  • SOFTBALL: Thomas Nelson takes...

    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.

  • BASEBALL: Teams seeding for...

    Washington County clinched the top seed in the 19th District baseball seeding race Wednesday, dealing Bethlehem a 4-1 home loss at Dean Watts Park on a night when the Eagles were honoring the 50th anniversary of the closing of St. Joe Prep by sporting the former school’s throwback uniforms.

  • TEE TIME: What’s your go-to club...

    Favorites.

    We all have them.

    Whether it is a color or a bourbon or a beer or a food or a restaurant, in nearly every aspect of our lives, we often side with something that we enjoy or feel comfortable with.

    That includes golf clubs.

    I’m not talking about a particular brand, but which club in your bag would you consider your favorite?

    What is your go-to club?

    You know the one I am talking about.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Cards’ late...

    When Bardstown and Nelson County meet on the softball diamond these days, entertaining games seem to follow, including a pair of wild, back-and-forth games much like the teams’ last two meetings in the district tournament.

    Monday was no exception, as the Cardinals rallied late to pull away from a one-run game to win 16-12.

    The Cardinals (2-9) battered Tiger pitching to the tune of 17 hits while snapping a seven-game losing streak.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Tigers get...

    After a three-game sweep of Thomas Nelson, Bardstown is back firmly in the hunt for the top seed in the 19th District baseball seeding race.

    The Tigers currently sit at 6-2 in district play and are in second place after Washington County, which is off to a 7-1 start and has handed Bardstown its two district losses. Game 3 in their series was postponed from its original date in late March and is scheduled for May 7 at Springfield.

    Thomas Nelson senior Grace Calhoun is this week’s nominee for The Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Grace carries a 4.04 GPA and is active on campus at TNHS as the tennis team captain, president of the school’s National Honor Society chapter, and also participates in bowling and academic teams.

    Kentucky Standard sports editor Peter W. Zubaty had some questions for Grace to better get to know her.

     

  • Bethlehem places 7th at state...

    Bethlehem turned in one of its best performances of the year in finishing seventh in the KHSAA state archery tournament Thursday.

    Coach David Carrico’s team posted a 1,992 total, 38 points behind champion Bullitt Central.

    “As a team, I thought we did extremely well,” Carrico said. “We had one girl (Emily Dendinger) who shot a 288, and that was her personal best. If you think about it, our score was just nine points away from us finishing in third place.”
