  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Banshees wallop Generals

    Just like Tuesday against Bardstown, Bethlehem got off to a slow start at home in its regular-season district finale Friday against Thomas Nelson, falling behind 9-4 after one quarter.

    The next three quarters, however, were all Banshees as they outscored the Generals 62-35 the rest of the way in recording a 66-44 win to lock up the No. 3 seed in the 19th District tournament, which starts in two weeks.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Tigers best NC to stay on top

    Bardstown did just enough down the stretch Friday to hold off a Nelson County comeback effort and preserve its spot atop the 19th District standings with a 78-68 road win.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Cards hold off Tigers’ stunning comeback

    Bardstown nearly authored one of the most stunning comebacks in local high school basketball history Friday, rallying from 31 points down in the first half at Nelson County to cut the deficit to one possession in the final seconds.

    The Cardinals did just enough to hold off the Tigers at the end, however, as a free throw by Zaria Burton and two more charity tosses by Amelia Hodges in the final minute gave Nelson County the cushion it needed to record a 67-64 win and clinch the No. 1 seed in the district tournament.

  • BOWLING: Boys teams knocked out early at regions

    Turnabout is surely fair play.

    Just one day after the Nelson County girls ousted Taylor County en route to a runner-up finish in the bowling regionals in Elizabethtown, the Taylor County boys returned the favor on Saturday.

    They beat Nelson County 4-1 in the quarterfinals and went on to finish second to Russell County. Nelson County was seeded sixth in the 11-team field and defeated Green County in its opening-round match. It was the Dragons’ girls who beat the Cardinals in the girls’ finals on Friday.
