  • Bethlehem students raising funds...

    A senior Social Justice class at Bethlehem High School is hosting a volleyball tournament this evening for an Advent outreach project to benefit Puerto Rico.

    Katie Kiefer, who teaches the semester-long course at Bethlehem, said the students typically do two service projects a year, one for Lent and one for Advent.

    "Ultimately, we came up with the idea to help Puerto Rico because the devastation was so intense," she said, referencing how Puerto Rico was catastrophically affected when hit by Hurricane Maria earlier this year.

    Thomas Nelson hasn’t enjoyed a great deal of success in its boys’ basketball program, notching just seven wins over the past three seasons.

    But this year’s Generals have a new coach and an experienced backcourt in what figures to be wide-open 19th District, providing optimism.

    It was about his time a year ago, with their season opener just a few weeks away, Thomas Nelson girls’ basketball coach Patty Rouse was probably still trying to remember the names of her players.

    Rouse had only been named the coach in September and did not have the advantage of working with her girls in the summer and much in the fall while some players participated in fall sports.

    Fast-forward a year and you can see why Rouse is feeling much better as she prepares for her second season with the Generals.

    When longtime area coach William “Bev” Hart finally decided to hang up his whistle in the spring, Nelson County High School didn’t have to look far to find his replacement.

    Zach Allender, one of the most decorated players in NCHS and Campbellsville University history, was already on Hart’s staff for the past few years, and he figured it was time to take his shot.

    Last year’s Nelson County girls’ basketball season was a thrill ride for the ages, with controversy and adversity in the form of a midseason coaching change that threatened to rip the team apart. Instead, however, the Cardinals bonded together, overcame a historic regional roadblock and made their first Sweet 16 trip in 27 years.

    One year ago Bethlehem started the season 8-0, not tasting defeat until late into December. The Eagles eventually went on to a 20-9 record, but fell to Nelson County in the district semifinals.

    This year Bethlehem is hoping for even more success, but that will have to come from some new faces after graduating six seniors and entering the season with a new head coach.

    The Bethlehem Banshees surprised many a year ago, taking a team of only freshmen and sophomores and finishing the season with a record of 15-14.

    This season the team will be looking for even more success with all of their experience coming back, as well as some key newcomers and returnees.

    In his seven years as head basketball coach at Bardstown, you would think James “Boo” Brewer has encountered almost any situation imaginable.

    However, that’s not the case as Brewer finds himself in unchartered waters as he prepares his team for the 2017-18 season.

    En route to winning 40 consecutive district games and six of the last seven titles, Brewer’s teams had the right combination of veterans and talented young players.

    Could this be the year?

    Not since Bardstown defeated Nelson County 56-54 on February 29, 2008, has a 19th District team other than the Cardinals cut down the nets and claimed a district title.

    With her entire team back from last season — a year in which they went 22-10 and lost to Nelson County in the district finals before giving region powerhouse Elizabethtown fits before falling in the regional tournament — Bardstown coach Amber Courtney is hopeful her team can snap the Cardinals’ run of eight straight championships.
