  • BASKETBALL: Weather cancels games

    Monday’s snowstorm that battered the region wreaked havoc upon the local high school basketball schedule, cancelling all games Monday and Tuesday.

    This is the final week of the high school regular season, with district tournaments set to begin Monday. As a result, cancelled games will likely not be rescheduled. One exception was Thomas Nelson’s home boys game against Mercer County, originally scheduled for Monday. That game has been moved to Friday at 6 p.m.

  • REGION 3 SWIM CHAMPIONSHIPS: Hutchins wins 2 region titles

    VERSAILLES — The first time is always special, as Nelson County junior Will Hutchins is finding out after capturing a pair of region titles to become the first local swimmer to achieve such heights.

    Hutchins got the job done at Saturday’s Region 3 swim meet, improving dramatically on his preliminary times to win the 100-yard breaststroke championship, and finish in a dead heat for first in the 50-yard freestyle.

  • REGION 2 WRESTLING CHAMPIONSHIPS: Ackley does it again

    BRANDENBURG — Nelson County’s Andrew Ackley followed the same script as last year, going undefeated in both regular seasons.

    Now, the junior has backed it up in the postseason, repeating as 152-pound region champion Saturday at Meade County in purely dominating fashion, needing just 47 seconds to pin North Hardin’s Raymond Williams (34-6) in the finals to remain undefeated in 27 bouts this season.

    “It’s amazing — I’m going for my third one next year!” Ackley said of repeating as region champion.
