  • 2014 KENTUCKY STANDARD FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Tigers looking for deep playoff run in 2A

    It’s been said that in years when Bardstown gets good line play, success tends to follow.

    The Tigers have one of the biggest, most experienced lines they’ve had in the past decade, and combine that with a healthy chip on their shoulder over a lack of respect, and it could lead to great things.

  • GIRLS’ BASKETBALL: LaRue’s Alexis Brewer comes to Bardstown

    When school began last week in LaRue County, one familiar face was missing from the halls of LaRue County High School.

    Alexis Brewer, the 16-year-old Hawks basketball standout, has enrolled in Bardstown High School, and will finish up her career as a Tiger, like her father and brothers before her.

    Brewer is one of the top-10 recruits in the state, and broke numerous records in her career at LaRue. A contender for Kentucky’s Miss Basketball, Brewer said, “I just want to have a good senior year, and enjoy the time with my dad.”

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

    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.

    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.
