  • PREP GOLF ROUNDUP: NC tops B'town; Eagles whip Marion

    Led by Corey Robinson’s 39, Bethlehem picked up a 169-188 road win at Rosewood on Wednesday.

    As has been the case in the early part of the season, the Eagles got good bunching of their scores, with their top four at 45 or under.

    Bethlehem visits North Bullitt Tuesday.


    Cards top Tigers

    Parker Taylor’s 44 was low round and all four Nelson County players posted sub-50 scores to lift the Cardinals past Bardstown Tuesday at Maywood, 179-203.

  • 2014 KENTUCKY STANDARD BOYS' SOCCER PREVIEW: Tigers wanting to take next step

    One word could possibly sum up the upcoming campaign for the Bardstown Tigers soccer squad — and that would be “momentum.”

    The squad is fresh off its first winning season since 2000’s state tournament squad, and for Aaron Boggs, who has coached the Tigers for 15 seasons over two stints, it’s an exciting time.

  • 2014 KENTUCKY STANDARD BOYS' SOCCER PREVIEW: Eagles try to bounce back

    The 2013 soccer season was a disappointing one for Bethlehem, which saw its long streak of district championships and region tournament appearances snapped.

    But coach Tim Hurst says that he thinks his team can right the ship this year.

    “We had a tough schedule last year and we were very competitive, but we couldn’t finish many games,” he said.

    The Eagles finished 7-13-1 and lost their final seven matches, including a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Thomas Nelson in the 19th District semifinals.

  • 2014 KENTUCKY STANDARD BOYS' SOCCER PREVIEW: Generals young but hoping for a repeat title

    The second year of Thomas Nelson’s boys’ soccer program proved to be a landmark season, as the Generals rode a group of 10 seniors to a 15-7 mark and upended their former Nelson County teammates to win the school’s first district championship.

    “It was pretty awesome,” midfielder Aaron Love said. “Nobody expected us to win.”

    Last year’s senior group is gone now, with graduation claiming 80 percent of the team’s scoring.

  • 2014 KENTUCKY STANDARD BOYS' SOCCER PREVIEW: Experienced Cards looking for a deep run

    With a slew of seniors and a number of experienced underclassmen back for this season, the 2014 campaign could be a special one for Nelson County.

    “We’ve got a good chance to win district,” Tyler Tipton said, “if players step up.”

  • 2014 KENTUCKY STANDARD GIRLS' SOCCER PREVIEW: Momentum key for Tigers

    Bardstown had a disappointing regular season in 2013, but the Tigers caught fire in the postseason, when it matters most.

    They’re looking to carry that momentum over, and would love to build on the energy that this year’s team possesses.

    The Tigers knocked off the district’s top seed Thomas Nelson in the opening round of postseason play last fall, and narrowly missed making it to the region championship game, falling in the semifinals to Central Hardin in a shootout.

  • 2014 KENTUCKY STANDARD GIRLS' SOCCER PREVIEW: Nelson County trying for three straight

    After being crowned district champs last year for the second straight season and third in the past four campaigns, Nelson County has high aspirations for a repeat, yet again.

    “Our expectations are the same, year in and year out,” said head coach Mike Glass. “We have a wide range of experience, and we are looking for that team chemistry right now. But, just how good can we be when the season starts — well, that is too early to tell.”

  • 2014 KENTUCKY STANDARD GIRLS' SOCCER PREVIEW: Banshees want big senior push

    It is a coach’s dream.

    Plenty of seniors with lots of experience, solid athleticism, and a feel for the game.

    That’s what coach Danny Rossoll has in place as he enters into his ninth year as the Bethlehem soccer coach.

    “We have 10 seniors this year and that is by far the biggest senior class that I’ve had since I’ve been coaching,” he said. “Most of these girls have played on competitive teams during the offseason.”
