  • SOFTBALL: NC’s Parsons signs with Lindsey Wilson

    Playing for a championship is a goal for athletes at every level, from the smallest of Pee Wee Leagues to the professionals who make millions of dollars.

    Nelson County softball player Bailey Parsons took a big step towards reaching that milestone when she signed Thursday to play college softball at Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: North Hardin too much for Bardstown

    With losses in three of their four previous games, Bardstown coach Amber Courtney was hoping her team would get back on track heading into district play when they hosted North Hardin Friday night.

    And despite falling to the Trojans 66-59, she thinks her team is ready to face Thomas Nelson Wednesday night in 19th District play.

  • STATE WRESTLING CHAMPIONSHIPS: NC’s Ackley places 3rd

    LEXINGTON — Nelson County senior Andrew Ackley rounded out his stellar career by placing third in the 160-pound bracket at the KHSAA State Wrestling Championships Saturday.

    But after qualifying for state for the first time back as a seventh-grader, he never realized how tough the quest for a state title would be.

  • PREP HOOPS ROUNDUP: Eagles finish with win

    If there’s one thing that Bethlehem head coach Artie Braden wants, it’s for his team to be prepared for postseason play and to be playing its best basketball at the right time.

    And, if Friday night’s game was any indication, then the Eagles (9-13) may be ready for a bright postseason run after rolling past visiting Holy Cross, 57-39, to close out the regular season ahead of Thursday’s matchup with Nelson County in the 19th District tournament.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Tigers top No. 16 Trojans in OT

    Bardstown coach James Brewer has a history of scheduling perennial powerhouses in the final weeks of the regular season to get his team ready for postseason play.

    He got that — and more — Friday night as his Tigers came from behind to post a 76-73 overtime win over North Hardin in the regular season finale before a large and raucous crowd at Tiger Gymnasium.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Nelson's Cornish signs with St. Catharine for hoops

    From back when Cameron Cornish got his first taste of varsity playing time as a sophomore up until now, with just a handful of games left in his high school career, the senior forward has continued to improve.

    His high school coach thinks that improvement won’t come to a halt anytime soon.
