  • 2016 KENTUCKY STANDARD SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Senior-heavy Generals look to turn the corner

    Thomas Nelson is off to a rocky start in the early stages of the season as the bulk of the lineup undergoes major position changes, but the Generals think their group of seven seniors can see them through toward turning the corner.

    “We’re seven seniors strong, so that’s a lot of experience we have and a lot of mental awareness we can see on the field,” senior Taryn Roby said. “So that’s really where that comes into play, and just knowing the game is a really big part of it.”

  • 2016 KENTUCKY STANDARD SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Tigers seeking breakout year

    Filled with a cast of five seniors and seven juniors, including six returning starters, the Bardstown Tigers are gearing for what they hope is an extended season with a deep run in tournament play.

    “We have come a long way,” Tigers coach Shawn Boggs said. “Since taking over this program, we have really improved in terms of our fundamentals and team unity.”

    Boggs, who starts her third season, said her team’s overall development has brought in a lot of nice players and this could be a special year.

  • 2016 KENTUCKY STANDARD SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Banshees gunning for fifth straight title

    When you’ve won four consecutive district softball titles, your opponents tend to be gunning for you with added incentive.

    That’s why Bethlehem senior Megan Myers says it seems like she had a bull’s-eye on her back instead of a number.

    “Since my sophomore season, we haven’t lost a game in the district,” she said. “We have a big red X on our back, not just from every team in our district but in the region.”

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Eagles win in extras

    Bethlehem is off to a 2-0 start after back-to-back wins to start the season.

    On Tuesday, the Eagles won a dramatic home opener, 7-6 over Marion County in eight innings.

    The Knights rallied for three in the top of the seventh to force extras, but the host Eagles played small-ball for the win in the eighth with Curtis Carrico singling to lead off the inning, making his way around to third and later scoring on Matthew Hagan’s single.

  • 2016 KENTUCKY STANDARD BASEBALL PREVIEW: Downs Generals’ 3rd coach in past 3 years

    Sometimes adjusting to a new coach takes time. But, for Thomas Nelson senior Trey Spalding, a three-year starter, so far it’s been an easy transition.

    “Yes, it can be difficult when you have a coaching change,” he said. “But, Coach Downs knows the game and I trust him.”

  • 2016 KENTUCKY STANDARD BASEBALL PREVIEW: Tigers have mix of youth, vets, speed

    With nearly all of the middle infield returning for head coach Glenn Koger, the Bardstown Tigers figure to be set for what could be their best season ever.

    “We have a good-looking ballclub this year,” Koger said. “We have a lot of returning starters and our pitching rotation looks to be pretty strong.”

    The Tigers seem to offer a well-rounded lineup card, and should be dangerous in the running game yet again.

  • 2016 KENTUCKY STANDARD BASEBALL PREVIEW: Eagles starting over from scratch yet again

    As he prepared his baseball team for the 2015 season, Bethlehem coach Roger Robinson had a tough task.

    He had to replace his entire starting lineup from the 2014 squad that won the 19th District and was defeated 1-0 by Elizabethtown in the regional championship game.

    Even with an inexperienced team, the Eagles did quite well last year, winning 24 games and advancing to the regional tournament after falling to Washington County in the district finals.
