  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Tigers...

    Before the season started, Bardstown baseball coach Glenn Koger felt strong about his team’s defense, but was concerned about how well they would score runs.

    But after producing 36 hits and 26 runs in a three-game sweep of Nelson County last week, he can probably put some of those fears to rest.

    Bardstown tallied 15 hits in Friday’s 12-5 win at Nelson County to sweep the series, one day after putting up 13 hits in an 8-5 Game 2 victory.

  • STRAIGHT ARROW: Out for walks...

    With opening weekend of turkey season over, I waited until Wednesday, April 17, before I got a chance to get out again.

    I was up at 5:30 a.m. and was silently moving to a ridgetop to listen for gobbling as the sky gradually cleared. I waited about an hour, moved to another area, waited and listened some more, but after hearing nothing I headed to work.

    The next day, I went back to the same farm, but was going to have a long hike to get to the area I wanted to set up at, so I got up at 4:45 a.m. to have time to get to the spot before daylight broke.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: TNHS takes...

    Thomas Nelson snapped a four-year losing streak against 19th District teams earlier this week, taking two of three games in the Generals’ series with Washington County.

    The Generals’ last district win came May 18, 2015, a 7-5 victory over Bardstown in the 19th District tournament. Until Tuesday’s 5-3 victory over Washington County, Thomas Nelson had dropped 42 in a row against district teams.

  • TEE TIME: Leave it better than...

    (Editor’s note: This column has run in previous years, but the writer feels it is worth repeating, especially at a time every household in Nelson County will receive this issue of the paper.)

     

    To get to the first tee at the Lebanon Country Club, a golfer must pass by a plaque under a flagpole that has the following inscription:

    “In memory of George Mattingly … greenskeeper 1965-1988 … In appreciation of the respect, guidance, and encouragement he gave many young golfers.”

  • GOLF: Cox tabbed as new pro at...

    Steve Cox tilts his head back and gazes up as he recalls the day he discovered a love for the game of golf.

    He was 8 years old, and as he had done on many other occasions, he had accompanied his father, Corky Cox, and three other men from Hodgenville to Lebanon for a round of golf at the Lebanon Country Club.

    “It was on the 8th hole,” Steve Cox said, his eyes glimmering with a smile. “My dad gave me his left-handed club and I gripped it cross-handed.”

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Cowherd...

    When Eljay Cowherd joined the Bardstown Tigers as an eighth-grader, coach James “Boo” Brewer said he knew the point guard would be a special player for him.

    Terms such as “gym rat” and “gamer” are among the descriptors Brewer uses when talking about Cowherd, who helped lead Bardstown to its greatest success in school history.

    “He’s literally one of the kids we had to kick out of the gym,” Brewer said. “But he still found ways to get into the gym.”

  • On the record with: TNHS junior...

    Thomas Nelson junior Clay Cecil is this week’s nominee for The Kentucky Standard/PLG-TV 13 Student-Athlete of the Week.

    Clay is involved in tennis at TNHS, teaming up this season with Caleb Dixon to form the Generals’ top boys’ doubles squad. In addition, Clay is also involved in the school’s chapter of Fellowship of Christian Athletes and he participates in 4-H shooting sports.

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