  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Generals close out Cards, 65-56

    As January starts to fade into the February stretch run, each district game gets just a little bit more important than the last, as teams do their jockeying for the best tourney seed possible.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Nelson tripped up by Adair, 49-46

    It was a heartbreaking loss on Friday, as Nelson County sprinted out to a double-digit lead in the first quarter, only to see visiting Adair County storm back to notch a 49-46 win.

    “I thought we fought hard, but we were sluggish tonight,” Cardinals coach Bev Hart said. “We had a good chance to win, but we just couldn’t make some plays.”

    Nelson County (6-10) came out strong and took control early with transition play and led 16-3 with 3:16 remaining in the first quarter.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: NC puts its foot down on TNHS

    Thomas Nelson came into Thursday night’s showdown at Nelson County as winners of five straight and, like the Cardinals, the Generals were unblemished in 19th District play.

    But if the upstart Generals had hopes of usurping the Cardinals and stopping their four-year win streak over district rivals, they quickly dissolved when Nelson County attacked Thomas Nelson with a furious press to open the game on a 20-2 tear, eventually winning 58-17.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Cardinals stay focused, hold off Indians

    It came down to which team could make their respective free throws. And in the end, Nelson County (14-5) stayed true to a team concept, as Caitlin Hagan and Brooklyn Greer both connected within the final minute of play from the charity line to seal a 44-42 win over visiting Adair County.

    “It’s always a close game with Adair County, and I told our girls going in it would probably come down to the last possession,” Cardinals head coach Kelly Wood said.

    The Indians (9-7) rallied with a 5-0 run to end the first half, and led 23-18 at the break.
