is three spots behind at 38.2 a game.

  • PREP SPORTS: Elizabethtown...

    Elizabethtown High School’s basketball and swimming facilities appear the places to be Saturday.

    The Lady Panthers’ annual Mark Harris Construction/Physical Therapy Associates Preseason HoopFest begins at 10 a.m. at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium, while the Elizabethtown Invitational swim meet starts at 2:30 p.m. at T.K. Stone Middle School.


    The T.K. Stone Lady Panthers weren’t about to let Stuart Pepper’s Morgan Turner beat them again, not after Turner scored 30 points to lead the Lady Waves to a double-overtime victory the last time the teams met.

    Turner had no such success Thursday night.

    The Lady Panthers, utilizing a zone defense, held Turner to one point as they cruised to a 43-23 win in the championship of the Middle School Athletic Conference Eighth-Grade Girls’ Basketball Tournament at Central Hardin High School’s Bruin Gym.
