Bardstown Kentucky Sports

On December 15 and 16, talented performers from the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Ebenezer Belt Museum will perform to discover the true meaning of Christmas. Garlands, mistletoe and stockings full of toys are trimmed and decorated to the brim, and visitors experience an Old Kentucky home. The house is decorated with unique Kentucky themes such as "Birds Make Music" and "The Day the Birds Made Music," as well as traditional Christmas decorations.

Main attractions in Bardstown include the outdoor musical "The Stephen Foster Story" and the Old Kentucky Dinner Train will host its annual Christmas dinner on December 15 and 16. Santa Claus from Indiana comes by to check if you really have a holiday trip.

One of Kentucky's most important cultural festivals, the Bardstown Kentucky Bourbon Festival, is a week-long bourbon celebration that attracts over 50,000 visitors from around the world to Nelson County. There are six distilleries, including the Old Kentucky Distillery in the heart of the city, as well as a number of local breweries, restaurants and bars.

Kentucky fans love their guys, just as they love the five stars John Calipari brings each year. Five-star recruits will always be abundant, but it's true in-state talent, and there are some prospects from outside Kentucky State who, in the case of Coach Cal.

Traynor, a 20-year-old graduate of Bardstown High, will continue his basketball career this winter at the University of Louisville, but the plan is to hold an event to watch him practice. Dr. Shea is also the medical director of the Center for Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation of the Kentucky State Health and Human Services Department and the medical director of health services at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Louisville, Kentucky. In addition to his medical expertise in sports medicine, including sports and industrial injuries, Dr. McKee is also in the emergency room at Louisville General Hospital and U of L Hospital.

He graduated from the University of Louisville School of Medicine, where he also completed his residency in orthopaedics. During his medical studies, he completed a residency at Wake Forest University and recently a fellowship at the Florida Orthopsaedic Institute.

He is also a member of the Kentucky Medical Board, the University of Louisville School of Medicine, and an assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at the College of Veterinary Medicine in Louisville.

After work, he likes to go to church and spend time with his wife and two daughters, hiking, camping, fishing and other outdoor activities.

He has good genes because his father Jason Osborne was a member of the U.S. Army national team and played for the Louisville Cardinals for two years. Louisville has always appealed to him, but his first scholarship offer for Division I came in May, and he received offers from Ohio State, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan State and Louisville. I like watching Kentucky And I've watched a lot of Murray State games this year because of Ja Morant.

It's not often that a three-star recruit gets an offer from the Cats, but Hayes was relatively unknown. He received an offer from Kentucky and out of the blue jumped to three-star status, and Calipari saw what became of him.

Moreover, Traynor had never played for the AAU until that summer and was beginning to attract the attention of high-level programs. He has taken his game to a whole new level and this exposure has finally helped schools see how talented he was.

Bardstown defeated Washington County in the first round of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) tournament last week. Elizabethtown beat Central Hardin 6-3 in a nonconference game on Friday night and then again on Saturday night.

Elizabethtown's third and Bardstown's fifth had DeSales slipping to fourth and Central Hardin to fifth in the KHSAA standings.

Both teams qualified for the KSR Top 15 rankings this week, and both cracked the top five in Class 3A. Elizabethtown controlled the regular season, but the Panthers scored two more tries to clinch their first title since 1969. The Tigers last won a national championship in 2001 (Class 2A), and they are the only team in the country to win three national titles in four years.

Elizabethtown coach and former Kentucky State University football coach Bill Brown said it was unusual for his team to win three national titles in four years.
