  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Cards escape Knights’ upset bid

    Time and again on Friday night, Marion County junior guard Haeli Howard was able to penetrate the Nelson County defense for easy layups.

    But it was the one she missed as time expired that allowed the Cardinals to escape with a 59-57 victory.

    “Haeli Howard is just an excellent ballplayer,” said Nelson County assistant coach Jason Clark, who handled things in the absence of head coach Kelly Wood, who was serving a one-game suspension for a recent incident.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Generals grab 1st win of season

    The hard work Thomas Nelson has put in during this basketball season has shown its results in improved play lately, but the Generals haven’t had much opportunity to enjoy the fruits of their labor on the scoreboard. That is, until Wednesday.

    The Generals got their long-awaited first win of the season, dealing visiting Metcalfe County a 58-57 defeat and stopping their skid at 19 games.

    Generals coach Brandon Johnson said it has been a difficult start for his squad, but he’s been encouraged about how the players kept fighting toward their goal.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Bardstown wins fifth straight

    Since the calendar turned to 2016, Bardstown has been red-hot, winning six of seven, with the only setback a narrow 48-42 loss to Nelson County on Jan. 8.

    Last week’s snow didn’t interrupt that strong play, as the Tigers picked up three wins in three days this week to extend their current streak to five games, a stretch that has seen Bardstown outscore its opponents by 24.2 points per game.

  • ALL A CLASSIC: Green Co. too much for Bethlehem in finals

    CAMPBELLSVILLE — Bethlehem’s hopes for an All A Classic 5th Region championship and a trip to Frankfort for this week’s small-school state tournament were crushed Monday night when Green County prevailed 70-31 in a game delayed by last week’s snowstorm.

    Coach Chris Taylor’s Banshees did not back down in the early going against the Dragons, one of the top teams overall in the region.

    Carly Beam scored the game’s first basket before the winners scored back-to-back goals to take the lead.
