    GOLF: French still swinging

    The high school season was finished a couple of months ago, and many local golfers have put their clubs up for the season.

    But Thomas Nelson senior Cody French continues to play competitively, and, quite well.

    French qualified in November to represent a Kentucky team that traveled to Sea Island, Ga., to play in a Hurricane Junior Golf Tour event.

    He teamed with Michael Brown in the opening day in a best ball/alternate shot format to finish third out of 48 teams.

  • GOLF: Top Eagle Steele lands at Brescia

    Daniel Steele was like most boys growing up in Bardstown.

    The Bethlehem High School senior played baseball in the summer, football in the fall, and basketball in the winter months.

    He dabbled some with golf, playing with his father, Bud, at Cedar-Fil.

    While he was “not a bad player in any of them,” he began turning to golf as his sport of choice.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Tiger boys get emotional win over Adair

    Bardstown began Friday night’s game against Adair County like it was a car race, speeding up and down the court and scoring with ease.

    But just as quickly, after jumping out to a 15-4 lead in the opening quarter, the Tigers dropped to a slower pace, more like a funeral procession.

    And that’s what coach James “Boo” Brewer said was on his team’s mind in the second quarter as they saw that lead dissipate before managing a 31-30 lead at the half.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Cards wallop Bruins in opener

    Nelson County had little trouble in Tuesday’s season opener, blasting Central Hardin 83-30.

    The Cardinals shot 50.9 percent from the field overall and even better on three-pointers at 58.3 percent thanks to a big night behind the arc by senior Brooklyn Greer, who hit five of seven attempts. Greer ended up with a game-high 24 points and also contributed five rebounds and six steals, as well as two assists.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Tigers rout Marion to open season strong

    At Bardstown, Boo Brewer doesn’t rebuild his team every year.

    He reloads.

    Twelve players broke into the scoring column Tuesday night as the Tigers opened the season with a 92-59 win over Marion County at the Roby Dome.

    “We’re lucky to have so many different guys who can play different positions, and we can afford to be aggressive defensively,” Brewer said.

    Bardstown’s full-court pressure caused havoc for the Knights, who took an early six-point lead before the first quarter ended deadlocked at 16.

  • 2015-16 KENTUCKY STANDARD BASKETBALL PREVIEW: TNHS girls want to make the leap this season

    This could be the year that Thomas Nelson advances to the regional tournament for the first time.

    That’s how Generals girls basketball coach Joshua Whitehouse is viewing the 2015-2016 season.

    Heading into his second season at the helm, Whitehouse says his team is returning enough solid performers that it should be in the mix for the 19th District race.

    “We lost only two seniors (Evelyn Tichenor and Hunter Holt), but I think we have some very strong, experienced players,” Whitehouse said.

    It might be year four of the school’s existence but, unfortunately, it’s year two of a rebuilding program for Thomas Nelson basketball.
