  • BOWLING: Cards, Generals finding their lanes

    In a sport where strikes are a good thing, the art of bowling takes time and patience, and for the two local schools that participate — Nelson County and Thomas Nelson — both are seeking an advantage as the postseason looms.

    Thomas Nelson boys’ coach Kris Cecil, who begins his fifth season, says he coaches for the love of the kids.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Bardstown proves too much for Nelson County

    Bardstown senior guard Daydrian Allen nailed four three-pointers while tallying 18 of his game-high 23 points in the first half Friday, lifting the Tigers to a 72-53 district road victory at Nelson County.

    “My team was able to hit me in transition a few times, and I knocked down some early shots,” Allen said. “We have been working on moving the ball around and nobody being selfish. I thought we all did a good job and had a good game tonight.”

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Cards survive Tiger upset bid

    Good teams can usually find a way to win, and good teams can fight through adversity.

    That was the case on Friday night, as No. 19 Nelson County faced a six-point deficit heading into the fourth quarter, but rallied back to escape with a 55-50 decision over visiting Bardstown.

    “It was more of a show tonight than a game,” Cardinals coach Kelly Wood said. “One thing I want to take from this is we won a close game and had to come from behind to do it. It might have woke us up a little bit. I had rather had this type of game now than later.”

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Hagan’s 38 lift Eagles

    Bethlehem picked up its 10th win of the season Tuesday, using a huge run to start the third quarter to pull out from a close game with Caverna to win 83-72.

    Junior Jacob Taylor scored eight points and had four blocks to key a 22-5 run to start the second half, turning a two-point halftime lead for the Eagles into a 19-point one at one point. Taylor ended up with 15 total points in the game.

    Also big during the run, and all game long, was senior Matthew Hagan, who drilled four three-pointers and poured in 38 to lead all scorers.

  • On the record with: TNHS junior Katelyn Flechler

    Thomas Nelson junior Katelyn Flechler is this week’s nominee for The Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13/44 Auto Mart Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Flechler carries a 4.0 GPA and is a starter for the Generals’ basketball squad after being a starter on the volleyball team in the fall.

    Kentucky Standard sports editor Peter W. Zubaty caught up with Katelyn for a few questions to better get to know her.

    BOYS: Martin’s basket gives Generals first win

    Ryan Martin went coast-to-coast for a basket at the buzzer to give Thomas Nelson its first win of the season on Friday, a 53-52 win over Hart County in the Magnolia Bank Classic at LaRue County.

    “The score was tied and they had two free throws,” Thomas Nelson Coach Brandon Johnson said. “We set up a play for whatever happened, and the boys executed it perfectly.”

    Martin’s heroics came after the Generals saw a 17-point lead erased in the final period.
