    Special To The Standard

    Nelson County, led by a two-hit shutout performance by pitcher Collin Runner, advances to the 19th District semifinals after topping Thomas Nelson 6-0.

    Runner suffered from some control issues through the game, walking five batters, but his 12 strikeouts allowed him to get out of any jams he worked himself into.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: NC, Bethlehem hire coaches

    At one point, three of the four head boys’ basketball coaching positions at local schools were open. That number is down to one now after Nelson County and Bethlehem filled their vacant jobs recently.

    After eight years as Bethlehem girls’ coach, Chris Taylor is sliding over to head up the boys’ program following Artie Braden’s recent resignation. At Nelson County, where longtime local coach William “Bev” Hart recently retired, a former Cardinal legend in Zach Allender has been promoted from assistant to head coach.

  • CLASS 2A STATE TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS: Downs captures state pole vault title

    LEXINGTON — Bardstown produced five consecutive boys’ state pole vault champions from 2006 to 2010, establishing the school as a power in the event thanks to Michael Seaman, Matt Case and J.P. Willett.

    The Tigers have picked up several medals in the event since then, but no new champions emerged until Friday, when senior Lucas Downs joined the ranks of Bardstown greats by clearing 14-06 to finish his career with a Class 2A state title at the University of Kentucky’s track complex.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: NC wins to force 3-way tie atop baseball district

    Nelson County played the role of spoiler on its home field Monday night, rallying from 5-0 and 7-1 down to beat Bardstown 8-7 and denying the Tigers a chance to clinch the top seed outright for the 19th District baseball tournament.

    As a result, the Cardinals’ win threw Bardstown, Bethlehem and Washington County into a three-way tie for the top spot, with all three finishing their district seasons at 8-4.
