  • Tigers, Cards get tough tourney...

    Bardstown suffered its first loss Friday, a 63-51 decision to Fern Creek, but won two games in the Lady Panther Winter Classic at Pleasure Ridge Park to move its overall record to 8-1.

    The Tigers responded to their first loss of the season with a 52-45 overtime win Saturday morning over Jeffersontown. The Tigers faced Moore for fifth place in the tournament in a Saturday afternoon game too late for this edition of The Standard.

  • Local teams to be tested in...

    With a pair of recent wins by 50-plus points, Bardstown has rolled out to an impressive 6-0 start, winning by an average of 32 points per game. Only one of the first six has been decided by less than 10 points, an overtime win over John Hardin.

    Bardstown whipped Frankfort 68-17 Tuesday, and won 68-18 over Fort Knox last Friday.

  • Names are all we have

    Learning the lay of the land in a new community is never easy.

    My learning curve since coming on board in June has been a steep one, but I’d like to think I’ve kept up reasonably well, with the help and patience of those I cover and those I serve — you readers and this paper’s management.

    But sometimes I miss the mark, as Justin Pile can attest.

    Not once, but twice this basketball season we (I) have misspelled the Nelson County basketball player’s name, and for that I apologize.

  • Cards win, Eagles fall in first...

    Nelson County advanced with an easy win, but host Bethlehem fell in first-round play Wednesday in the Athlete’s Choice Classic holiday tournament.

    The Eagles fell 55-33 to Southern in the opener, while Nelson County moved forward with a 75-52 win over Evangel Christian.

    Also advancing Wednesday were North Hardin in a 62-58 win over Washington County and North Bullitt with a 75-74 win over Seneca.

  • Tigers now 6-0

    Bardstown won its sixth straight Tuesday night against a scrappy Kentucky Country Day team. The Tigers struggled at times but came out on top 61-49.

    “I thought we played good ball in getting a double digit lead early,” Bardstown coach Gary Goode said. “We played a lot of the game as if it would be easy, (but) we had spurts from time to time to keep them at bay.”

  • Edelen inks with WKU

    PLogan Edelen says he’ll miss the variety of other sports he participates in at Bardstown High, but that will be tempered by the thrill of taking his golf game to the next level after signing a letter-of-intent with Western Kentucky University.

    “It’s pretty amazing I’m where I am after starting eight or nine years ago, getting to play golf in college,” Edelen said. “It doesn’t seem real.”

  • Bethlehem cruises past Waggener

    Bethlehem used its decided height advantage to good effect Monday, rolling over visiting Waggener, 63-27.

    The Banshees won their second straight against three losses. While finishing strong, Bethlehem coach Terry Janes said his team was slow out of the gate, leading only by four (17-13) at the end of a quarter.

    “I thought we were flat from an energy and focus standpoint,” Janes said, “but we did a good job of running sets and opening it up inside.”

  • Eagles drop fifth straight

    Washington County dealt Bethlehem its fifth straight loss Friday, coming back from 10 points down in the first half to beat the Eagles, 65-62.

    It was the Commanders’ first win since 2004 against the Eagles, snapping a five-game skid, and it also broke their nine-game losing streak against 19th District opponents.

    “Bethlehem owned us last year,” Washington County coach Paul Bodenhamer said. “To come out and finally get (a district) win, especially on the road, was absolutely crucial for us.”
