    The Class 2A meet had just two boys’ and two girls’ races in the book at the time of the delay, and will pick back up at 4 p.m. Saturday with the girls’ 100-meter dash, following completion of the Class 3A meet, which starts at 10 a.m.

  • BOYS' SOCCER: Eagles’ Harrison inks with Spalding

    Daulton Harrison has been through a lot in his four years on the Bethlehem soccer team.

    As a freshman, he was part of a team with his brother Beaux that won the 19th District championship en route to an 11-9-1 season.

    Things weren’t quite so rosy the next season with the loss of 15 seniors and first-year coach Jody Spalding starting a rebuilding process. Bethlehem managed just five wins , all against teams with losing records.

    Bethlehem managed three wins in 2016, but rebounded to capture another district title in Harrison’s final season.

  • On the record with: B’town senior Allie Walsh

    Bardstown senior Allie Walsh is this week’s nominee for The Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Allie was a key leader for Bardstown’s volleyball team on its way to winning its first-ever district championship in the fall, as well as for the Tiger girls’ basketball team, which made it all the way to the region championship for the first time in school history.

  • Downs twins heading to DePauw, together

    Twin sisters Abby and Maggie Downs signed with DePauw University, Ind., last week, continuing their volleyball career together, at the college level, a high point for the family.

    The Downs family has experienced a lot of high points over the past couple years. Abby and Maggie helped lead Bardstown to its first-ever region tournament as juniors, getting the Tigers all the way to the 5th Region championship game. A few months later, their brother, then-senior Lucas, won the state pole vault championship for Bardstown.
