1949 REGION CHAMPS

In March of 1949 a newspaper story about J.H.“Hooks” Harvey, first year coach for the Bardstown High basketball team, noted his success in coaching his team to the championships of the SCKC Conference and 24th District and Sixth Region. They went to the state contest for the first time since 1935. Held in Louisville, they lost their first game to Madisonville 63-50. The biggest rivalry in town was the game between St. Joe and Bardstown on February 19, 1949. The game was at St. Joe’s gym and the tickets sold out. The Kiwanis Club arranged to pipe the game to the courthouse where it could be heard on loud speakers. Everyone was invited at no cost and the overflow crowd half-filled the courthouse. The Tigers won 58 to 42 over the Eagles.
