  • TRACK: Teams close regular season at Bardstown Invitational

    Senior Marly Walls captured first place in two events as Nelson County finished fourth in Thursday’s Bardstown Invitational track meet.

    She won the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 16:68 and then was nearly two seconds ahead of runner-up Kamry McFayden in the 300 hurdles with a time of 48.84.

    Walls also tied for second in the high jump and third in the triple jump. Her 33-08 in the triple jump was good enough for a school record.

  • BASEBALL: Tigers win two against Nelson Co.

    What a difference a day can make.

    Just 24 hours after defeating Nelson County 2-1, Bardstown’s bats came to life in scoring 15 runs in the first three innings of a 15-1 rout of the Cardinals on Friday.

    The Cardinals did score the first run of the game in the top of the first as sophomore Lucas Bendock singled to open the game and promptly stole second base. He advanced to third on Barrett McGill’s hit. Bendock scored his team’s only run on Benton McGill’s single to left field.

  • SOFTBALL: Banshees score comeback win over LaRue Friday night

    It was a wild one in Hodgenville Friday night as Bethlehem used a pair of big innings, including a three-run seventh frame, to score a 13-12 win over the Hawks.

    But it took a nine-run fifth inning for the Banshees to overcome an earlier 6-0 deficit.

    They managed only one hit in that final inning, but took advantage of three LaRue County errors.

    Eighth-grader Lilly Padgett walked to open the inning and advanced on Savannah Beyerle’s single.

  • TRACK: Teams still strong as season winds down

    The high school track season is nearing the end of the line with regions next week, but Bardstown’s boys put up a strong performance in Tuesday’s Lincoln Trail Heartland Conference Championships at Elizabethtown with a runner-up performance in a power-packed meet.

  • SOFTBALL: Thomas Nelson takes first seed in 19th District

    With the wind blowing out hard to straightaway center at Thomas Nelson Wednesday, it looked like it might take double-digit runs to win the showdown for the top spot in the softball district seeding race between the Generals and Bethlehem.

    That especially seemed to be the case after the Generals took a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first after back-to-back homers by Sydney Gagel and Kaillee Miller.
