  • Banshee win gets team back on...

    Bethlehem raised its record to 6-10 on the season Saturday with a 44-30 win over visiting Deming.

    The Banshees were able to shut down Deming’s 2,000-point scorer, Erin Carmack, holding her to six points.

    “We realize we are nearing the end of the season and we need to keep improving — especially defensively and rebounding,” Bethlehem coach Terry Janes said.

    The Banshees were led by Beka Cecil with 13 points. Cecil had knee troubles earlier in the year that limited her practice time, but Janes said the 6-0 junior is playing herself into shape.

  • Nelson squeaks by Adair


    Sarah Beth Gillis canned a trio of three-pointers Friday on the way to a game-high 20 points, leading homestanding Nelson County past Adair County, 47-39.

    The win was the Cardinals’ third straight, raising their record to 12-9 on the season. Adair County dropped to 7-10.

    Sophomore Carli Burton had 19 to lead the Indians.

    Samantha Drake pitched in 10 for the Cardinals, and Lacy Hagan hit three three-pointers to score nine.

  • Second half unkind to Cards


    Defending 5th Region champ Adair County outscored Nelson County 13-6 in the fourth quarter Friday to hold off a Cardinal upset bid, 44-35.

    The Cardinals (9-8) held a 19-16 lead at halftime and were down by two going into the third quarter. Nelson coach Minor Harmon said the shots just didn’t fall for his club in the fourth quarter, and a strong effort on the boards by the Indians proved too much to overcome.

    “We gave up some offensive rebounds (and putbacks) to them that just killed us,” he said.

  • Three-peat!



    It was close for a quarter, but Bardstown took over after that to win going away over Campbellsville, 86-67, to win the Tigers’ third straight “All A” Classic 5th Region title and advance to the “All A” state tournament Thursday in Richmond.

    “The kids put four good quarters together,” Bardstown coach Gary Goode said. “We needed them to hold them off.”

  • Three-peat!



    Bardstown weathered a furious comeback Friday by Green County to win 66-61, capturing its third consecutive “All A” Classic 5th Region title, punching a ticket to Richmond and the “All A” state tournament in the process.

    “We’ve been looking forward to this tournament all year and wanted to get back to Richmond, and we did it,” Bardstown coach Paul Stone said. “The girls are real excited.”

  • Cards find silver lining

    Year Three of the Nelson County wrestling program has been a trying one at times, as injuries have kept would-be starters off the mat and on the sideline most of the year.

    But the Cardinals got some good news recently, with three JV wrestlers and one middle school grappler qualifying for their respective state tournaments.

    “It’s always encouraging when you have good wrestlers coming up through the program,” Cardinal coach Jason Detre said.

    Jordan Hickman scored six straight points in the third quarter Wednesday, sparking an extended 17-1 run by Bardstown to put away Caverna 58-39 in the “All A” Classic 5th Region semifinals.

    “I can expect it out of me and my team,” the junior guard said. “We still need to work on playing all four quarters.”

  • Bardstown blasts Caverna

    Bardstown came out on fire Wednesday with a 14-1 run to start the game, pressing Caverna into submission by the end of the first quarter in a 56-30 rout in the semifinals of the “All A” Classic 5th Region tournament.
