  • Bardstown's Moschetti runs...

    Bardstown runner Phillip Moschetti signed a letter-of-intent Thursday to attend Brescia College in Owensboro on a cross country scholarship.

    “It means a lot, because I didn’t really have the chance to participate much in high school,” the senior said. “It’s a great honor to do this and further my education as well.”

    Moschetti picked up cross country late in the game, opting instead for soccer and football earlier in his high school career. He switched his focus to cross country after his sophomore year.

  • Bardstown depth keeps...

    Bardstown has enjoyed a strong recent run of success, scoring back-to-back 20-win seasons and region semifinal appearances, as well as an “All-A” Classic championship and runner-up appearance.

    “We’ve set the goals high — we always want to get back there” to the “All-A” Classic, senior Corey Hall said. “We know what it takes, we just have to do it.”

    The Tigers lost three starters from last year’s 21-10 squad, but there are plenty of experienced veterans returning.

  • Centre places 14 on SCAC All-...

    After posting a 6-4 overall record and a 4-3 mark in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) play, the Centre College football team has placed 14 players on the 2007 SCAC All-Conference football team as voted by the league’s head coaches.

    The Colonels had two first-team defense selections and the lone first-team punter, along with two second-team offense selections, three second-team defense picks and a second-team kicker. Centre also had five players earn an honorable mention, including three on defense and two on offense.

  • Bardstown rolls over Spencer;...

    Bardstown’s sticky pressure defense gave Spencer County fits Tuesday in the teams’ season opener, cruising to an easy 60-39 win.

    “It’s always important to start off on a good note,” Tiger coach Paul Stone said. “It’s all about the confidence.”

    Three Tigers had double-figure scoring nights, led by Daizah Kimberland’s 22.

  • Lots of newcomers in Bethlehem...

    Just like the school’s girls team, Bethlehem’s boys have that new car smell to them — new players, new coach, new challenges.

    “It’s definitely been an adjustment period,” first-year head coach Mike Ayersman said. “I’ve had so much thrown at me in a short time. It’s been exciting and exhausting.”

    Bethlehem went 18-11 last year, winning the district before bowing out in the first round of the region. But the Eagles’ lone returning starter hasn’t adjusted his expectations.

  • Nelson defense keys win

    Nelson County turned up the heat to start its season, running and pushing the tempo to win going away over visiting East Jessamine, 56-36.

    Using relentless pressure defense the Cards had 22 steals on the night and held East Jessamine to 34 percent shooting from the field.

    “What we preach is defense,” Cardinal coach Kelly Wood said.

    Nelson County (1-0) also dominated the glass, outrebounding the Cougars 55-36 and the pressure defense also forced 25 turnovers.

  • Eagles finish off with late run

    Mike Ayersman got his head coaching career off on the right foot Tuesday, as his Bethlehem club turned back visiting Hart County, 53-44.

    “That’s my first win,” the former Bowling Green High and Western Kentucky assistant said. “It feels good.”

    The Eagles (1-0) had enjoyed leads of about 5-7 points throughout much of the game, but the Raiders upped their defensive intensity and put together a spurt to pull ahead 40-36 early in the fourth quarter.

    “They got to us a few times,” Ayersman said, “but our kids never quit.”

  • Senior moment

    Nelson County’s season ended in disappointment last year in the form of a 15-point loss in the first round of the district, leaving a Cardinal group of 11 juniors with some motivation to end their careers on a high note in their senior season.

    “We didn’t go as far as we’d liked to,” Jesse Beavers said. “We want to come out and prove we should’ve gone farther.”
