  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: BHS, TNHS win VB tourneys

    Bardstown and Thomas Nelson played a lot of volleyball in a short span during last weekend’s tournaments, using the time to bond and grow as teams. And pick up some trophies in the process.

    Bardstown went 5-0 on Saturday to win the gold bracket at the First Spike tournament at the Ohio Valley Volleyball Center, scoring victories over Woodford County, Whitefield Academy, Spencer County and Bullitt Central, and then Bullitt East in a tight finals match, 25-21, 23-25, 26-24.

  • On the record with: Thomas Nelson’s Ethan Lamar

    Thomas Nelson senior soccer player Ethan Lamar is this week’s Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete of the Week.

    One of Thomas Nelson’s top forwards on the soccer pitch, Ethan carries a 4.0 GPA and is involved in the school’s Student Organization Council, and plays for the Generals’ basketball team in the winter.

    Kentucky Standard sports editor Peter W. Zubaty had a few questions for Ethan to better get to know him.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Boys’ soccer districts heating up

    The 19th District boys’ soccer race is starting to take shape, and like many of the district’s coaches suggested in the preseason, there’s not a lot separating the area teams.

    Thursday night found Nelson County and Bethlehem matched up at Lally Field, while just a few blocks away, Bardstown was hosting Thomas Nelson in a rematch from the past two district title games.

  • FOOTBALL: Glasgow rolls past young Bardstown, 47-9

    You might say Bardstown coach David Clark has seen enough of the Smiths.

    Just one week after Purdue recruit Kadin Smith scored four touchdowns to lead Spencer County to a 36-14 win over the Tigers, another Smith — Dalvin — rushed for scores of 75 and 91 yards and passed for three more touchdowns as Glasgow rolled to a 48-9 win over Clark’s team.

    “They are both very good players, and they were two very good football teams we opened against,” Clark said.

  • FOOTBALL: Generals rout Cardinals

    Thomas Nelson extended Nelson County’s current losing streak to 12 games Friday night, building a 9-0 lead after just four plays from scrimmage on the way to a 37-13 win.

    “This is an important game for us, because we went to middle school with all of them,” Generals senior Chase Howard said of his Cardinal opponents. “We came in here with a lot of intensity, and a lot of hype coming into this game. We worked hard all week.”

    Bethlehem stared down a two-touchdown deficit heading into the fourth quarter against Washington County at Lally Field Friday night, and rallied all the way back to force overtime.

    But after the Commanders (2-0) scored on the first overtime series, the Eagles were unable to answer, falling 29-22.

    Bethlehem coach Jesse Cantrall was proud of his team’s effort throughout the game.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Bardstown girls blitz past Thomas Nelson in district opener

    Bardstown took control early of its district girls’ soccer opener Wednesday at Thomas Nelson, scoring a pair of goals in the first 10 minutes of the match on the way to a 5-1 win.

    That gave Bardstown (3-2) three straight wins, as well as an early leg up in the 19th District soccer race.

  • KENTUCKY STANDARD 2017 CROSS COUNTRY PREVIEW: TNHS boys bouncing back this year

    This is a good year to be associated with the Thomas Nelson boys’ cross country team.

    And why not?

    The Generals return the nucleus of their strong team from a year ago and, according to coach Matt Hoyes, have been ranked as high as ninth in the state based on the runners’ times from last year.

    “Those times can only get better,” he said. “We didn’t lose one scoring guy to graduation, and I have one guy who is not coming back to run, and he was like our fifth score.”
