  • Ackley signs with Campbellsville
  • STRAIGHT ARROW: I’m not a big fan of the heat

    As a welder, when the temperatures get above 80 degrees, I am usually pretty miserable.

    When I am welding, I put a long sleeve shirt on over my T-shirt, leather welding gloves and welding helmet. I have to cut any fans off so it doesn’t blow the gas away from the welding nozzle, and if it’s windy I sometimes have to close the big overhead door for the same reason. Lastly, I wear glasses, and after a few minutes of welding in the heat I am sweating so badly that my glasses have so much sweat on them I feel like I am looking through an aquarium.

  • STRAIGHT ARROW: A blind for the little ones

    Last Saturday, Eric, a friend, Jonathan, and I met at 5:30 a.m. to go to Hart County to put a blind up for my granddaughters from which to hunt deer and turkey.

    This project actually started about three years ago, when I built three seven-foot tall 6’x6’ steel support frames for box blinds to be built upon. We had not completed the project, because Hannah had been hunting from a portable blind, but after seeing her determination and success last year, we knew it was time to give her more options, especially for when the weather turns cold and wet.

  • SPORTS BRIEFS 6-24

    Ky. Junior Am at Maywood, MOKH

    Prospect’s Mason Lenhart captured this week’s Kentucky Junior Amateur Championships, firing an even-par 76-68—144 after a scorching round at Maywood on Wednesday. Lenhart’s total bested Louisville’s Drew Doyle (72-73—145) by one stroke. Five others were tied at 2-over-par 146.

    Justin Culver of Boston (75-81—156), a Thomas Nelson High School standout, was in a four-way tie at 41st place at 12-over-par. More than 100 boys competed in the tournament.

  • ARCHERY: 'Other sport" takes Myers World-wide

    For the majority of just-graduated seniors, the last varsity competition of their high school athletic careers ended a month ago.

    Megan Myers, however, could still be found practicing at Bethlehem’s gym during that time, taking shot after shot, keeping that eye sharp.

    She’s not making some late baskets to try and land a hoops scholarship, though — Myers’ college future is already decided. She’ll be suiting up for the Brescia University softball team as a freshman next season.

  • Rogers chooses to continue track at Lindsey Wilson

    Julian Rogers excelled at football and track and field while at Bardstown High. When it came time to graduate, he had to choose.

  • Banshees land two on softball All-State

    With 24 wins on the season, Bethlehem matched its school record for single-season victories. On Monday, two of the Banshees’ top players were recognized for their contributions to that effort by the Kentucky Softball Coaches’ Association.

    Senior first baseman Grason Gasser, who has signed with Georgia Tech, was voted first-team All-State for Class 1A-sized schools. While softball in Kentucky is organized as one class, for the purpose of the KSCA awards schools are broken up into three classes based on the KHSAA track and field alignment.

  • Livers, Dennison prove ‘Once a Tiger, always a Tiger’

    As the final seconds ticked off in Bardstown’s season-ending loss to Lexington Catholic in the football play-offs, senior Voshon Livers thought the horn also signaled the end of his football playing days.
    And he admits that he shed tears as he removed his jersey for what he thought would be the final time.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Versatile TNHS guard hoping to take off in college

    For the past four years, Lisa Jo Wygal has been a starter for the Thomas Nelson girls’ basketball squad, showing off her repertoire of skills that made it hard to find out what spot on the floor suited her best.

    At 5-10, she’s taller than a lot of high school post players, let alone point guard, where she found herself running the Generals’ offense more often than not.
