    GREENSBURG — In just her first year in varsity track, Bethlehem sophomore Jeanie Downs became an instant impact player, winning a region championship and contributing to another runner-up performance.

    Downs, a high-flyer for the Bethlehem volleyball team, found her abilities translated well to track and field, winning the long jump and placing third in the high jump at Friday’s Class 1A Region 2 championships at Green County. She also anchored the Banshees’ second-place 4x100 relay squad along with Buckley Sparks, Laurel Guthrie and Sydney Greenwell.

  • BASEBALL/SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: TNHS holds its own destiny in softball district race

    Following a 12-2 win over Nelson County Tuesday, Thomas Nelson is in the driver’s seat for the top seed in the 19th District softball tournament, needing just one win to clinch outright.

    There is still a chance for a three-way tie, depending on how Thursday’s Bethlehem-Thomas Nelson game played out. The game was too late for this edition of The Kentucky Standard.

    With an 8-3 win over Bethlehem on Tuesday, Washington County finished out its district slate at 5-3, with a tiebreaker over the Banshees, who sat at 5-2 as of Thursday morning.

  • BASEBALL: Eagle OFer Bickel signs

    Many people may consider the railroad industry as a thing of the past, but not Bethlehem senior Shawn Bickel.

    For as far back as he can remember, Bickel has been enamored by the railroad system.

    Not just being the engineer on a train, but he loves everything about the business.

    It might be working on a track, maintaining signals, or designing the electrical system.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Generals one step closer in softball districts

    After a pair of recent one-run wins over last year’s 19th District champion and runner-up, Thomas Nelson is staring at a golden opportunity to position itself as the team to beat on the softball scene.

    The Generals (10-5) won for the eighth time in the last nine contests and remained undefeated at 4-0 in district games with Monday’s 3-2 home win over Washington County (11-12, 4-3 dist.), recording a season sweep of the two-time defending district champions.

  • 5th REGION TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS: Rough sledding for locals on Day One

    ELIZABETHTOWN — Monday’s opening rounds of the 5th Region Tennis Championships proved a big hurdle for local entrants, as only three of 32 survived into Tuesday’s quarterfinals, and only 11 made it past the first round.

    The girls’ singles draw is where the most noise was made, with seeded players Selena Spencer of Bardstown and Morgan Thompson of Nelson County recorded straight-set wins in their first- and second-round matchups.

  • 5th REGION TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS: NC's Thompson grabs elusive state berth

    ELIZABETHTOWN — Nelson County’s Morgan Thompson extended her senior tennis season by at least another week Tuesday, gutting out her 5th Region quarterfinal match against Elizabethtown’s Anastasia Newsome to earn a berth in next week’s state tournament.

    With that win, the Cardinal senior got to achieve a goal that had remained elusive since she took over as Nelson County’s No. 1 girls’ singles player as a middle-schooler.
