  • BOYS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP:...

    Friday night’s game between Bethlehem and Washington County was such a barnburner that both coaches should have been charged admission for their front-row seats.

    “If you didn’t enjoy that basketball game for your $5, you don’t enjoy high school basketball,” Commanders coach Bernard Smalley said.

    Smalley had just seen his team drop a scintillating 75-74 decision to the homestanding Eagles in a contest that shows just how balanced the 19th District race is shaping up to be.

  • COLLEGE SOCCER: NC’s Jackson...

    At Savannah Jackson’s signing ceremony last week at Nelson County High School, Brescia University women’s soccer coach David Ralph couldn’t help but marvel at a collage of photos of the Cardinal keeper in action.

    One could almost see the wheels turning in his head as he took in the images of Jackson making diving, leaping saves of shots, or straying far out of the goal to stop attacks. “Fearlessness” and “relentlessness” were words he used a great deal to describe the Nelson senior’s play.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: Crepps’ college...

    Kirsten Crepps thought she might get a chance to continue her athletic career in college.

    After all, she’d been starting on the Bethlehem softball team since she was a middle-schooler, and was one of the top players in the region as a junior last season, and was gearing up for a big senior campaign. And she also had an eye on the military as well.

    Sometimes, however, life sends you down different trails. For Crepps, that trail was the cross country variety.

  • On the record with: NCHS’ Nathan...

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

    Nathan carries a 4.2 weighted/3.9 unweighted GPA while participating on the Academic Team as well as on the school’s new Vex Robotics Team, in addition to running track and cross country.

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

     

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Nelson boys...

    Garrett Miles scored 12 of his game-high 22 in the third quarter Monday as Nelson County erased a halftime deficit to take control on the way to a 67-56 win over visiting Franklin County.

    The Cardinals (2-4) were down 31-28 at halftime, but outscored the Flyers 25-10 in the third on the way to snapping a three-game losing streak. Nelson County was in action Tuesday after press time against Washington County in a key district game.

    Eli Shewmaker netted 14 and Benton McGill scored 13 for Nelson County in the win.
