    When you’re playing the defending state champs, perhaps self-motivation comes easy, but it also helps when your starting point guard has her best game of the season.

    Both were the case Friday night as Nelson County held on at home to defeat Marion County, 73-62.

    Freshman guard Shyla Calbert led her team with a game-high 21 points, while giving a stellar defensive effort to thrust her squad to a sixth straight win.

    Nelson County was unable to pull off a homecoming comeback Friday, falling short 71-66 to visiting Marion County.

    The Knights (14-5) provided just enough offense to squeeze out a win, allowing the Cardinals to rally from 16 down to just four in the final minutes, but Nelson County was unable to complete the comeback, suffering its fifth straight loss.

    BOYS: Hutchins’ big half lifts Eagles

    Jude Hutchins erupted for 20 of his 24 points after halftime Wednesday as Bethlehem pulled away from Walden for a 77-64 win.

    Hutchins hit four three-pointers in the second half and scored 12 in the third quarter as the Eagles turned a two-point halftime advantage into a double-digit margin.

    Shane Beisler was also hot from beyond the arc, hitting four threes on the way to 14 points. J.T. Mattingly and Derek Goode each hit a pair of triples and combined for 23 points.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: B'town girls maturing

    Bardstown firmed up its hold on the No. 3 seed in the girls’ 19th District race, jumping on top of Washington County from the opening tip on the way to a 54-27 win.

    “They just had a no-lose attitude,” Tigers coach Jamie Neal said.

    Neal said her team changed things up a bit defensively from their previous meeting with the Commanders, a 47-40 Tiger win in mid-December, opting for a man-to-man attack instead of their typical zone.

  • SPORTS BRIEF: Curtsinger 6th at bowling regions

    BOWLING: Curtsinger 6th at regions

    Tuesday’s 5th Region individual bowling tournament saw Taylor County dominate the proceedings, as Cardinals grabbed six of the available eight state berths to the KHSAA state bowling tournament next month in Lexington.

    Top local result went to Kristen Curtsinger of Nelson County, who placed sixth, just missing one of the four qualifying berths. The junior had a 240 high game and posted a five-game total of 864.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Tigers thrash Commanders

    Bardstown dismantled Washington County with a devastating 26-2 run to open the game Tuesday and remain undefeated in 19th District play on the way to a 75-32 home win.

    Most years would find Bardstown away at the All A Classic, gearing up for another deep tournament run, but growth at the school led to the Tigers being ineligible for the small-school state tournament after going to the finals in 2013 and 2012. Traditionally, the tournament was used as a springboard into the final month of the season by the Tigers, usually one of the 5th Region favorites.
