  • ARCHERY: Bethlehem RU in NASP...

    Bethlehem is getting used to playing the bridesmaid role in the NASP regional tournaments.

    Coach David Carrico’s team finished in second place this past weekend, the fourth year in a row they’ve been in that spot.

    His squad’s score of 3,341 was well behind first place Bullitt Central (3,452).

    “Bullitt Central is probably the best team in the state,” Carrico said. “They’ve been shooting around 100 points better than us all year. They are that good.”

  • GIRLS' 5th REGION...

    CECILIA — Nelson County shook off a cold start to take the first step towards defending its 5th Region title by knocking off a young Campbellsville squad 54-29 on Monday at Central Hardin High School.

    The Cardinals did it without Miss Basketball candidate Marly Walls scoring a single point in the first quarter.

    Instead, Loren Seely and Amelia Hodges accounted for 12 of the team’s 14 points in the opening eight minutes to stake Nelson County to a 14-6 lead.

  • BOYS' 5th REGION TOURNAMENT...

    Bardstown will play the opening game of the 5th Region Tournament when they take on Campbellsville at 6 p.m. Wednesday night at Marion County.

    The Tigers (17-11), who won their fifth straight 19th District title on Saturday with a 61-45 win over Bethlehem, own two victories over 20th District runners-up Campbellsville (15-15), and both of them were thrillers.

    The first came on Dec. 30 in the final game of the Campbellsville Holiday Classic when they escaped with a 59-58 decision.

  • BOYS' 19th DISTRICT...

    SPRINGFIELD — The system works.

    Despite debuting an almost entirely new lineup with very little experience on the school’s four previous district title teams, Bardstown won its fifth straight district title Saturday over Bethlehem, 61-45, at Washington County High School, using coach James “Boo” Brewer’s patented brand of frantic pressure defense and riding whoever is the hot hand that night.

  • GIRLS' 5th REGION...

    The defending champs will be the first to hit the court when the 2018 girls’ 5th Region tournament gets underway Monday night at Central Hardin.

    In a draw filled with potential land mines, Nelson County (18-13) got the best possible quarterfinal opponent in surprise 20th District champ Campbellsville (13-18), which stunned Marion County in their district final Friday. The Cardinals and Eagles face off at 6 p.m. Monday, and have not played this season.

  • GIRLS' 19th DISTRICT...

    SPRINGFIELD — Bardstown finished the game with an 18-7 run to pull away from Nelson County Friday and win the school’s first girls’ 19th District championship since 2008.

    “I’m on cloud nine,” Bardstown senior Destanie Love said. “I was just bawling my eyes out. It’s surreal being able to do this senior year.”

  • STRAIGHT ARROW: Plan now for a...

    If you have any thoughts of doing a bowhunt in one of our Western states, now is a good time to start planning for these hunts, because locating a place to hunt and the procedure of buying or applying for a permit all take research and time.

    First, is there a particular big-game species that you would like to hunt? Once you decide on the species, talk to anyone you know who has hunted that species in the past, and get any pointers they can give you about where to go and even how to bowhunt that species.

  • BOYS' 19th DISTRICT...

    SPRINGFIELD — The basketball scores that draw the most attention during postseason play are those rare occasions when a four or five seed pulls the upset of a top seeded team.

    As he prepared his team to face top-seeded Bardstown in the semifinals of the 19th District tournament at Washington County High School, Nelson County coach Zach Allender left some not so subtle messages for his players on the board in their dressing room.

    “Shock the world.”

    “Do the improbable.”
