Taylor County High School’s boys’ basketball program has not won a Fifth Region Tournament semi-final game since the Cardinals last claimed the title in 1983.
TCHS’ 10-year run (1974-83) has only been matched by North Hardin as the Cardinals won championships in 1974, 1977, 1980 and 1983.
In the 30 seasons since, Taylor County has lost to four 17th District teams in their 15 regional appearances — Meade County (1984), Elizabethtown (2004), John Hardin (2007) and North Hardin (2009).
Another 17th District foe (Elizabethtown) awaits the Cardinals on Monday at 6:00 in the Roby Dome at Marion County High School in Lebanon.
