  • Learning curve: New coaches, system for young Lady Panthers

    The Lady Panthers basketball team is young. But what they lack in varsity experience, they make up for in effort and energy.
    That is what first-year head coach and athletic director Paul Stone, who took the reins from predecessor Randy Mefford, will be counting on for his team to be successful.

    Stone coached the past 11 seasons at Bardstown High School; the Lady Tigers were 11-18 last season.

    Instead, he received a reply that AOC won’t fund the estimated $28,830.
