  • PREP HOOPS ROUNDUP: E’town girls...

    Top-10 Elizabethtown used a 9-0 run to close out the third quarter Friday, and that proved to be the difference as Bardstown’s girls fell 60-50 on the road in a rematch from last year’s 5th Region championship.

    The Tigers were up a bucket at halftime, but the Panthers got a combined 13 points from Leikyn Walker and former Bethlehem standout Ellie Taylor in the third to pull ahead for good. Walker finished with 14, and Taylor had 13. The Panthers’ Whitney Hay scored 15.

    Jerry is a four-year starter in football and basketball at the school, and recently joined Thomas Nelson’s 1,000-point club. He carries a 4.1 weighted GPA and is involved in the Student Organization Council at the school, and also volunteers two days a week at the Flaget Cancer Center.

    Kentucky Standard sports editor Peter W. Zubaty had a few questions for Jerry to better get to know him.
