  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Tiger girls enjoying a resurgence

    Bardstown has shown itself to be awfully stingy on defense this season, allowing just a paltry 43.1 points per game.

    The Tigers’ last two road outings did nothing to hurt that stat, stonewalling Bethlehem 57-27 on Tuesday, then following that up with a 55-45 decision at Bullitt Central on Wednesday.

    “We’re picking it up” on defense, Bardstown coach Amber Courtney said. “Defense is what we can control; offense, sometimes, we cannot control. … We’re really working hard on team defense.”

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Bardstown defense keys blowout win

    Just four minutes into Tuesday’s showdown for first place in the boys’ 19th District standings, neither Bardstown nor Bethlehem could get anything done offensively, as the Tigers held a thin 2-1 lead.

    The possibility of a nip-and-tuck thriller was just an illusion, however, as Bardstown shifted into overdrive soon afterward, leaving Bethlehem stuck in first gear on the way to a resounding 64-34 win.

    “We had to keep moving and rotate” on defense, said Voshon Livers, who came off the bench for 10 points and five rebounds.

  • WRESTLING/SWIMMING: Generals place 4th in Cooper meet

    Nelson County and Thomas Nelson were both in wrestling tournament action over the weekend, with the Generals taking fourth place at Cooper and the Cardinals’ Andrew Ackley winning his weight division at North Hardin.

    Behind Bradley Nance and Cory Ashbaugh each placing second in their weight divisions, Thomas Nelson claimed a fourth-place finish in the team competition at the Cooper Jaguar Jungle Classic Saturday. Brice Reiter, Justin Stallings and Jonathan Dotson each placed third in their class.

  • HOOPS ROUNDUP: TNHS girls top Spencer, stop skid

    Thomas Nelson’s girls stopped a three-game skid Monday, paced by Madison Fritz’s 24-point outing to beat Spencer County, 64-44.

    The Generals got off to a fast start against the Bears (6-11), building a double-digit lead in the first half and cruising from there to improve to 5-8 overall headed into Tuesday’s road matchup after press time at Shelby County (12-3). Thomas Nelson is back in district play Friday at home against Bardstown (9-5) in a matchup of teams with one loss apiece in 19th District play.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: NC tops Bardstown

    Although both teams struggled on offense, Nelson County managed to play well enough to pick up a home district win on Friday, topping Bardstown 41-29.

    The Cardinals (8-4, 4-0 dist.) snapped the Tigers’ six-game winning streak, on their way to victory, taking advantage of the absence of Bardstown standout Alexis Brewer, who was sidelined with an illness.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Banshees rout Commanders

    Bethlehem turned the tables on Washington County after dropping a 10-point decision to the Commanders last month, using a strong press to score a bounce-back 57-38 win and stop a three-game skid.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Third-quarter eruption lifts Tigers past Cardinals

    Bardstown exploited a 28-9 third quarter run keyed by its suffocating defensive effort to smother Nelson County on Friday and stay undefeated in district competition by downing the Cards, 70-43.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Eagles blitz past WC

    Washington County opened the game Friday at Bethlehem by scoring off the opening tip.

    That was the last hurrah for the Commanders, however, as the Eagles responded with an 11-0 run and never trailed again on the way to a 69-53 win, improving to 11-2 overall and 4-0 in 19th District games.
