  • BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Nelson girls rout Adair for 7th straight, Tigers sweep DH with Generals

    In the most recent version of the Courier-Journal’s girls’ Litkenhous Ratings, Nelson County was ranked No. 2 in the 5th Region, with Adair County just fractions of a point behind in third.

    Looks like there’s a little more distance than that between them, as the Cardinals won their seventh straight game with an emphatic 76-58 road decision Friday over the Indians (16-5).

  • BOYS' 5th REGION ALL A CLASSIC CHAMPIONSHIP: Cold shooting dooms Bethlehem in All A Region Finals

    It wasn’t the script the Bethlehem faithful had in mind.

    Playing on its home court against a Campbellsville team that it had handled easily just a month ago, a fourth trip to the Touchstone Energy All A Classic state tournament — and first since 2003 — seemed on the horizon for the local Eagles.

    But that dream was shattered Friday night when coach Artie Braden’s team fell 52-46, and it will be Campbellsville coach Tim Davis who will be taking a team to the tournament next for the seventh time.

  • BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Nelson girls extend district streak to 48

    For a few minutes Tuesday, Thomas Nelson posed a threat to Nelson County’s five-year winning streak against 19th District opponents.

    The Generals scored the first three points of the game, but that was their swan song. The Cardinals scored the next 15 points of the game to take control and never looked back on the way to a 74-49 win, their 48th straight, a streak dating back two years before the opening of TNHS.

  • GOLF: Tigers' Lenberger signs with Georgetown

    It’s never too late to follow an ambition or a dream; at least that’s the case for Bardstown High School golfer Natalie Lenberger.

    The senior started her game on the links just four short years ago, and now with determination and hard work on the course and in the classroom, the 4.0 GPA student has earned an academic and an athletic scholarship at the next level.

    Lenberger — who averaged a 53 during her career, recently signed her letter of intent to pursue her education and golfing career at Georgetown College.

  • 5th REGION ALL A CLASSIC: Eagles roll into championship

    Bethlehem rallied from a halftime deficit Wednesday to score a 70-59 win over Caverna in the Touchstone Energy 5th Region All A Classic semifinals, putting the Eagles one step away from advancing to the small-school state tournament for the first time since 2003.

    Bethlehem hosts Campbellsville (7-11) at 6 p.m. in tonight’s championship for the right to take on 15th Region champ Shelby Valley (12-7) in Thursday’s statewide All A Classic first round. Bethlehem and Campbellsville met in December, with the local Eagles grabbing a 59-47 win.

  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: NC girls upend No. 7 Mercer

    With most everyone on the roster missing games at some point because of injuries or illnesses, Nelson County has faced its fair share of adversity so far.

    That adversity seems to be paying off now, most recently on Saturday when the Cardinals dropped top-10 Mercer County, 67-63, to score their biggest win of the year.

  • SWIMMING: NC's Hutchins gunning for another big year

    When Margie Kjera was a senior swimmer on the 2010 Nelson County team, there was a young sixth-grader named Will Hutchins who joined the group.

    “I just remember that he swam faster as a sixth-grader than I did as a senior,” she said with a laugh.

    The two are back together again, but in different roles.

    Kjera is the new swim coach at Nelson County and Thomas Nelson while Hutchins is now a junior and still swimming — only a lot faster.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Cardinals roll on to No. 47 in district; top No. 5 Mercer Co. Saturday

    The Nelson County train just keeps on chugging down the track, as the Cardinals blasted Bethlehem Friday to extend their district win streak to 47 games, then followed it up Saturday night by stunning No. 5 Mercer County.
