  • REGION 2 WRESTLING: Several area wrestlers advance to Saturday

    RADCLIFF — A handful of wrestlers were still alive for state tournament berths as of Saturday morning at press time at the Region 2 wrestling championships at North Hardin.

    Bardstown, in just its second full year as a varsity program, was hoping to land more than just one state qualifier this year, coach Jason Tilley said.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: State bowling, region wrestling and swimming this weekend

    Postseason play in high school basketball is still more than a week away, but other sports find themselves in the thick of regional and state competition this weekend.

    Nelson County’s girls’ bowling squad makes its first-ever appearance at the state tournament on Friday.

  • PREP HOOPS ROUNDUP: Nelson Co., Bardstown girls pick up road wins

    Bardstown’s girls went on the road Tuesday to grab win No. 18 on the season, scoring a 62-47 decision at Meade County.

    Destanie Love got 19 points and 10 rebounds to record her 14th double-double of the year. The junior is averaging 17 points and 10 rebounds a game. The Tigers’ win marked the third straight season the program has won at least 18 games, all under head coach Amber Courtney.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Tigers make plays late to tame Bulldogs

    Coaches always say rebounding is all about going after the ball and getting it, especially on the offensive end.

    Bardstown’s desire to do that in the fourth quarter turned a close game into a 73-66 victory, grabbing two offensive rebounds on missed free throws and turning them into six points to hold off John Hardin and stay undefeated against 5th Region rivals.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: TNHS standout signs with EKU

    In just five seasons since Thomas Nelson High School opened, the girls’ soccer program has grown to be a consistent district and region threat.

    A big part of that has been the play and leadership of senior Claire Hicks, who signed last week to continue her playing career at Eastern Kentucky University.

  • On the record with: Bardstown’s Destanie Love

    Bardstown junior Destanie Love is this week’s nominee for The Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13/44 Auto Mart Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Destanie is a three-sport standout for the Tigers in track, volleyball and basketball, and leads the 17-8 Bardstown basketball squad in scoring and rebounding this year, posting averages of 17 points and 10.4 boards per contest. She carries a 4.0 GPA and was a key contributor for the Tigers during their run to the region title match in volleyball in the fall.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Eagles win, Generals fall Monday

    Thomas Nelson held Caverna’s high-powered offense in check for two and a half quarters but the Colonels exploded, in the closing minutes of the third quarter en route to a 69-48 win on Monday.

    Caverna came into the game averaging nearly 75 points per game, but was limited to only 25 in the opening half as they led by one at the intermission.

    Thomas Nelson actually led 20-19 midway through the second quarter after a Ryan Martin (16 points) basket.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Monday kind to local squads

    They honored their seniors in pre-game activities, but it was a freshman who jump-started the Thomas Nelson offense as the Generals blasted visiting Caverna 54-31 on Monday.

    The game was delayed for nearly 15 minutes as the Colonels arrived late, but the losers wasted no time in jumping out to a 4-0 lead in the opening quarter.

    That’s when Kenleigh Fritz stripped a Caverna ballhandler on successive trips down the floor and converted them into layups. She then hit a three-point basket to push her team in front.
