  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Tigers’ Love takes her game to Berea

    It’s easy to see why Destanie Love plays the game with an uncommon joy. She nearly never got the chance at all.

    Unable to participate in sports as a youngster because of a childhood illness, the recent Bardstown graduate took to the court with a fury once she was finally cleared to play in fifth grade, and it paid off.

  • 5th REGION BASEBALL QUARTERFINALS: Campbellsville bats wake up to beat Bardstown, 11-1

    HODGENVILLE — Whatever momentum Bardstown had in building a 1-0 lead on Campbellsville Friday night in the long-delayed 5th Region quarterfinal matchup between the teams melted away quickly when play resumed Saturday.

    After their first nine batters were retired in order, the Eagles erupted for four runs in the fourth then seven more in the fifth to run away with an 11-1 win, ending the Tigers’ season.

  • 5th REGION BASEBALL TOURNAMENT: B'town-C'ville halted by weather

    HODGENVILLE — Not even a change in venue could get the 5th Region baseball tournament back on schedule.

    Bardstown and Campbellsville finally got to take the field for their region quarterfinal game five days after it was originally scheduled, but the teams only got 2 ½ innings in the books before lightning was spotted in the area of LaRue County High School, suspending play with the Tigers (17-18) holding a 1-0 lead.

  • 5th REGION SOFTBALL QUARTERFINALS: MC's Mattingly casts a spell on TNHS bats

    LEBANON — Thomas Nelson got an extra night to sleep on its first 5th Region softball tournament appearance in school history thanks to Monday’s storms.

    Unfortunately, the Generals’ bats never woke up against standout Marion County pitcher Haley Mattingly after play resumed Tuesday, and the host Knights knocked Thomas Nelson out of the postseason by a 3-0 decision.

  • Weather postpones baseball region games again

    Bardstown and Campbellsville were due to play Monday’s late baseball quarterfinal at John Hardin, but play was suspended to Tuesday before those teams even saw the field. Before the Tigers and Eagles can play, first up is the resumption of Monday’s LaRue County-Elizabethtown quarterfinal. The Hawks held a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second in that game.

    Those games were set to be restarted Tuesday evening, but an afternoon storm rolled through the area, pushed everything back another day.

  • BASEBALL/SOFTBALL: Region draws announced

    Coming in as a district runner-up, Thomas Nelson was bound to face a difficult first-round draw in its first-ever trip to the 5th Region softball tournament, which starts Monday at Marion County.

    The Generals (14-9) got just that, as they will take on the host Knights in the last game of the day Monday, at 6 p.m. Marion County (20-6), the 20th District champ, has been among the top teams in the region all year, and has two wins already over Thomas Nelson this season: a 6-0 road victory March 26, and a 13-0 win in Lebanon two weeks ago.
