    Nelson County’s baseball team has won four in a row since a 3-1 loss last week to No. 1 Pleasure Ridge Park, and the Cardinals have been knocking the cover off the ball while out of town on Spring Break, scoring 10 or more in its first two games in Tennessee.

    “We’ve hit the ball pretty good,” Nelson County coach Brent Childress said.

  • Nelson Co. off to a slow start

    Nelson County managed to get a pair of games in last week in between the cloudbursts, falling 9-3 to visiting Taylor County, but scoring a 3-1 home win over John Hardin.

    Tuesday against Taylor County, Nelson County got all its runs in the third inning to take a 3-1 lead, but could not score after that.

    Morgan Roby and Sarah Beth Gillis each went 2-for-4 with a run scored, and Lacy Hagan was 1-for-4 with two RBIs.

    Taylor County (3-0) scored five runs in the fourth to go up for good.

  • Yates swings away

    Hard work in the classroom and on the links can lead to big things, Bardstown native Bethany Yates found out last week when the Murray State junior was named Ohio Valley Conference Golfer of the Week.

    The 21-year-old Bethlehem graduate got perhaps the biggest accolades of her career for leading the Racers to the team title in the Shamrock Intercollegiate at Tega Cay, S.C., hosted by Winthrop University. Yates fired a 16-over par 232 for the three-round event; her final-day score of 75 helped her move into fifth place overall and swing the team title in Murray’s favor.
