  • BASEBALL: Tigers have plenty of arms

    Bardstown will not win many baseball games this season because of the ability to hit the long ball or because of overpowering pitching, but coach Glenn Koger’s team has the ingredients to improve on its 20-16 record of a year ago.

    “I have 12 pitchers who aren’t going to blow the ball by anyone, but they have the ability to get the ball over the plate,” he said. “They will throw strikes and not give away free baserunners.”

  • BASEBALL: Generals have more depth than before

    Although the season has only just begun, Thomas Nelson second-year head coach Chris Downs says his club is already ahead of the game.

    “We have numbers this year, and that can make a difference in any sport,” he said. “We only had about 15 kids a year ago, but this year we have 24, and that’s a great help.”

    The Generals roster is not the only thing that has expanded—their depth and playing experience on the field has as well.

  • BASEBALL: Eagles have depth, experience

    With eight of nine starters returning, Bethlehem enters this season as one of the most experienced teams in the 19th District, and the Eagles are hopeful that leads to a district title, and then some.

    “We feel good about the experience we’ve got,” said Roger Robinson, the dean of 19th District coaches. “We feel like our team in general is one of the stronger teams we’ve had.”

  • On the record with: Bethlehem senior Jordan Thomas

    Bethlehem senior Jordan Thomas is this week’s nominee for The Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13/44 Auto Mart Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Jordan carries a 3.79 GPA and is a standout outfielder and pitcher for the Banshees’ softball team, winners of the past five district championships. Thomas is a regular on the travel ball circuit, and has signed with Western Kentucky to continue her softball career.

    Kentucky Standard sports editor Peter W. Zubaty had a few questions for Jordan to better get to know her.

     

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Tigers get walkoff win

    Bardstown is 3-0 on the young baseball season, its latest win coming by way of a dramatic walk-off single by Thomas Bowling in the seventh to lift the Tigers to a 3-2 win over Campbellsville.

    With the scored tied 2-2, Will Koger was hit by a pitch to open the bottom of the seventh and took second on a wild pitch, and Andrew Berry followed with a walk. With Michael Clements at bat, Koger then took third on another wild pitch before Clements flew out to right. The eighth-grader then scored the game-winner on Bowling’s single to center.

  • ARCHERY: Oakley’s aim is true

    The archers, bows in hand, move to their assigned positions, crowding next to one another from one end of the basketball court to the other.

    A large group of mostly disinterested spectators sit in the bleachers, a few watching their child prepare to compete, while the rest go on about their business.

    But when a tall, lanky, blonde-haired girl walks out, suddenly all eyes become as one, fixated on her as she goes through her routine before pulling back on the string that will release the arrow.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Tigers win 2 to open the baseball season

    Bardstown opened the baseball season with a pair of wins, with preseason all-state selection Reece Puckett coming up big both games.

    Puckett, a junior, scored four times Friday without the benefit of a base hit in the Tigers’ 20-7 win at Fort Knox, and in Thursday’s 7-2 home win over North Hardin, Puckett delivered a homer and a triple.
