    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).

  • GIRLS’ BASKETBALL: NC dominance continues

    Nelson County extended its winning streak against district opponents to 38 games on Friday night when they whipped visiting Bardstown, 63-34.

    Not since Daizah Kimberland led the Tigers to a 50-42 triumph on Jan. 9, 2010, has a 19th District foe been able to knock off the Cardinals.

    Nelson coach Kelly Wood’s team was able to pick up its 17th win against only five losses with the same blueprint for success that has been used all season.

  • BOYS’ BASKETBALL: Tiger boys rout Cardinals

    Keanu Young scored 15 of his game-high 16 points in the first half to lead his Bardstown Tigers to a 76-50 win over homestanding Nelson County is a battle of 19th District foes.

    The winners scored the game’s first eight points, including one of three treys in the half by Young, before a pair of three-pointers by Austin Ellis cut the gap to 10-6. Bardstown scored seven straight points before leading 21-12 at the first break.

  • BOYS’ BASKETBALL: Eagles, Generals light up scoreboard

    So far this season, Bethlehem and Thomas Nelson have delivered a pair of classics, beginning with a one-point Generals win in December, with that one being topped by Friday’s high-scoring 91-84 home win by the Eagles.

    Senior Shane Beisler, who scored 30 to lead Bethlehem, said the teams’ third meeting later this month in the 19th District tournament figures to be a grudge match.

    “I don’t know” if we can top Friday, he said. “That was a bunch of offense.”

  • GIRLS’ BASKETBALL: Banshees rally late to stun Generals

    Down 11 midway through the fourth quarter, Bethlehem dug deep and came up with a furious 15-3 run to close the game Friday and stun visiting Thomas Nelson, 48-46.

    “We just knew this was a game we needed,” said Banshees senior MacKenzie Hagan, who got all 15 of her points after halftime. “We had to do whatever it took.”
