  • STATE BOWLING CHAMPIONSHIPS: TNHS boys fall in first round

    Thomas Nelson’s first-ever trip to the boys’ state bowling tournament was short-lived, but it proved a nice capper to a season that saw the second-year program take a big leap forward.

    “The boys worked really hard to get to state,” coach Crystal Hellard said. “We were put out in the first round but I am so proud of these boys. They proved that they could work hard and get to state. The seniors have worked for three years to get here. No matter how they finished in state in was a great accomplishment to get there.”

  • REGION 3 SWIM MEET: NC boys, girls enjoy relay success

    Nelson County had a handful of entrants qualify into Saturday’s championship heats of the Region 3 swimming championships at Russell County, but it was a tougher time of it for Bethlehem, which was shut out of the finals.

    Complete results from Friday’s preliminary heats, including Nelson County and Thomas Nelson times, were unavailable as of press time for this edition.

    Bethlehem coach Fran Spaulding found encouraging results as her squad showed reduced times up and down the lineup.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Panthers stun Tigers with late rally

    An old problem crept up at the wrong time Friday for the Bardstown Tigers.

    After leading by eight early in the fourth quarter, Bardstown was 13-of-22 from the foul line and the Panthers rallied to pull out a 77-76 victory in a matchup of 5th Region title contenders.

    Keanu Young scored nine of his game-high 21 points during a critical fourth-quarter run Tuesday, helping Bardstown turn back Bethlehem, 52-39.

    The Tigers (17-5) had led by double digits in the first half, but the Eagles (8-12) scratched their way back into it in the third quarter. Bethlehem got a three by Derek Goode and free throws from Zack Coniff and Jude Hutchins to pull within 34-32 with 5:45 left to play.

  • REGION 3 WRESTLING MEET: NC duo hopes to stay undefeated

    With its top two wrestlers coming into the postseason undefeated, Nelson County’s program could be poised for its best showing in school history.

    But it won’t be easy.

    “I just hope to win — I don’t care how it looks,” said Zac Lawson, who is defending region champ in the heavyweight division and No. 2 in the state. “It’s still as tough as always” to advance out of Region 3.

  • SWIMMING: Local teams gearing up for Friday's region meet

    The well-chronicled havoc wreaked by the weather upon the high school sports schedule has also trickled down in a big way to some of the minor sports.

    Whereas the area basketball teams have still been able to practice in the warm confines of the local gymnasiums, Mother Nature’s forces have not made life so easy for the swim teams at Bethlehem, Nelson County and Thomas Nelson. Those teams have missed several days, including a week at a time, by not being able to make the trip to Lebanon for practice at the Lebanon Aquatic Center.

  • HOOPS ROUNDUP: Tiger boys finish strong

    Bardstown won for the sixth time in its last seven games Monday, coming from behind in the fourth quarter to score a 76-69 decision over visiting Holy Cross.

    The Tigers (16-5) faced down a four-point deficit going into the fourth, but outscored the Cougars 28-17 in the fourth to pull away. Bardstown rode red-hot shooting in the game, going 27-for-46 from the field (64 percent).
