  • TRACK AND FIELD: Tigers' Allen hopes to wrap up career in style

    Top-notch runners spoil their coaches.

    That’s what Ciera Allen has been doing to Bardstown coach Jeremy Dale for several years during a star-studded career that has seen the Tiger senior amass 10 state medals and a dozen region championships.

    Allen signed recently to continue her track career at Campbellsville University.

    “I’m excited, I’m really excited just to get a chance to run in college,” she said.

  • GOLF: Wild spring weather can help game

    Are you crazy!? Have you lost your mind!? This is nuts!

    I know you think I must be crazy, but hear me out. With temperatures on the rise during spring, chasing the golf ball can be a great deal of fun. With the proper gear and attitude, springtime golf can give you a boost and improve your game for the summer.

  • On the record with: Bethlehem's Flannery Musk

    Bethlehem senior Flannery Musk is this week’s nominee for Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Musk carries a 4.0 GPA and plans to attend Bellarmine in the fall, ideally joining sister Angela on the Knights’ track and cross country squad. She is involved in several clubs at the Bethlehem campus, including Teen Leadership Club and National Honor Society.

  • SPORTS DESK: Eagles into All A finals; Banshees fall in championship

    Bethlehem used a big sixth inning Wednesday to score a 6-4 win over host Caverna in the 5th Region All A Classic semifinals, leaving the Eagles one win away from Applebee’s Park and the state small-school baseball tournament.

    Junior Andrew Clark tossed a complete-game five-hitter to lead the Eagles to the win and put them into Saturday’s All A Classic region championship against Washington County (12-5). The Commanders advanced with a 3-2 win Wednesday over Green County.

  • SOCCER: Stallings signs with Evansville

    Sometimes an athlete has to achieve a number of smaller goals to reach that big goal. In Ryan Stallings’ case, 106 of those smaller goals.

    Stallings wrapped up his soccer career in the fall as the all-time leading scorer in Nelson County history, his record-setting high school career and competitive-league play drawing the attention of several colleges before the Cardinal senior finally settled on Division I Evansville University as his destination.

  • Tiger squads have strong week

    Bardstown’s boys and girls had a strong week, with each squad notching a pair of meet wins, including a 135-133 win by the Tiger girls at Thursday’s home meet over an Elizabethtown squad ranked No. 2 in Class 2A.

    The Tiger boys easily outdistanced the Panthers, 144-106.5 at Thursday’s Bardstown All-Comers Meet, and topped runner-up Nelson County in Tuesday’s LaRue County All-Comers Meet, 1110.5-81. The Tiger girls bested the Cardinals 82-59 on Tuesday.

  • On the record with: NCHS senior Abby Fenwick

    Nelson County track athlete Abby Fenwick is this week’s nominee for Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete Of The Week.

    A senior, Fenwick carries a 3.3 GPA and has emerged as the Cardinals’ top hurdler this season, including a first-place performance in the 100-meter hurdles at LaRue County Tuesday.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Filiatreau headed to Georgetown

    Stuck on the bench as a junior behind a strong group of seniors, Callie Filiatreau didn’t get many opportunities to develop her game until her senior season.

    Even when she did work her way into the Bethlehem lineup as a senior, Filiatreau, who didn’t play much club volleyball, was raw and inexperienced.

    The classic definition of a “late bloomer” is how her high school coach, Bill Smith, described Filiatreau, who signed recently with Georgetown College.

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Tiger coach adjusting to new role

    Jeremy Dale inherited a dual-edged sword of pressure in the form of lofty expectations with the potential of huge rewards when he took over total control of the Bardstown track and field program.

    Dale is in his first season as boys’ head coach, an unexpected promotion that came following the death of longtime Tiger coach Tom Williams in November. Dale took over the girls’ program three years ago, but the two shared a lot of the duties with the girls’ and boys’ teams.

  • Tiger girls dominate in home meet win

    Bardstown’s girls captured 13 events and the Tiger boys grabbed wins in eight more as the host school won its home opener meet Thursday.

    Caprisha Green (shot put, discus), Ciera Allen (100m, 200m dash) and Marina Culver (100m hurdles, 300m hurdles) individually accounted for six of the Tiger girls’ wins Thursday, and Allen also played a part in relay wins in the 4x100 and 4x200 as Bardstown runners dominated the day.
