  • 5th REGION VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT: Bethlehem comeback stopped short in epic 5th set

    GREENSBURG — After a massive comeback from two sets down, Bethlehem had the finish line in sight with just two points left to claim a second straight berth in the 5th Region championship.

    Until it wasn’t.

    A stunned Elizabethtown stunned Bethlehem right back in Wednesday’s 5th Region volleyball semifinals at Green County, regaining momentum just in time to win three straight points to take the deciding fifth set by two points, and the match, three sets to two (25-20, 25-23, 26-28, 20-25, 15-13).

  • 5th REGION VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT: Generals can't keep momentum in 1st region appearance

    GREENSBURG — Thomas Nelson put an early scare into the defending region champs Tuesday, taking the first set in their 5th Region quarterfinal matchup 27-25.

    But the host Dragons rallied back to take the next three — 25-21, 25-19, 25-17 — and put an end to the Generals’ deepest postseason foray in school history.

    “My seniors deserved this,” first-year coach Darren Morris said. “I couldn’t be more happy with how the season turned out.”

  • GIRLS' STATE SOCCER SECTIONALS: Banshees take Mercy and march on to QFs

    LOUISVILLE — Bethlehem fought through a driving rainstorm, then held off host Mercy’s second-half comeback in Tuesday’s girls’ state soccer sectionals to win 3-2 and advance to Saturday’s quarterfinals.

    GREENSBURG — The LaRue County volleyball team had already gotten one taste of Bethlehem’s ability back in the season-opener, when the Banshees defeated the Hawks in four sets.

    But Coach Ben Schell’s club isn’t the same one the Banshees saw in August. The Hawks found their identity in the second half of the season, cruising to a top district seed and eventually a spot in the 5th Region Tournament at Green County.

  • FOOTBALL: Cards denied playoffs in season finale

    Nelson County came up on the wrong side of the ledger in a win-and-you’re-in playoff scenario Friday, as host Bullitt Central pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 28-8 win to claim the final playoff berth in Class 5A District 3.

    “This was such a disappointing loss,” Nelson County coach Jamie Egli said. “It’s the first time in a long time we haven’t made the playoffs, so it hurts.”

  • FOOTBALL: Bethlehem clinches district title

    Bethlehem clinched its second regular season Class 1A District 2 title in three years on Friday, destroying visiting Fort Knox 62-0 on homecoming night.

    The win secures Bethlehem (7-2) a top seed in the Class 1A Region 1 playoffs after a 3-0 district campaign, as well as the possibility of two home playoff games.

  • FOOTBALL: Tigers win No. 600

    Bardstown cruised to a 36-7 home win Friday over Thomas Nelson to close out the district slate, and also joined one of the elite clubs in Kentucky high school football in the process.

    Bardstown’s victory was the 600th in history for the program, which has played football since 1912, making it just one of 16 schools in Kentucky history to have won as many games.

    “It’s a pretty big win for the school,” Bardstown coach David Clark said, calling it an honor to be a part of it.
