    “When we eat a meal together, good things happen in your family and those around you,” he told the guests.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Bardstown clinches top seed in VB district tourney

    The top seed in the 19th District volleyball tournament has been settled following Bardstown’s straight-set win over Bethlehem Thursday.

    When Kenneth Thornsberry looked across the field at what South Oldham coach Jamie Reed has built, the Nelson County coach sees what he’d like to turn his program into.

    “That program is what other programs should strive to be,” he said. “They’ve been running on all cylinders.”

  • FOOTBALL: Waggener rolls over Bardstown

    On a night when Bardstown celebrated the induction of five former athletes into the school’s athletic Hall of Fame while mourning the death of a longtime Tiger supporter and member of the Hall of Fame Jim “Coach” Waldorf, coach David Clark’s young team could not come up with a win over Waggener.

    The Wildcats’ Jarius Brents — who has more than 30 scholarship offers, including Alabama — hit Marion Kimble on a 42-yard catch-and-run score on the final play of the first half to break away from Bardstown and knock off the Tigers 55-13.

    HODGENVILLE — Bethlehem, dealing with many injuries to starters, could never get anything going in a 40-0 loss to Class 3A No. 10 LaRue County on Friday night.

  • FOOTBALL: Generals stand tall in road win

    NEW CASTLE — Eschewing the old sports adage that “you go for the tie at home and go for the win on the road,” Henry County coach Matt Wright called for a two-point conversion after scoring to pull within 21-20 of visiting Thomas Nelson with under a minute left in the game.

    And on a night that Generals coach Kyle Boblitt says his team grew up, Thomas Nelson’s goal-line defense made its biggest stand of the night, stopping Tyler Raisor on the 1-foot line and preserving an important district win for Thomas Nelson (2-5, 1-1 dist.).
