  • FOOTBALL: Bethlehem opens district play at Caverna

    For the first time this season, all four area teams will be in district action, as Bethlehem makes its Class 1A District 2 debut this week on the road at Caverna.

    The Eagles (3-3) have had a rough go of it in recent weeks with numerous injuries to key players such as seniors Matthew Hagan, the quarterback, and Hunter Downs, Bethlehem’s top running back. Also complicating matters is the absence of head coach Ron Koontz, who has been sidelined with medical issues.

  • COMMUNITY SPORTS: Racing for glory

    Damon Sims lives a nomadic lifestyle on the weekends, and could be forgiven if he and his family’s favorite song is Willie Nelson’s “On The Road Again.”

    It’s not a song choice — or a lifestyle — typical of most 9-year-olds. But Damon is chasing after something big, and on the road again is the only way to get it.

    A New Haven native who is a fifth-grader at St. Joe, the third-generation racer was born with it in his blood, like his father, Kurt, and his grandfather before them.

  • On the record with: Bardstown junior Amber Mason

    Bardstown junior Amber Mason is this week’s nominee for the Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13/44 Auto Mart Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Mason carries a 4.0 GPA and is the leader of the Bardstown volleyball squad, and also remains active around the BHS campus with FBLA and youth council, and she’s looking at coming out for the Tiger basketball team after a few years away from the sport.

    Kentucky Standard sports editor Peter W. Zubaty caught up with Amber for a few questions to better get to know her.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Banshees clinch top seed in VB district

    Bethlehem got back the advantage it lost in the district earlier this season in a three-set loss at Bardstown, as the Banshees prevailed over the Tigers in a tight, tight match that could make for an entertaining 19th District championship.

    Both teams traded set wins Thursday, with Bethlehem winning the first and third, and Bardstown rallying in the second and fourth to even it up each time. The Banshees got the home-floor win, however, 15-12 in the second set, to clinch the top seed in the 19th District tournament.

  • FOOTBALL ROUNDUP: Generals stop Wildcats on late two-pointer to claim district win

    It seems Thomas Nelson lives for the big play — especially near the game’s end.

    The Generals managed to stop Henry County’s two-point conversion attempt with just more than a minute to play, claiming a hard-fought home win on Friday, 14-13.

    “I am just so proud of these guys,” Thomas Nelson coach Kyle Boblitt said. “It came down to the wire and our guys did their job. We made a great play and were able to get the win.”

  • FOOTBALL: Tigers rout Waggener to stay unblemished

    ST. MATTHEWS — Bardstown took a huge step toward securing a home playoff game Friday, going on the road to Waggener and building a big early lead on the way to a 40-17 win in a matchup of top-10 Class 3A teams.

    The Tigers moved to 6-0 on the season, the first time Bardstown has been undefeated this late in the season since 2007, and improved to 2-0 in Class 3A District 3 games in the process.

    “It’s a good feeling to have this,” senior TreJan Walls said. “We’re going to clinch a (home) playoff spot.”
