  • TEE TIME: Bourbon Open makes new...

    When you write for the paper, work for a television station, or open your mouth on the radio, you are apt to open yourself up for things.

    Believe me, I know.

    I’ve been involved in all three businesses, and have embarrassed myself numerous times.

    Therefore, I shouldn’t have been surprised by a couple of things that happened this past week.

    You might recall that I played in my first ever Bourbon Open in 2017 and lived to write about it.

  • 19th DISTRICT SOFTBALL...

    SPRINGFIELD — Carolyn Martin always wondered what it would be like to have a walkoff game-winning hit.

    The Nelson County junior can now tell you how it feels after her two-out, two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning gave her Cardinals a 6-4 win over Bardstown in the 19th District softball play-in game Monday at Idle Hour Park.

    “I was so excited when I saw that pitch coming,” she said. “It was a little inside, so I had to turn on it. I knew from the sound of the bat that it was finally going to happen.”

  • 19th DISTRICT BASEBALL...

    SPRINGFIELD — Bethlehem rallied three times in Monday’s 19th District tournament first round, the last one putting Thomas Nelson away for good with a two-out rally in the bottom of the sixth to advance with a 7-5 win.

  • STRAIGHT ARROW: A road trip

    After a long season of NASP tournaments and three weeks of turkey hunting, Bonnie and I decided to take a road trip vacation. We decided to head east into West Virginia, Virginia and then south to Tennessee and finally home.

  • CLASS 2A STATE TRACK AND FIELD...

    LEXINGTON — No state champions emerged from the three-school contingent competing in Friday’s and Saturday’s rain-soaked Class 2A state track and field championships, but a handful of local athletes did make a splash.

  • PHOTOS: 73rd Bourbon Open...

    Rob Martin of Bardstown reacts to just missing a 60-foot putt on the second hole in Friday’s play in the 73rd Bourbon Open. The tournament is taking place this weekend. Find more coverage on the sports pages inside Wednesday's edition of The Kentucky Standard.

  • CLASS 2A STATE TRACK AND FIELD...

    LEXINGTON — The rains fell hard and fast on Friday’s Class 2A State Track and Field Championships at the University of Kentucky, putting the meet on hold just 90 minutes in and forcing it to be postponed to Saturday.

    The Class 2A meet had just two boys’ and two girls’ races in the book at the time of the delay, and will pick back up at 4 p.m. Saturday with the girls’ 100-meter dash, following completion of the Class 3A meet, which starts at 10 a.m.

  • BOYS' SOCCER: Eagles’...

    Daulton Harrison has been through a lot in his four years on the Bethlehem soccer team.

    As a freshman, he was part of a team with his brother Beaux that won the 19th District championship en route to an 11-9-1 season.

    Things weren’t quite so rosy the next season with the loss of 15 seniors and first-year coach Jody Spalding starting a rebuilding process. Bethlehem managed just five wins , all against teams with losing records.

    Bethlehem managed three wins in 2016, but rebounded to capture another district title in Harrison’s final season.
