  • SWIMMING: Outlook good for NC,...

    Carmen O’Neill is all smiles when she talks about the upcoming season for her swimmers from Thomas Nelson and Nelson County.

    Not only has she returned several of her swimmers from Nelson County who qualified for the second day of last year’s regional competition, but she also has a record number of athletes on her team from Thomas Nelson.

  • BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Nelson boys...

    Marion County may have won the Nelson County Classic round-robin, but the Knights were not able to get the best of the host team.

    Coach Zach Allender’s squad jumped out to 41-14 halftime lead and then held off a hard-charging Marion County rally to capture its fourth win of the year, 74-61.

    Benton McGill scored 11 of his team high 21 points in the final quarter when Marion County erupted for 31 points, one more than they scored in the first three periods.

  • Bow hunting Christmas weekend

    Any chance of getting to bow hunt over the Christmas weekend didn’t look or sound very good when I left work at noon on Friday; it was starting to rain and the forecast was for a lot of rain over the next couple of days.

    Saturday, with the rain falling all day, I got several things done at the archery shop, and I also found enough time to take several shots with my bow, not just because I enjoy shooting but because I needed the practice to help me with my form and my shot sequence, when and if I got the chance to go bow hunting.

  • Area teams go three-for-four in...

    Taylor’s double-double propels Bethlehem

    Jacob Taylor scored 28 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Bethlehem to a 66-52 win over St. Francis in the NAS Tournament at Carroll County.

    He scored 10 of those points in the second quarter when Bethlehem outscored the Wyverns 18-7 to pull away to a 31-16 halftime lead.

  • Orr hits milestone Saturday in...

    Saturday night was a special one for Thomas Nelson senior Bethany Orr.

    Not only did her team defeat Breckinridge County 65-58 to claim third place in the LaRue County Lady Hawks Holiday Classic, but Orr joined Madison Fritz in the school’s second member of the 1,000 Point Club when she scored 13 in the win. She also pulled down 11 rebounds.

    Bailey Stiles led the Generals in scoring with 23 points, while Kenleigh Fritz added 11.

    Thomas Nelson (5-6) will be idle until Jan. 4 when Louisville Collegiate visits.

  • Area archery teams’ numbers keep...

    What high school sport is showing the greatest increase in participation in recent years and had a local student win a state championship yet is unbeknown to most fans?

    If you guessed archery, you are probably in the minority.

    Coaches at all four schools here say their numbers are on the rise, with more and more students joining their teams.

    David Carrico is the coach of Bethlehem, the alma mater of 2017 KHSAA champion Kristen Sedlatschek, and he thinks he knows one of the reasons.
