  • FOOTBALL: Bardstown’s Obeng headed to Lindsey Wilson

    Bardstown football standout Jeshurun Obeng will be joining teammate Jaylen Smalley next year at Lindsey Wilson College.

    Obeng signed recently to play at the NAIA power, and he’s looking forward to making a difference on a team that has been ranked as high as No. 1 in the country.

    “They were the first school to start recruiting me and I’ve had a lot of interest in them,” he said. “I like the football program and I like their defense, and it just seemed like a good fit for me.”

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Tigers, Cardinals win three-game sets

    The first of several district weeks in the 19th District baseball seeding race is in the books, with Nelson County opening its slate with a sweep of Thomas Nelson, and Bardstown taking two of three — including a key road win — over Washington County.

  • TRACK and FIELD: NC girls slip by, Bardstown wins big in Cards’ home meet opener

    Nelson County’s girls edged John Hardin 126-125 ½ to sneak by in their home Icebreaker meet Tuesday at NCHS, grabbing first-place results in five events and second in three more.

    Bardstown placed fourth at the meet behind a big day by Haylee Koger, who swept the sprint events and was second in the long jump. Thomas Nelson was fifth and Bethlehem placed sixth.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Cardinals, Tigers get Game 1 wins Tuesday

    Nelson Co. got the win in Game 1 of its crosstown series with Thomas Nelson Tuesday, putting away the pesky Generals 14-7 to take an early lead in the district standings.

    Game 2 was after press time Thursday at Nelson County, while Game 3 is tonight at Thomas Nelson.

    In Tuesday’s matchup, the Cardinals got to Generals pitchers for 11 hits, and the Thomas Nelson defense had error trouble as well, committing six.

  • SOFTBALL: Tigers young all around the diamond

    Bardstown’s first-year head coach Amber Taylor is looking to develop and cultivate her own style of softball play.

    It’s something she learned and has been taught since her playing days at Asbury University: you evaluate your opponent beforehand, and depending on who and how they play, set your starters and your lineup.

  • SOFTBALL: Former SCC coach Smith takes over TNHS program

    Thomas Nelson softball coach Holly Smith has inherited a Generals team that graduated eight seniors, several of whom started, from a team that finished 12-23.

    Don’t feel sorry for her though.

    The former St. Catharine College coach knows what it is like to build a program.

  • SOFTBALL: Brooks takes on NC rebuild

    Kelsey Brooks can remember the glory days of Nelson County softball.

    The 2011 graduate of the school played on six district championship teams, the final one being the last of 21 consecutive titles won by the Cardinals.

    Nelson County has not worn that crown since then, and Brooks, who was a member of the varsity team while a seventh-grader, hopes that will soon change.

  • SOFTBALL: Banshees hope to return to perch

    Bethlehem saw its four-year run atop the 19th District come crashing down in a district championship upset to Washington County last year.

    To reclaim that throne, the Banshees will need its handful of upperclassmen returnees to take on bigger roles than ever before, and a deep group of newcomers to develop fast.

    “This is the youngest team I’ve had since year one,” said Shaun Smith, now in his sixth year as Bethlehem’s head coach. “We’re young but talented. Freshmen and middle-schoolers will play key roles.”
