Don't be surprised if North Hardin captures the boys' and girls' Fifth Region basketball championships in 2009.
Adair County was expected to repeat last year in the Fifth Region and Bardstown is the pre-season favorite this year. But not since North Hardin won three straight titles (2001-2003) has a school won back-to-back crowns.
North Hardin adds Greg Johnson, who did not play last season, to LaRod King and Roosevelt Emerson to get the slight edge over Bardstown and Adair County.
