  • GIRLS’ BASKETBALL: Generals edged at home

    It was a tail of two halves Friday as host Thomas Nelson rallied from 14 down but stumbled late, falling 54-51 to Western Hills.

    The loss snapped the Generals’ (3-3) three game winning steak. Both teams struggled to find the basket early, but Western Hills (6-0), built an 18-12 margin by the end of the first quarter.

  • BOYS’ BASKETBALL: Tigers falter in KOB

    If nothing else, by the time Bardstown begins a four-game stretch of games against 19th District opponents on Jan. 6, there shouldn’t be anything the Tigers haven’t seen before.

    The current stretch of games they’re in will see Bardstown face no fewer than five ranked teams in a span of less than four weeks, and tournament play could raise that total even more.

  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Tiger girls get to finals

    After a rocky start to the season, Bardstown’s girls are turning the corner during holiday tournament time, winning games Thursday and Friday to advance to Saturday’s finals of the Lady Redhawk Classic at Seneca.

    The Tigers’ championship matchup with Clinton County (8-0) was too late for this edition of the Standard.

  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: TNHS wins 3rd straight; Tigers’ upset bid falls short

    Thomas Nelson won its third straight in girls’ basketball highlights from Monday, while Bardstown suffered a narrow loss to Top 20 Glasgow.

    The Generals (3-2) got a monster effort from junior Madison Fritz, who scored 28 to lead the way in a 56-50 win over Taylor County. Thomas Nelson had to come from behind to get the home victory, as Lisa Jo Wygal fueled a late comeback by scoring 10 of her 18 points in the fourth quarter, including a pair of three-pointers.

    The Generals are back at home Friday against Western Hills.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Eagles erupt in fourth quarter

    Bethlehem shook off a halftime deficit behind a red-hot Jude Hutchins, who exploded for 21 second-half points to lead the Eagles past Nelson County, 67-48.

    “The shots weren’t falling throughout the game, but you’ve got to keep the defensive intensity up,” said Hutchins, who came up with a career-high 34 points, including 11 in the fourth quarter as the Eagles (4-0, 2-0 dist.) pulled away. “If the shots aren’t falling, eventually they’ll start falling.”

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Nelson County snaps skid

    Nelson County broke out of a recent slump in a big way, taking control against Bethlehem in the first quarter on the way to a 54-29 win Friday.

    “It makes you feel really good to win a game after three losses,” Nelson County’s Brooklyn Greer said.
