  • BARDSTOWN TRACK AND FIELD PREVIEW: Tiger boys gunning for state crown

    Perhaps the greatest tribute to the late Tommy Williams is that today’s athletes continue to strive for not only region titles, but state championships as well.

    Williams was a five-time state championship-winning track coach who died in 2010 on the eve of the state cross country meet.

  • FOOTBALL: NC's Egli headed to MoCo

    Jamie Egli will always think fondly of his first head-coaching gig, and the “special things we were able to do” at Nelson County.

    “The kids are awesome at Nelson County High School,” said Egli, who announced last week he was taking over the head-coaching job at Montgomery County High School. “The kids make it worth it.”

  • BOYS' SOCCER: Tigers’ Bowman signs with St. Catharine

    The play of Bardstown senior Pierce Bowman was a primary reason the Tigers were able to capture the 2015 19th District soccer championship, the school’s first in 15 years.

    And now Bowman is hoping he will be able to work the same magic at St. Catharine College as the Patriots continue their quest for a Mid-South Conference title.

    He cast his lot with the Springfield school during a scholarship signing ceremony last week at Bardstown High School.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Banshees take control of softball district

    Jordan Thomas’ RBI double in the first and Kailey Miller’s run-scoring single in the second gave the Banshees all they needed for a 4-1 home win Wednesday to improve to 9-4 overall and 4-0 in district play.

    The Banshees are in charge of the 19th District race with the win, having topped Nelson County (12-0) and Thomas Nelson (17-5) earlier in the week, with a victory over Bardstown already in their back pocket.

  • BETHLEHEM TENNIS PREVIEW: Eagles fighting through injuries

    When you start a new season with a couple of your top aces on the shelf, it’s a true concern for any coach.

    This is the case for the Bethlehem tennis team as their top two boys — Jack Surtees and Adam Rogers — have begun the season sidelined with injuries.

    “This is a huge disappointment,” coach Lynn Hamilton said. “They are my No. 1 and No. 2 players, and I am not sure if or when they will return.”

  • THOMAS NELSON GENERALS TENNIS PREVIEW: Generals have new coach, new players

    If the young tennis players at Thomas Nelson can match their new coach’s enthusiasm about the upcoming season, there will be fun times ahead for the Generals’ program.

    Curt Merrifield has taken the reins of the team after serving as an assistant coach a year ago, and admits that there’s a big difference in the two positions.
