  • FOOTBALL: TNHS can’t keep pace...

    Thomas Nelson fans had barely settled into their seats Friday night when Washington County junior Jbias Dawson returned the opening kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown.

    His 6-yard run on the Commanders’ next possession stretched the lead to 14-0 with 8:18 left in the opening period.

    After pulling camp, our caravan of 10 Quads proceeded on across the tundra. It seemed like we could have been on Mars; there was very little vegetation and no sign at all that humans had ever been in this area before. In fact, most of the younger guides said they had never been to this area before.

    Some of the high ridges were rocky, boulder-strewn and wind-swept areas that reminded me of the tops of Colorado’s 14,000-foot mountains.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: C’ville...

    Bardstown was denied a trip to the All A Classic boys’ soccer sectionals at home Wednesday, as Campbellsville prevailed over the Tigers 3-2 in overtime.

    Thomas Sidebottom netted two goals to bring his season total to 15 for the Tigers, but it wasn’t enough as Bardstown was held out of the goal in overtime. Reece Sharp assisted on one of the two goals.

    Blase Wheatley’s score in overtime broke the tie for the Eagles (5-3-1), and they were able to hold onto the lead the rest of the way.

  • Sports safety encouraged during...

    As students head back to school, many will become involved in organized athletics like football, a high-impact sport that has a high risk for injury. Football is the leading cause of school sports injuries, sending more than 466,000 students to hospital emergency rooms in 2012, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. That’s why Flaget Memorial Hospital, part of KentuckyOne Health, is encouraging parents and young people to educate themselves on ways to prevent football injuries.
