For the first time since 2003, the girls’ and boys’ have repeat champions.
Marion County won its fourth title and eighth overall with an 82-60 triumph over LaRue County on Tuesday night at Green County. Three days earlier, John Hardin bested North Hardin 64-51 for its second crown and third overall at Hart County.
John Hardin’s toughest foe was probably first-round opponent Bardstown. After a 68-64 squeaker over the Tigers, the Bulldogs bested LaRue County 74-59 in the semi-finals before conquering the rival Trojans for the title.
