  • Common thread of history ties...

    Bardstown is well known throughout the state as a football powerhouse, with four great big state championship trophies to prove it. But it’s also been known as a major player in track and field, and there are enough banners commemorating those state titles to make a new curtain for the Apollo Theatre three times over.

    “Bardstown sports as a whole is a very successful program,” Logan Edelen said. “All of these guys that are on this team have experienced it in one way or another.”

  • Tigers' march a '...

    It has been a thrill to cover the Tigers during their run through the district and regional tournaments. This team has ascended to heights the boys’ basketball program has not seen since 1971, the last time the Tigers made the trip to the Sweet 16.

    What has impressed me the most about this team and its coaches is their ability to stay calm while all around them are literally and figuratively losing their minds. Their approach is to win and move on, keep it on an even keel.

  • Unselfish mix keys Tiger run

    With Corey Hall knocking down clutch three-pointers and free throws, and Jordan Hickman stuffing the stat sheet with eye-popping point, assist and rebounding totals, it would be easy to look at the Bardstown Tigers as a two-headed monster.

    Easy, but folly.

    “All 12 people have to contribute — in any way,” if Bardstown is to be successful, Hickman said.

  • Bardstown HS chorus to perform...

    Bardstown’s boys basketball team is heading to Rupp, but they’re not the only Bardstown group appearing in the state championships.The Bardstown High School Chorus, under the direction of Jeff Stone, was selected to perform the National Anthem and “My Old Kentucky Home” at Saturday’s championship game of the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls Sweet 16.“It’s just amazing … it will be amazing,” Bardstown choral group member Ashley Hicks said of the honor of performing at the state championship game.&ldqu

  • Tigers King of this jungle

    Bardstown erupted for 53 second-half points Tuesday to race past Central Hardin 84-74 and capture the school’s first 5th Region championship since 1971.“It’s just an amazing feeling to be able to see a bunch of kids who are great young men work hard and listen and do what you ask them to do,” Bardstown coach Gary Goode said.

  • Tigers thrill in Munfordville

    MUNFORDVILLE - Corey Hall loves to hit big shots. His latest put Bardstown into its first 5th Region championship game in 27 years, with a chance at the Tigers’ first Sweet 16 trip since 1971.

    Hall, a senior, picked up a loose ball with four seconds left in the game and drove the length of the floor for the winning bucket as Bardstown scored six unanswered points in the final minute to score a come-from-behind 52-50 win over Elizabethtown in the 5th Region semifinals Monday at Hart County.

  • Cardinal upset bid falls short...

    RADCLIFF - A deliberate Nelson County kept the reins on eighth-ranked Elizabethtown for 25 minutes, but the Cardinals couldn’t keep pace with the Panthers’ 16-7 closing run in a 51-38 5th Region semifinal loss Sunday.

    Throughout the game, Cardinal coach Kelly Wood could be heard counseling his team to slow down, saying “easy ee easy ee make them come out.”

  • Tigers plow into semis

    MUNFORDVILLE — Bardstown’s roster is loaded down with juniors, but Thursday it was seniors Corey Hall and Logan Edelen who came up with the big plays to keep the Tiger season alive.

    Hall scored 10 of his game-high 25 points in the final two minutes and Edelen came up with three key second-half buckets Thursday to lead Bardstown into the 5th Region semifinals with a 72-66 win over Taylor County.

    “They really stepped up — like senior leaders should,” Tiger coach Gary Goode said.
