  • THE 70th BOURBON OPEN: Ladies make their mark at Bourbon Open
    For nearly the first 50 years of the Bourbon Open, it was a man’s world. With a full field on a yearly basis and the number of spots available restricted by the nine-hole golf course at My Old Kentucky Home, the female golfers were relegated to being behind the scenes, providing assistance with the scoring, helping with the social activities, and taking a lead role in the production of the Bourbon Open program.
  • THE 70th BOURBON OPEN: Reunion time at the Bourbon Open
    With so many players returning to compete in the Bourbon Open year after year, and with so little turnover in the field, mid-May in Bardstown is a time of renewal. Friends catch up with one another, telling stories and recapping the previous year. And for a St. Louis attorney, the Bourbon Open brings together members of his family from several different states. Richard Shinner is competing in 34th tournament this weekend, and he says that there are Shinners coming from everywhere.

  • COMMUNITY SPORTS: Clash of the Titans
    Moans and groans, the clanking of metal hitting the floor, and maybe a few choice words were not the sounds of torture, but the echoes of those in training for the past few weeks at Darkside Athletics as they prepared to hit the road to the Festivus Games last weekend at Crossfit the Tracks in Erlanger. Eight members of the weight lifting and conditioning class at Darkside Athletics registered to compete in the nationwide event on April 18.
  • TRACK/CROSS COUNTRY: Homeschooler Bradley signs with C’ville
    Usually, the recruiting process goes something like this: Coaches see an athlete at high school or summer league competition. If they like what they see, they offer the athlete a scholarship. It wasn’t quite that simple for Julianna Bradley. Bradley is home-schooled, and as a result, she didn’t have the organized structure to her athletic career that is available to her counterparts attending traditional high school.
  • HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS: Bardstown superfan calls all the games
    Sports fans find many ways to demonstrate their passion for their teams. Some, such as Chris Hawkins, are way more creative about it than others. “Very few people would probably know him as Chris Hawkins, even those who went to school with him,” said Gary Goode, one of Hawkins’ former teachers at Bardstown High School. “Everybody just knows him as ‘Cheez.’”
  • BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Brewer, Tigers creates ‘Miracle’ win against PRP
    It could be deemed the ‘Miracle on 400, North Fifth Street’, as Bardstowns’ Alexis Brewer, knocked down the final shot of the game as time expired on Monday. The extraordinary bucket gave the host Tigers a 47-44 victory over PRP. What appeared to be an eternity of anticipation—her shot clipped the front of the rim, and trickled off the back brace, then came forward, teetering on the lip of the iron, until it was seemingly willed through the basket, as the horn sounded.
