  • SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Banshees,...

    Bethlehem is off to its toughest start since Shaun Smith came on board to transform the school’s softball program in 2012, losing its first seven contests.

    On Monday, however, the Banshees had lots to celebrate in their long-awaited home opener, beating North Bullitt, 5-4, on Natalie Shaw’s walkoff double in the bottom of the eighth.

    Last Wednesday I made a delivery trip to Eastern Kentucky. It was raining when I left Bardstown, and it continued to rain all day. It just varied in intensity.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Eagles...

    Bardstown was no match for host Campbellsville Friday in the rescheduled opening-round game in the 5th Region All A Classic, falling 6-1.

    The Eagles (2-4) got a run across in the first on a double and two sacrifices, and two more in the second on two singles and a hit batsman. The only run for the Tigers (2-5) came in the sixth after they were already down 6-0. Jase Phillips and Gray Clark each singled, and Phillips later scored on a passed ball.

    Bardstown will be in Gatlinburg for the Smoky Mountain Invitational starting Thursday.

    Nelson County senior tennis player Morgan Thompson is this week’s nominee for The Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Morgan carries a 4.284 weighted GPA and is involved in several clubs around the NCHS campus, including National Honor Society, Beta Club, Student Council and others, and also finds time to work at Keystone Cinemas and intern at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center.

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

     

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Mixed...

    The weather complicated matters some for this year’s installment of the Keaton Hall Wood Bat Memorial tournament at Bardstown, but with some deft field work, play continued on through Thursday after press time with only a handful of cancellations.

    The tournament is played in honor of former Bardstown star Keaton Hall, who died in an automobile accident in December 2015. The tournament raises money to fund a scholarship for Bardstown students in Hall’s name.

    Nelson County’s track team this season will lean heavily on a group of key returnees known for scoring points, but coach Dan Bradley is also hopeful that his underclassmen can be quick studies and be the wave of the future.

    “It’ll be a very interesting year,” Bradley said. “We’ll be counting on our veterans for points.”

    He’s got a number of up-and-coming middle-schoolers who he said have been getting good instruction from a patient group of seniors.

    Compete in the present with an eye on the future.

    That may be coach Matt Hoyes’ philosophy as his Thomas Nelson tracksters head into the 2018 season.

    The coach had to replace some key personnel from last year’s squad, but is pleased with the potential of some of his young athletes.

    The Bethlehem track and field team is continuing to grow in numbers, and coach Jim O’Hare thinks his team is on pace to be a top squad in its region this season.

    “When I first started track and field at Bethlehem, we only had a total of eight athletes combined, boys and girls,” he said. “In four years, we have quadrupled that number and have exceeded my expectations. We also had a goal of becoming a top three team in the regional championship. So far we are right on track.”
