    Behind freshman Jasmin Boggs’ game-high 16 points, Bardstown handed Thomas Nelson a season-ending loss Wednesday evening in the 19th District semifinals, 62-40, advancing to the district championship game Friday night. 

    First-quarter action between the tournament-host Tigers and Generals was back and forth. Thomas Nelson took an early 5-4 lead halfway through the period — its only lead of the game — with all five points coming from free throws. 

  • BOYS' 19th DISTRICT TOURNAMENT: WC pulls away from TNHS in the third

    Thomas Nelson coach Brandon Johnson’s game plan against Washington County in Tuesday’s boys’ 19th District tournament play-in game at Bardstown was to put the clamps on All-Region performer D.T. Yocum, the Commanders’ top scorer with 23.2 points per outing.

    It worked.

    For most of the first quarter.

    A pair of three-pointers by Justin Culver staked the Generals to an early 10-7 lead before Washington County went on a 20-3 run en route to a 73-48 victory.

  • GIRLS' 19th DISTRICT TOURNAMENT: Banshees put away Commanders late

    Bethlehem frittered away an early 8-0 lead, then regained its footing with a 19-4 run over a six-minute span in the first half and went on to a 57-42 win over Washington County Tuesday night in the play-in game of the girls’ 19th District tournament at Bardstown.

    Mikiah Bryant scored six of her 13 points in the opening period to give the Banshees the early lead, most coming from the inside.

    Local schools did not win any championships in the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) Region 5 championship held last weekend at Taylor County, but three of them made their presence known.

    Kentucky Standard sports editor Peter W. Zubaty had a few questions for Austin to get to know him better.

     

  • 19th DISTRICT TOURNAMENT: Monday's games pushed back to Tuesday

    Bardstown senior Jalen Smalley — along with several family members, fellow classmates and faculty — celebrated Thursday in the school auditorium with Smalley’s decision to continue his education and football career at Lindsey Wilson College.

    The small NAIA school, which spent time at No. 1 last fall, will be receiving an incoming freshman eager to not only help lead the Blue Raiders to continued success, but to achieve personal goals along the way. 

  • PREP HOOPS ROUNDUP: Nelson boys rout Campbellsville to grab momentum going into district

    With a stunning comeback victory over North Bullitt earlier in the week marked by Benton McGill’s three-quarter court game-winner, host Nelson County didn’t require any miracles on Friday, as they coasted past Campbellsville 66-49.

    Nelson County (11-15) took control in the third quarter when senior forward Max Ryan (11 points) blasted to the cylinder on three straight scoring attempts, sending his club on an 8-0 run to start the second half on Senior Night.
