  • BOWLING: Boys teams knocked out early at regions

    Turnabout is surely fair play.

    Just one day after the Nelson County girls ousted Taylor County en route to a runner-up finish in the bowling regionals in Elizabethtown, the Taylor County boys returned the favor on Saturday.

    They beat Nelson County 4-1 in the quarterfinals and went on to finish second to Russell County. Nelson County was seeded sixth in the 11-team field and defeated Green County in its opening-round match. It was the Dragons’ girls who beat the Cardinals in the girls’ finals on Friday.

  • On the record with: NCHS' Marly Walls

    Nelson County senior basketball player Marly Walls is this week’s nominee for The Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete of the Week.

  • Longtime volunteers make HS sports go

    Local sporting events just don’t happen on their own.

    In addition to the coaches and players and officials, there is a lot happening behind the scenes to make these contests come to fruition.

    There are the gate workers and concession workers, bookkeepers and scoreboard operators, and others who work together to ensure the games go off without a hitch.

    Oftentimes, it is parents of the participants who fill those roles.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Walls nets 2,000 in NC win

    Standout senior basketball player Marly Walls wasn’t sure what was going on in Monday’s 73-32 home win over Thomas Nelson when PA announcer Steve Finch made an announcement to the crowd during a stoppage in play.

    The announcement was that Walls, a regular varsity contributor since she was a middle-schooler and a starter since her freshman season, had joined the prestigious NCHS 2,000-point club.

    Walls said she was proud of her accomplishment, and humbled to join such lofty company among the school’s basketball legends.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Third win elusive for Generals; Tigers hold off KCD

    CAMPBELLSVILLE — Thomas Nelson continues to improve with every outing, but the Generals cannot capture that elusive third win.

    The Generals kept battling back against a very strong and athletic Campbellsville team on Friday, but finally succumbed 77-55 in a game that was much closer than the final score.

    They fought back from a 39-29 disadvantage early in the second half and closed to within two after back-to-back three-point shots from Jerry Wimsett and Jessie Bowman.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: TNHS girls fade late on the road

    Thomas Nelson overcame an eight-point third-quarter deficit to take a 46-45 lead with three minutes left in the game, but could not hold on late in falling at Campbellsville 51-46 on Friday.

    Katelyn Flechler had a basket and a pair of free throws to help the visitors knot the score at 40 and then four points from Bailey Stiles and a field goal by Josie Reiter gave Thomas Nelson its first lead of the game with 2:56 remaining in the final quarter.

    However, they went scoreless the rest of the way and saw their record fall to 9-11 on the season.

  • BOWLING: NC girls, TNHS’ Reed region runners-up

    ELIZABETHTOWN — A pair of local high school bowlers turned in impressive performances at Thursday’s regional tournament at the E’town Lanes, and earned themselves a spot in the Feb. 8 state championships in Louisville.

    In addition, the Nelson County girls will be returning to the state tournament for the second consecutive year after finishing as runner-up in Friday’s team competitions. Results from Saturday’s boys’ team competition were unavailable as of press time for this edition.
