  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Banshees...

    Nelson County’s boys started hot and finished strong Monday on the road at Western Hills, rolling to a 69-55 win.

    Cory Green hit for his only buckets of the game, a pair of threes, in the first quarter as the Cardinals jumped out to a 17-6 lead. Eli Shewmaker didn’t get into the act until the second half, but he scored all 16 of his points after the break as Nelson County outscored Western Hills 44-29 to close out the win.

  • On the record with: Bardstown...

    Bardstown senior basketball player Evan Newsome is this week’s nominee for The Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Evan carries a 3.9 GPA and is the local chapter president and Kentucky state vice-president for Future Business Leaders of America, and is involved with a number of other clubs and organizations at Bardstown, including the Y-Club Judicial Program, Pep Club and National Honor Society.

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

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Eagles...

    Behind Jacob Taylor’s 22-point, 15-rebound effort Friday, Bethlehem was able to hold off Thomas Nelson’s upset bid with a 65-58 win and lock up the No. 3 seed in the 19th District tournament, which starts in two weeks.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Banshees...

    Just like Tuesday against Bardstown, Bethlehem got off to a slow start at home in its regular-season district finale Friday against Thomas Nelson, falling behind 9-4 after one quarter.

    The next three quarters, however, were all Banshees as they outscored the Generals 62-35 the rest of the way in recording a 66-44 win to lock up the No. 3 seed in the 19th District tournament, which starts in two weeks.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Tigers...

    Bardstown did just enough down the stretch Friday to hold off a Nelson County comeback effort and preserve its spot atop the 19th District standings with a 78-68 road win.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Cards...

    Bardstown nearly authored one of the most stunning comebacks in local high school basketball history Friday, rallying from 31 points down in the first half at Nelson County to cut the deficit to one possession in the final seconds.

    The Cardinals did just enough to hold off the Tigers at the end, however, as a free throw by Zaria Burton and two more charity tosses by Amelia Hodges in the final minute gave Nelson County the cushion it needed to record a 67-64 win and clinch the No. 1 seed in the district tournament.

  • STRAIGHT ARROW: A trip to...

    Last Tuesday I had to make a delivery run to Oil Springs in Eastern Kentucky, and after getting loaded, I left the shop just before 8 a.m. There had been a skim of snow when I had left home, and the temperature was just above freezing.

    When I left the shop where I work at Filter Clone, a wintry mix was falling, so I was pretty cautious as I drove toward Bloomfield, where I got on the Bluegrass Parkway.
