  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Banshees shut out Generals in district opener

    Bethlehem took the early lead in the 19th District girls’ soccer race, snaring a 2-0 road win at Thomas Nelson Wednesday.

    “The four teams in the district seem to be evenly matched, but any time you get a road win in a quality district such as ours, it’s always a plus,” Banshees coach Danny Rossoll said. “It’s important to keep improving each and every day. Time to get back to work.”

    Neither team could break through in the first half, but the Banshees finally broke through in the 50th minute with the eventual game-winner.

  • HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Nelson Co. tops Bardstown in four sets

    Nelson County won six matches in volleyball to capture the Boyle County Invitational over the weekend, then picked up its first district win of the season Monday night, dispatching Bardstown in four sets.

    The Cardinals sit at a perfect 8-0 in matches this year following the 3-1 win on the Tigers’ home floor. Nelson County claimed the first set, 25-21, but Bardstown battled back to level it at one set apiece by winning a thrilling second frame, 27-25.

  • 2014 KENTUCKY STANDARD CROSS COUNTRY PREVIEW: Bethlehem’s numbers growing

    If Bethlehem’s motto is, “Hard work pays off,” then head coach Eddie Masterson is hoping this will be the breakout season for his runners.

    “We have built our numbers, and our kids have shown a lot of endurance,” he said. “This is a physical sport, but I feel we could make a good run this season. Our region is going to be tough, but a trip to the state is not out of the question.”

  • 2014 KENTUCKY STANDARD CROSS COUNTRY PREVIEW: Tigers learning under new coach

    Bardstown opens its 2014 cross country season with a new coach on board, but without one of the top runners in school history.

  • 2014 KENTUCKY STANDARD CROSS COUNTRY PREVIEW: TNHS boys seeking third straight state trip

    Building depth in the ranks is the biggest challenge coach Matt Hoyes faces.

  • FOOTBALL: Bardstown offense too much for Campbellsville

    The Young cousins put on quite a show Sunday night in the Forcht Bank Bowl.

    Keanu Young of Bardstown rushed for 135 yards and accounted for three touchdowns as Bardstown toppled Campbellsville 43-27 Sunday night at Campbellsville University.

    The game was postponed on Saturday because of lightning and storms, and the Tigers had to sit through a 40-minute weather delay on Sunday.

    Young’s cousin, Kendon Young of Campbellsville, scored a pair of touchdowns and rushed for 202 yards.
