  • BARDSTOWN TIGERS TENNIS PREVIEW: Tigers look to ride seniors, Spencer

    Bardstown enters the 2016 tennis season with high hopes for a big breakthrough behind an experienced lineup featuring several seniors, as well as a talented sophomore who is on the cusp.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Banshees finding their stride

    Bethlehem dropped its first two games of the season, but the Banshees are turning the corner just in time to defend their All A Classic 5th Region title.

    The Banshees (5-3) have won five of six since that start, including a come-from-behind 12-11 win Monday over Elizabethtown and Wednesday’s easy 15-0 decision over Bardstown.

    On Wednesday, Tiger pitchers had control problems, which led to an 11-run first inning by the Banshees.

  • 2016 KENTUCKY STANDARD SOFTBALL PREVIEW: NC going through youth movement

    With the loss of three key starters to graduation from last year’s team, Nelson County softball coach Chris Mattingly knew that he would be depending on some young players to play roles in for his team in the 2016 campaign.

    Little did he know he would need them to grow up quick.

    Three more starters — Lindsey Wilson signee Bailey Parsons, a senior, sophomore Krista Holt and freshman Mattie Robbins — quit the team after the season’s opening game against Hart County.

  • 2016 KENTUCKY STANDARD SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Senior-heavy Generals look to turn the corner

    Thomas Nelson is off to a rocky start in the early stages of the season as the bulk of the lineup undergoes major position changes, but the Generals think their group of seven seniors can see them through toward turning the corner.

    “We’re seven seniors strong, so that’s a lot of experience we have and a lot of mental awareness we can see on the field,” senior Taryn Roby said. “So that’s really where that comes into play, and just knowing the game is a really big part of it.”

  • 2016 KENTUCKY STANDARD SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Tigers seeking breakout year

    Filled with a cast of five seniors and seven juniors, including six returning starters, the Bardstown Tigers are gearing for what they hope is an extended season with a deep run in tournament play.

    “We have come a long way,” Tigers coach Shawn Boggs said. “Since taking over this program, we have really improved in terms of our fundamentals and team unity.”

    Boggs, who starts her third season, said her team’s overall development has brought in a lot of nice players and this could be a special year.

  • 2016 KENTUCKY STANDARD SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Banshees gunning for fifth straight title

    When you’ve won four consecutive district softball titles, your opponents tend to be gunning for you with added incentive.

    That’s why Bethlehem senior Megan Myers says it seems like she had a bull’s-eye on her back instead of a number.

    “Since my sophomore season, we haven’t lost a game in the district,” she said. “We have a big red X on our back, not just from every team in our district but in the region.”
