  • PREP HOOPS ROUNDUP: Tiger girls rout WC; NC boys, girls top Bethlehem

    Bardstown wasted little time in bouncing back from Saturday’s loss to Green County in the 5th Region All A Classic championship, blasting Washington County at home, 75-19.

    The win kept the Tigers (12-8) still in the hunt for the top seed in the 19th District tournament at 4-1 in district play, but they would need to win road games next week at Bethlehem (3-3 district) and Nelson County (6-0).

    Five Bardstown players scored in double figures in the game, led by Kadence Walls’ 14 points, including three three-pointers.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Bardstown 2nd in NC Duals

    Bardstown picked up the runner-up trophy at Saturday’s eight-team Nelson County Duals, picking up wins over Grant County, Nelson County and Whitesville Trinity.

    Bardstown coach Jason Tilley said it has been a difficult year for his bunch as they have fought illnesses and injury, in addition to the limited practice time because of recent inclement weather.

  • BOYS' 5th REGION ALL A CLASSIC: Tigers fade in the 4th against Green Co.

    FORT KNOX — Bardstown’s triumphant return to All A Classic play fell short of its championship goal Saturday, as Green County held the Tigers without a field goal for nearly five minutes in the fourth quarter, and forced two critical turnovers in the final 17.4 seconds to escape with a 53-49 win.

    “We had plenty of opportunities to finish the game, and we just didn’t finish,” Bardstown coach James “Boo” Brewer said. The long scoring droughts proved too much to overcome.

  • GIRLS' 5th REGION ALL A CLASSIC: Dragons jump out early, hold Tigers off late

    FORT KNOX — Bardstown was unable to overcome foul trouble and turnover problems in the first half Saturday, and Green County hit its free throws down the stretch to hold off a comeback try to beat the Tigers 65-52 for the 5th Region All A Classic championship.

  • PREP HOOPS ROUNDUP: TNHS girls struggle on the road

    East Jessamine took advantage of Thomas Nelson’s frigid shooting, outscoring the Generals 40-16 in the second half en route to a 63-34 win on Friday.

    The Generals (8-8) were able to connect on only nine of their 35 shoots from inside the arc while making only one of their 13 three-point tries. Their combined 10 of 47 from the field was a dismal 21 percent.

    Still, Thomas Nelson was still within striking distance of the Jaguars at the halftime break, down 23-17.

  • GIRLS' 5th REGION ALL A CLASSIC: Tiger girls rout Knox, roll into All A finals

    FORT KNOX — Since Amber Courtney took over as Bardstown’s head coach four years ago, the Tigers have become a team synonymous with great defense.

    But in Friday’s All A Classic 5th Region semifinal against host Fort Knox, Bardstown’s defense went to a whole different level, as the Tigers blasted the Eagles 56-3 and did not permit a single field goal in the game.

  • BOYS' 5th REGION ALL A CLASSIC: Bardstown boys make triumphant return

    FORT KNOX — The last time James “Boo” Brewer coached a game at Fort Knox High School’s gym, it was five years ago.

    That game, a 72-48 Bardstown rout of rival Bethlehem in the 2013 All A Classic 5th Region championship, was the last year the Tigers were eligible for play in the small-school state tournament, and it seemed to be the last chapter in the school’s deep history in the tournament.

    Schedules

  • Weather shuffles HS hoops schedules

    Snow and cold weather this week have caused local school officials to shuffle around the high school basketball schedules.

    Included in that is the 5th Region All A Classic, which was set to begin Monday, but only the Green County v. Caverna games were played, with Green County winning in girls and boys to set up semifinal matchups with Bethlehem Thursday after press time at Fort Knox.
