  • GOLF: Local girls fall short of...

    Thomas Nelson freshman Alexis Daniel came up with the top local score among girls at Tuesday’s Region 3 Championships at Lincoln Trail Country Club, carding a 90.

    Unfortunately, Daniel, who placed seventh, missed the cut for a state qualifying berth, which was 83.

    Daniel and her fellow Thomas Nelson golfers were the only local team to field a full squad, and the Generals placed fifth in the team competition with a 468.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Banshees,...

    Bethlehem locked up the top seed in the girls’ 19th District soccer tournament, edging Bardstown 3-2 Wednesday at Lally Field to extend the Banshees’ win streak over district rivals to 19 matches.

  • Bardstown to induct five into...

    Bardstown is hosting its rescheduled Athletic Hall Of Fame night during Friday’s home game against Waggener. Five new inductees will be introduced during halftime of the game. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m., and there will be a reception in the fieldhouse following the game.

    • Joseph Blackmon, Class of 2002, was a standout in basketball and track, as well as in football, where he was a key member of the Tigers’ 2001 Class 2A State Championship team and a member of the Kentucky All-Star team.

  • CROSS COUNTRY: Tiger girls 4th...

    More than 40 teams were participating in Saturday’s 19th annual Hillbilly Run at Thomas Nelson High School, with Nelson County’s Jackson Boone posting the best overall finish of any local runner, placing eighth out of 101 participants.

    Boone’s time of 17:19 was a little more than a minute back of the winning pace set by Sair Salgado of Fern Creek.

    Bethlehem’s Carl Loohuis (17:53) was 13th, while Bardstown’s Caleb Flanagan (17:56) ran 14th. Nelson County’s Nathan Fell and Bethlehem’s Nico McCann also placed in the top 20.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Banshees...

    Bethlehem went 1-1 in All A Classic play over the weekend, advancing to the tournament semifinals, then returned Monday with a 5-2 home win over Nelson County to stay ahead of the pack in the 19th District girls’ soccer standings.

    Bethlehem is 5-0 in district matches this year, and the No. 20 Banshees (10-4-1) have a chance to take the top spot for the third straight year if they can beat Bardstown (10-4, 4-1 dist.) tonight at Lally Field.

  • On the record with: Thomas...

    Thomas Nelson junior Riane Clark is this week’s nominee for The Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Riane carries a 4.0 GPA while competing for the Generals in golf and softball, and she’s also involved in Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the school’s Student Organization Council.

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

     

  • REGION 4 BOYS' GOLF...

    Junior Cooper Parks fired an 8-under par 64 to lead Taylor County to a 13-shot win in the Region 4 Golf Championships held Monday at his home course at the Campbellsville Country Club.

    Parks, who has committed to the University of Kentucky, capped his round off with a hole-in-one on the 120-yard par-3 finishing hole.

    Parks’ team tallied a 293 total, well ahead of crosstown rival Campbellsville. Both of those teams will advance to next week’s state tournament in Bowling Green.
