  • GIRLS' SOCCER: NC’s Skrine...

    Taylor Skrine has been a dependable stalwart for Nelson County girls’ soccer coach Mike Glass for years, anchoring the Cardinals’ back line.

    “Very reliable — she’s been one of our captains for a couple of years, and has a good vision for the field,” Glass said. “I think Spalding will really like how she sees the field.”

    Skrine signed last week with Spalding University to continue her career at a ceremony at Nelson County High School. She’s looking forward to her next stop.

    Nearly two decades ago, the 5th Region Officials’ Association was having a meeting a short time before Christmas.

    The thought had occurred to longtime basketball official George Miller that the region’s refs could do some good by giving back to the schools where they call their games.

    And that’s how the local “Toots for Tots” program was born, said Wayne Edwards, treasurer of the association.

  • STRAIGHT ARROW: Patience and...

    My 11-year-old granddaughter Hannah has gotten to spend quite a few hours in treestands this year, starting with some bowhunting in September, then three hunts during the earlier youth season, and continuing last week during the firearms season.

    Last Sunday, Hannah and Eric had climbed into a stand, and over the next couple of hours had watched five different small bucks. Hannah enjoyed watching these young bucks and learned a little more about deer behavior.

  • WRESTLING: Cardinal wrestlers...

    After a couple of years of thin numbers, Nelson County coach Josh Conder said the Cardinals have a good chance to move forward this year, with about 14 kids on the roster, and most of them with good experience under their belts.

    “Nelson County is actually going to be — going back to my first year at Thomas Nelson — the most experienced I’ve had,” he said.

    The Cardinals have a pair of seniors, one of whom is their lone state qualifier from last year in Michael Donaway.

  • WRESTLING: Year 3 could be best...

    It hasn’t taken long for Bardstown to become a player on the local wrestling scene.

    Entering just its third year as a varsity sport, the Tigers’ wrestling program already has four state qualifiers in its short history, including three last year, all of them sophomores at the time. It’s been an exciting and surprising time for Bardstown coach Jason Tilley.

    “It was totally a surprise,” he said. “It’s been really great as far as building the team and really helping us elevate to that next level.”
