  • THURSDAY’S HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Cardinals split softball doubleheader

    Nelson County hosted a doubleheader Thursday, leading off with a win over Bardstown, 14-4, but Lexington Catholic spoiled the back end by topping the Cardinals, 7-3.

    In the opener, Nelson County pitcher Mattie Robbins struggled with her control early, allowing all four Bardstown runs in the first. Robbins was outstanding after that, allowing the Tigers (2-14) just three hits and a walk the rest of the way, giving the Cardinal offense time to get going.

  • ALL A CLASSIC SECTIONALS: Eagles snare 3rd straight

    Bethlehem was looking for its third straight trip to the Touchstone Energy All A Classic in Lexington, and the Eagles found it in the form of a 6-2 sectional win Thursday over Holy Cross.

    “It was a great feeling and a great team win,” Bodine said. “We swung the bats well and played solid defensively. After losing eight starters from last year, it was a great night defeating a real good Holy Cross team. We all played hard and it paid off for us.”

  • BOYS’ BASKETBALL: Tiger standout Cowherd inks with Georgetown

    In his time on the Bardstown varsity, it could be said that L.J. Cowherd made his name synonymous with one thing in the local sports dictionary.

    “He’s a winner,” said Cowherd’s coach, James “Boo” Brewer.

    That winning disposition saw Cowherd become a driving force behind arguably the most successful period in Bardstown’s boys’ basketball history, and it informed the senior point guard’s decision as to where to go to continue his career.

  • TRACK and FIELD: Tiger boys win TNHS meet

    Devin Cummings and Julian Rogers won two events apiece at Tuesday’s Thomas Nelson All-Comers meet, leading the Bardstown boys to a team win over runner-up Nelson County, 170-126.

    Cummings won both the triple jump and 400-meter dash, while Rogers captured the discus and shot put to provide 40 points for the Tigers’ cause.

    The Bardstown relay squad captured the 4x400 and ran second in the 4x100 (won by Nelson County) and 4x200.

  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Cards top Generals to stop skid

    Nelson County struck early and often Wednesday, getting an early 3-0 lead after one inning and running with it to defeat Thomas Nelson, 12-5.

    Bailey Parsons and Caroline Boone each had two hits and three runs apiece for the Cardinals, while Parsons tossed all seven innings to get the win. Hallie Mattingly went 3-for-5 and scored twice.

    Thomas Nelson scored three times in the third inning to pull within 4-2, but the Cardinals got four runs in the fourth and two more in the fifth and were never seriously threatened after that.

  • BASEBALL: District wide open early

    The 19th District baseball race is a bit of a jumbled mess so far, with no one yet stepping forward as a clear favorite.

    Bethlehem gets the early nod to this point, as the Eagles sit at 13-5 overall and 3-1 in district competition following a 5-4 walkoff win Wednesday night over Washington County.

  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Nelson rallies to top TNHS on the diamond

    Nelson County fell behind early, but erupted late to win their fourth in their past five games, topping Thomas Nelson 7-2 in a Saturday morning 19th District baseball affair.

    The Generals (5-9 overall, 0-3 dist.) got on the board in the third, as Ivo Mudd got on by way of an error and Corey Zylinski followed with a one-out single and stole second. That set up Kyle Burton, who drove in Mudd with a sacrifice fly, and Eli Clark’s two-out single made it 2-0.

  • TRACK and FIELD: Bardstown boys 3rd in Cardinal Classic

    Nelson County held its first-ever Cardinal Classic Invitational Thursday, as the rains from earlier in the week finally gave way.

    Bardstown’s boys were the top local finisher, placing second, with Elizabethtown claiming a 114-97.50 margin.

    Nelson County’s boys were fourth, while Thomas Nelson was seventh and Bethlehem placed 11th.
