  • COMMUNITY SPORTS: Competitive fires are stoked in local runner
    As a boy growing up in New Haven, Don Kirkpatrick considered himself too small as a high school freshman and sophomore at 5’2, 100 pounds, to consider competitive athletics. “I was your typical runt in high school,” said Kirkpatrick, who now lives in Bardstown. He eventually caught a growth spurt, filling out as a self-described “late bloomer,” to 5’10 1/2 and 170 pounds by the time he was a freshman in college.

  • RIVER RAT: Welcome to Ky. Standard Sports
    Those of you who are regular readers of the Standard’s sports section have a pretty good idea of what you can find in these pages on a regular basis. But for those of you who may be seeing our paper for the first time, allow me to give you a bit of a primer on what you’ll generally find here in this section. High school sports coverage tends to be the bread-and-butter of most small-town newspapers, and this paper is no exception to that rule. For 10 months out of the year, these pages are filled with the exploits of our local adolescent athletes.

See Sports Notes at right for details. Tuesday night is player/fan appreciation night at the park, and admission is free.
