  • On the record with: Bethlehem senior Kirsten Crepps

    Bethlehem senior Kirsten Crepps is this week’s nominee for The Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Kirsten is a longtime starter on the Banshees’ softball team and returned to basketball for her senior season this year after a few years away from the sport. In addition, she tried out cross country for the first time this year, and ended up being one of the top girl runners in the area, landing a scholarship to Lindsey Wilson.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: B’town rolls past NC; Eagles fall on road

    On Tuesday night, Bardstown saw its four-year winning streak over district rivals end.

    On Friday night, the Tigers got started on a new win streak, scoring the first eight points of the game and cruising to a 74-48 home decision over Nelson County.

    “That motivated us a lot,” senior Dsamuel Butler said of having the streak stopped. “Losing to a team in the district, you can’t do that.”

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Cards top Tigers to stay in charge

    The much-anticipated matchup of Nelson County and Bardstown, the two favorites for the 19th District title, started out like a barn-burner Friday.

    That only lasted for about nine minutes, however, before Nelson County used a 17-6 run to close out the first half on the way to a 61-51 win, the Cardinals’ 26th straight over district rivals.

  • KENTUCKY STANDARD 2017 SPORTS YEAR IN REVIEW: Top 10 for 2017

    Each year on the sports pages, a number of stories capture the fancy of local readers.

    At the end of each year, I take some time to reflect on just what it was we saw, and try my best to bring it all together in one list and bring context to it all.

  • PREP HOOPS ROUNDUP: Tigers’ streak ends at WC

    The Tigers had won 42 straight over district competition — a streak dating back four years — but that streak fell last Tuesday in Springfield, where Washington County scored a 55-49 victory.

    In addition, the Commanders’ win ended more than a decade of futility against the Tigers, a 32-game Bardstown win streak dating back to the 2005-06 season.

    The last Washington County win was March 4, 2005, in the 19th District championship when coach Bam Carney and his Commanders beat Gary Goode’s Tigers 60-57.

  • PREP HOOPS ROUNDUP: Bardstown boys edge Campbellsville for tourney title

    With a high-stakes first-round game in the All A Classic regional looming in just a couple of weeks, Campbellsville coach Tim Davis and Bardstown coach James “Boo” Brewer were intent on playing things close to the vest when their teams met Saturday night in the championship game of the Campbellsville Holiday Classic.

    They might not have given away any of their strategies, but both teams played with such grind and determination that it might be worth the drive to Fort Knox on Jan. 15 to see the rematch.

    When the Bethlehem swim team hit the water this year, the squad generally isn’t the biggest, but the squad won’t let that get in the way of them being the most competitive. Fran Spaulding is back as the head coach of the swim team, and she expects her kids to have another great season.

  • SWIMMING: Outlook good for NC, TNHS swimming squads

    Carmen O’Neill is all smiles when she talks about the upcoming season for her swimmers from Thomas Nelson and Nelson County.

    Not only has she returned several of her swimmers from Nelson County who qualified for the second day of last year’s regional competition, but she also has a record number of athletes on her team from Thomas Nelson.
